Louisiana Fly-In. October 27-29
Member Cheryl Kraemer from Sunrise Beach, TX is putting together a fun weekend event for us in Gonzales, Louisiana. The plan is to arrive at Louisiana Regional (KREG) by 1 pm the 27th of Oct.
On Friday afternoon, we'll tour some of the old plantation homes in the area. Saturday we'll visit the D-Day Museum in New Orleans. There may also be an opportunity to take in an airshow at Lake Front Airport right there on Lake Pontchartrain.
Presently, Cheryl as 10 rooms blocked at the Holiday Inn Express for $108 plus tax for our group with a 24 hr cancellation policy. If you're interested in attending, go ahead and book your room directly with the hotel at 225-743-8000 and ask for the American Yankee Group rate.
You’ll need to reserve a car through Enterprise who will drop cars off at the airport and allow us to leave them there upon departure. For that service you’ll need to book your car a week in advance at their local office at 225-644-2205. As the date gets closer and with more firm head counts, we can take a look at matching folks willing to share a car and split the cost.
More specifics will follow but please let Cheryl know if you’re planning to attend as soon as you can so she can better coordinate all the details. 225-445-2117 or email@example.com
