    BRPT 8: Schedule

    Greetings Blue Ridge Parkway Tour Participants –

    We hope you are getting excited about the upcoming Blue Ridge Parkway Tour! This year's BRP Tour, the 10th annual running, will start at the northern terminus of the BRP, near Waynesboro, VA. This is one of our most loved events, along one of America’s most scenic highway.

    The tour will kick off with a welcome get-together meal on Thursday evening at the Clocktower Restaurant & Bar (27 W Beverley St, Staunton, VA). Early Friday morning, we'll break up into our three groups - Bear, Wolf & Otter, heading South stopping at various overlooks and points of interest along the way. Feeder roads to and from the Blue Ridge Parkway afford us some twisties, and the parkway gives us a relaxing drive, with scenic overlooks, quaint shops and historical sites. We have approximately 30+ participants throughout the weekend.

    Our first overnight stop will be Friday evening in Jefferson, NC. The second overnight stop will be in Hendersonville, NC (South of Asheville) on Saturday evening. Sunday morning we'll hit the BRP for the final leg to the southern terminus of the BRP in the Cherokee, NC area. That should be about lunch time and everyone will go their separate ways with a ton of memories and stories!!

    Your Group Leaders for the Tour are:

    Bear Group: Matthew Davis
    Wolf Group: Lane Gandy
    Otter Group: Jeff Cole
