~ Follow this link and read & comply with Park Rules (FYI: the sheet that TPWD sent me says that alcohol is not allowed at all).
~ Leave pets and realistic-looking weapons at home.
~ BYO drinking water and mosquito repellent
~ Help pay for the Pavillion ($150) by chipping in cash to either Thereyet or Cruize (overage to go directly to the Battleship Texas Foundation).
The schedule is subject to change, but currently looks like this:
~ 10:00 - Noon -- Panels & Presentations Panel
~ Noon - 1:00 -- BYO picnic lunch and socialize (there is a snack bar on site that sells boxed lunches)
~ 1:30 - 2:30 -- Invade the Battleship Texas (BTW - she is a WWI vintage STEAMship), or museum, or whatever.
~ 3:00 - 5:00 -- Ballroom Dance Workshops (Waltz for sure, East Coast Swing and Foxtrot very likely)
Entrance to the park and museum are free. The observation deck of the Monument and Battleship have fees. We have arranged to get a group rate of $6.00 (vs. $12) for the Battleship - to make this work, we will need to pool funds (cash) on the day of the event and have one person go in to buy at least 15 passes at one time.
We plan to update this description as details develop.
