: By this time NEXT ...
FRIDAY, we'll pretty much all be Gathered! It has really crept up on us!
All the pieces have fallen into place so nicely, I can hardly believe it! The River Walk, all the donated raffle items, the film, 2 credited cast members to be in attendance, the nice conglomeration of folks coming from all over, the PG, the T-Shirts, the ES Mask Raffle (official now! :)), the itinerary for all three days, CRP (who'll be supplying the firewood for our bonfire!), the Bunkhouse displays ... it has all fit! We can only hope for decent weather. As of right now, expect warm & muggy! We'll keep you posted. Boy, the falls of the Little River will sure feel good. Correct me if I'm wrong, Eric, but I think you can swim near Hooker Falls ... yes? It looks like at least 14 of us will brave the tug of the sandman and appear up on the Blue Ridge to watch the sun come up! Most everyone else will meet up with us at Louise's for breakfast.
Just one thing I wanted to emphasize again ... For those of you not sleeping at The Bunkhouse, be sure to stop by either Thursday or Friday evening (both "open houses"), depending on your arrival date, to pick up your Program Guide packet. It'll help you immensely to be where you need to be!
Will send out a group E-Mail this weekend with a few other notes & some directions to help get you started ...
See you all next week! Have a safe journey!
Oh ... anyone still interested in signing on? We can squeeze you in, no problem. You'll just have to go "a-la-carte" at Chimney Rock. Deadline for mail-ins for the mask raffle is POSTMARKED by the 8th. Of course, it must reach us by Thursday, so I'd suggest getting it out sooner, if you can. Good luck to everyone who participated! There will be some available AT The Gathering. And yes, Patty, we're saving you yours!
