I have put an email into Mark Liebermann the Greenbrier Contact....
mliebermann@geoffreyweill.com

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

Hey guys, just made an account for this. I'll be there probably next weekend, the girlfriends still on vacation but I'll definitely be there for the early August practices.

So excited!

Ok, I see that we have to park at the fair grounds and buy a transportation ticket for the shuttle. Does anyone know if there is a kiosk there and you buy tickets when you get there or can we buy them in advance? What time does the first shuttle start running each day? Thanks. BDM

I'll try to give updates when possible. Hopefully it will help you all that are going later dates. And I'm sure a few others will also.

We are leaving early in the morning for the 2.5 hour drive so we have plenty of time to look around. The weather tomorrow is supposed to be really really nice. It was super hot and humid here the last few days. We had some rain come through this afternoon and it's actually cool outside now.

Who Dat!!!
