The Smoky Mountain Chapter was formed in July 1998, with an annual meeting combined with a weekend social function. Our first Spring Fling of the Smoky Mountain Chapter was hosted by Dave and Peg Fiehtner of Maryville, Tennessee. The Fling was held in Alcoa/Knoxville, Tennessee on 16 and 17 April 1999. Lodging was at the Hampton Inn (Knoxville Airport) at a cost of $62 per night and 34 folks attended. There was a sit-down dinner at the Green Meadow Country Club in Alcoa.
The Smoky Mountain Chapter covers the region centered in Knoxville within approximately a 200 mile radius. This region touches eight states, and is bounded on the West by Nashville; South by Huntsville, Atlanta and Greenville; East by Asheville, Charlotte and Roanoke; and on the North by Charleston and Lexington, while not infringing on the existing Chapters of Pensacola-Gulf Coast, Florida, Tarheel, and Virginia-Tidewater.
