After a long day of traveling or pre-ScienceWriters2016 meetings, San Antonio wants to help you rally, so Cowboy Up and join us for an evening of down-home fun. Guests will enjoy BBQ hors d'oeuvres, prickly pear margaritas and musical and trick roping entertainment to kick off the weekend of festivities and learning. Try your hand at trick roping, or simply network and enjoy the sounds of Jeffrey Charles, a rising country music star. Shuttles will transport guests to and from the Omni to the convention center. Guests will have the option of enjoying a river barge transport back to the hotel after the event between 9 and 10 p.m.
