October 14 - 15, 2016 - Ft. Worth/ Burleson, Texas
Burleson Antique Lure Show

Hampton Inn and Suites
Ft. Worth/ Burleson
13251 Jake Ct.
Ft. Worth, 76028     Phone 817-295-2727

Friday October 14th=Room Trading with show at the Burleson Events Center (formerly named SPJST Hall) on Saturday on Sat. October 15th

The Hampton Inn has just been remodeled and now has a morning hot breakfast. The rooms are $95.00 and a Suite for $10.00 more. I believe the single King size bed rooms have a pull-out bed also and have walk in showers where the 2 queen size bed rooms have tubs, but check it out if that is important to you. The meeting room has not changed except in name only (Burleson Events Center), which was the SPJST Hall and is about 2 miles south on I-35, very easy to get to. Go under Hidden Creek Pkwy (which is the named exit where you will get off I-35) and the Center is about 200-300 yards down the access road on the right.

The auctioneer from the Temple show will be there to auction off anything from the public that shows up. I try not to auction off member materials unless it is estate lures for deceased member’s families.  Colby and I will send out flyers this summer but mark it on your calendar now!!! We will send a flyer to any out of region members. Free display tables will be up so please come show off!!!!  Lots of fantastic restaurants are here  in Burleson and I will try and make out a list of the best.

Show registration is $20.00 and tables are $20.00
