    The Convention Web Page has been updated with After the Ball reservation information to include the Tapoca Lodge on the third night. Also the registration form can now be filled out in Adobe and emailed - a much less painful process.

    Below is part of an email sent by Kip (our host) to most of the N.C. Convention attendee who have made reservations. I too encourage you to make your reservations in the main lodge.

    Walt


    "There are several buildings with guest rooms at the Waynesville Inn. The original Lodge was built in the 1920s and its rooms have character. Walt and I had requested that everyone be put in the Lodge to promote comradery and so if we made too much noise, we would only disturb guests within our group. I just noticed that this request was evidently not acted upon because, as you can see from the list, we have been split up between Mountain View building and the Lodge. The Mountain View rooms are nicer and have wonderful views. The Mountain View rooms are short walk away (100 200 yards) from the Lodge where meals and events will take place and where the hospitality suite will be located. Both groups of rooms are a little dated but a bargain with breakfast included. Hopefully, some of the more particular members wont mind too much."

    We've manage to get six additional rooms at the Waynesville Inn, so if anyone tried without success, you might give it another run.

    Walt -- Do we need to let you know / register for after-the-ball?

    Leftover parts are proof you've made it even better

    No registration other than making your hotel reservations.

    At last count, the Waynesville Inn is booked solid with 112 attendees. If you can't manage to get reservations, an alternative is the:

    Best Western Smoky Mountain Inn

    As of today, there is still flooding in parts of the Carolina due to the hurricane, Florence. I think rain is also in the near term forecast. Have any changes been made to the schedule due to inclimate weather?

    Forecast does indeed look like it may rain.

    Unfortunately, I won't be making it to the concourse as planned. Running a business takes priority and I just have too much work in the shop to leave it for three days.

    NOT complaining, but I thought I'd post this here in case anyone is looking for accommodations in Waynesville. I was going to stay at the Best Western Smokey Mountain Inn but I cancelled. So, there is a room now available!

    Their address is 130 Shiloh Trail, Waynesville, NC 28786
