    HOTEL "FUN" - - - sheeese

    All,

    Well ….. I am ignorant and too trustfull. When the hotel sites list $83 and $73 as their rates … I believed them. Until I attempted to grab a room for two nights. Ok, got scammed (and now somewhat educated) by the individual hotel web sites. And visiting the "sales person" at the hotels (saying I could give them 18 customers) ended up with an offer of a rate per night that was MORE than I could book on-line. Sheese again …..

    https://www.guestreservations.com/pear-tree-inn-san-antonio-airport/booking?msclkid=a8e8d7edc659182d0b5389fa15080de9

    So …. please …. peruse the two finalists above for our event in San Antonio for May 1st to May 3rd (and any extra days), and let me know if you have any feedback.

    I am targeting an "economy plus" hotel close to the airport (with shuttle service), free breakfast, free wifi and also within walking distant of food and drinks. I will most likely have you book your rooms using your own particular methods (I typically use expedia when I travel). Unless there is a significant breakthrough with a hotel …. do not expect a "BAC special rate" for our BAC LITE event.

    Thanks in advance for your input.

    Nelson - did you know the Drury family (the same family that owns all the Pear Tree Inn's) also has a Beechjet that they use to commute between SAT - CGI - SUS. Perhaps they need an invite.... and can help with a block of rooms

    Nelson: Either will work for us, Pear Tree is Drury whom we like and we are HIE members. None of the events are hotel-based so to your point, we'll make our own reservations and post where we will be. SWMBO will be in charge of that part. We will arrive via ground, will have 4 comfortable seats or 6 narrow-loads available. (Pacifica misleading passenger capacity similar to hotel web pricing)

    Jane and I will plan on attending, and hope the weather cooperates to fly the SD from Georgia. It’ll be fun.

    Our intention is to do both. Fly and visit great BACers while we still can.

    Is there a list of definite/possible attendees? Looks like quite a turnout!

    All - - -

    New thread coming soon for BAC LITE 2020. I will be collecting attendee info and then create a list of those planning to come to San Antonio. Thanks so much for your interest.

    Yep - - I am keeping it simple!

    Still working for Saturday options during the day before our supper on the river downtown. Possible spot landing challenge at my airport, possible airport hangar-to-hangar walk, possible look at an aircraft collection here in San Antonio. Or we might just stuff ourselves with BBQ and call it good .....

    Nobody leaves San Antonio hungry!
