Dear CIGRE Companions, 

I am so excited to welcome you to San Francisco and to enjoy a few of our outstanding sites together!  Attached is a list of 5 tour options for our two days: Monday May 9, and Tuesday May 10. 

If you are interested in doing a group event, please respond by April 4th at cheer.melanie@gmail.com with your top 2 picks so that tickets (if necessary) may be purchased in advance.  The two most popular tours will be selected. I will send out a confirmation email prior to purchasing the tickets.

Please know that these tours are optional; you are free to explore the City on your own as well.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
