Dear Club Members,
I asked a committee to explore different venues in San Antonio and surrounding areas for our annual Christmas Party. The results were presented by Lisa Martin at our January monthly meeting. Based on the majority vote of members present at the meeting, we booked our 2018 Christmas party at the El Tropicano Riverwalk Hotel for Saturday, December 15th.
The committee explored many different options and they are excited about this venue. It offers opportunities to explore the sights of San Antonio with its beautifully lighted Riverwalk, the historic Alamo and San Fernando Cathedral, and other interesting sights in the area.
The hotel rooms were refurbished a year ago and the discounted rate of $99.00 plus tax is a reasonable price for the date and location (regularly $139.00 during the holidays). Rooms are blocked and members may take advantage of the $99.00 rate two days prior and two days after our party date. Reservations can be made by calling 210-223-9461 and asking for the Bluebonnet Miata Club rate… OR CLICK HERE TO BOOK ONLINE!
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please purchase dinner tickets and make room reservations by July 31st. The party will be advertised to other Texas Miata clubs in August.
It’s not too early to pay for your banquet tickets. For those who like to plan well in advance, you may write a check to: Bluebonnet Miata Club, and mail it to Marilyn Hamilton at 25138 Flying Arrow, San Antonio, TX 78258. Or, you may pay her at one of our monthly meetings. Based on your choice, listed below, the cost will be:
$33.77 per person for Chicken Marsala. This includes the entrée, linguine, vegetable, salad, house baked hot rolls, tea, coffee, and dessert.
$36.37 per person for Roast Beef (traditional served with wild mushroom demi-glace). This includes potatoes, vegetable, salad, house baked hot rolls, tea, coffee, and dessert.
Please do not make your check out to Marilyn. It must be written to Bluebonnet Miata Club.
We also negotiated reduced parking rates at the hotel in a separate area for our Miata’s which will be guarded by an off-duty San Antonio Police Officer at night. If you come just for the Christmas party, the fee will be $12.00 plus tax. If you stay overnight at the hotel, the fee will be $16.00 plus tax.
Details regarding other events (river barge ride, Sunday brunch at the Guenther House, and city tours) are forthcoming.
