Please join the Rio Grande Norte Chapter 99s for a  Red or  Green ?  weekend in Santa Fe.


Condensed Schedule of Events

Plan to arrive on Thursday, October 15th, to enjoy the –

Friday Tour: Santa Fe Studios, Bonanza Creek Ranch and Madrid. Our bus will depart from the Drury Plaza Hotel at approximately 9:00 AM traveling southward to the sound stages of Santa Fe Studios, the sets of the Bonanza Creek Movie Ranch and the historic mining town of Madrid. Lunch on your own in Madrid before our bus returns to the hotel at approximately 3:00 PM. There are but a few stairs and the longest leg time on the bus should be no more than 35 minutes on the return. Space is limited. Sign up early!

Downtown Walking Tour: This tour is offered at three different times to accommodate any schedule. We will need two hours to locate the finest shopping, the most renowned galleries, our best downtown museums, and of course, the tastiest margarita in town. Registration and payment can be made upon arrival in Santa Fe.

Friday Evening Reception : Just two blocks from the hotel on famed Canyon Road, Manitou Galleries is the venue for our reception, featuring a sculpture garden and some of the finest western art found anywhere. Included will be wine and regional hors d’oeuvres along with entertainment.

Saturday Morning Guest Event: Jet Warbird Ground School with owner/pilot Larry Salganek. Need we say more? Check out Jet Warbird Training Center at
and plan to be amazed by Larry’s aircraft and this specially prepared ground school for our guests. This will take place at Santa Fe Airport and space is limited. Sign up early to reserve your space.

Saturday Banquet Buffet : The Santa Fe based combo, Half Broke Horses, will provide entertainment for no-host cocktails at our closing function. Perhaps, just perhaps, there will be a red or green chili theme. Wear red and/or green attire of any style , and enjoy the evening catching up with friends, swapping stories of time spent in the desert Southwest and dreaming of your next visit to Santa Fe.

Lodging and meetings will be at the brand new Drury Plaza Hotel, in downtown Santa Fe just two blocks from the famed Plaza. The site is adjacent to St. Francis Cathedral, built by Archbishop Jean Baptiste Lamy between 1869 and 1886. In the 1910s, a portion of the property was a dormitory for the Sisters of Charity. The primary facade is from the 1950s St. Vincent’s Hospital, designed by renowned architect John Gaw Meem, and is an excellent example of late Territorial Revival style. NOTE: Rates are good for Oct 14-20.
