Special Events for Out-of-Towners

Because you are having to travel, we wanted to invite you to:

  • Brunch - On Saturday morning (October 8) at our home from 9:00 - 11:00.  Our address is 4411 Cascades Shoreline Dr., Tyler, TX 75709  

  • Golf - Golf at the Cascades Golf Club will be available with tee times between 11:15 and 12:15.  We will need advance reservations for this so that we can reserve enough tee times.  


Because our kids and grandkids will all be staying at our house, we won't be able to accommodate you with a bed.  However, I have blocked some hotel rooms for Friday and Saturday nights (October 7 and 8) at the Holiday Inn Express South.

Holiday Inn Express South - $99/night. This is a group block (under "Dr. Coker's Birthday Party" or "with Splash") so most people will be staying here.  Breakfast and WiFi are included in the cost. Call (903) 566-0600 to book your room or click on this link which already has our Group code filled in. The block expires on Monday, October 3rd if rooms are still available.  Best to reserve your room as soon as possible. Hotel address: 2421 E. S.E. Loop 323   Tyler,  Texas  75701. This hotel is about 6 miles from the Cascades and is a 15-20 minute drive.

You can fly directly into Tyler Pounds Field (TYR) via DFW on American Airlines.

Southwest flies into Dallas Love Field so if you fly SW, you will need to rent a car.

You can also fly into Dallas or Shreveport and rent a car.

We are about a 2-hour drive from Dallas, a 90-minute drive from Shreveport, and a 4-hour drive from Houston or Austin.


Would love to hear whether or not you plan to attend as soon as possible. :)  You can email me at melindac@tyler.net or send me a message on the Contact Form.
