Willy's Short Notice Trip to Nassau
Willy Teaches Jiu-Jitsu in Nassau
Willy was in bed in Providenciales, and just after 8:00 AM, the phone rang. Nanci, our company accountant (and model employee) called him and said, "I'm on my way to your house, can you catch a 9:30 AM plane? Dave (the boss) wants you to go to Nassau for a couple days." Willy made the flight with plenty of time to spare. He stayed in Nassau for a month working with Norm on the Cristal Wireless project. Part of the job was testing wireless signal strength in Nassau downtown, and in the harbour. Willy taught at a local Martial Arts school while he was there, where he met Clem, Carlos, Oneysi and Niqui.
Willy Went to Grand Cayman
While Willy was in Nassau, there was a big fire with 3 story flames by the cruise ship terminal that took out several buildings, and came dangerously close to our Cashwiz store on Bay Street. From Nassau, Willy was brought to Grand Cayman for a week, where chickens can be found in unusual places.

Life on a Yacht
Chad accepted a job managing a Cashwiz store, but flew from Providenciales to Nassau to begin the job with our company. He met Willy there and stayed with him on the yacht, on Paradise Island, close to the Atlantis resort. They were there to assist in the filming of a new reality TV show. They also had a small role in the show. On one of the days, the film crew needed the boat, so Chad and Willly went with Cristal to the waterslides at the Atlantis resort. On a different film shoot, Chad went with the film crew on the boat to an area with many reef sharks. As the story was reported, Chad was snorkeling well below the surface, when someone (whose name will be withheld) threw a hamburger in the water over his head. This excited the large grey sea life, in the path between Chad and his next breath of air. Discussions followed when Chad returned to the boat.
Kirk & Melanie Buy a Condo in New Jersey
Chad, Chad, Hanna & Willy Dive Eden Rock
Kirk and Melanie bought their first place. They bought a Condo in New Jersey. Hanna, Chad's girlfriend, a schoolteacher in Freeport, Bahamas, came to Cayman for a week. Willy, Chad McGhee, Chad Davis and Hanna did a dive at Eden Rock. It was the best dive Willy has ever done. It was a coral jungle with deep notches and caves. On another day, Chad M. took Chad and Hanna to Cayman's Stingray City via jetski. The stingrays are plentiful, large, and tame enough to handle. On another day, Chad began his flowrider obsession. Dave took Chad and Willy snorkel fishing for the first time. First you must locate the fish by having one or more volunteers put on a mask and snorkel and get pulled behind the boat. It is fun, and you cover a lot of ground. When the best spot is found, everyone gets out of the boat and gets a spool of line with a hook, bait and sinker. Caribbean locals call this spool a yoyo. Fishing is done while snorkeling. You drop the bait in front of the fish you are after. Several fish were caught. Chad caught a small Barracuda.

Chad went to the Bahamas (Nassau and Freeport) while his Cayman work permit was being processed. Willy and Deanna purchased their first right side drive car. Hanna came to stay with us for 2 weeks over the holidays. Deanna, Hanna, Emily and the kids went to the Turtle Farm. Christmas Eve was spent at the McGhee's with the McGhees and Clarks, where Emily made a great prime rib dinner. The highlight of the Christmas Eve was the fireworks. Dave bought a half a pickup truckload of fireworks. There does not seem to be a legal size limit here. You can buy things that shoot high and make BIG bangs. On Christmas Day we went to dinner at Dave and Cristal's place. Cristal made a wonderful meal for a huge crowd. Deanna is pictured taking her post meal Christmas day nap. McKeeva Bush, Cayman's Premier came to the Bodden Town Cashwiz store grand opening.
