Before we know it, Fall will be here and with it comes the great weather in the Florida Panhandle - in particular, the Destin area.  We are hoping to have another Roundup there this year, so please mark your calendars for Thursday-Saturday, 10-12 October 2019.  Those who were able to make it to Destin last fall made many lasting memories, as well as new friends and discovered new places to  dine and to visit, thanks to Pat Pierce's vast knowledge of the area as our HHS resident "native" and to  Bill Coffeen as one whose family has left a lasting legacy in the area - Lake Coffeen!. It’s still early, but we are looking into a place for a meet and greet for those planning to arrive Thursday evening and for restaurants for dinner on Friday/Saturday night.  We have someone working on local lodging recommendations and in particular, the Hampton Inn, Destin for a group rate there. We are also looking into other hotels in the area to recommend as well as events taking place that weekend.  We will provide that information once we have it, which we expect to be within the next week or so. 

If you are interested in joining us, have any questions or have any suggestions, please feel free to contact one of us.  We would also appreciate your letting us know as early possible so we may determine the group size for both the hotel and restaurants. 

Thanks, we look forward to hearing back from you and seeing you in Destin!
