Pima museum 1
March is a beautiful month in Tucson, Arizona!  Join us for a chance to visit the Pima Air and Space Museum, with over 350 historical aircrafts, from a Wright Flyer to a 787 Dreamliner.  We are talking 80 acres of aircraft, and a tram tour of the grounds if you don’t want to walk it!  Boneyard tours are also available, but reservations must be made at least 10 days in advance, through the museum.

The Titan Missile Museum, located 25 miles south of Tucson, is another point of interest, which allows you to visit one of only 2 ICBM sites in the world that have been preserved for the benefit of the public. The underground missile complex, the launch control center and a simulated missile launch are included in the tour.

For those who prefer nature over technology, the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, a hike up Sabino Canyon, or a drive up Mt. Lemmon might be just what your heart desires.  Tucson is a place of historic sights, restaurants, art galleries, and a university, all not too far from our hotel.
 
Accommodations will be at “The Lodge on the Desert,” a boutique hotel which is an Arizona Landmark, updated but with a historic vibe.  It is a charming, hacienda style place, and with a booking, we will have a complimentary breakfast (2 per room) each morning, a free drink on arrival, and complimentary wi-fi.

The hotel sent us a link which members can use to book their own rooms as part of the DAF group. The link is: www.LodgeOnTheDesert.com and guests need to open the link, click on “Book Now” in the upper right hand corner.  Then, under the number of guests, click “special codes” and type DELAMO into the group codes box.  The other option is to call the hotel at 877-498-6776 and mention the group booking code “DELAMO”. They are holding 10 rooms for us.

One other fun option for those interested will be a trip to “The Gaslight Theater.”  This is a place where we “boo” the bad guys and "cheer" the good guys in an old fashioned saloon style theater.  More info to come on this as well. 

Save the date, and we hope to see you in Tucson!
