High Dom, Paula and I would like to attend and get on the roster. We live a couple hours away and would be available to help as needed.

Sorry everyone the toll free numbers in the newsletter are incorrect. I used my phonebook but did not call to see if they were working. I promise not to do it again until next time. :-)

The correct numbers are:

Holiday Inn Express (877) 424-2449 or (423) 591-8500

Hampton Inn (800) 426-7866 or (423) 305-6800

Have a great day,

Dom

Hi Dom, the tour sounds great and Barbara is making our hotel. reservations as I type this. Put us on the registration list. I have a few non O-2-O tourers who might be able to attend. Too bad you have to do all the planning yourself. If we can help in any way, long distance, just ask.
