The Local Arrangements Committee is very excited about the offerings at this year’s annual meeting. Attendees will have numerous activities to choose from. These will range from a plethora of programs and quality time with vendors to experiencing the delights that Fort Worth has to offer.

Other delights such as fabulous food, ice cream, a carousel, and a great gift shop will also be available.

SWALL 2002 IN FORT WORTH, TEXAS – THE CITY WHERE THE WILD WEST BEGINS

Fort Worth, also known as "Cowtown," offers an intriguing mixture of western heritage, culture, and shopping. For those interested in western heritage and shopping, the Fort Worth Stockyards is the place to visit. Filled with shops, galleries, and cowboy history, the Fort Worth Stockyards is a worthwhile experience. For those who love country music, the Fort Worth Stockyards is also the locale of Billy Bob’s Texas, the world’s largest honky-tonk.

Fort Worth is also famous for its exceptional museums and cultural attractions. Visitors to the museum district can choose among quality museums that cover a wide range of artistic periods and interests. The Nancy Lee and Perry R. Bass Performance Hall is also a must-see. This beautiful establishment hosts performances from many different venues, including concerts, opera, and ballet. Check the SWALL Meeting web page for more information about these attractions and their schedules.

Finally, Fort Worth is a great place for shopping. Numerous shops and boutiques are located within easy walking distance from the Radisson Plaza Hotel in the Sundance Square district. The annual meeting will also coincide this year with the annual Main Street Fort Worth Arts Festival. This festival, located in downtown Fort Worth, will offer shoppers nine blocks of food, crafts, arts, and live entertainment.

So please, come one, come all, and see what this year’s SWALL annual meeting has to offer. With great programs, events, and attractions, SWALL attendees will have a wild experience to remember.
