Frisco Folks: There are preliminary plans being put together to hold a Frisco get together at the Beaumont Hotel in Beaumont Kansas. The hotel is directly across the street from the Historic Beaumont Frisco water tower. the Hotel has been completely remodeled and very nice. We have been in contact with the owners and they are quite excited to hear of the news. The hotel has 4 suites and 7 guest rooms. The owners state the suites can sleep up to 6 adults. The hotel and resturaunt are quite famous in the flying community. There is an airstrip for small planes nearby. If you would like more info on the hotel go to there website www.hotelbeaumontks.com. The plans for this event are very preliminary but do include plans for a slide/video session and possibly a small swap session/modeling contest. We are looking for ideas and folks to give clinics. We are also hoping to get a Frisco Motor car and handcar to the event to give short rides on the remaining trackage in Beaumont. I can't say for sure if this will be a 1-2 or 3 day get together. The hotel will allows us full run of the hotel except for the resturaunt area when it is closed. They have also promised to give us better rates on the rooms if we are able to rent out the entire hotel. We are presently looking at the months of September and October, right now October 20th is looking good. If you are interested in coming or helping or have any ideas for this event please email me direct or post here. My email address is email@example.com I first heard of the idea of doing this nearly 20 years ago from a gentleman in Wichita. Tony Lalumia had a great idea then and I feel it is a great idea now. The spark was re-kindled this weekend as a group of us from Southeast Kansas stopped at the Hotel to eat Breakfast before going to a model RR. meet in Wichita. So lets hear from you guys and lets make this happen. Bob Wintle Parsons, Ks.
