Eyeball 2016, hosted by Charles Rader (AC0HF), was held in Branson, MO at the Stone Castle Hotel the weekend of August 10-14.  The Eyeball Fee was $65.00 and Raffle Tickets were $4.00 each.

The City of Branson (population 10,520; with millions of visitors annually and growing) is located in SW Missouri, 35 miles south of Springfield within the heart of the Ozark Hills.  Most of the city is in Taney County, but a small western portion of the city extends into Stone County.  Branson serves as the job, service, and shopping center for a two-county area with 80,000 year-round residents.  Branson is surrounded by three prize winning fishing lakes – Lake Taneycomo, Table Rock Lake, and Bull Shoals Lake.

Visit Charles' website for more details.

The city has an incorporated boundary of over 21 square miles.  It has become the focus of international attention as both a major development area and an entertainment and tourism destination.  The reasons are numerous and range from the scenic natural beauty to the variety of live entertainment options and family oriented entertainment offerings.

The Branson Airport, located less than 10 miles south of the city, has a 7,140-foot runway to accommodate all types of commercial aircraft, making Branson even more accessible.  Direct commercial air service is available to many destinations through Frontier Airlines and Southwest Airlines.

The Springfield / Branson National Airport (SGF) is located 42 miles to the north and serves all of southwest Missouri with daily flights connecting to eight international airports via six airlines.  The M. Graham Clark Downtown Airport, a general aviation airport with a 3,739-foot runway, is located one mile south of Branson.

Lodging & Restaurants - More than 20,000 rooms are available in Branson motels, hotels, resorts, bed and breakfast inns, and condominiums.  Visitors have an endless variety of restaurants and food establishments from which to choose.  There are over 125 restaurants with over 30,000 seats.

The Eyeball will be hosted at the Stone Castle Hotel and Convention Center.  They gave very reasonable pricing and have a spot back behind the hotel that we can use for the Mobile Shootout.  (See map on Charles' website.)

Regular rooms at the Stone Castle hotel will be $69.00 and the Jacuzzi Themed Rooms will be $99.00.  These rates will extend from August 7th to August 17th, 2016 (depending on availability so book early).  Complementary Hot breakfast bar is available every day.

There are many things to do as a family in Branson.  Within walking distance of the Stone Castle Hotel, or a very short drive, are several mini-golf courses, wineries, shopping centers, and an IMAX.  See the links on Charles' website) to some very informative websites listing many more attractions and activities available to visitors to Branson.
