Thanks, Mike. I know the Boars Head well. I used to work for the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Charlottesville in the late '60s. Back then the Inn was out on the west edge of Charlottesville, and I drove by it regularly on my way to Green Bank. That used to be a very nice drive through the Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains. I used to time myself between Green Bank and the Staunton city limits- 60 minutes in my Ferrari 250GTE, not as fast in my '65 Pontiac GTO .
Have a great event and post a few pictures. :)
