Default April 13-15 Volunteer Chapter Spring Meet

Jonathan Murphy, longtime PCS member and newly joined Volunteer Chapter Member, has offered to host our annual Spring meet this year in Memphis TN. We are really excited about this as we were 'running out of things' to do in Nashville. As you will see below, he has planned a very busy day for us Saturday, so bring your walking shoes. We'll be "Walking In Memphis". There is a lot of driving involved and for anyone that wants to drive their cars all day can, or if you want to ride in limos, that is an option, too. Hoping to see all the regulars, and members that this destination may be more convenient, and meet some new faces. He states he is a little OCD with the times, but wanted everyone aware of the drive times involved. Thanks Jonathan for putting this meet together!

If you have any questions, please call or email Jonathan at 901-299-9711 maxicat@att.net, Jeremy Ledford 615-604-8725 j78ledford@juno.com, or myself 615-969-2880 leeannboston@bellsouth.net

Darn it!! I have to work but you picked some great places to go. Elmwood cemetery is awesome I went on a tour during Halloween that they have which includes characters dressed up to tell the stories of the people buried there and the city. You all will have a great time at Mr. Tom's funeral home he has some great stuff there to see. There is a new Gus's that opend up on Mendenhall rd you all might like to check out their promo vehicle is and 80's collins hearse with a big rooster on top of it.

If you are planning on attending the meet in Memphis, please let Jeremy or myself know so we can inform Jonathan. It's a month from today! He's worked hard on this meet, so if you get a chance, please try to attend. Hope to see 'ya there! If you need to make a reservation, please do so soon, the rooms will be turned back out to inventory today, but the rates will still apply. There are also other hotels in the area.

Default Hotel Info Update

We will be changing hotels for the Memphis meet. We were told remaining rooms would be released 3/13/12 and the same group rate would apply. I called to make my reservation last night and all they had left were single bed rooms and it wasn't showing in the system to honor the group rate. Jonathon called today and the person that gave him the group rate is no longer in sales. He'll be shopping around for a new location in the next few days. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Updated info will be posted as soon as available.

Anyone that is planning on meeting for dinner on the 13th, please let Jonathan know. You can email him at maxicat@att.net. He would appreciate a head count so he can make arrangements with the restaurant.

Also, the hotel offers a complimentary full breakfast.
