Dec 2nd E-mail message from Keung Hui

We're a little over a week away from the Triangle Trailblazers' Dec. 10 downtown Raleigh walks and annual club lunch/membership meeting. The Oakwood walk will be at 10 a.m. The Wolfpack walk will begin at 2 p.m. Two major updates from my last email involve a last-minute RSVP lunch reminder and info on the new Mountains To the Sea books.

In between the two walks, we'll meet for lunch at noon at J. Betski's at 10 W. Franklin St. in Raleigh. J. Betski's is on the Oakwood walk route at Seaboard Station. If you plan to come but haven't RSVPd yet, please do so by sending an email by Dec. 5 to Kathy Cockrell at kathycockrell@bellsouth.net. We've gotten lunch confirmations so far from Rich and Wendy, Deb L., Cara, Heather and Jack, Frank, Gary, Jan and Derrik, Phyllis D., Knowles & Phyllis, Kathy and myself. If I’ve left anyone out, please let Kathy know.

Please arrive by 9:45 a.m. to register for the Oakwood walk. You'll have the opportunity then to also register for the Wolfpack walk. If you didn't register in the morning, please arrive by 1:45 p.m. to register for the Wolfpack walk.

Copies of the 2017 “From the Mountains to the Sea” book will be available Dec. 10 for people who have paid their club dues for next year.

HOW TO GET TO START POINT: The Capital Area Visitor Center is located at the NC Museum of History at 5 E. Edenton St. The VC is at the far end of the 1st floor, down the hall from the information desk and Gift Shop. From the west, exit onto Wade Ave. from I-40. Follow Wade as it merges into Capital Blvd., exit to the right for Peace St., then turn left on Peace to Blount St. Turn right on Blount to Edenton, turn right on Edenton, and cross Wilmington. The museum will be on the right. From the east, exit onto New Bern Ave. (exit 13-A) from I-440 (Raleigh Beltline). New Bern eventually becomes Edenton. Stay on Edenton. After crossing Wilmington, museum will be on the right. Parking is available in the government complex visitor lot behind the museum (entrance on Edenton). On weekends, state government lots are open to the public and free parking is permitted on streets.

I hope to see you in Raleigh.
