This is the “high” season for St. Augustine motels. *This is an excellent rate for the
Marriott Courtyard and Fairfield Inn motels. *All reservations are based on availability.
I STRONGLY suggest that you make your motel and car rental reservations. *The folks at Galaxy will be glad to answer any questions you have pertaining to your reservations.
Friday: Welcome pilots arriving at KSGJ. *Friday evening 5:30 to approximately 8:00,
we will attend the First Friday event with the St. Augustine Airport Pilots Association.
Cost of this event is $5.00 to $10.00 per person. *BYOB! *This depends on their menu.
Presently, that has not been determined. *I believe it will be close to the $5.00 price.
They have over 200 members. This is a great opportunity for both groups to meet
and share experiences and “hanger fly”.
Saturday: Welcome arriving members at KSGJ. *
Saturday will be a day for everyone to explore their choice of the many historic and fun attractions in and near St. Augustine. *http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g34599-Activities-Saint_Augustine_Florida.html
Saturday evening: We will meet at the conference center of KSGJ, for dinner. Our guest speaker will be Mr. Ron Stauss. *Mr. Stauss was Elvis Presley’s pilot. *I am
confident everyone will enjoy his presentation.
For dinner, we will have three choices of main dishes. *I will post the choices and
e-mail those that are interested. *Any dietary needs, please contact me.
There is the option of a group trolley tour of the downtown for “Nights of Lights”.
That would start at 9PM, and must be prepaid 7 days in advance. *Cost is $11.00
per person, if we have 25 people. *Tour lasts 45-60 minutes. *If we do not have
25 interested, you can go one of the public tours that run until 9PM. *
There will be a fee for Saturday nights’ activities. *We are doing everything we
can to keep the costs down. *I will post this as soon as I can. *
I encourage anyone who can, come earlier or stay later than our planned activities.
Sunday: *If members are interested, we will arrange for a group breakfast on Sunday morning. *Cost would be “own your own”.
If you are considering this event, please let us know ASAP. *We will have a
cut-off date for registrations. *We really need 20 members/spouses/guests to make
this work at the cost we feel to be very fair. *Please reply directly to me by e-mail.
