@GetSpatial. Thanks for the edit, it was helpful as it brought together the suggestions of blah238 that perhaps I didn't fully grasp. I appreciate both your efforts.

@blah238 For the FeatureClassToFeatureClass tool to work, there must already exist the destination FeatureClass, for that reason I don't think removing the CreateFeatureClass step is possible in this case. The TableToTable conversion, though, is unnecessary and can be removed (has #EDIT).

I appreciated your general suggestions on coding practices, I am new to programming in general and your advice was helpful. I get a feeling I wasn't using the getOutput method correctly as you pointed out, but now things are flowing well. Thanks

@blah238 Thanks for cutting through to my core problem... Using your suggestions I now have a solution that uses the CreateFeatureclass then FeatureClassToFeatureClass tools after the MakeXYEventLayer step.
