    EARLY ARRIVALS - BACfest 2016 - Musketeers Unite!


    I am starting a new thread for corresponding about arriving early and our potential plans. All flexible, all fun, and .... who knows? So, for those catching a great tailwind .... or those planning an extra day or so, here goes:

    Please add your name if you will arrive in time to meet for supper on Wednesday, say about 5:00 pm -ish. Of course, if you plan to pull in sooner, share that as well if you wish. We'll make a composite list and get together (or maybe know who to avoid !!) when we arrive. Of course, since I am continuing the list started by Tom, he gets to be on top!

    Tom and Margie - - (driving from Dallas)
    Nelson - - (driving, with my sad face pressed against your side window if I see a pre-start checklist underway!)
    Paul W. - flying
    Chris N. (of course - - our smiling host)
    Michael D. (flying in from CO ?)

    I should arrive either very late Tuesday or mid-morning Wednesday. If we have enough airplane drivers, we might plan a quick flying trip for the early birds (Gastons?) just to get used to the area on Wednesday.

    Thanks in advance for your input and suggestions. Eventually this thread will have a "wrap up" with all of the names and cell phone numbers so we can coordinate an activity with a contact list. At the very least, we can meet up Thursday morning at the airport and heckle the arrivals!

    Rule #1 - - - this may not add any work to Chris N. !!!! If fact, let's be a resource to help if needed. Musketeers unite!

    Linda and I are planning on going to the Dixie Stampede on Wednesday evening. It is a dinner and performance. It is pricey at about $50, but the food is not bad. The performance is spectacular. I suggest that anyone who is going to be there Wednesday evening consider going with us. We have seen it once before and are excited to see it again. By the way, we will be flying in Tuesday evening.

    Weather permitting, I will arrive Wednesday afternoon, BAC style. I'll be leaving from my sister's place in Camdenton, Mo, so it's a whole 85nm flight! I can arrive any time if would be convenient for someone to meet me at the airport.

    Am I doing something wrong or is the main BACfest schedule and attendee list missing? I looked at it a week ago, but can't find it today....

    No, you are not doing anything wrong and you are not in the Twlight Zone. Yours truly added a new attendee (2 actually) and hit apply and save, like I have done many times before, and presto... it was different this time. I have help trying to fix it. I have 3 more to add to this but for some reason I'm a bit afraid to touch it again (gosh, after last time I don't know why!).

    Here is the list as it was before I "added" to it. Sorry. MD

    Make your plans today for BACfest 2016! Branson is an Ozark town in southwest Missouri known as a family vacation destination. Its 76 Country Boulevard is famously lined with theaters, which once hosted mostly country music performers but today present diverse entertainment. Also along the strip are Silver Dollar City, a 1800’s-themed amusement park with live music, the landmark Marvel Cave and Dolly Parton’s Wild West-style Dixie Stampede dinner theater. Branson has some of the finest fresh-water fishing in the United States with Table Rock Lake, Bull Shoals Lake and Lake Taneycomo surrounding this destination. Branson also has award-winning golf courses designed by such names as Fazio, Palmer, Nicklaus, and of course Payne Stewart with great valley and mountain layouts.
