Hey! We're Going to Virginia

Our Vice-President and Program Director has just released plans for the WNCCWRTs Spring Tour.  Richard Smith has tentatively planned a four-day and three-night trip to the upper Shenandoah Valley from Friday, May 20 through Monday, May 23, 2016.  The schedule includes stops at Cedar Mountain, Brandy Station and possibly Culpepper Court House on Saturday. Then Sunday would include Cedar Creek and New Market Battlefield & Museum. 

Transit days to and from are set for Friday, May 20 and Monday, May 23.  Participants will be expected to drive themselves or car pool  as van rental cost is prohibitive.  Individuals are encouraged to coordinate among themselves regarding ride-sharing or with Board assistance once the travel roster is confirmed. 

Accommodations will be at the Days Inn in New Market, VA.  Eight rooms have been reserved under the name of Civil War Round Table.  The cost of the room is $77.15 per night with a continental breakfast provided by the Days Inn. The Hotel phone number is 1-540-740-4100 and rooms must be reserved by no later than April 20 to receive the discounted rate.

A $50 non-refundable deposit to the WNCCWRT will be required by May 9, 2016.  The deposit is to cover ticket cost, incidental fees, etc. incurred by the trip.  However, a commitment that late will not guarantee the above room rate.  Final details and updates will be forthcoming at the March 14 meeting.  Members, their guests, and the interested public-at-large are encouraged to come, learn, and enjoy.  Those wanting to make reservations or needing further information, please contact Richard Smith 828-293-5924.
