We will be staying at the Red Roof Inn Charlotte – University (Phone No. 1-704-598-0007) on Friday and Saturday nights. The hotel is located at 5111 Equipment Drive, Charlotte, NC. The room rate is $79.19 per night (plus tax), we have 20 rooms blocked under block code (booking number) is B728BCCTRP with the group name of Beachcomber Corvette Club. Be sure you give them the booking number to get the reduced rate.

This car show is being held at the Rick Hendrick property located at 4400 Papa Joe Hendrick Blvd. in Charlotte, NC. In addition to the car show, tours of the Rick Hendrick Heritage Museum and Race Car shops will be available (at an added cost). I’ve been told there will be over 40 vendors on site in addition to food, ice cream and slushy trucks. I was also told that if you keep your eyes open you just might see a C8 driving through the parking area. There are several door prizes that will be given out throughout the day with one special door prize being given out by Mr. Hendrick himself. Go to https://queencitycorvette.com/ and follow their directions to the event registration page to obtain the registration form and to sign-up for the optional tours.

On Sunday, October 13, we’ll head west to Bryson City, NC where at about 1:00 p.m. we’ll climb aboard the Great Smokey Mountain Railroad for a 44 mile, 4.5 hour train trip, taking in the fall foliage colors of the Great Smokey Mountains and enjoy lunch on the train (lunch is included in the cost of the train ride). Lunch consists of a BBQ sandwich, coleslaw and chips or a Veggie wrap, rice pilaf and pita chips. Also, you’ll receive a souvenir cup with drinks provided throughout the day. The cost of the train ride is $92.45 (per person). You can make your train ride payment in person at one of the BCC meetings or by mail to the Beachcombers Corvette Club, PO Box 6721, Virginia Beach, VA 23456. Payment must be received by September 10, and you’ll be added to list of paid attendees. Be sure you annotate the check is for the Great Smokey Mountain Train Ride. The Beachcombers will then make one payment for all attendees. Note: The BCC has to confirm number attending and make final payment by September 19, therefore if you intend to participate in the Great Smokey Mountain Train Ride your payment must be received prior to September 19, 2019.
Afterward the train ride we’ll take a short drive to the Microtel Inn & Suites located at 82 Songbird Forest Road, Bryson City, NC, where we have 20 rooms blocked for our one night stay. The room rate is $85.00 (plus tax). The hotel can be reached at 1-828-488-7900, be sure you ask for the Beachcombers Corvette Club booking to get the discounted rate.
After you settle in at the hotel we can drive less than 10 miles down the road to the Harrah’s Cherokee Casino. The casino offers various dining facilities that should suit everyone’s needs and then if you’re feeling lucky you can try your luck on the slots or tables.

On Monday morning we’ll get on the road for a leisurely drive back to Tidewater. There may be a stop in Winston-Salem for lunch and some local sightseeing for anyone interested.
NOTE: The deadline for making hotel reservations at either hotel is September 20, otherwise you may not get the discounted rate.
