LAST EDITED ON Jul-17-01 AT 12:46 PM (GMT)
Ok everyone, it's time for an executive decision, so here goes.
October 7 and 8, Sunday and Monday nights (leaving on Tuesday AM) - Best Western Biltmore, Asheville, NC (Asheville Biltmore 22 Woodfin Street, Asheville, North Carolina, United States, 28801 828-253-1851 Toll Free Reservations: 1-888-854-6897 Fax: 828-252-9205). As Bryan has noted, this location gives us plenty of places to go at night to eat, drink and be merry. (Might also be a Chiropractor in the neighborhood too.)
October 9 and 10, Tuesday and Wednesday nights (leaving on Thursday AM) - Woodlands Inn, Sapphire, NC (Woodlands Inn of Sapphire, Sherry & Bill Coy, Hosts, 1305 US Highway 64 West, Sapphire, NC 28774, (828) 966-4709, Fax: (828) 884-6233, email: firstname.lastname@example.org, http://www.woodlandsinn.net (I have sent Sherry at Woodlands an email to check on availability for five and/or six rooms. She will get back to me with the availability of the rooms. If you want to contact her directly there is an email address on their website for contact. Also, mention the Nikonians Photo Trip, not for a discount, but just to let her know you are one of the group I mentioned to her about in my message.)
October 11 and 12, Thursday and Friday nights (leaving whenever you want too) - Best Western, Townsend, TN. (Valley View Lodge Highway 321, PO Box 148, Townsend, Tennessee, United States, 37882 865-448-2237 Toll Free Reservations 1-800-292-4844 Fax: 865-448-9957)
There are plenty of vacancies at the Best Western hotels, as of last night when I checked.
The Inn was starting to fill-up. Let's all go ahead and make reservations at these places tonight or ASAP. If there are problems obtaining reservations, we will have plenty of time to recoup and make a decision on another place.
