The March 28th meeting has been canceled. Our President, Allen Boyd, has been in discussions with Ben and Paul at L.H. Selman regarding the upcoming meeting. Today, L.H. Selman announced that neither they, nor artist David Graeber, could travel to the March 28th meeting because of the coronavirus crisis. Many of our members had already decided that they would not attend owing to the health risks involved in traveling and congregating. It is because we all care so much for each other that the decision was made. Many hotel chains and airlines are allowing cancellations without fees during the crisis.
Our annual meeting, with elections of officers, will now take place May 9th in Buda. We hope that everyone will be able to attend and look forward to seeing you then .
PLEASE BE SURE TO CANCEL ANY EXISTING TRAVEL OR HOTEL RESERVATIONS FOR THE CANCELLED MARCH 28TH MEETING ASAP. If your reservations were at the PCATX suggested Fairfield Inn and Suites they can be contacted at 1-817-295-9201.
Our next meeting will be held on May 9th, 2020 at Cabela’s Buda, TX Store 15570 IH 35, Buda, TX 78610, (512) 295-1100. At the moment there are no plans to announce an official hotel selection for everyone to stay. As the event gets closer we may be providing you with a few suggested hotels, but please feel free to make your own reservations at your earliest convenience. There are many hotels immediately surrounding Cabela’s.
We are fortunate to have as our guest artist for the meeting the famous Mr. Craig Deacon. He will be stopping by on his way from Scotland to the Wheaton Village Paperweight Fest (May 14-16 2020).
The doors to the meeting room normally open at 9:00AM for visiting with members and artists, viewing and purchasing the paperweights brought by the dealer and/ or artist. All paperweights will be available for viewing throughout the day.
The meeting begins promptly at 10:00AM. We will have various updates from PCATX committees. As our annual business meeting in March was canceled due to concerns about the coronavirus officers will be elected at this meeting instead. If you are a newcomer please do not be put off by the “business” portion of the meeting as it doesn’t take long and is usually entertaining! We will have a break for lunch at about noon. For this meeting please plan on bringing a sack lunch, purchasing a lunch at Cabelas or going out for lunch. In the afternoon we will have presentations by the artist and/or dealer plus door prizes drawings. A detailed Agenda will be posted here prior to the meeting if possible.
Our meetings usually end by 3:30 or so.
Friday night dinner will be at a local restaurant. We usually meet up in the hotel lobby about 5:30 and carpool to the restaurant, but you can just meet us there if you wish. More details will be posted here as soon as they are available. All interested parties are welcome and encouraged to join us.
