Hot Springs, AR April 8 – 10, 2022
We have a fun weekend planned in Hot Springs, Arkansas. We are NOT having a block of rooms due to Embassy Suites policy leaving SWBS liable for cancellations. We are asking everyone to make their own. 35 members have already made reservations as suggested in December and again, in early January. Transportation provided by SWBS will be based at the Embassy Suites. If you choose to stay at a different hotel you will need to make your own arrangements to get to/from the transportation base at the Embassy Suites. We must limit the number of people attending to 41 due to restaurant seating constraints. 6 spots are available to members who have not pre-registered. Please note that with the rise in price of transportation we will have a $25 per person registration fee.Friday April 8, 2022
