Tour the Hilton DFW Lakes with Tom

RHS '66 40th Reunion Location
October 13-14, 2006
  Here is the complete tour - drive up, Friday night, golf, Saturday night & plan to stay there with those who will be there.  
  Front entrance to the Hilton DFW Lakes as you drive up near Grapevine Mall on Hwy 26 a few miles north of DFW near the Pro Bass Shop. We have it all near our reunion site & headquarters hotel.
  What you see as you drive up to valet park & unload your luggage. Self parking is also an option & there is plenty of room a short walking distance. The head Bellman, Oscar is great. He knows all the best restaurants in the area, particularly the local ones in downtown Grapevine.
  Lobby area has been completely redone & that is not a mud wrestling pit, but where special tile & wood are being set in the final touches of the lobby renovation.
  Saturday night Celebration & buffet dinner - The view is 1 of 4 ballrooms that join together for a huge area to give us plenty of room for dinner, easy circulation to visit, a dance space & room for our video running in 4 corners and our guest musicians.
If you are staying at the Hilton or have a friend there ( that's me ), come enjoy the great health club area with huge indoor pool and outdoor pool. There is a well equipped exercise room, racquet ball courts, indoor & outdoor tennis courts.
  Here are different vantage points from the outdoor area where our Friday night social will be. A beautiful setting where we will have tables set up - short ones for standing and enjoying appetizers and a beverage of your choice and long ones with chairs for sitting, visiting & catching up with classmates you might have seen the day before in Richland Hills or likely countless others that you might not have seen for 10 - 40 years. We have an adjoining huge area which are in door tennis courts that will be a great back up if we have bad weather. The back-up will provide the same great space, without the sky & outdoor beauty.  
  Stay at the Hilton whether local or out of town & come have as much fun as the committee has been having.

Even if you live in the area, treat your self Friday or Saturday night to mini vacation. That way you don't have to drive home Friday or Saturday night and you can have that much more time to visit with all us out of towners who will be at the Hilton .
