I have put an email into Mark Liebermann the Greenbrier Contact....

I believe there might also be a golf package that you can add on as well.

The address for those looking to drive....
The Greenbrier
300 West Main Street
White Sulphur Springs, WV 24986

Reservations: 855-453-4858


For Air Travel/Hotel....
Lewisburg, WV is about 15 -20 minutes away. Although, I dont think there are any hotels outside of the Greenbrier.

You may want to consider Roanoke, VA it should be about 1.5 hours away and for people traveling on the same dates I can offer a car pool.

Beckley, WV is about 1 hour away but may be a more expensive flight

Charleston, WV is about 2 hours away

Covington ,VA is about 20-30 minutes from the Greenbrier an about 1 hour from Roanoke, VA

Greenbrier is now promoting a "Taligate with the Saints" for next Saturday.

No details beyond that, so it kind of looks like they're doing this on the fly....but would have to think that with the lack on interest in the "Experience" they should probably open this up to anyone who attends camp that day and not tie in it to a stay at the property.

Looks like I have to rearrange our Saturday and really glad we decided to stay overnight Saturday along with Friday. Had planned on the Friday afternoon and the Saturday morning practice. Now, when to fit in all the other things we wanted to do, LOL

This is really weird! I was in the middle of checking out for the wristbands and when I got to the shipping part, it wanted to charge me. I was sure the page said they don't get shipped, you have to pick them up, so I went back to the page to check and now it's giving me an error and no page is found.

Anyone else?


Edit: called them and they said there are website glitches happening so if you want to purchase now you have to pick a shipping charge and then it will get refunded later.

Well, after it glitched while in the shopping cart. Went back to start over and it didn't add the shipping this time. The price change is interesting since I already purchased mine. Didn't get a confirmation email, but have a confirmation # and the charge went through.

Any estimate on what time to get there in the morning to ensure admission? I'm from Roanoke too and only going up for Saturday's practice. Leaving at six and getting there by at least 8. Hope that's early enough.

The shuttle starts running at 7am. We had planned on being there Saturday morning until they announced the picnic for Saturday afternoon. I think an hour before should be a good time. We have no idea how many people might decide to attend. I know the bleachers hold 1500 people.
