In case someone didn't get the newsletter I just sent out:

The BRP Tour 2013 is almost here! Next week most of you will be making your way to Cherokee, NC for the start of the event. Once you arrive in Cherokee, we hope you'll have time to check-in to your hotel room and freshen up a bit for dinner. Our Welcome Dinner event will be held at:

Paula Deen's Kitchen (at the Harrah's Cherokee Casino)
777 Casino Drive
Cherokee, NC 28719

We will enjoy the All-You-Can-Eat buffet that evening. The entrees for the evening on the AYCE buffet include fried chicken, chicken & dumplings, and country fried steak (obviously southern cuisine night!). The buffet costs $16 per person with children ages 6 to 12 only $8 and children 5 and under eat free. Drinks are not included in the price. It looks like sodas, tea, etc., run about $2.50. Adult beverages are available (hey, it is a casino).

Our meal will start at 6:30 pm. The restaurant manager says he will be seating us together. If you show up late, just ask to be seated with the group. After folks have had a chance to enjoy their meal and some fellowship with other MINI owners, we'll spend some time talking about driving the BRP, the schedule, what we'll be doing, etc. We will also hand out registration packages with t-shirts for anyone who ordered those.

If you are joining up with the event somewhere along the route, please find one of the run leaders during a stop and we'll help you with getting your goodies.

We have a draft itinerary document under review at the moment, so hopefully that will be going out to participants in the next couple days. We'll also share some information to help you pack and prepare to travel the BRP.

Looking forward to seeing everyone soon!!!
