ANNOUNCEMENT from our Convention Chair

With only days to go, the Lone Star Express 2013 Convention Committee is hard at work finalizing plans for a great convention next week. We are sure that all of our guests will enjoy the great clinics, layouts, operating sessions and tours that we have planned for them.

Earlier this week we finalized our charter contract with the company providing buses for the tours. In a few days we must finalize our head-counts with the hotel for the banquet and breakfast. Once these numbers are given to vendors, we are contractually obligated to fund services in keeping with those numbers. At the same time, we realize that "life happens". As such, we ask all registered attendees to let us know soonest of your need to change your plans. We may be able to fill your seat on a tour with someone on a waiting list. And we won't need to buy a meal if your not coming to the banquet or breakfast.

So that the Convention may honor it's contractual obligations, we will not be able to honor any request for refunds after midnight, Tuesday, May 28th. I trust all understand.

Looking forward to seeing all of you!
