    Albright Grove Brewing Company is located in the old Wildwood Gallery building next to River Sports Outfitter on Sutherland Avenue.  Its name was inspired by a beautiful, quiet trail in the Great Smoky Mountains.  Their brews are similar in nature to the landscape around us:  diverse, well-crafted, and imaginative.  The owner, Nick Barron has won multiple brewing awards.  He worked for Goose Island Beer company, Smoky Mountain Brewery, and even studied at the Institute of Brewing and Distilling in London.  Join your KSOC friends and enjoy the anticipation of fall coming at last!

    • Frozen Head State Park

    Join us on a hike in the Cumberland Mountains. We will park at Armes Gap on TN 116 and hike the coal haul road to the peak of Frozen Head mountain and the lookout tower. The distance is about 2.5 miles and the elevation gain is about 1180 feet. The fire tower was replaced by a very nice lookout tower with lots of room for viewing the countryside. On the way back we will take a side trail to the Brushy Mountain Correctional Complex coal mines where prisoners mined coal until sometime in the 1950s. This side trail is about .4 miles and relatively level.

    Brushy Mountain Correctional Complex opened in 1896 and closed June 11, 2009. The prison was founded as a result of the aftermath of the "Coal Creek War," an 1891 lockout of coal miners that took place in Coal Creek, now Lake City, and Briceville, after miners protested the use of unpaid convict labor in the mines.

    All of the distances and elevation changes are estimates based on a topo map. The total distance is about 5.8 miles which is a little shorter than most of our hikes.

    We will meet in the Bearden Central Baptist Church parking lot for car-pooling and leave at 8:30 am stopping in Oak Ridge at the American Museum of Science & Energy, 300 Tulane Ave, and meeting in the parking lot nearest Illinois Ave. We will leave there at 9:00 am for those who would prefer to meet there. We recommend shoes to wear to and from the hike plus sturdy hiking shoes, other weather appropriate clothing, a snack, a drink and a camera. We recommend that riders in a carpool pay the driver 5 cents for each mile. Round trip distance

    from Knoxville is 81 miles ($.05 x 81 = $4.05). From the AMSE, 43 miles ($.05 x 43 = $2.15).

    After the hike plan on stopping on the way back for a meal and refreshments. For specific information about the hike please contact Tom before November 8 th at 588-5622 or leave a message or send an email to cressler@utk.edu.

    Our Adopt-A-Stream signs have been installed at the Bridgewater Road end and midway between Bridgewater and Walker Springs Road.   This stretch of greenway sees a lot of pedestrian and bike traffic so we are getting good visibility.  Plus, the Bridgewater sign can be seen from the road.

    Directions:  I-40 west to Gallagher Road Exit, turn right.  Go past Sam’s and turn left at the second traffic light onto Walker Springs Road.  Take first left onto Kidder Lane and go to the end where there is a small parking lot.  Kidder Lane is next to Walker Springs Apartments.

    Travelling eastbound, take the Walker Springs Road exit and turn left.  Go to the end (second traffic light) and turn left.  Take next left onto Walker Springs Road (again).  Take first left onto Kidder Lane and go to the end.

    • Pre-trip extension to Lisbon – March 14-18, 2020 additional $640 - full  
    • Post – trip extension to Barcelona – March 25-28, 2020 additional $752

    These prices do not include airfare or travel insurance that will cover trip cancellation.  We have requested group air from Knoxville and estimate a price in the range of $1100 - $1300.  The cost of Travel insurance from Travel Protectors depends upon the trip options selected.  Purchasing travel insurance can be a big benefit.  Many club members have been glad that they had travel insurance when unforeseen events occurred right before some of our trips.  Compared to the price of the trip it is a small amount.

    Registration for the trip is as follows:

    1. Attached you will find the form that must be submitted with your deposit.  Please send the completed form, copy of your passport personal information page with 1st deposit  ($600.00 basic trip, additional $150.00 for each extension) to:

      Elaine Denney
      P.O. Box 30312
      Knoxville, TN 37930

    2. There are a limited number of spaces for all of the Crescent Ski Council clubs.  You are not guaranteed a space until your form, passport page, and 1st deposit is received by Holidaze.  Elaine will be responsible for getting this information to Holidaze.  Therefore, it is important to respond quickly.

    3. Your passport must be valid for 6 months beyond the end of the trip.

    4. Please pay attention to the second page of the registration form as it has very important information about travel insurance and if you choose to book your own air.

    5. KSOC dues must be current.

    6. Single rooms are on request only and cannot be guaranteed.

    Any questions or concerns please contact me.  I will be at the Happy Hour at Lakeside Tavern on Friday, July 12, 2020 with registration forms for anyone wanting to sign up at that time.  Bring your checkbook!!

    Please contact me with questions about trip price, airfare, travel insurance.  (Elaine Denney:  865-919-2307
