The Blue Ridge Travel Association Annual Conference is set for Thursday and Friday, November 4-5!

We have worked out the details for what promises to be a very enjoyable and interesting special evening at Fort Chiswell Mansion (their latest visitor guide ad is attached so you can see the house . . . it's the big mansion right on I-81 near the Factory Merchants Outlet). The Town of Wytheville is graciously providing buses to take everyone to the mansion from LaQuinta . . . we'll have a reception at 6:00 on Thursday evening followed by a tour of the mansion, followed by a catered dinner. This dinner should be special because it is being prepared by Key Ingredient's own chef Chris Disibbio of Bluefield. Chris will be preparing an all organic dinner using local ingredients . . . combined with the special setting of this grand old home promises a night to remember! Cost per person for the reception, tour and dinner will be $30.00, in addition to your two day conference fee of $45.00.

Total cost for the two day conference AND the reception/tour/dinner at Ft. Chiswell Mansion will be $75.00, which includes a brunch Friday morning . . . same price as last year in Roanoke, BUT now to include dinner on Thursday evening!

Attached is your registration form . . . please select your choice of either conference only ($45.00) or conference including Ft. Chiswell Mansion dinner ($75.00). Please complete registration form and fax to Mary Jo Babbitt at 276 223 3446. Registration deadline is October 28!
