This years reunion brings us to the "Land of the Sky" and the Blue Ridge Mountains. The Blue Ridge Assembly provides us an uncompromised setting with generous, modern facilities and rustic mountain charm.

Black Mountain / Asheville Nestled in the French Broad River valley between the Blue Ridge, Great Craggies, and Black Mountains on one side and the Great Smoky Mountains on the other, the Asheville area has always been an attraction. The valley has been both gateway and crossroads since the days of the great tribes of the Eastern Band of the Cherokee. The first tourist to the area was Hernando DeSoto in 1540 and some of his rock inscriptions can still be seen today. The first settlement, "Eden Land" was not far from the reunion site. www.main.nc.us/OBCGS/ashv_hist.htm]

Notable residents of the area have included: George Vanderbilt, Thomas Wolfe, Carl Sandburg, Rev. Billy Graham, Methodist Bishop Francis Asbury as well as a host of other international notables that have left their mark. Asheville is also home to the first forestry school in the nation and is the "Cradle of Forestry" in America. The Biltmore House is George Vanderbilt's modest 145,000 acre estate and the largest private home in the country. Other attractions include the Grove Park Inn, Grove Arcade, Thomas Wolfe House, hundreds of hiking and mountain biking trails as well as whitewater paddling in every other valley. The area is gateway to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Great Smoky Mountains National Park, one of the most visited parks in the system. You will not see the lights of the Doon twinkling under the winter line but the mountains are sure to provide a backdrop to inspire the joys of reminiscing.

Back to the top YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly The assembly was founded in 1908 as a YMCA student conference center and has thrived and grown ever since. The campus is about fifteen miles from Asheville, North Carolina and encompasses 1200 acres of natural woodland reaching an altitude over 4000 feet with miles of hiking trails. Some of the buildings are more modern with air conditioning and several are wooden period structures with massive wood columns. Lee Hall has a huge sixty rocking-chair front porch with views towards Mt. Mitchell to ensure you don't nap long. The grounds feature lighted tennis courts, a full-sized gymnasium with basketball and volleyball, heated pool, playgrounds, several stores and a snack shop, 50 ft alpine tower, a climbing wall, horseshoe pits, a lake, and several large fields which are sure to be suitable for a friendly cricket match or some championship guli danda.

Festivities This years program focuses on the environment, international, national, and local, and centers around the new environmental center at Woodstock which will be where Ashton Court stands now. Dr. Anirudh Krishna of Duke University is our keynote speaker and will speak on environmental movements from a developing-nation perspective. Suzanne Turner Hanifl and Sharon Seto will talk about the plans for the new environmental center and all the new developments at Woodstock. Breakout sessions on Saturday and Sunday will address a variety of Woodstock and India related topics. The annual WOSA meeting on Saturday will highlight evolving plans for the sesquicentennial of Woodstock in 2004 among other items. As always there will be both a live and silent auction and a big khanna on Saturday night. A simple worship service is planned on Sunday morning and there is plenty of opportunity on Sunday afternoon to explore the area, try crafts, or just visit with friends.

Back to the top Accommodations The majority of the facilities we are using are conveniently located within a hundred yards of each other. There are ninety hotel-style, air-conditioned rooms with attached bath, available on a first come, first served basis. Most of the remainder of the rooms are air conditioned by nature but also have attached baths. A few of the overflow rooms are reminiscent of the rooms at Hostel or Midlands and have shared bathroom access. All of the rooms we will be using have two beds, some have two double beds and some two singles. Should you have any special needs (ground floor accommodations, special diet etc.) please be sure to make a note of it on the enclosed registration form. In order to make the reunion more affordable for families, dependent children with their own bedding, stay free but still need to pay for meals.

Meals Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served buffet style in the two large dining rooms. As always one of the main events will be the Hindustani Khanna on Saturday night. Chai will be served alongside coffee at breakfast and afternoon tea will be served every day.
