The first link has something wrong...our system will not allow me to go in and correct it.

Just Google Gainesville, Texas and hit the home page.

The 2nd link is to the hotel and it's working fine.

I haven't exactly figured out where this city is but the inn provides hair dryers for my bald head and you can't do better than that, can you? If this is north of Ft. Worth and Dallas, you don't want to get too close to my relatives up that way now do you?

Gainesville looks like a good location, and the hotel sounds like it can handle things nicely. A major change in the dates could be a problem, but we'll cross that bridge when it's announced. Wherever and whenever it is, we'll try our hardest to get there!

Hey, we're on wheels so the place sounds great to us. You are right Roy about the hospitality in our small Texas towns. Went to Gainsville once with my son to buy a Ranger Bass Boat. So when do we pack? I'm getting anxious already. Well, guess we better get the Songwriters Festival over first. November 13 - 23rd if anyone is interested in the Festival.
The Gathering is what we make it, no matter where it's held. You know Roy we could have had it on our patio like when Sam Anderson came if we had needed to.
Love you all.

And go back to Johnny's B-29 club!

Bill I have some sad news for you. Johnny's burned down many years ago...it's said that North Texas U went into shock. But you can go sit by the road where it once was.

As far as the location goes, I personally have no problem with it. Unless there is an airport I don't know about, one challenge is that DFW is over an hour away. That is said not to circumvent anything that has been mentioned previously, it is just a reality check. So be prepared. Mapquest says 1 hour 5 minutes. That is the only downside I see at this point.

http://www.mapquest.com/maps?1c=Gainesville&1s=TX&1y=US&1l=33.625801&1g=-97.133102&1v=CITY&2pn=dfw+airport&r=s#a/maps/l:::Gainesville:TX::US:33.625801:-97.133102:city:/l:Dallas-Fort+Worth+International+Airport+(DFW):1530+W+18th+St:Dallas:TX:75261:US:32.89085:-97.04118:address:/m::6:33.258322:-97.087569:0::/io:1:::::s:EN:M:/e

It was mentioned that this facility is of the same vintage of our previous nest... That is not an issue. Hotels being built today are of the Holiday Inn Express/LaQuinta/Hampton Inn variety where there are no meeting rooms or ballrooms, this is just a fact. Markets have changed over the years. On the other end of the spectrum, there are other hotels that are much more expensive with ballrooms and meeting rooms but with that comes many other things such as higher costs, inability to bring in food, etc. For instance, a short while ago, Janet and I stayed at at one of the hotels off of Alamo Plaza for $89.95/night. This was a great rate for this hotel and was a group rate for a teachers convention. I doubt seriously anyone could get that rate in San Antonio anywhere in the summer months. Oh, by the way, the breakfast buffet was $17.95/person, valet parking $25. As far as distance from the airport? I don't even know where the airport is in San Antonio.

Wherever we gather together to honor Mickey Newbury and his music and to just "get together" is fine by me.

It sure does, Lee. Are you going to fly your LearJet or your Piper Cub?

(It doesn't have any commercial flights from what I can tell.)
