The New Jersey Guardsmen invite you to join us for the

2019 National Weekend

April 25 - 28, 2019

Sheraton Grand Los Cabos | Hacienda del Mar

See you at Our HOUSE!

    President's Welcome

    There is an old Mexican proverb that reads: Camarón que se duerme se lo lleva la corriente. The crude translation is “The shrimp that falls asleep is swept away by the current. You snooze, you lose.” We are thrilled that you all did not snooze and instead made the decision to join us for fun and sun in beautiful Cabo San Lucas.

    Jacques Costeau once called the Sea of Cortez "The Aquarium of the World” because of its beautiful sea life. It would have been hard for him to imagine that, for at least three days, this Aquarium would be inhabited by poorly-intentioned, wise-cracking, hard-partying Guardsmen and wives/significant others. Cabo ain’t seen nothing like a Guardsmen party……at least not in the past six years.

    We had such a great time in 2013 that we unanimously decided to DO IT AGAIN. This time we decided to buy out the entire hotel and invite you all to "OUR HOUSE". We wanted to provide the type of in-home entertaining that was a bedrock upon which this august organization was founded. So please, enjoy yourselves and make yourselves at home. Mi casa es su casa!!!

    Gratefully,

    .

    Weekend Co-Chair's Message

    Our Fellow Guardsmen,

    On behalf of the New Jersey Guardsmen we want to welcome you to “OUR HOUSE” in Los Cabos, Mexico. The beautiful turquoise waters, picturesque mountains and desert landscapes are a perfect backdrop for the first national weekend of 2019.

    Take a step back with us, to a time when home entertaining was a Guardsmen tradition. For this entire weekend, the Hacienda Del Mar will be exclusively Guardsmen and their guests, and our chapter intends to host and entertain you in “OUR HOUSE”. In keeping with the original purpose of The Guardsmen, we have worked to create a special environment where we all can party privately, purposefully and heartily.

    Thank you for accepting our invitation to join us. While you are here, make sure to obey the HOUSE rules; hang out, chill out and party by the sea. You are our guests and we appreciate you spending time with us. Every member of our chapter, and our significant others, are dedicated to making this a memorable weekend. Expect fine cuisine, top shelf libations, world class entertainment…and maybe some surprises. We hope you arrive rested because now, it’s on!

    Don’t let the weekend come and go without reflecting on the uniqueness of this social organization known as The Guardsmen; its rich history and accomplished members. As well, take in the overwhelming beauty of the Los Cabos area.

    The New Jersey Guardsmen look forward to continuing the rich tradition of impressive weekends our chapter is known for.

    Welcome to “OUR HOUSE”. If you need anything, just ask.
