2019 Mountain Xcape
The Mountains came alive with the sound of VistaLife! Our Associates earned their way to the Great Smoky Mountains for our recent Mountain Xcape 2019 which was from November 11th through the 14th.
The winners that attended this year included Suzy & David McLaughlin, Jonas & Joan Farmwald, Bambie & Bobby Goodwin, OA & Gail Powers, Melanie & Steve Daniel, Dick & Joyce Sarvis, Bob & Kathi Lutz, Doris Fisk and guest Pam Denney.
Upon arrival at the 10 Point Buck Lodge Mountain Retreat in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, they immediately delighted in the amenities of the spacious accommodations. Hosts Drs. LeBron & Corrinna Long welcomed all and made sure everyone was well acquainted with the Grand Lodge. Following a very restful night in the soft, pampering beds they all readied for a night out of dining and entertainment.
Our Xcape winners first excursion was the special Hatfield’s & McCoy’s Dinner Theatre “Christmas Disaster” show. The dinner tempted their taste buds and they found themselves full of food and laughter by the escapades of the show.
On day two our VistaLife guests were welcomed by the most beautiful snow fall which blanketed the mountains like a well fitted sheet. The above photo, captured by Regional Director Suzy McLaughlin, fully displayed the splendor of the Norman Rockwell scene. Because of travel and possible road hazards, the crew determined to stay in for a restful time around the fireplace.
Fortunately, the snow gave way to the southern sun as the gorgeous white terrain melted away and the team again, headed for the vast playground which is Pigeon Forge.
Our gang found that Dolly Parton’s Stampede was not to be outdone and the Spectacular Christmas Show caused a standing ovation from all in attendance.
Qualifying, but unable to attend, were V.P of Sales and Marketing Jim & Pat Dungan, Abe & Becky Miller, Joseph & Laura Farmwald, Norman & Esther Wengerd, Robert & Rose Gingerich, Uria & Carol Byler, John H & Rose Miller, David & Kathy Miller, Willy & Carol Miller and Ken Cappello.
First time attenders Dick & Joyce Sarvis, Doris Fisk, Bob & Kathi Lutz and Steve & Melanie Daniel were excited and inspired by the fun-filled get-a-way! If you have not attended this earned get-a-way, consult with your Team Leader and plan to attend!
