Sunday, June 30th
Hello Future Delegate!
The 19th International Sons of the Desert Convention will kick off its pre-convention activities exactly one year from today with the “Habeas Corpus Tour!”
This never-before tribute tour will pay homage to our unsung heroes who worked with the Boys or at Hal Roach Studios (some vintage Hollywood legends will be visited as well).
On Monday morning, June 30th, we will board a coach bus at the host hotel (Loews Hollywood Hotel) in the heart of Hollywood, and visit the graves of some of the greats of the Laurel and Hardy world: Edgar Kennedy, Mae Busch, Walter Long and Charles Middleton, to name but a few!
Details are being worked out with selected cemeteries. Exact time, cost and locations are TBA. At this point, the lunch stop (on your own) will be at the world-famous Farmer’s Market in Hollywood!
More to come.
B.S. If you have not made your room reservations, it would be wise to do so ASAP. Rooms are going fast!
All convention events still are in the planning stages and some contracts have not be finalized, thus the order of events may be changed or moved to another day or omitted. At this point, I am 90 percent sure these events will come off as planned.
