Hello all,

Everyone is invited to attend a sampling trip to the Upper Tennessee River
Valley. The trip will take place on July 5,6, and 7. As of right now, most
of the sampling will take place in southwest Virginia, namely in Possum
Cr., Copper Cr., and Clinch River, all in Scott County, VA. We may also hit
a couple of small streams on the TN side of the line, depending on time and

Accommodations will be a rustic cabin on Possum Cr. There is no running
water or electricity, and most of us will be sleeping on the floor (there
are 2 beds, I think). There is also ample area to pitch tents, if you're so

The preliminary plan will be to meet at Bays Mtn. Park on Friday evening
for a chance to see the park and our aquariums and other exhibits. We will
then caravan to the cabin where we will spend the night. Saturday will be
spent in VA. Sunday, we may hit Horse Cr. and Reedy Cr. in Kingsport, TN.

As plans progress, I will post updates to the list. If anyone has questions
or suggestions, pass 'em along.
