TX C170 2020 Christmas Party, Bryan, KCFD

Dear 170 Folks,

Our 2020 Pre-Christmas Weekend will once again be in Bryan, TX, at the Best Western Premier, 1920 Austin’s Colony Parkway. Our dates are Friday, December 4 - Sunday, December 6. Our courtesy room rate is $94/night. When contacting for reservations at 979-731-5301, use the identification code C17020 in order to receive the courtesy rate. Deadline for this rate is November 13, 2020. After that date, any rooms not booked will revert to general inventory. We have 14 rooms available at the reduced rate, so reserve your room as soon as possible.

Our weekend format will be similar to last year, with our Friday night dinner as a group at a location to be determined, and a group dinner Saturday night, also at a location to be determined, before returning to our hotel for our Christmas party and gift exchange. Once again, we have the Boon/Mitchell Room. Feel free to bring snacks or desserts from home to share at our party, and also one gift per attendee, a man’s gift for a man, and a woman’s gift for a woman, to be exchanged.

At our Friday night dinner, you will be provided with a list of suggested sites/activities you might enjoy while in the Bryan area. We will include maps, directions, and phone numbers. Two potential places are Peach Creek Vineyards, in Bryan, and BeeWeaver Bee Farm, in Navasota. They both open at noon on Saturday. Both require a bit of a drive, but the distance might be worth it. Peach Creek Vineyards has wine-tastings, tours, and a gift shop, and BeeWeaver has a free honey-tasting in the gift shop and mead-tasting in their new meadery, as well as a tour of their bee operation. Both Peach Creek Vineyards and BeeWeaver Bee Farm charge for tours and for tastings involving alcohol.

If any of you have other suggestions for activities, please shoot them to me.
