2019 Convention:
The Central Texas and Brazos Valley Bases are working together to bring you the 2019 National Convention in Austin, Texas. Come see why so many people are moving and visiting the Austin area. The Convention will be held from 14-20 Aug, 2019. Registration and the hotel room block are now available on the convention website: We have been listening to you for the last 2 years and taking your input and are trying to plan the convention that you want and have something for everyone. Check the website out for many of the details. As more information is received the web site will be updated.
The host hotel is the fabulous Renaissance Austin. The hotel is located in an area called the Arboretum, a large shopping and dining area. The hotel is situated so that there will be very little walking required to get to any convention events. It is located close to public transportation and a round trip ticket to/from the Austin Airport will cost only about $20. If you drive to Austin, overnight parking is $5 (disabled parking is free) and daily parking is free (such as for our RVers). We will have a large hospitality room combined with the vendor area with plans to have a cash bar in the afternoons, museum area, games, corn hole, submarine videos, slide shows, etc. We also plan to have a stage for some local live music acts and for you to be able to get up and show us what you have. Bring your guitars or whatever you play. The pool and patio area are great too.
We will have all the standard fare including the Welcome Aboard Party, Men's and Ladies Luncheons, Holland Club Breakfast and Awards Banquet. This year we are adding a Half Way Night Party. This party will be hosted by The Alibis - Austin, a Country Dance Hall Band. There will be dancing, cash bar and more. We hope to feature live music at the Welcome Aboard Party also and in a few other areas. Of course, there will be the Tolling of the Boat Ceremony, Central Texas Style.
The 2020 Convention will be in Tucson, AZ.
