2014 Keeping Tradition Alive Honor Guard, Pipes & Drums Symposium
May 8-9, 2014

2014 Keeping Tradition Alive Symposium is May 8-9, 2014 in Lewisville, TX. Last year we were filled to capacity and we expect the same this year. The event will be the same format as last year. Thursday will be opening ceremonies followed by a full day of instruction. Friday will be instruction all day followed by the Old Town Concert at City Hall.

Immediately after KTA 2013 the City started construction on an outdoor plaza/performance area. Construction is on-going and we are optimistic that KTA 2014 will be the inaugural event for this wonderful venue. The new Plaza is directly across from City Hall and will add some very nice amenities to an already popular activity. We are planning on bringing back The Killdares and expanding the food service. Last year was a huge success so plans are under way to make sure this year is as successful as 2013.

The process of registration will be the same as years past. 2014 KTA Registration Form is found here. It is a PDF and should be downloaded, printed and mailed to address listed. EACH PARTICIPANT needs a form filled out and payment must be received to guarantee your spot. You can mail a check along with registration to the address listed on the form. If you wish to pay with a credit card you will need to contact me during normal business hours at 972-219-3590.

The Symposium is held at the Hilton Garden Inn KTA Reservations . You can call the Hilton directly at (972)459-4600 or visit them at Lewisville Hilton Garden Inn. Be sure to mention Keeping Tradition Alive to get our group discount.

We will provide airport shuttles from DFW and Love Field. I will need all flight information as soon as it is available. If we are providing transportation please make sure we know how many are in your party so we can make the proper arrangements.

Currently we are not having the "Spouses Day". Unfortunately funding this activity has been very challenging. We will continue to look for a method to support this activity and if we are able to fund it details will be posted here.

We are working hard to get all the resources in place to offer you the best event possible. We appreciate the faith and support that you give us each year by spending a few days in Lewisville and we look forward to seeing you in May.
