MCAA's Midyear Meeting Gets Spicy!


The Mason Contractors Association of America's (MCAA) Midyear Meeting will heat up in San Antonio, September 23-25.

Meeting participants will enjoy their stay in San Antonio ? the eighth largest U.S. city ? with its blend of historical landmarks and cosmopolitan city life. San Antonio captures the spirit of Texas and is home of The Alamo, known as the "Shrine of Texas Liberty" for being the historical rallying point of the Texas Revolution against Mexico. Other historical points of interest include La Villita (one of the original settlements), the San Fernando Cathedral and Market Square (the largest Mexican marketplace outside of Mexico).

San Antonio is a golfer's dream, offering upscale, public courses, like the La Cantera Golf Club pictured here.

Enjoy a stroll at Market Square, the largest Mexican marketplace outside of Mexico.

Attendees of MCAA's 2004 Midyear Meeting will also delight in their accommodations at The Westin Riverwalk Hotel. Named to Cond? Nast Traveler's 2003 Gold List and rated "4 Diamonds" by AAA Publishing, the Westin Riverwalk has an intimate feel, Texas-sized accommodations and amenities, and offers exquisite Spanish colonial artwork to further surround you in the essence of Texas. The hotel also offers scenic views and lush landscaping, located on the tranquil and trendy Riverwalk, a tree-lined pedestrian walkway of hidden gardens, specialty boutiques, European-style sidewalk caf?s, and nightclubs.

The Paseo del Rio ? better known as the Riverwalk ? winds through the San Antonio business district and offers something for everyone.

In 1836, 189 Texans held the Alamo against some 4,000 Mexican troops for 13 days.

The Texas Masonry Council's Skills Challenge and Fastest Trowel will be held at the San Antonio Convention Center during the MCAA's Midyear Meeting.

During the three-day event, participants will also get a chance to participate in a golf tournament at the Pecan Valley Golf Club, skeet shooting at the San Antonio Gun Club, and an evening at the Buckhorn Saloon & Museum. The final evening will be dedicated to the Texas Masonry Council's Golden Trowel Awards reception and dinner.
