Lone Star Conference Update
Nov 19, 2013
Scheduled for the first weekend of December; the 6th through the 8th, at
the DFW Airport Hotel in Irving, Texas.
There will not be any fee charged for attendance; it is free to all.
We will accept free will offerings or donations and will provide a donation box but do not feel obligated.
Please keep in mind that there are expenses incurred to put on a conference. In this case we, that is some of us individually as there is no church or organization sponsoring the conference, have to pay upfront (out of pocket) for the meeting room, projector and screen rental and some miscellaneous costs like name tags, etc., for a total of about $1,500.00.
Additionally, our speakers are not paid to speak so any financial help given directly to each of them individually would be greatly appreciated by them. Three of them are coming from out of state so they will incur travel and logging expenses in rout and hotel costs here for four nights
On another note: A breakfast buffet is available at the hotel for $4.00. Normal food items will be served including bacon and sausage. We have requested that turkey bacon and sausage be available for those of us that do not eat pork. I think they will accommodate us.
The conference hotel is near to the Fairfield Inn, the hotel some folks stayed at for last year’s conference at FCC. It is also near the Aspin Creek restaurant next door to the Fairfield.
