1 Suprdave 11 months ago Hey Folks! It's that time again. Another Nashville Roundup for the GDP at Hachland Hills! For those of us who have been privileged enough to be there before, you could never forget Phila Hach! She was a very unique human being! She was the Hostess and owner for years and one of the most Stellar cooks who has ever lived. Her attitude on life was infectious and she seemed to always be wearing a smile and ready to spout some words of wisdom. The history of her home and her career is a very interesting one and is certainly is worthy of the history books. She gave all of us at the Gretsch pages the utmost respect and a given amount of love, as well. She Cooked for us, served us and sang to us. She always greeted us with a smile and kept the front door step warm along with her dog or cat, usually. Sadly Phila left us to be with the good Lord a few years back. We returned once thinking that all would be nearly the same and we could still enjoy things, as they were. You really don't realize how much things can change just because of the lack of one person, but as Miss Phila would say," it just goes to show ya how important each of us are." She smiled as she piled the grits on our plates for breakfast knowing that we would all enjoy and darned if she wasn't right. She would call out "Come and get it Chillen'" and ring the dinner bell at the back of the main building and we'd all come a runnin' for Miss Phila's vittles. She would give us a hug and a word of inspiration and sit and enjoy our music. She felt like family and it was nice. So what if our return wasn't ideal. It was still Hachland Hills and the venue is nearly as special as Miss Phila was. We had our quirky things that we did and had plenty of fun doing them. Now we return with those same quirky ideas and plans and it looks like we'll be getting close to the same experience as before. Carter Hach, Phila's Grand son, is running the show now and seems to be excited about our return. I have told him that we would like to honor Phila and Hachland Hills as well as our love for all things Gretsch, at this event, so if you plan on coming and have been here before, take a minute to share an experience that you had with Miss Phila to him. Our Date is Sept 21st through Sept 24th. Three and a half days of bonding and playing and partying, of course. I will be arriving early and informed them that we would trickle in all day, as usual. There will be a Thursday night cook out, like before, with Burgers and any extras anyone may want to bring. Karolyn is going to make her Potato salad, it's great. No one is expected to bring anything. I know most of you will be traveling a good distance. The rest of the weekend we will be served by Hachland Hills and I will need to know if you will be eating with us at all meals or maybe leaving to go to town, as some like to do. The breakfast meals will be included in your room fee. If you aren't planning on staying at Hachland Hills, let us know if you'll be attending breakfast with us. We will need to know ahead of time, to add that meal to your order. I have priced everything below. Meals aren't cheap, at this event, one of the special things are the meals, and the bonding that takes place during them. The prices below reflect gratuity and tax. These aren't just normal hamburger/hot dog meals either. Check out by Noon on Sunday and if you want to hang out and say goodbye a little longer, they normally don't kick us to the curb. My thought process behind this is to rekindle the relationship that we had with Hachland Hills. It will also be nice to pay our respects to an amazing human being that helped us all along the way. If this will be your first time at Hachland, then great! We're sure you'll enjoy you should plan on excitement and relaxation and much bonding. This IS my first Rodeo so I hope I don't screw anything up.
