Southwest Conference Winter Gathering
(A sanctioned Blue Knights Event)
The annual winter gathering for the Southwest Conference will take place January 24-26, 2014 in Palm Springs California. We are changing venues this year, which has the added bonus of a less expensive room rate than the previous location. This is your chance to see old friends and make new ones. There is no agenda for this event. We will sit around, tell lies, and enjoy the warmth of each other’s company.
There will be three scheduled meals (two dinners, one breakfast) at locations and times that will be announced when you arrive. There is a Carrows Restaurant on the property, as well as a steak house (currently closed, but management says it should be open by early January), plus other local eateries. And of course, there is plentiful shopping throughout the downtown area.
The hotel has blocked out 30 rooms for our use. They will hold these rooms for us until January 1st, at which point they will release them. Please call as soon as you can, tell them you are with the Blue Knights, and book your room. Rates may change after January 1st.
