We recommend you come in on Sunday, October 8th. Monday morning the convention kicks off with the Opening Ceremony. We will gather at 0845 and try to sit together. We also gather on Monday evening at 1800 for our usual picture on the steps inside the Convention Center and then attend the President's Reception that follows. Tuesday is the Eisenhower Luncheon and we all try to sit together at 4-5 tables. Tuesday evening is our Texas Friendly Reception at The Matchbox Penn Quarter, (see invitation below) and we are partnering with the Capital Region Chapter again this year. Finally, on Wednesday we have the Region IV Breakfast if you wish to attend and that evening is the Marshall Dinner for those wishing to stay for that. Most of us depart Wednesday afternoon but feel free to stay as long as you wish. We will assist with hotel reservations as well as getting the necessary tickets for the events.
