I need to provide you with a few updates about our upcoming trip. What a great and exciting trip and weekend of marching band we are in for! However, we will NOT be staying at the Quality Inn previously described. That GM contacted me earlier this week and told me they couldn’t provide the 52 rooms we have a contract for!!!! There will be more to follow about that … . Needless to say, I’ve been in crisis management mode for over 2 days now. I am pleased to now report we ALL will be staying at the same hotel, Holiday Inn Greensboro Airport. It is actually only a few miles from the YMCA for Saturday night. Holiday Inn Greensboro, 6426 Burnt Poplar Road, Greensboro, NC 27409. 336-668-0421. There are still details to finalize that I’m frantically working on, but our accommodations are at least set.
On Friday evening, we will be dining at Ryan’s buffet, 100 Brevard Road, Asheville, NC 28806. 828-665-9963. We should arrive there around 6:30 PM and the manager is prepared and is closing half the restaurant for us. We will then proceed to the Holiday Inn, which is about 30 minutes past Winston-Salem.
Saturday lunch will be on the student’s own at the stadium and dinner will be Chik Fil A sandwiches with chips and deserts from our hospitality crew. Saturday night we are still staying at the Kernersville YMCA, 1113 W Mountain Street, Kernersville, NC 27284. 336-996-2231. Air mattresses and/or bed rolls can be brought and used at the YMCA. We will bring a few shop vacs which can blow them up in about 10 seconds. We are providing a breakfast spread there for Sunday morning before we get on the road on the way back.
Sunday lunch will also be on the student’s own at fast food around Huntington, WV.
