    Durango-Silverton Railroad

    Join physician-pilots and their families in this amazing destination.  Put April 6-9, 2017, on your calendar and save the dates.  

      The downtown is a treasure of unique shops, galleries, restaurants and the friendliest people in the USA -- ready to make the weekend a special memory.  Durango, Colorado downtown is a Nationally Registered Historic District.  It is home to boutique hotels, award-winning restaurants and great shopping.  You will step out the hotel door into history.

      Come early for a pre-meeting tour to Mesa Verde or to try your best fly-fishing rod in the cold mountain streams.

      In addition, Durango offers the great outdoors experiences whether it be hiking, biking, rafting, or simply taking in the incredible scenery.

      Southwest and Western Chapters invite YOU to join us for this special weekend! See you there.  MORE INFORMATION TO COME!
