We are a couple of weeks away (Aug. 2nd) from our yearly trek to the “fire breathing” Dragon! Plans are to depart the Cracker Barrel in Murfreesboro, Hwy 231 @ Exit 81B at 8:45 SHARP so please have a FULL tank of gas, FULL tummies, and EMPTY bladder! PLEASE let David or Barbara know if you will be traveling with the group up to Robbinsville via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or B’s # 615 347-4988 as we need to know who to expect at the CB as well as the number of members eating at the Cookie Jar for lunch.
Plans are to take a 15 minute restroom break in McMinnville at McDonald’s, if you must snack make it a light one as we plan to arrive for lunch between 10:45 & 11:00. From the Cookie Jar we will depart for a nice drive with another stop along the way in Sweetwater at the Sweetwater Valley Farm Cheese Gift Shop where you may sample cheeses and/or have some ice cream! After taking this break we will head toward our home away from home for a few nights at the QUALITY INN & SUITES (no longer Microtel) 111 Rodney Orr Bypass, Robbinsville, NC.
After everyone has checked in and freshened up we will then go to dinner; there are several options available — Moonshiners Steak House, Lynn’s Place, few fast food choices. Please indicate your preference for dinner when responding to Barbara re traveling w/group so that the restaurants can be notified as to #’s to expect.
If you received this email and your plans have changed and you will not be going to Robbinsville please notify David & Barbara ASAP, all rooms that were blocked off for us were spoken for and we have someone who would like a room if one becomes available. Looking forward to seeing everyone soon, David & Barbara Williams (message would not go through w/all email’s so having to send several—members signed up are Brewer’s, DeBardelabon, Hammock, Herndon’s, Jennings (Tadd), Johnson’s, L.
