See below for our fun filled itinerary...
Friday we will fly into Signature Flight Support at Ellington Field (EFD) on Friday, Dec 6th. Please plan to arrive between 10:30-11:30 a.m. While waiting for all to arrive we have access to the Conference Room deck to watch others flying in.
There is normally a daily ramp fee at Signature Flight Support, but SWBS will be getting a nice discount: $30 for the entire stay with the purchase of fuel. We will also get a $.50/gal discount off the retail price for avgas purchases over the weekend.
After everyone has arrived, we'll take a short van ride on the Ellington Airport property and then enjoy a boxed lunch and tour of the Lone Star Flight Museum.
Mid-afternoon the vans will take us to the beautiful South Shore Harbour Resort and Conference Center to check into our rooms. Relax in the Marina Conference Parlour (our hospitality suite) until we leave at 4:40 p.m. for dinner at T-Bone Tom’s in Kemah. We will order from the menu and pay individually.
Saturday breakfast on your own in your room or the Paradise Reef Restaurant in the hotel.
We will go to the Kemah Boardwalk at 10 a.m. to explore the stores and sights on your own and pick one of many restaurants for lunch.
Then off to the Haak Winery at 1:00 p.m. in Santa Fe.
Return to the hotel around 4:30 p.m. for our 6:30 p.m. Christmas dinner in the Harbour View Room with a cash bar.
We have a block of rooms under Southwest Bonanza Society for $129 each night. Here is the link to book a room at South Shore Harbour Resort & Conference Center: SOUTHWESTBONANZA. (more detailed room reservation instructions are provided below)
We can add more rooms if needed. Contact Nancy Faust at email@example.com if you try to register and find our block of rooms is full.
Sunday the vans will be taking people back to Ellington from 8:00-11:00 a.m.
We think we have planned a fun-filled weekend and hope you will join us.Registration instructions for SWBS Christmas Party 2019
