    What's in it?

      Chris, aren't you going as a civilian? I wouldn't worry so much about it. Not much is expected of the the wives/girlfriends.

              It is important to be aware that the activities during a "Dining In" are completely different from those of a "Dining Out".

              There is no Grog at a Dining Out, it is a formal event, and normally a Military Ball follows the same structure for the most part - no deliberate hijinks.

              At a Dining In, which is normally not open to the public, or significant others (unless in that same unit) and, well, although formal in attire and structure, includes some other activities and accouterments such as the Grog bowl for those that fall short on procedure (among other things)...

                Tha ball went smoothly & had a great time. Probably my last one as a civilian, but it was still a lot of fun.

                Thanks for the advice everyone....I posted a pic in my profile.
