We are pleased to invite you to the 2018 Prime Timers Labor Day Weekend. The five day event held at the Southwest's premier gay resort – the Habana Inn in Oklahoma City – begins Wednesday afternoon August 29, and continues through noon Monday, September 3, 2018.

NOTE: **The Habana will begin taking reservations Monday, March 5th at 8:00 a.m. CST, Call 1-405-528-2221 or 1-800-988-2221 toll-free. There are 3 lines on the area code 405 number, and only 1 on the toll free. Increase your chances of getting through by calling the area code 405 number, instead of the 800 number. Tell them you are with Prime Timers, no code needed. If you want to reserve more than one room, you will need the name of the person who will occupy that room.

PLEASE NOTE: Your hotel accommodations are not included in the registration fee for the event. You can check out the Habana Inn's website The Habana tries to accommodate your choice of room, but as with any hotel, it does not guarantee your choice. COPT has no control over hotel registration or room selection. If you need a first floor room, please make that your priority when you call. If you have a special need related to your hotel room, you need to let your hotel know. We do not assign hotel rooms.

copt2018Every year, 175 Prime Timers and their friends from around the US and Canada converge on the Habana Inn for a weekend of fun in the sun. The Habana features two swimming pools, three bars, a restaurant and an adult gift shop, plus shows on Thursday and Sunday nights. It has free wireless internet. It is located in the heart of Oklahoma City's gay bar district. The weekend begins Wednesdays afternoon early registration. The Labor Day Gathering is an opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones.

Most attendees find their own diversions, but if you want to venture out, Oklahoma City offers lots of things to do. We have plenty of museums, entertainment and dining districts, and the Oklahoma City National Memorial. If antiques are your thing, there are hundreds of stores available for your shopping pleasure. The Habana Inn is at the heart of the gay entertainment district, which features even more bars. As always, we will have local tours, and we hope to have a Bridge Tournament.

The schedule for the weekend: Scheduled events include a Happy Hour every day (Thursday through Sunday), a Welcome Party on Thursday, dinners with entertainment on Saturday, poolside continental breakfast five days (Thursday through Monday), a poolside box lunch on Friday and Saturday, Friday BBQ dinner and a brunch on Sunday and Monday.

Heavy rain and cooler temperatures did not dampen the spirits of the attendees at the Carolinas PRIME Regional Event, held in North Myrtle Beach, SC at the Beach Cove Resort, October 25-28. Over 110 Prime Timers came from Denmark, Chicago, Boston, San Antonio, Dallas, Atlanta, Richmond, Norfolk, Knoxville, Charleston {WV}, several Florida chapters, Nevada, five North Carolina chapters, and, of course, the host state of South Carolina 's Charleston, Myrtle Beach and Columbia chapters. In addition there were several guys who are not affiliated with a chapter AND, for a first at PRIME, there were four members of the Independent Chapter in attendance.

Acquaintances and friendships were made on Thursday and Friday nights in the hospitality suite. Smaller groups went to dinner on Friday night at a couple of great local restaurants. The program part of the meeting was on Saturday morning with four excellent speakers: Warren Redman-Gress, Retired Executive Director of Alliance for Full Acceptance, Charleston, SC; Johanna Hayes, CEO, Careteam Plus, Inc., Conway, SC; Dr. Richard Wynn, Ballantyne Family Medicine, Charlotte, NC; and Kendra R. Johnson, Executive Director of Equality, NC, Raleigh, NC. At 2:00 PM, one breakout session was led by the Board of PTWW, meeting with various chapter officers to discuss items like chapter growth, financial security, relevance, etc. Dr. Wynn led the second 2:00 PM breakout session using the Q&A format, discussing medical topics.

Saturday night, PRIME guys enjoyed a social time followed by a delicious banquet. The after-dinner entertainer was Michael Bairefoot, a most awarded comedy-magician who dazzled the audience with magic tricks. Then, the banquet event closed with a drawing for 21 fantastic door prizes provided by the NC and SC PRIME Board members and their chapters. After the banquet, some guys dressed for the 8:30 PM Halloween Party. The party was in another large, conference center room that had been decorated by the Columbia Chapter guys using a Halloween theme. The highlight of the Halloween Party was the costume contest with winners representing sailors, an Egyptian, and a shark.

This event was the second Carolinas PRIME event with the first being held in October 2016, also at the Beach Cove Resort in North Myrtle Beach, SC. That event was so well received that the Carolinas PRIME Board planned the second event which experienced a 52% growth in attendance. The Carolinas PRIME Board is made up of representatives from five of the six Prime Timers Chapters in North Carolina and South Carolina. Regional events are helpful to Prime Timer chapters and it is great when members and chapter leaders come to the regional and worldwide events. Special thanks go to the members of the Carolinas PRIME Board, and their chapter helpers, for hosting this second, fabulous regional event.
