I received a call from them this afternoon, asking if anyone was going to reserve any of the rooms I blocked out.  They only had my room and maybe 2 more that had identified themselves as being with the Georgia Fieros group.  They removed 10 rooms from our block, leaving a total of 10 rooms. 

Did you make reservations in Gatlinburg?  Tomorrow, the 18th is the last day to get our discount. 
Love my Fieros, S-curves and speed.

A reminder that today, Midnight is your last opportunity to receive the Georgia Fieros rates at The Edgewater Inn in Gatlinburg.  If you plan to wait and get a room somewhere else, don't be surprised at the rates, usually in the $150 and up range, even if you can get a room. 

They limit 1 car per room, but I was told that if all rooms aren't taken or there were cancellations, they would make allowances.  They also have free parking arrangements with a parking area just across the street from the hotel.  So, if you're sharing a room with another driver, go ahead and make your reservation. 

NO PETS.

You could come to Robbinsville again and meet us for lunch.  Lynn's Place on E. Main, downtown across the street from the county jail.  We should be there around noon.  I'll be there this time and I'll buy.

I'm posting this only on the Georgia Forum, hoping I can get some better attendance from our members.  Even though the announced deadline is past to take advantage of the discounted rate at the Edgewater Inn, Kahla told me privately that if all our rooms hadn't been booked, and there were still  some rooms available, she would honor the $100 discount.  So far, we only have 7 of the 20 rooms taken, and some of those are not by Georgia Fieros people. 

Call the hotel at 800-423-9582 and make your reservation under the Georgia Fieros group rates.  If it turns out you can't go, I believe you have 72 hours prior to cancel without being charged.  You can ask at the time you make the call.  If the front desk won't honor the rate, ask to speak to Kahla Williams.  Her direct number is 865-277-0159.

If any member is interested in going to RFTH and driving one of my cars or The Lil Duke Coupe, they are available.  I spoke with Dave and CowsPatoot today and it looks like neither of them will be making the run.  It looks like Dave will be taking on a heavier work load and Greg has urgent family business to attend to.  That means that Sharon won't be coming, either.  Ron R. also called to say that it's looking more like he will be cancelling, too. 

I had planned to let Dave drive the 87 and Greg and Sharon were to drive the Coupe.  I was planning to drive the 86.  So, if any of you want to change your plans for the 16-18, let me know. 

Steve, do you know if Amanda plans to tag along with us?

Amanda won't be coming this year, unless something has changed.
I'm still planning to go. Won't be staying at the Days Inn, however. If you hear of a cancellation, don't be alarmed. :D

If you are buying I might be there in my truck. Did my 86 GT sound alright to you Charlie?

What day should I be there in my truck? Gail would like it to be on a Saturday, so she can come too.

I expect to be at the Days Inn in Clayton at least by 2PM, Friday Sept. 16.  I will have your Tshirts and participant packages that includes registration forms, route sheets, and some information about Gatlinburg and the surrounding National Parks area.  Please find me to get your information package.

Charlie, can you email the route sheet to me?
I'm not staying at the Days Inn, but I'm planning to meet y'all on Saturday morning.
Just in case I run late. I certainly don't expect everyone to wait...

Thanks!
