The business session will be on Tuesday, Jan. 14 where delegates from all 50 states and Puerto Rico will consider and vote on Farm Bureau’s public policy for 2014.
If you’re not participating in the business session, you will have your pick of tours provided by the Texas Farm Bureau, bus tour to the LBJ Ranch & Visitor Center and historic Fredericksburg, Hop-on-Hop-off Tour of San Antonio highlights or take walking tours of the Alamo, Tower of Americas, Institute of Texas Cultures or shop in LaVillita or Market Square all in nearby proximity of the Hyatt Regency.
Two group dinners have been planned with unique venues and tours. On our first night in San Antonio, the group will take a short one block walk down Crocket Street to the County Line Barbeque for a Texas barbeque dinner overlooking the Riverwalk.
After dinner, we will board river boats for a narrated tour of downtown San Antonio and the Riverwalk before arriving back at the Hyatt Regency hotel.
At the conclusion of the convention on Tuesday evening, the group will walk across the street to the famous Buckhorn Saloon and Texas Ranger Museum for an evening tour and Tex-Mex dinner.
On Wednesday, a group tour and lunch hosted by the Texas Farm Bureau will also be provided as part of the group package price. We will visit a peanut processing plant, see cactus ropes made, tour the famous Alamo Hat Company, as well as visit an exotic wildlife ranch. View TN Farm Bureau San Antonio brochure.
