Please join us for a fall tour that will include MBCA members from the Carolinas and Peachtree Sections. The tour will take place on Saturday, October 24th. We will gather at the home of Richard and Donna King near Salem South Carolina at 11:00 a.m. for a simple "brunch" at their gazebo and then depart from there at around noon for what will be about a 3 hour drive through some very beautiful, rural countryside. Detailed maps will be provided at the gazebo. Please see the attachments for driving directions to the King home.
The drive will conclude at a location that will be suitable for on foot sightseeing, hiking. An optional dinner that evening will be arranged at a restaurant in Cashiers.
There is nothing planned for either Friday or Sunday. Feel free to organize what ever you may choose for those days.
For those of you planning to stay overnight for this event, it is time to make room reservations, NOW. There are no properties that will block off any number of rooms for groups during this very popular time of the year and all require a 2 night minimum stay. Two options that do have availability are:
- The Hampton Inn, in Sapphire Valley (rates start at about $215). You can reserve online or by calling them locally at 828 743 4545.
- The Mitchell's lodge in Highlands (rates run from$ 169-$224 per night). Contact them online or at 828 526 2267. They offer a variety of lodge type cabins.
Both properties have quite a few rooms available now but will fill up very quickly for this busy time of year.
Depending on your location, it would be possible to make this a one-day turn around.
The registration fee is $20 per person. All participants will need to sign a standard MBCA waiver form to participate
