If you have never been to this rendezvous come on down is a beautiful time in the mountains for Virginia. Just ask anyone that has been it a free event with no table fees no gate fees and great food and good mountain music and a lot of new friends to be made.

Hey, Bandy. How is the traffic situation on I-77 between Blue Field and Bland. Earlier in the summer we had a long go of it getting through the tunnel. Coming from West Virginia would I be better off taking an alternate route? . . . Thanks, Houben.

Well, yes I think she is, but right now she owes Mr. Dobbins money, so she might be trying to avoid him.

Yes but you brought her chocolate, and she wanted strawberry.

She went ahead and ate it anyway.

Just a heads up. I don't know how the Bland meet is scheduled but it looks like the third week in October. I have heard that the 2019 SENTA will be Oct. 18-19 which is also the third week in October. I hope you can avoid a scheduling conflict.

They are on the same weekend. Those are the only dates both can have theirs because of the venues being booked solid before and after. I will be at the Bland convention in 2019.

The 2017 NTA SE was the same weekend as Bland also. I went to Bland in '17 and will do the same in '19.

I personally would like to see the NTA SE held in the spring to eliminate the conflicts with established state and local rondys. Bland and Crossville are only 4 hours apart so they are competing for some of the same vendors and attendees.

I drove through the Princeton area on I77 last Saturday. The north bound lanes are open. One lane of the south bound side was closed from mile marker 9 to the tunnel at mile marker 1. Slow going but it was moving.
