SE Fan Gathering in Nashville October 28-30!!

Postby tardistraveler » Mon Aug 15, 2005 5:50 pm

N2/Amy - feel free to move this thread if I've picked the wrong forum.

Just wanted to invite folks to join us in Nashville the weekend of October 28-30 for a fan gathering!

It's being sponsored by the Yes Fans Southeast Chapter - you can check out our site at:



There's some pics there of our gathering in Atlanta last fall - we had a blast then!

Any fans of Yes are certainly welcome - this is not a site-specific gathering. We anticipate many people attending from the various Yes sites, as well as some Nashville locals.

The gathering will begin Friday afternoon/evening October 28. We will have a suite or other meeting room with an ongoing party as people arrive. This will be our time to share any weeds and other goodies, listen to some good music, and just relax and visit with each other.

Saturday plans are in the works - we're looking at possible live music, some sightseeing, clubs, etc.

We're looking at getting a suite to use as "Party Central", which would have 1 or 2 bedrooms, depening on interest. If anyone is interested in staying in the suite, and helping with the cost, please let me know. I'm interested, and I know of 2 others at the moment. We can use the living room for the Friday night party, gather there on Saturday/Sunday mornings for breakfast and to plan the day, and for "after carousing" activities Saturday night!

Nolan is working out the hotel details, and we'll post as soon as we know. For those of you who may be flying in, please PM me with your flight number and arrival time, and one of us Nashville folks will pick you up!

I'm very excited that this is happening - I've wanted to do this kind of thing here in Nashville for a LONG time! I hope y'all can come and experience our Southern hospitality! We might even have grits . . . ;)

Yes to both questions.

Some are bringing spouses, some kids, some both, some are coming alone - we have all kinds!

We're talking about perhaps setting up someone's room as "Kid Central" with videos, etc. so they can have some kid fun while we party too!

Anyone interested in attending who has kids coming, post and let us know that too, so we can plan appropriate activities!

Nolan's currently working out the details for the group rates with his reservations contact, and I'm sure he'll post for all to see as soon as they're available!

Nolan, thanks SO much for dealing with the hotel aspect of this gathering! :)

It's Official!

Postby tardistraveler » Fri Aug 26, 2005 7:21 pm

The gathering will be at the Music City Sheraton hotel - close to the airport, and convenient to other area attractions. There's free shuttle service from the airport to the hotel as well, if needed. I'll be in touch with everyone who's flying in about transportation arrangments.



Reservations: 1-800-325-3535 615-885-2200

When calling to make reservations, just tell them you're with the Yes fans group, and give them the dates, and you will receive the room rate of $79. We have a block of rooms reserved with 2 double beds.

We originally were looking at downtown hotels, but realized that we'd been trumped by a much LARGER music group, the International Bluegrass Musicians Association, who is having their annual convention, awards ceremony, and fan gathering that same week - check it out at:



So, if anyone's interested in bluegrass music, it's a GREAT week to come to Nashville!

And if you're interested in the music OUR folks can make, we have the "Close to the Edgewood" Room scheduled for our Saturday night entertainment! It's "close to the edge" of the hotel - away from all the guest rooms, so we can rock to our heart's content! No pyrotechnics though . . . ;)

We're still working on an itinerary for other activities - will post more as we know more!

The Sheraton is also close to several other hotels, if you prefer to stay elsewhere or have points to use, etc. - the Airport Mariott, La Quinta Airport, Holiday Inn Select Airport, and Embassy Suites Airport are all close by, and since we're an official Sheraton function, their shuttle would come pick you up for the festivities. If you're looking at other hotels, be sure and reserve the one near the Airport/Donelson/Elm Hill Pike area.

MUCH thanks to Nolan for setting this up for us . . . :)

This just gets more real all the time - having a site finalized is getting me excited!

More to come as we make further arrangements. And post HERE when you make your room reservations and let us know!

AND - Donations Needed for the "Close to the" Edgewood Room

Postby tardistraveler » Wed Aug 31, 2005 5:29 pm

Our Saturday night party will be in the "Close to the" Edgewood Room, to allow for our musically talented folks to entertain us! The cost of the meeting room will be $250 - just found out this morning that the hotel WILL need payment in advance - probably within a week or so.

So, we're asking gathering participants to donate toward the cause as they can. The room will allow all our musical friends to entertain us way into the night on Saturday during the gathering! We'll have munchies and some bar setups there too, and perhaps some door prizes . . . ;)

A splendid time is guaranteed for all . . . :D

Suggested donation is $15 per participant - more is appreciated, less is OK, just please do what you can to help defray this cost and make our "Jam Session" a success!

So, if you're attending, PM me, and I'll send you a mailing address - thanks so much for your help!

This is going to be great fun!

I've just worked out the details for Saturday night dinner and Sunday brunch. I HOPE everyone will approve . . . these are excellent restaurants that can accommodate our large group!

Saturday dinner at Ellendale's - located in an old house just down the street from the Hampton Inn, and very close to the Music City Sheraton, this restaurant features a varied, elegant menu with gourmet/veggie/kid options, and a wine list that I think even Arlene and Chef will approve of! We will have a private dining room for our group. Check out the menu at



Sunday champagne brunch at the 101st Airborne - An atmospheric place reminiscent of the WWII 40's era, the Sunday brunch is spectacular! The buffet features numerous breakfast/lunch entrees and veggies, an excellent salad bar/cheese/bread/fruit spread, made-to-order omelets, and a dessert bar to die for! The beer cheese soup is available by request too, and is highly recommended. Champagne will be served after 12:00 noon, and once again we will have a private dining area for the group. And it's adjacent to the airport - you can see the planes taking off and landing - so those with afternoon flights can get there quickly right after lunch!

They don't seem to have a web site, but here's Fodor's review. I've personally eaten brunch there many times, and I've NEVER been disappointed - the service has always been attentive and the food tasty!




Just thought I'd whet everyone's appetites a bit, and maybe get a few more into that "Definite" column . . . ;)
