Post by: pd4501-771 on October 05, 2011, 08:03:33 PM
A historic exhibition of antique coaches & motor home conversions open to all makes/models up to 1980. Event will be held at the former Greyhound Terminal at 109 North 5th Street Blytheville, Arkansas. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it is but one of a few of its kind still in existence. Built in 1939, the building has been totally restored to become a local tourist information center and headquarters for “Main Street Blytheville.”

Mark your calendars for fun with the entire family!

This is too close to pass up.....
(depending on what gigs I have)

I expect that by April our regular Friday gig in Memphis will be an outside gig.
Ill try to remember to post on FB BNO the gigs booked for that weekend just in case some of you want to hear some great Memphis Country pickin...

Or if the sponsors of the Blytheville event want to book us as entertainment that would be great also. (then I would be sure to attend)
We are self contained, all we need is an open space to set up and some good power.

 Are most people staying overnight at the depot? I am thinking I may stay at a place with hook-ups and bring the bus over each day..
