Here's the weekend plan:
Thursday, 16 September
We'll make our way individually to Waynesboro, VA. You'll be on your own for lodging.
Friday, 17 September
We'll meet at a location in Waynesboro to be determined. We'll then depart in Fun Run groups on a two-hour drive down the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway, ending up in Bedford, VA for lunch. We'll enjoy a buffet lunch at the historic Blue Lady in Bedford, which will consist of assorted sandwiches, fresh fruit and veggies, potoato salad, and dessert. Non-alcoholic beverages included. Cost per person is $11.
After lunch, we'll continue south to Smith Mountain Lake and check-in at our respective lodging location.
After getting situated, we’ll take a 15-minute drive to FSR members Jeff and Jennifer Coston’s beautiful lakefront home. We'll plan to arrive about 3PM with time to relax or go for a short boat tour around the lake courtesy of Jeff and his friends. Each boat has a 10-person capacity and there's time enough for everyone who is interested in taking a ride, but we'll need a head count. We'll ask you to select a boat departure time: 3:00, 3:30 or 4:00PM. We'll also have the opportunity to tour one of Jeff's neighbor's very cool garage and car collection.
Cocktails will start around 5PM with a taco-bar dinner at 6PM. The evening will cost $35 per person and includes beer and wine.
Saturday, 18 September
On Saturday morning, we’ll meet at the Food Lion in Moneta, VA at a time to be determined, where you'll have an opportunity to buy a bag of non-perishable groceries for the Foodbank. We’ll then head out on a Fun Run, the first stop of which is the Foodbank where we'll donate our groceries as well as present a $500 check. The rest of the drive will include some great Virginia country roads around Smith Mountain Lake taking us to Rocky Mount, VA for lunch at the Rocky Mount Burger Company. Everyone will pay their own lunch tab.
The next stop after lunch is another local favorite – the Homestead Creamery – for some homemade ice cream! Or, if you prefer, you can drive directly back to your lodging and enjoy some time sitting by the lake.
Dinner on Saturday night will be at Vinny’s Italian Grill & Pizzeria, a short drive from the hotels. The cost of the buffet style Italian dinner will be $35 per person (does not include cocktails). The buffet will inclue Salad, garlic bread, Veal Marsala, Lasagna, four-cheese ravioli and dessert.
Sunday, 19 September
The Sunday morning agenda and the trip home is up to you. You can stay and enjoy the lake for while or head straight home.
Note: As many of you are aware, our charity events typically involve a silent auction to raise funds for our charities. While there will be a small online auction, we will not have one onsite during the weekend simply due to logistics. Donations to FSR sponsored charities from this event are limited to the registration fee. The check we’re presenting and any groceries that we pick up at the Food Lion where we start the Fun Run are for the local Foodbank. You are encouraged to make an additional donation to one of our sponsored charities. You can bring a check and Josie will forward or just let her know what your pledge will be so she can add it to the annual tally. Thanks for your generosity!
