Because Hobbits like pi
The Hobbit, part 3
Since ALEP 2.5 and 2.75, The Hobbit part 1 & 2, was so well received by all, with Shaker Village who went out of their way for us, the theater at Brannon’s Crossing treating us like royals and the wee lads and lasses who came to Joseph-Beth Booksellers for the readings on Saturday…. Well, dare I say, “play it again, Sam” yet again? Let’s have ALEP 3.1, as it were, and do it all again this December 19-21.
The schedule is as follows:
Friday, Dec. 19, 2014
Arrival at Shaker Village
Group dinning at the group’s choosing (not a planned dinner at the Village)
If dining at the Village, you will need to call and make your own reservations.
Saturday, Dec 20, 2014
Shaker Buffet Breakfast, 8:00am
Hitting up Denny’s one more time?
Going to Brannon’s Crossing for an afternoon showing of the movie
Pot Luck Style: Snacks & Finger Foods (nothing needing utensils)
Sunday, Dec. 21, 2014
Shaker Buffet Breakfast, 8:00
Departures (pry-bar may be required)
Attendees are required to make their reservations through Ann Voris of The Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill directly at 1-800-734-5611 extension 1548 or at 1-859-734-1548 and mention you are with the ALEP group. You will not be able to reserve through the Inn at Shaker Village as the East Family Dwelling has been reserved for us. For this event, we do ask that you book your room in this building as long as there are beds available. Rooms will be assigned on a first come-first served basis. Attendees age 16 and under room for free if staying in the same room as their parents.
Should you wish to extend your stay beyond the Friday night to Sunday morning you will be able to do so with no problem, I’m sure. We strongly suggest to reserve early in that case as the rooms are blocked off for us only during the Friday night through Sunday morning period, so room space may fill up with other guests not related to the ALEP family.
Oh yeah, what’s a gathering without food!? Most thus far have opted to dine off site, so there will not be a planed group dinner at the Village on Friday night.
And since several of us will partake of the Shaker Breakfast Buffet, you can go ahead and chime in for either or both. It is easier for us to get in and out as a group with this all taken care of ahead of time. Of course, you are free to dine when/where you desire if you choose not to dine with the group.
Since we will be in Lexington for the movie, we were thinking of possibly hitting Denny’s one last time for either lunch before the movie or dinner after. If you are not interested in going to Lexington/Denny’s, then you can just join the group at Brannon’s Crossing for the movie.
After the movie, everyone is free to dine out or if you think you could be back in time for dinner at the Village (which you would be on your own for that meal). We can still have our late night pot luck/snacks Saturday evening as we relax, chat and fellowship. There will be a space you can state whether you will bring something or be willing to throw into the kitty for other foods/drinks.
Any other meals you are on your own, take this time to explore Harrodsburg.
