May 5-7

The Nashville Chapter extends an invitation to all TOS members across the state to attend the 2006 Annual Meeting, to be held May 5-7. We welcome you to Music City to enjoy the Sights and Sounds of Spring.

The meeting will be headquartered at the Steeplechase Inn located at 5581 Franklin Pike Circle in Brentwood TN, off I-65 at Exit 74-A. The hotel is holding rooms for TOS members through April 10, 2006. Mention your TOS membership for the special rate of $55.00, plus tax, per night for a room or $75.99, plus tax, for a suite (the suite has a separate bedroom and a living room with a sleeper sofa, great bargain for a small group of friends or two couples). Also included is a Deluxe Complimentary Breakfast. Members are encouraged to make reservations well in advance.

Alternate lodging choices at Exit 74-A include: Holiday Inn 615-373-2600, Comfort Inn 615-221-5001, and Hampton Inn 615-373-2212.

Registration will be held Friday evening, May 5, from 5:30-8:30 P.M. in Suite 401 at the Steeplechase Inn and from 6:30-7:00 A.M. on Saturday. Field trips will depart from the Steeplechase Inn parking lot on Saturday and Sunday mornings at 7:00.

The TOS Board Meeting and the Saturday evening banquet will take place at the Ed Jones Auditorium, Ellington Agricultural Center, just a few miles from the hotel.

The registration fee for the weekend event will be $20.00. The Saturday evening buffet supper will include barbeque pork and chicken and cost $15.00 per person. Please notify Amy Potter (see below) if you are interested in a vegetarian option. Registration and dinner payments must be received by April 15. Send checks to: Amy Potter, 616 Indian Ridge Drive Nashville TN 37221.

Our speaker will be award winning nature photographer, speaker, writer, and educator Bobby Harrison. Currently he is associate professor and director of the Art Program at Oakwood College in Huntsville, Alabama. His articles and photographs have appeared in many calendars and magazines. Since February 2004 Mr. Harrison has been engaged in the on-going Ivory-billed Woodpecker research project in eastern Arkansas.

Field trips Saturday will include the locales you have grown to know and love in the Nashville area such as Radnor Lake State Natural Area, Shelby Bottoms and Beaman Park, a new 1,200 acre Metro/Davidson County park. Sunday will provide an opportunity to check these areas again, and explore others.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in Nashville in the Spring,
Susan Hollyday, President, Nashville Chapter TOS.

MAY 5 - 7, 2006
