Come to Santa Fe, New Mexico
Next May, the 190SL Group will convene for our annual
meeting in Santa Fe, New Mexico starting in the evening
of May 19th. We will be housed at the La Posada de Santa
Fe. The original building was built in 1882 for the Staub family and there's a possibility that Julia is
still around. You're welcome to get rooms in the main
building or in the casitas on the grounds.
Santa Fe has been a capitol city since 1610 and New
Mexico was first invaded by Europeans in 1539. It has a
rich and brutal history of settlement and conquest. The
attractions include numerous museums trying to explain
and demonstrate this history. There's even Civil War
history with the Battle of Glorieta Pass. Its way
overblown description is the "Gettysburg of the West".
More recently, Santa Fe is associated with the
development of nuclear weaponry from late WWII to the
present. The Pecos National Historic Park incorporates
the battlefield site and ancestral ruins we'll visit.
Los Alamos (the heart of the Manhattan Project in New
Mexico) is an option for the ATB.
Santa Fe became an arts center early in the 1900s.
Photography, painting, traditional and performance arts
have been big. The museums and galleries representing
these arts are numerous. The Georgia O'Keefe Museum
represents her work. Tours of her Ghost Ranch property
and area are available and take the better part of a day
to visit. With lots of advance planning, you'll be able
to make reservations for tours. Think ATB, although some
tours are only available during the Convention.
There are breweries and restaurants, of course. We will
try to patronize a few
of them while we are in Santa Fe.
Your job is to make a housing reservation as soon as
possible. A link will be provided on the website soon. We have a short
turn-around after the Waynesville convention and our
rooms will be let go fairly early.
