    I have never been to this event, but I have been to the Hangar Hotel a bunch. It is one of my favorites. OK Rooms, fun "officers club", tasty breakfast place, watch planes from patio, best driving roads in Texas, and access to best restaurants in Fredericksburg.

    Been many times. Everyone meets up at the Hangar Hotel in Fredricksburg. It is on the property of the airport, a WW2 training base. The decor is WW2 aviation oriented. Everyone hangs at the hotel bar on Friday night. Its a good time by itself. All Saturday will consist of a couple of run groups doing a drive in the Hill Country with a joint lunch stop at some predetermined spot. It will be a great drive with great scenery. Saturday night will be a group dinner event at some nearby venue.
    Sunday morning everyone gets together for group pictures and then go their separate ways. Its this chapters most popular annual event and we get quite a few from San Antonio and Houston.
    Make an early reservation at the Cabernet Grill (its very close to the hotel) for Friday dinner. Its quite good and will be very busy because of so many club members going there. I say early so you dont cut too much into your time at the hotel bar get together.

    Have a full tank of gas on Saturday AM. You'll need it. It will be a full day of driving and it will not be at economy run speeds.
    You will see places in the Hill Country back country you did not know existed.

    Rifledriver’s description is spot on. There are only 6 rooms left in the hotel. Event registration will open in about a month. For FCA members.
