The Dillard House
This will be a "family and friends" reunion - a chance to get together and see each other and catch up.
The event is from 1:00 until 5:00 PM Sunday afternoon in the Straiton Room in the Conference Center on the Dillard House grounds.
There will be no "band concert" at this event.
We will have a small PA System and acoustic instruments only - "back porch pickin'" style.
There is NO CHARGE to attend this event, however, we will accept cash donations at the door to help cover the costs. The banquet room and light snacks cost $520 (up front costs covered by an anonymous donor who would like to be paid back). Each band member will incur at least $100 in travel cost, likely much more. We hope that at least 50 friends of the band will attend. You do the math.
The maximum capacity of the room is about 125 since we will be using some space for the "back porch pickin'". Band members with family will be 12-15 people, so our maximum capacity for guests could be about 110 people. In order to have plenty of space and a comfortable atmosphere, we are limiting capacity to 100 people total (85 guests), so please complete and submit the form below as soon as possible if you plan to attend.
You may choose to dine at the Dillard House, either having lunch before the event or dinner after the event, or both if you are really hungry. We are not organizing any official dining events, so plan this on your own. You are not required to dine at the Dillard House at all for this event (a situation that required some negotiation on our part). If you do plan to dine, please check the box on the form below so we can let them know that our event generated some business for the restaurant.
You may choose to book a hotel room at the Dillard House, even perhaps spending the weekend there. Rick will be arriving on Saturday afternoon and staying through Monday. There is no requirement to book a hotel (a sitation that required additional negotiation on our part). If you do plan to book a hotel room, please check the box on the form below so we can let them know that our event generated some business for the hotel.
