The seventh edition of Bronco Fest will be held April 23rd to 26th, 2009. As in past years, a major portion of the activities for the weekend will be attending the Cowtown Warbird Roundup (CWR) which is our annual fly-in and fund-raising event.
We are including many of the events from past years, along with a few new twists here and there, including a FAC Symposium. Discounts will be available for multi-day and early registrations. (Please note that the prices for some events have been lowered since the first announcement of BF VII/CWR was published... so if you've already registered, we will give you the better price!)
Some of the featured activities include a Lockheed Martin Plant Tour (Carswell AFB), Museum Tour, Cowtown Warbird Roundup pre-show VIP Access, Flight Suit Dinner, Cowtown Warbird Roundup w/ VIP Access, lunches, banquets, dinners, and more! Some of these events require pre-registration, so don't wait too long to register.
Hotel registrations will be handled directly with our Bronco Fest VII headquarters, the Radisson Hotel Fort Worth-Fossil Creek. A separate web site is being set up for direct registration (click here). Their special discount rate will be $109.00 per night single or double occupancy. Or you can call them directly at (817) 625-9911 and ask for the Bronco Fest Special.
The Friday night Flight Suit Dinner and the Saturday night Bronco Fest Banquet will both be held at the Radisson.
In addition to all this, we are pleased to announce our new corporate sponsor for CWR, Texas Aviation Services. All CWR activities and events will take place at their corporate location at Meacham Field on Main Street. Bronco Fest VII attendees will have special access to a VIP Pavilion in the Texas Aviation Services facility.
Please note that as is the case throughout the OV-10 Bronco Association, we welcome and wish to fully include EVERYONE who has any interest in the OV-10 or the Bronco Community... not just those who flew, worked on, served with, designed, or were otherwise associated with the plane.
We are anticipating 60 plus warbirds to fly in for the weekend for the Cowtown Warbird Roundup and many other activities and events related to it.
If you have questions, please contact Jim Hodgson.
We hope to see you there!
