The hospitality was exceptional and the volunteers were treated to dinners, parades and television appearances. LA County veteran Bruce Moncrief joined 6 Newport Beach Lifeguards, Greg Nadal, Bret Winners, Greg Meyer, Paul Collier, Mike Newmaster and Justin Skaggs to train 16 lifeguards from Esmeraldas and Atacames. Monica Williamson also helped the team.
