      On Friday, April 5 we will tour a Sibelco (formerly Unimin) quartz mining site. We will carpool to Spruce Pine and will leave the hotel at 8:15AM. Lunch will be provided onsite prior to returning to Asheville. That evening there will be a reception in the hospitality suite from 4-6PM before everyone does dinner on their own. Our Business Meeting will take place Saturday morning at the hotel at 8:30AM. The rest of Saturday will be a free day for people to explore Asheville. This charming city offers several glassblowing shops, a thriving cuisine and art scene, and many local breweries and wineries. Saturday evening will include a cocktail bar at 6PM followed by our Banquet at 7PM.

    Our hotel is within walking distance of downtown. They offer a free hot breakfast every morning and have been kind enough to waive our SELF-PARKING fee. Do not use valet parking unless you are willing to pay for it. We look forward to seeing everyone there. Please RSVP as soon as possible to allow for adequate preparations.
