Our annual gathering will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada from Thursday, October 15 through Saturday, October 17, 2020. This year we convene at a luxury resort property, the Green Valley Ranch Resort, located in Henderson, Nevada just south and east of the famous Las Vegas strip. Our chosen property has beautiful grounds, a spa, shopping a short walk from the hotel, all of which offer our members and their spouses a place to vacation as well as learn. In addition to ground and safety training, what's new from our sponsors and intriguing keynote speakers, you will have ample time and opportunity to explore our surroundings. You can sightsee, hike the Red Rock Canyon, hit the spa or the pool, see a show, helicopter to the Grand Canyon, or possibly find a slot machine somewhere!
We anticipate an increased number of LOBO members and guests in attendance in 2020. October is a great month to be in southern Nevada. The temperatures are pleasantly warm, the winds lighten up, and the evening skies glow! Hotel rooms get scarce and prices rise because this is high season for visitors and conferences. We negotiated a special rate at the Green Valley Ranch of $190 per night for the Landing. You must call the hotel directly at (866)782-9487 to reserve a room at this rate. Make sure to mention Lancair Owners and Builders Organization and use the code GCILOBO. You can also reserve your rooms online by clicking HERE. I recommend you do this now to make sure you have a room for the event. Hotels in the area sell out regularly in October.
The Henderson Executive Airport has agreed to host our group. It is one of three general aviation airports in the Las Vegas area and the most convenient to the downtown and strip areas. As it gets closer, we will have more details on parking and airport based events.
Now that we have chosen the time and place, we are busy planning sessions that will equip our members with the tools necessary for safely flying and maintaining our high performance fleet of aircraft. We are actively seeking input from our members for topics and speakers that will provide us with the best and most timely information. If you have suggestions please contact me at s.gainza [at] lancairowners.com. Your board hopes to ensure you have the very best quality and quantity of program as well as fun!
Registration will begin shortly once we finalize the meeting details and costs. Our registration fees cover the cost of having the meeting. Please note also that the meeting sponsors enable us to offset some of those costs. Your board works on an voluntary basis to provide you with a memorable and useful experience. We will do our best to make sure that the value of the Landing meets and exceeds your expectations. Mark your calendars now and plan to join us in October 2020 in Las Vegas!!
