A New, Exciting Opportunity

N. B. from Chris Waters, Eta Treasurer:                   Unique Opportunity to Discover Biltmore
                                                                     April 21-23, 2010
If someone is coming to share your room,
                                                                  Biltmore House and Inn
the price for the room per person will be
reduced, but the luncheon/admission ticket
                                                                 Asheville, North Carolina
is still $70 per person. Work out the room
cost with your roommate, but send me $100                  Room/Double Occupancy $190.00 per
per night.                                                   night (includes taxes & gratuities)
                                                     House and Grounds Ticket $70.00 (Lunch included)

   The planned experience has been designed to allow participants a relaxing, informative and
   enjoyable experience. There are two scheduled events for Thursday: Lunch at the Deerpark
   Restaurant, and an after- hours guided tour of the House, plus ample opportunity to tour the gardens,
   enjoy one of the “behind the scenes” tours, visit the winery, and the brand new Riverfront area. To
   enhance this experience, you will stay at the Biltmore Inn which enables you to utilize the House &
   Grounds ticket for the duration of your stay. Guests of the Inn will also enjoy the shuttle service,
   access to any of the fine restaurants, and an opportunity for afternoon tea at one of the most beautiful
   locations in NC (and/or the WORLD). But, in order to make this happen, we must have
   reservation and deposits by January 20; so please contact Lynne or Chris for reservations and
   questions. We must have deposits of $70.00 for your admission ticket and $100 per night for the
   Inn to reserve your space which is limited. Let us hear from you soon.
