Post date: Oct 25, 2011 1:18:58 PM

Jai Jinendra,

Please tell your children, family, and friends about the South Fall Retreat at Six Flags Fiesta Texas, in San Antonio, Texas! Here's some info:

We'll all get together in San Antonio Friday night at the Hyatt Northwest, and then head out early Saturday morning to Six Flags in San Antonio! Additionally, we'll spend the entire day riding miles of steel, eating sugar covered and perhaps fried junk food, and then head over to the San Antonio riverwalk to eat/hangout!

Tentative Schedule:

Friday, Nov 11: Arrive in San Antonio after 9 PM. Eat some snacks/ice breakers!

Saturday, Nov 12: Leave from the Hyatt at 9:00 AM sharp, go to Six Flags! We'll spend the entire day at the park, evening with a final dinner at the riverwalk, and head back to the hotel for a few sessions/games:)

Sunday, Nov 13: Depart hotel to go home

The price for the trip is $65 Considering how the original price of the ticket is $54.99 & staying at the Hyatt is $50 per night/per person, you definitely won't get a better deal than this! Prices will go up to $70 on November 6th at midnight CST, so sign up ASAP.

Register quickly, because spots are limited!!
