Fall Colors Is Upon Us!!
« on: September 09, 2019, 12:19:36 PM »
I have been entirely too quiet about Fall Colors this year, and I apologize. The dates are from September 26th(Thursday) through September29th. The Quality Inn Lewisburg, WV is once again our event hotel, and double rooms are $88 and kings are $85. This link should provide all the information you need (http://msta-se.com/fcr/ ). We have reservations for early bird dinner again at Food and Friends at 6:30 Thursday night. :trink39: Food and Friends has consistently provided us with a fine dining experience. I would like to ask those who bring a four wheeler to assist in transporting others to and from the restaurant. This is a just for fun event, so there is no registration and no fees. Room packages are reserved for the event in the name of the MSTA. Don't hesitate to invite a friend who isn't a member (YET)! My contact information is provided in the link above, as are routes, and other helpful information. Don't hesitate to fire any questions you may have in my direction! We will have the use of a large additional room in which to gather, and tell ridiculous lies! I'm looking forward to seeing everyone there! Syd Mayes

I have a room for Thursday night.  Syd, please count me in for dinner at Food and Friends.  And thank you for organizing the Fall Colors Ride once again.

I'm very sorry you won't be coming Bryan! If I'm not mistaken, this will be the first Fall Colors you've missed in a number of years. Thanks for letting me know. Syd

Hi Syd,


I'm attending and wanted to know if this is the best place to post to connect with others who might want to ride up to the event together on Thursday? I live Richmond and figure others might be coming from the Hampton Roads, Richmond or NVA areas.


Thanks in advance--Jay Levine

Just booked my room, easy peasy and very pleasant staff. See you all in a couple weeks.

Jay,
If you're on Facebook that might be a better place to try and link up with others, from what I hear there is usually more activity there than the forum. I'm not on Facebook so don't know the details of that. Being that Syd is also from Virginia he may know something about other members from that area who would be attending.

Well I procrastinated again. All sold out AND almost all the hotels around. Apparently there is a concert the same weekend. So unless someone has a room to share with me I won’t be going.

Wow no room at all the inns, because of a concert. I recall the state fairgrounds are in Lewisburg (an odd far east side of the state location) and that in some prior years they had a big horse show there.

The concert appears to be at the fairgrounds on Saturday, called Healing Appalachia, a fundraiser to help fight addiction.

See you folks in about a week.
