SPRING FLYOUT – ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP AND BOARD MEETINGS
Branson, MO May 19-22, 2016
Known as the “Live Music Show Capital of the World,” Branson, MO, is truly a one-of-a-kind family vacation destination — and an incredible value — with more than 50 live performance theaters, three pristine lakes, 12 championship golf courses, an international award-winning theme park, dozens of attractions and museums, shopping galore, a full range of dining options, and a host of hotels, motels, resorts and meeting and conference facilities.
This year we will have a safety seminar at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday evening at KPLK as usual. On Friday, we will drive north a short distance for a guided tour of the National Tiger Sanctuary which is dedicated to providing an educational facility teaching about environmental conditions that are effecting the Earth’s ecosystems through creating a safe and protected environment in which all ages can enjoy the delight of discovery. They focus on big cats as examples of the beauty and diversity we need to preserve for the survival of our planet, and provide them with a safe, stress free, forever home. We have a special group rate of $20, and will pay individually.

The location has been moved to the Westover Field Airport located at 12380 Airport Blvd, Jackson, CA off of Hwy 49. The layout of the new location offers addition space for show cars, vendors and the public, and is ideally configured for this event. The show expects cars from throughout California and Nevada, and will feature vehicles in all categories from street rods to stock pre-1960, modified, foreign cars and more. Some trucks will also be on display.
Show car judging will be from 10-12 noon, and the award ceremony will be held at 2:00 PM. The event is open to the public from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
