I’ve never been to WMC before. What should I pack?
Some of the events at WMC call for resort casual wear. Daytime resort attire for men can consist of polo shirts and shorts while evening resort attire would require nice slacks as well as polo or button down shirts. Women can wear skirts, dresses, or sundresses. We recommend bringing a light wrap or sweater for the evenings as the temperature can dip slightly.
