The “event” hotel is the Quality Inn & Suites in Robbinsville, NC. The rooms are small and it is kind of pricey for what you get, but it is luxurious compared some of the other options in town. $95+tax for the no-refundable rate, $105 if want the possibility to cancel by Thursday 10/31. You are responsible for making your own reservations.

The following is a rough draft of an itinerary for the weekend. It is the same as it has always been, but we are going up sometime soon to scout a different Saturday loop. Stay tuned. The only dates and times that are locked in are our Friday morning’s departure from the Sprint/Greg’s Gas+ and Brian and Donna’s Sunday morning departure to home.

    Shirley and I are tentatively scheduling to go. We have to work out some details someone to keep pet. We would probably drive over to Augusta from Statesboro on Thursday even.
    Will follow up with a positive in a few weeks

    Just made room reservation for Friday and out on Sunday. By the way, there are plenty of rooms available. Looking for nice weather and plenty of color.

    Bill and I won’t be able to make it. Maybe we can go next year. Have fun and be safe.
