We live in Hendersonville, not Brevard - but close enough for events most of the time:)

Tell us a little bit about you...

Transplanted Yankees that moved here in July - loving WNC and people here! Looking forward to "going native" ourselves:) As you can tell, we love going to Renaissance Festivals/Faires! PIC's in profile are from Georgia Renaissance Festivalthat we just attended. In October, we are planning a trip to a weekend visit to Charlotte for opening weekend of the Carolina Renaissance Festival-perhaps we can make it a "meetup event" if anyone else interested?

What do you want to get from our Meetup group?

Meeting new local friends. We've explored the Asheville environ a bit, and will enjoy finding new dining and entertainment opportunities in the Translyvania area. Looking forward to hiking (after the YMCA regimen prepares us) the many paths and waterfalls around Brevard. Also hoping to find some avid gardeners to share with us what best grows here.

Would you be open to helping us grow?

Word of mouth is always the best!

What John E. is saying about this Meetup Group

I think BC is a good fit for us:) Unlike some Meetup groups, Michael doesn't charge fees - just one of the little things that makes this group special!
