Dear colleagues,
  I've confirmed our Springboard Gathering meeting space for Nov. 30 thru Dec 3 (meeting ends formally on Dec 2) @ the United Methodist Foundation for Evangelism at Lake Junaluska, NC (24 miles west of Asheville, and just off I-40). The Foundation is just inside the western entrance to Lake Junaluska from US 19 [Dellwood Road]. 
  We will have a very large conference room with wi-fi (sorry, no satellite hookup yet!), video projection (with automatic blackout window shades), and those 18 inch wide tables we all know and love! 
  Rooms are available across the street @ the Junaluska Apartments and Lakeside Lodge [www.lakejunaluska.com/accommodations.aspx?id=60] for the "Minister's Special" rate of $29 per room per night (for up to four people per room). Call 800/222-4930 to make your individual reservation for as many nights as you wish.
    Most of the Apartments have one BR w/ twin beds. All have private bath, kitchenette, heat & A/C, but no phone, no pool, no pets, (and no TV). The Lodge has phone and TV, and is a "Motel 6 type facility" with heat & A/C, two double beds in each room, but no kitchenette.
  The "minister's special" is $29/night at either facility. This rate is available to "ministers and paid staff of any denomination."
  You could mention my name ("Wayne Marshall Jones") as organizer. They think it's an informal group of about 30 who are a buncha retired missionaries and ministers, etc. Which we kinda are! However, to get the "minister's special" individual rate, we are NOT a conference (with meals, meeting rooms @ a hotel, etc.). But you have to call individually and ask for that rate, and say that you quality for the minister's/staff rate. If they ask what denomination, you could say the magic words "Ecumenical Institute."

  We'll be providing our own food using the catering kitchen off the conference room. We will share the cost of meals, and the menu will be arranged on site. Local specialties include Southern fried chicken, North Carolina barbecue, etc. and we can get cold cuts, salads, or order box lunches if we like. If you have dietary restrictions, please let me know in advance.
  Since I'm temporarily the 'registrar', please let me know as soon as you've made your room reservations and travel arrangements. If you're flying into ATL or CLT, please contact me to arrange carpooling. AVL is the closest airport, and, depending on Interstate traffic, is about a 45 minute drive from Lake Junaluska (it's on I-26 at the southern edge of ever-expanding Asheville).
