OBA Update - November 6, 2000
SUMMARY: The official announcement of Bronco Fest III plans.
This is the first in a series of announcements and planning notes for BF III.
It is with great pleasure and excitement that the OV-10 Bronco Association (OBA) announces that BF III will be held in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex area during the period 5 - 7 October 2001. (Note: this has been changed. The correct dates are October 19-21. See the 1/3/01 update for more info. - MSW) Please bookmark this on your special events calendar for the year 2001.
The OBA has contracted with EEM Customs Tours. EEM is a will destination management company with a superb track record and an enthusiastic staff who is expert in creating and coordinating special events for organizations similar to OBA. EEM is managed by Carolyn Taylor Petty, wife of former USAF OV-10 pilot Ben Petty. A preliminary planning meeting with Carolyn and Ms. Toni Border, EEM's Director of Meeting and Conference Services confirms BF III will be a premier event.
We are looking forward to having a majority of our members and supporters attend BF III. Once the agreements for accommodations, special events, and local transportation schedules are established we will promulgate detailed schedules. We will be periodically mailing information as will as using our web site to keep you informed. We are also planning on having the option for attendees to register for BF III via electronic mail. We have taken into consideration for planning BF III those recommendations forwarded to us from BF II attendees.
Local OBA member Jim "Boomer" Bloomberg ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) will be our Project Manager for BF III. Any and all assistance you can provide Boomer such as additional recommendations will be appreciated.
I am looking forward to seeing you at BF III.
With warm regards,
Ron "Sand Dollar" Fix
