2014 Spring Dinner Meeting

When: April 25th
Where: Eastman Lodge
How: Last page of the newsletter

Time to enjoy fellowship as the outdoor season begins…

Our evening program is on “Amazing Places in The Tennessee Blue Ridge” by David Ramsey.  The Appalachian Trail closely follows the North Carolina–Tennessee border along the main Appalachian crest.  Although the wild and scenic qualities of the lands that lie on each side of this boundary are virtually equal, those of the Tennessee region have often been overshadowed by their North Carolina counterparts.  This program will explore the Tennessee Blue Ridge ending with an update about Rocky Fork.

Happy “Trails” Hour begins at 5:30pm.  Dinner will be BBQ from Phil’s Dream Pit for $12 inclusive per adult and $6 for children.  Club awards will be presented.  Door prizes!  Done by 9pm.

Appalachian Trail Movie at Erwin – October 20, 2013 6-8:30PM

“Appalachian Impressions” is an epic story about hiking the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine. The movie takes you on a six-month, 2,180-mile journey along the most famous long-distance hiking trail in the world. Along the way, you’ll meet hikers who have embarked on this trek, carrying everything they need on their backs. You’ll hear their stories, experiences, and challenges of daily life traveling the Trail across fourteen states. Locally, the film is being shown at the Capitol Cinema in Erwin, TN on October 20, 2013 from 6-8:30PM. The opportunity is the 2013 membership drive, which for $30 or more donation gains a year’s subscription to the colorful AT Journeys magazine among several benefits. Youth under 13 can see the movie free. Tickets can be purchased here.
