Fall Dinner – Friday, November 8th

With the shorter days comes an opportunity to gather at the Eastman Lodge to trade stories with friends about your adventures.  Happy “Trails” Hour  begins at 5:30pm. Dinner is a Seafood Boil, which is a throwback to the 1970’s when seafood was the fare at many club dinners.

Our evening program “Tennessee’s Western Blue Ridge: America’s next great park?” outlines a concept.  The western rim of the Blue Ridge lies partially in northeastern Tennessee and includes spectacular wild places, such as the Roan Highlands, Unakas, Bald Mountains and Tennessee’s newest state park, Rocky Fork.  Informal discussions have begun among local citizens to have part of this region designated as a new national recreation area.  David Ramsey, a nationally recognized conservation photographer who was a leader in the effort to preserve the Rocky Fork area, will present images and information in support of this ambitious goal.

More information and the reservation form is in the October 2013 newsletter.

The Week Ahead – October 17th

You may be thinking that with Fall quickly approaching (or is it here already?) the activities will be slowing down. Well they have according to our schedule, except for our Fall Dinner this Friday of course. Rehash your summer adventures with friends and good food from Firehouse Restaurant. Stick around for (or come just for) Toney Scales as he discusses the Southwest Virginia Trilogy: Natural Tunnel, the Breaks, and Cumberland Gap. Details in the newsletter.
