-- The RFSA travelers are starting 2014 by going to Dallas January 21-22 for the Renaissance Tour starting with a visit to the Bush Presidential Library on the SMU campus that opened in May of 2013. That evening there will be a backstage tour at the Meyerson Symphony Center before a concert by the Dallas Wind Symphony directed by UT’s own Jerry Junkin. The next morning before heading back to Austin we will visit the Perot Museum with a chance to go behind the scenes.
-- The March 25-28 destination is South Texas. Battles, Bays and Branding Irons highlights include a visit to the UT Marine Science Center with an afternoon cruise on their research vessel the RV/Katy, a day at the King Ranch culminating with a barbecue dinner at the Cowboy Camphouse, and on the way back a tour of historic Gonzalez, site of the first battle of the Texas Revolution and home to the “Come and Take It” cannon. Reservation deadline is Feb 15, 2014.
