Central, Wheat State and Texoma Districts’ Summer Conference

chateauThe Central, Wheat State and Texoma Districts would like to invite you to attend their joint summer conference July 28-30, at the Chateau on the Lake in Branson, MO.  This is the third year we have held our conference in Branson.  We had great attendance last year and we are very excited to be back at this beautiful location overlooking the pristine Table Rock Lake.

Please join us Thursday evening for a relaxing picnic overlooking the lake.  The excellent technical program will begin Friday morning, and will include an opportunity to see new products and services from various vendors during the Table Top portion of the conference.   The conference will conclude with the banquet Friday evening.   The Allied Trades hospitality suite will be in The Lake Lugano room and will be open Thursday and Friday.

For planning purposes we would greatly appreciate your advance registration.  Please use the enclosed form to let us know which functions you and/or spouse/guests will be attending.   Advance conference registration should be made by June 30 to take advantage of the reduced prices.   Since we have to guarantee a certain number of attendees for the dinners and golf in advance, there will not be any refunds made after July 8.

We have reserved a block of rooms at The Chateau on the Lake.  The Chateau is located at 415 N. State Hwy 265, Branson, MO, 65616.  The room rate of $154.00, plus tax and resort fee, applies for single or double occupancy.  Please reserve your rooms before July 6, after that date availability and rates are not guaranteed.  These rooms do go fast, so book early and you won’t be disappointed!   You may call 1-888-333-5253 and mention the IAOM group to get the reduced rate, or you may use this link to reserve your rooms online.BuffaloRidge-Branson

There is a golf tournament scheduled for Saturday morning at the Buffalo Ridge Golf Course.  Play will begin at 7:30 a.m., and we have reserved tee times for 24 golfers.  Awards will be presented at the course once everyone has finished.  Matt Fanshier with Great Western Mfg. has agreed to handle the arrangements for the tournament.  If you would like to be in a special foursome, or make a donation for prizes or sponsorship please contact Matt.  His phone number is 913-682-2291, or you may e-mail him at  If you do want to golf the cost is $110/person (advance registration), includes green fees & golf cart.

After the conference feel free to take advantage of the many entertainment options available in and around Branson.  There are many live shows with tickets still available.  Of course there is also Silver Dollar City, the Titanic, and many shopping opportunities for those who need some retail therapy!   Speaking of therapy… the Chateau on the Lake has a wonderful spa you may want to take advantage of as well.  The Chateau also has its own marina if you would like to rent a boat, wave runner, canoe, etc.
