UPDATE... National KSA Gathering in Guthrie

For anyone making the Guthrie trek this year, we leave on ( The reunion is March 30 – 31 and April 1, 2012 ) March 31st and return on April 4th. The degrees start on Friday, March 30 April 1st promptly at 0800, or for you Marines the little hand on 8, etc.

There are a lot of flights available getting to Oklahoma City about 3:30 PM, which should be your target time so you can get to the Scottish Rite Center in Guthrie in time to get checked in, register, and accompany us to the steak house for dinner.

I'll have room for two people in my car and I get into OKC at 5:30 PM. Now is the time to start booking plane fares. Also I need a list of names no later than February 28th so I can reserve rooms at the Center.

( I think the rooms in the INN may be gone by now. Last night I was told there were only 15 beds left )( You might e-mail Brother John Walker at the new e-mail address – innkeep@att.net )

Please send me a list of names of the members that will be coming and I will register them. If they want a packet please have them send in a Gathering reservation which is on our new homepage for the Knights of St Andrew. www.ksaguthrie.org Reunion is FREE but the packets are $25.00 – They contain a Note book / Pen / Special Challenge Coin / Gathering Lapel Pin. Plus other items and Oklahoma / Guthrie information.

The hotels are listed in our home page. Sleep Inn and Best Western are $80 and $ 74 / night. I understand the Holiday went up to $150.00/night.
