October Townsend informal meet
Posted by: danmas
Date: June 12, 2014 10:22PM

Make plans now to attend the fourth annual "October in Townsend" informal gathering of V8, V6, I4, I6 and other performance enhanced British car aficionados at the Talley Ho Inn, Townsend, TN, October 2 -5. Note that we've added a day this year, by popular demand, arriving Thursday evening and leaving Sunday morning. Of course, you're welcome to come early and leave late if you wish, or come late and leave early if that's all your schedule will allow. Rooms at the Talley Ho Inn have been blocked out for us for arrival on either the 2nd or the 3rd.

Motel contact info: [www.talleyhoinn.com] 1-800-448-2465 or 865-448-2465 Mention British V8 and/or Jim Watson to get a reduced rate.

Our plans/schedule/registration data: Show up, have a great time, go home, with a heavy emphasis on "have a great time." This is a strictly informal, make it up as we go, type of event. The only thing for sure is you will have a lot of fun with a bunch of great people, drive on a bunch of great sports car type roads with great scenery, consume some great beverages, and eat some great food.

Any questions, contact me via PM or Jim at spridget@charter.net

Christa and I are booked. We're sharing the Fox Den cabin with Ted & Judy Lathrop.

The Smokies will seem like child's play after the Rockies , but they will still be exciting.

Getting there will be child's play, too, after Colorado. My plans are to crash at the Moor Chateau. :)

Yes, 25+% humidity and mid 80's were the highs. DRY. Altitude was 6200 Ft.+. Great weather and wonderful location. Just need to move Kansas, Ark. and Missouri to location more convenient (Either up into Dakotas or down into Texas), Ha! for the East coast guys. I can envision the Mighty Miss. running along the front range. :-) Anyway, great meet and wonderful new friends plus old ones. SAFETY FASTER! NEXT STATION, TOWNSEND for 3rd annual meet.

Just a bit warmer than that, Kelly. More like 90-92. Except on top of Pike's Peak, where it was upper 40s.

Driving across Western Kansas, the temp was 102. Even warmer on the way back, at 104 degrees. Felt like I was in a convection oven!

Hey all, esp. JIm and Dan,

How many people are coming? All booked up?

Intend to go, but not sure yet on Thursday or Friday arrival.

Max

Max,

Richard Moor has rented the house again. I'm sure we will have an extra bed.

I guess that I should direct this question towards Jim Watson because he is the smart one, BUT.
I'm coming down on the 1st, mainly because I really want to go to Oak Ridge.
A while back I read the book The Girls of Atomic City and found it really interesting. When I was last in Townsend, we did do the Norris Dam, but had know idea about the history of Oak Ridge and that we were so very close.
Have any of you been to Oak Ridge and is it worth the trip?
Merv

I may be able to join in. Was hesitating because my brother is ill and needs a bone marrow transplant. The good news is that I am a match. I thought the procedure might conflict but found out today that that The transplant will be mid Oct not early Oct.

Is there any room for me or should I try to book a room some place near?

Max, do you want to ride together?? You can drive a sorry old V6 if you can put up with the lack of cylinders.

PJ,

I think that the house that Rich Moor rented may be at capacity for those wanting their own bed. Not 100 % sure, though. Somebody may have a spare bed.

Merv,

Not sure what it is like these days. I went when I was a kid back in the 60s. They gave me an irradiated dime. Doubt they do that any more.
