Dear Club Members,

I know you’ve been hearing about the Bluebonnet Miata Club’s 2018 Christmas Party since January, but it’s getting closer and the committee has been hard at work. They asked me to encourage everyone to purchase tickets now, but no later than November 27th. The sooner they know how many to plan for, the better they can negotiate for one of the nicer ballrooms.

The annual banquet and gift exchange (nice gifts only, one per couple) is scheduled for December 15, 2018, at the El Tropicano Riverwalk Hotel. The program and other events are listed below:

Many of our members plan to stay overnight and some are staying all weekend to take advantage of city sights and tours, strolls along the Riverwalk and dining at one of the great restaurants in the area on Friday. The discounted room rate is $99.00 plus tax (regularly $139.00 during the holidays). This rate is good for two days prior and two days after our party date. Reservations can be made by calling 210-223-9461 or e-mailing avaldez@eltropicanohotel.com or hotelreservations@eltropicanohotel.com. Be sure to ask for the Bluebonnet Miata Club rate.


GIFT EXCHANGE: Nice gifts, please – NOT white elephant. Bring something you would really like to have at a value of approximately $25.00. In order to save time for other activities, it is recommended that couples bring one gift. If anyone wishes to bring something funny or unusual, please make sure something of value is included in the package (another gift or a gift card). Participation in the gift exchange is optional, but it is loads of fun so don’t miss out.
