    DRAFT Tentative Schedule

    Hot Springs, AR April 8 – 10, 2022         

    Embassy Suites Hotel – We are NOT having a block of rooms.  Their policy would leave SWBS liable for cancellations.  We are asking everyone to make their own reservations and suggest making them very soon.  Once the holidays are over people will start making plans for the spring so let's beat them to it.  

     

    Just an FYI… Rich and I book through Booking.com because it allows you to cancel 48 hours before with no penalty.  Feel free to make arrangements however you like.  The stay includes complimentary full cook to order breakfast and complimentary evening reception from 5:30 to 7:30 with light snacks, beverages, including cocktails.

     

    The transportation hub is the Embassy Suite Hotel meaning that is the pickup and drop off spot. If you should choose a different hotel then it should be near the Embassy Suites Hotel at 400 Convention Blvd. Hot Springs, AR 71901. 1-800-362-2779.  There will be a $15 per person fee to help offset the cost of transportation.
