We have arranged for a charter bus to pick up interested participants for a FREE ride to Downtown Nashville for Dinner & Entertainment. If you are interested in participating, simply be in the Lobby of the Cool Springs Marriott ready to depart at 6:15pm, the shuttle will leave at 6:30pm. All passengers may also choose to ride back to the Cool Springs Marriott for free and leave from an arranged pick up site Downtown at 10:00pm. We hope to see you there!
