    BACfest LITE 2020 - May 1st, 2020 - San Antonio - feedback please


    Please see the attached. I would appreciate preliminary feedback from you all here on this forum thread during this next week on the level of interest, which will be critical to determine if we proceed with these plans for a Texas gathering.

    Many thanks,
    Nelson Amen

    Welcome to BACfest LITE 2020 !!

    My intent is to schedule an annual gathering six months after each BACfest, giving us a 2nd chance to meet each year.
    This first event will be held in San Antonio on the weekend of May 2, 2020. An outline of the details follows:
    Arrive Friday, May 1st for a two night stay

    • by commercial airline (SAT international). Frontier and Southwest Airlines are very economical carriers. Take hotel shuttle. Hotel rate will be about $90 per day.
    • fly your plane to 8T8 on the west side of town. Free parking on the grass and we will shuttle to/from our hotel near SAT airport. We will use the airport operations building at San Geronimo Airpark as our staging area.

    • Group supper 6:30 pm on Friday night near SAT airport. Then hotel breakfast Saturday morning.

    Saturday, May 2nd

    • Morning aviation related activity (to be announced).
    • Lunch BBQ
    • The main event - - supper on a River Barge downtown for the entire group

    Sunday, May 3rd

    • Breakfast at hotel with shuttle departures per your individual schedules
    • Group lunch for those still in town



    • Get a rental car to explore San Antonio. It is a great tourist town.
    • Arrive a day early to extend your stay. I will arrange this option with the hotel.
    • Stay Sunday night at our 5 bedroom lake house about one hour north of San Antonio. If the weather complies, we’ll work the details of lake sailing on Sunday or Monday. Subject to the number of persons requesting … of course.

    Thanks Nelson! Don't know if we can make it, but the San Antonio BACFest was one of the most enjoyable we ever had. Maybe it was because it was our first one and we got to meet all the real people in the club whose names were all we knew until then. We will see what next spring does to our plans.

    We are interested! Sounds fun. You may want to give this thread more than a week for gauging interest level to capture those who don't hit the BAC that often...

    I may go just to see if they erected a statue in honor of my time at Fort Sam Houston's Army medical school.
    On the map, Boston to Texas doesn't look too far in a Sundowner.
