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!
A Day Trip aboard a Scenicruiser to Memphis, TN, for the world’s best BBQ, Delta Blues music, Elvis Presley’s Graceland. (One Hour South of Blytheville)

Full access to the historic Greyhound Lines Terminal, with museum, motor coach memorabilia displays, and a catered meal within the depot. (details to follow)

Downtown streets near the terminal will be closed and reserved as deluxe parking spaces for participating coaches for the entire three day event. (Please RSVP for space)

Ideal photo opportunities for your coach parked beside this iconic building.

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..
