Please make your checks payable to Tonia Smith and mail them to:
155 Woodland Dr.

I will notify you by email when I receive your check.
A reminder that Friday night dinner will be at the home of Laura Denny. Laura lives in Front Royal, Virginia. Dinner will be followed by an overview of the battles we will be studying during the muster. Following the overview will be an evening of Sixties music, 1860's that is provided by Jim Morgan. Saturday night dinner is on your own.
Again each person is responsible for making his/her own hotel reservation(s). Muster headquarters will be at the Hampton Inn on Apple Blossom Way, Winchester, Virginia, where I have reserved a block of twelve rooms. More can be added as needed. The price of the rooms with group discount is $88/night, tax included. Because we are getting a special rate the hotel will not honor any other discounts such as AAA. It is imperative that you tell the reservation clerk that you are with the Civil War Discussion Group, Confirmation number (85541265) or you will not get your discount. Phone number for the Hampton Inn is 540-667-7227. No one is obligated to stay at the Hampton Inn but the bus leaves at 8:00 a.m. In order to have maximum time on the battlefields we will not be able to wait for anyone.
The deadline for sign-ups is February 1, 2006. This date is crucial as it will determine how we will proceed from that point. Deadline for cancellations is March 2, 2006. After that date no refunds will be made for ANY reason.
