Virginia Win Country Weekend.
Lodging, Full Breakfast, evening wine tasting at the
Iris Inn Bed &
Saturday includes any of the following, your choice: A visit to
Polyface Farm - White Oak Lavender Farm - Ox Eye Tasting Room -
Barboursville Vineyard and Historic Ruins, or relaxing in rockers
and enjoying the sights at the Iris Inn!
Sunday - THE Day for the Virginia Wine Tour! Talcott Limo Service
pick-up at the Inn. Transportation via 2 -14 passenger vehicles with
such amenities as TV and DVD. A "picnic lunch back-pack" can be
prepared by the Iris Inn for those interested. Five+ hours to 3
wineries and perhaps ending with dinner at a local "brewery". The
tour will take us to KING FAMILY VINEYARD and VERITAS VINEYARD (a
third in the works...) to include watching a bit of an afternoon
polo match at King Family! Tasting costs are "separate" and cannot
be included by law.
Estimated cost for the weekend adventure to be $500-$600 per
couple or approximately $300 for a single person. Room rates are
based on DOUBLE occupancy. We have the full INN (6 rooms) with
spillover into the cottages and cabins.
First deposit of $250 was due April 26 and rooms are filling up
very quickly. I plan to cut-off at 24 to keep the winery tour a
manageable number. Please make checks payable to Roanoke Ski Club
and mail to Shelley Gibson, Activities Director, 97 Jameswood Ct,
Forest , VA 24551. Email email@example.com. Mobile phone
July 27 (Saturday, 3:30pm). Bluegrass & BBQ at the Phlegar Family Farm. Prepare to enjoy a fun day of canoeing,
kayaking, swimming, hiking....it is your choice how you care to spend the day!
Arrive after 3:30 pm at the farm for eating, music, dancing and just socializing
among old and new friends. Socialize in an atmosphere that is designed for folks
to relax and for children of all ages to play in a worry free and safe environment.
Mr. Pig has been invited to and "for" supper Saturday night. To compliment Mr. Pig,
we ask that you bring a prepared dish rather than a store bought can or bag of something.
The food can be stored in the house and heated on the cooker which warms Mr. Pig.
Please RSVP by July 15 if you are coming and the number of people in your party.
This will help to determine the size of Mr. Pig to invite. A small donation would be
appreciated to help pay for the BBQ, plates, cups, utensils and Port-A-Johns!
Please bring your beverage of choice, something to sit on, covered dish and an attitude
to have some fun!
Canoe/Kayak float trips on the near-by New River are available
through Tangent Outfitters in Pembroke, VA. Phone 540-626-4567. The last time we had
this event a group of us gathered at Tangent and canoed/kayaked together prior to the BBQ.
More information and details in future newsletters, but please mark your calendars now
for this fun event! I understand from the Phlegar's this is the last time for the Bluegrass
& BBQ event that has been a long-time family tradition.
September 27 - 29 (Friday - Sunday). Weekend at the
At Mountain Quest in West Virginia. The Club is returning to
the Inn after last year's successful and popular weekend. Mark
your calendars now. We have the entire Inn reserved but space
