The weather at the fall get together has been exceptional...sunny, slight breeze, temperatures in the high 70"s....as usual, friendships have been made, and renewed..it is a delight to see our old friends! Last night visited a local cruise-in at a mall parking lot in Maryville/Alcoa..the usual participants were delighted to see a bunch of modifed British cars....from there went on to eat at Aubreys a local,dining establishment...very little structure to these get togethers, which is exactly the way we like it..most folks just do "their own thing" during various times of the day, but always find time to return to the parking lot for talking about the cars...and of course, a beer or two!

So good to see everyone, and the weather was outstanding. (Well, except for yesterday morning's showers...)

Thanks to all for being here, and a special thanks to Charles Long for the donation for burgers last night.

Looking forward to W. Virginia!

Great weather and renewed friendships, was like a "Family Reunion". Really good turnout and people from all over the East, some had to contend with escapees from "Hurricane Mathew." Townsend was quite and not overcrowded, but a lot going on. Ate breakfast on Sat. AM with Marilyn & Merv at "Riverstone Rest.", a "quite" and excellent place to have a good breakfast, Locals dine here as evidenced by the crowded parking lot with Blount County tags. The prices are reasonable and service great. No, we did not get a free meal to promote this :-). Reservations made for next Oct., the 9th Fall Gathering. Y'all Come.

Jean and I had a blast!

I got a lot of video on my phone, but my GoPro crashed and I lost all of the Foothills Parkway/Tail of the Dragon video I shot on both days.

Food was great.

Visiting with friends was great.

Daily travels were great.

Moonshine tasting was great.

Special thanks out to Dan Masters (and Christa), Jim Watson (and Melinda), Mickey Richaud (and Janet), and Charles Long (and Perky) for their assistance throughout the weekend!

Jean has already made our reservation at the Tally Ho for next year!

The 2017 Talley Ho dates are October 5, 6, and 7. The wise thing to do is make your reservations now for next year (Talley Ho was completely booked during our stay) If schedule conflicts arise, you can always cancel. Thanks to Dan and Jim for making this event so successful...also to Mickey and Janet for making their lovely home avaiable for the Saturday night cookout...what a great time it was!

Wish I'd had my camera out; nobody's posted any pictures yet. But it was a great time.

By the way, forgot to mention earlier that someone left a small styrofoam cooler at the house Saturday night. Will be happy to return it if you want it. (Alas, the couple of bottles of Stout that were in it have perished...)

Would that be Mickey Bear?

I know you have seen the front of your place, but never like this.

Thanks Janet and Mickey.
