Other Activities

On Sunday, October 6th, the Tennessee Titans play the Bills @ noon. 
This is before our icebreaker.  The stadium is less than a mile walk from the HG Inn.  The game should be over by 1530.
 
On Tuesday, October 8th, the Nashville Predators play the San Jose Sharks at the Bridgestone @ 1900.
Tuesday is our company/battalion night.  You two have the Avalanche and (champion) Blues, so you know what a fun environment an NHL game is.  There is an all inclusive zone (not fancy), the Lexus Lounge with food and drinks, and regular seats.  It is always packed.  The game should be over by 2130.
 
The Grand Ole Opry is at Gaylord the 8th, as well.  The Ryman has shows (not the Opry) the 7th through 10th.
