Our registration, hospitality and meetings will all be in the same room this year! We do want to make you aware of the following: there is no sink or refrigerator in the room; therefore, please remember this when you consider what food you might bring to share. Individual rooms do have refrigerators and microwaves.
We have three tours scheduled: Nissan is a 1 1⁄2 hour tour on a tram; for safety reasons, children under 10 are not permitted; you must wear shirts with at least a 4-inch sleeve and closed-toe shoes; no flip-flops or sandals are permitted; weapons of any kind, cell phones, cameras and all other recording devices are strictly prohibited. Cannonsburgh Village (self- guided tour) represents approximately 100 years of early Tennessee life from the 1830’s to the 1930’s. Within the village is a gristmill, school house, telephone operator’s house, the University House, the Leeman House, a museum, a caboose, the Wedding Chapel, a doctor’s office, a general store, a blacksmith’s shop, a well, and other points of pioneering interest. Stones River National Battlefield will be a 90-minute caravan tour. The Battle of Stones River was a hard earned Union Victory. At dawn on December 31, 1862, the Confederate Army of Tennessee charged across foggy fields west of Murfreesboro to begin one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War. For three days, 81,000 men struggled and nearly one-third of them became casualties. The Battle was a tactical draw, but proved to be a significant strategic victory for the Union.
The auction, which was a huge success last year, will be on Friday evening, and we will have Ron Taylor (from last year) with live entertainment for us on Saturday night.
There is a lot to see and do in the Middle Tennessee area – so come early/stay late to get the most out of your trip!
Look forward to seeing you!
