Overnight Drive to Blowing Rock, NC

We are having an overnight drive out on August 20, 2016 to the beautiful town of Blowing Rock, NC. We will stay at the Blowing Rock Inn on August 20, 2016.  Rooms will be $119 per night plus applicable taxes.  On Sunday, we will return to Asheville via the Blue Ridge Parkway and the drive out will end there.
This trip will be limited to 20 cars due to the available space at the Blowing Rock Inn and we will determine the participants on a first come, first served basis.  An additional 4 villas are available at $159 per night if anyone is interested.  If you are going, please make your own room reservation at the Blowing Rock Inn 828 295-7921.  Be sure and tell them you are with the Porsche club.  Lodging reservations must be made by phone at the above number.  The night has been blocked for us and internet reservations will not be possible.  After making your reservation, please email me at vgsmith1944@gmail.com and let me know you are planning to attend.  I expect this trip to sell out and if that happens, we will start a waiting list.
More information and an agenda for the trip will be available later.
