Three Club Foray (AMC/MCG/SCUMS)

Blue Ridge Assembly
Weatherford Hall
84 Blue Ridge Cir, Black Mountain, NC 28711

You must be a member in current standing with one of the three clubs to register and attend the Black Mountain Foray. 

We have 39 rooms, each with 2 beds (1 single and 1 double bed). Each room has its own bathroom with tile shower.  You are responsible for obtaining your own roommate.

We can help people connect but we cannot assign roommates for folks. Rooms will be assigned when you arrive at the foray. Weatherford Hall, where we will be staying, has three floors with the second floor being on the Ground level. The building does not have an elevator.

Please indicate if you want the Ground level. Ground-level rooms will be distributed on a first-come first-served basis; we cannot guarantee no stairs. The building has heat only (no air conditioning), handicapped parking, hallway phones, fireplace, large deck and drinking fountain on each floor.

The following are not permitted on YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly property: pets, camping, firearms and all weapons, tobacco use, candles, incense and decorative lighting.

These are a few campgrounds nearby. Please note that we are just providing the names, we have not visited them. If you camp, you need to register as a Commuter. Nearby campground options include the Asheville East KOA in Swannanoa and the Montreat Family Campground in Montreat. Additionally, Curtis Creek and Lake Powhatan are each National Forest campgrounds about 35 min away.

Please note: You do not have to make a PayPal account to register. Click the "Pay with Debit or Credit Card " bar (it's under the blue Log In bar). 

Full registration fee will be refunded up to 30 days before the foray (August 7, is the last cancel day for full refund).

50% of registration fee* will be refunded up to 7 days before the foray (August 30, is the last cancel day for 50% refund).  

No refunds* less than 7 days before the foray.

*Upon request, we will be happy to send a donation letter from AMC/MCG/SCUMS acknowledging all canceled event registration fees as a tax-deductible donation under the organization’s designation by the U.S. Federal Government as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

Food is on your own, there will be no food service this weekend.  Everyone is responsible for their own meals. A kitchen in Weatherford Hall will be available for preparing food. It has eating/cooking supplies for up to 80 people, including two refrigerators, a stove, and oven. In addition coolers will be available as well as extra burners. You will be sharing this space so plan accordingly. Please remember to label your food if you will be storing it in a kitchen refrigerator.
