Maggie Valley Particulars (finally!)
Bill t 6 nc

    I plan to arrive the afternoon of June 23 and will be
    staying at the Castlewood Inn.For those who might be interested in staying there as well,
    rooms are $49.95 per night, plus tax. 828-926-5348.

    I thought we could have our initial get together at the
    Country Vittles Restaurant, about 200 yards from the
    Castlewood Inn, 828-926-1820, around 7 PM the evening of
    the 23rd.

    Decided to try something different for the 24th. How many
    have been on the Great Smoky Mountains Railway?? I've seen
    the train going through the Nantahala Gorge, but have never
    riden the train. They have a package deal that includes a
    train ride through the gorge, a rafting trip with the
    Nantahala Outdoor Center (the best in the business in my
    biased opinion), a picnic lunch, and transport back to
    Bryson City. Altogether, the cost is $71 for adults and $56
    for children. The trick is they prefer you make
    reservations (1-800-872-4681) at least a week prior, but
    they will take "walk ups" the day of the trip.

    If possible, I need to know how many plan to attend so I
    can alert the Country Vittles Restaurant! Please let me
