Optional Event: Friday, May 15, 2020
Dallas Cowboy's Training Facility & Headquarters
One of the big attractions in the Dallas area is the Dallas Cowboy's Training Facility and Headquarters in nearby Frisco. We'll start with a VIP Tour that includes The War Room, where the NFL Draft is held; the Star Walk which is a collection of the 10 most significant milestones in Dallas Cowboy's history along with a display of the evolution of the team's uniforms dating back to 1960; the Super Bowl Memorabilia Station which includes a display of all five Super Bowl trophies and Rings from the years 1971, 1977, 1992, 1993, and 1995; and more. We've reserved the football field for a session of what is called "Kick, Punt & Pass" for all tour attendees. This is a unique opportunity to demonstrate your football skills on the field with your fellow members. Kick field goals, throw touchdown passes, and when all else fails, punt! As always, transportation and lunch is included in the Tour cost. Please remember to select this optional Tour Friday morning, May 15th, when you register for the conference.
Sunday Evening, May 17, 2020
Pinstack Event Facility
When the Cocktail Reception in the Exhibit Hall ends on Sunday night, we’ll take a short ride to Pinstack and continue the Reception. Pinstack is an Adult version of Dave & Busters and we’ve reserved a private banquet area that includes its own seating, bowling lanes, and access to rock climbing, bumber cars and laser tag. We’ll have prizes for winning competitors in every category. Located only five minutes from our hotel, we’ll have our Motor Coaches provide shuttle service for those who may want to retire early.
This Sunday night event is included in your registration fee and only registered attendees may attend. We do ask that you confirm your attendance for this event when you register for the conference. Thank you!
If you would like more details, contact John Margaritis at email@example.com.
Spouse Access to Cocktail Receptions, Luncheons, and the Sunday Night Dinner
A spouse who is involved in the member’s company, or may attend any session, or may be present at the member’s exhibit booth, must register as a full paying attendee, not at the spouse rate.
A spouse who is not involved in the member’s company but is the spouse of a full paying attendee, may register at the reduced spouse rate.
The reduced spouse rate includes attending any or all Cocktail Receptions, Luncheons, and the Sunday night event.
If you want to register someone at the reduced spouse rate and that person qualifies as described above, please contact the Administrator and he manually will enter that registration.
