Save the date for the 2016 District 5890 Conference! Galveston Island has SUN, FUN and sea galore, but that’s just for starters.  Escape with your fellow Rotarians to the perfect year-round destination, a great resort, and an outstanding ROTARY District 5890 Conference at The San Luis Hotel, Spa and Conference Center, April 28-30, in Galveston.  A Thursday night welcome barbecue at the San Luis, Friday and Saturday’s breakfasts, Friday’s lunch, and the Governor’s Banquet are all included in the very reasonable registration fee – register now by clicking the Registration Form link.  Click for Hotel Block Registration Form.
 
Our 2016 Conference Committee is busy putting together a fun and information-filled adventure for us all to enjoy.  The festivities will begin with a Barbecue Dinner at the San Luis on Thursday night to welcome all of the Conference attendees.  The Plenary Sessions will begin on Friday morning after breakfast, and will conclude shortly after lunch, giving everyone the rest of Friday evening to enjoy the sights of the island.  The grand finale Governor’s Banquet will be held on Saturday evening at the majestic Galveston Island Convention Center, just a city block away, with transportation provided by buses from the San Luis Hotel. For later evening fun and festivities on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, the fourth floor of the San Luis hotel has been reserved exclusively for our Hospitality Rooms.  There will be five suites, hosted by two Rotary clubs each, each with their own individual theme.  You will definitely want to visit them all, and enjoy their food, beverages and hospitality.  The room block that we had reserved at the San Luis is now FULL, but there are still rooms available in our Conference Block at the nearby Hilton Galveston Island Resort and the Holiday Inn Resort on the Beach.  Please use the links available, or call the numbers provided, in order to make your reservations at one of these hotels before they sell out as well.  The advantage to these hotels is that the rates are $10.00 - $20.00/night less expensive.
 
Of course, no District Conference would be complete without golf and tennis tournaments.  The golf tournament will be held at the beautiful Moody Gardens Golf Course on Thursday morning, April 28th, under the direction of PDG Lisa Faith Massey, a master of fun and frolic on the course.  The tennis tournament will be held Friday or Saturday afternoon, and will be chaired by big-time tennis guy, Lindsey Kroll. Finally, we are required by Rotary International to have an adequate amount of up-to-date information about Rotary and our fantastic district and its clubs, which will be shared with all present at our Plenary Sessions on Friday and Saturday mornings. 
 
So, prepare for another Island Adventure with several hundred of your closest friends – your fellow Rotarians.  We look forward to seeing you in Galveston.
