TCNW 489: The Mayberry Meet-up 2018 Report

Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:35:02

The 6th Mayberry Meet-up was held in Mt. Airy, NC on 20-21 July 2018. The weather was amazingly cool and dry for the month of July all the way up til it rained on us at 8pm on Saturday. Even the rain couldn’t dampen the fun had by those who attended the meet-up.

This episode gives a report about what happened at the event and I hope it encourages you to go out to one Mayberry event or another to enjoy the fellowship of the Mayberry family. You will not be disappointed when you meet other folks who are fans of The Andy Griffith Show. They are the salt of the earth.

Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring “James Best.”

This past weekend was the very first Two Chairs Meet-up held at Two Chairs headquarters in Huntsville, AL. Over the course of the weekend folks were able to enjoy the company of fellow Mayberry fans, watch episodes, look through the Mayberry collection at Two Chair HQ, visit Weaver’s Department Store and so much more. It was relaxing weekend of being with friends. No conflict to deal with….it was Mayberry.

Make plans to be with us in July for the 6th Mayberry Meet-up in Mt. Airy, NC 20-22 July 2018.

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:34:23

The 5th Mayberry Meet-up was held this past weekend in Mt. Airy, NC. What is the Meet-up? It’s a group of Mayberry fans gathering together to have a relaxing weekend visit to Andy Griffith’s hometown to experience a slower pace. A visit to the Andy Griffith Museum was one option of the many things to do during the day and that included a chance to meet Betty Lynn, Mayberry’s Thelma Lou, and get her autograph.

About 70 people were part of the group who met on Friday and Saturday evenings for food, fellowship, and Mayberry fun. We shared Mayberry trivia, stories, laughter, and episodes of The Andy Griffith Show. All that was followed by a Mayberry Bible Study session on Sunday morning for those able to attend before heading home.

Bonus:  This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring Don Knotts.

TCNW 385: Mayberry Meet-up 2016

We just got home from the Mayberry Meet-up 2016 held in Mount Airy, NC the weekend of 8-9 July.  Jan and I had a great time and from the reports I heard so did the other 55 to 60 people who were able to attend.  The weather was really good for July in the south, especially on Saturday night, and the friends were first rate.

This episode is a report about the goings on and hopefully it will get you geared up to attend a Mayberry event near you.  Getting together with Mayberry people is one of the best times you can have without doing anything your mom wouldn’t want to hear about.

Here’s a link to the photos that were taken over the weekend for you to enjoy.

I’m always watching the web for information on The Andy Griffith Show and I ran across this great story from the The Daily Journal from the Kankakee Valley, IL.    I wrote to them for permission to use their article in the podcast and they were nice enough to let me use it.

The story is called “Andy Griffith’s hometown abounds with touches of Mayberry.” It gives a fun look into the town of Mt. Airy, NC and some insight into Andy Griffith’s life.

It’s also a good lead in to the next Mayberry Meet-up to be held 8-9 July 2016 in Mt. Airy!  I hope you’ll make plans to be with us and enjoy so great Mayberry related fun.  It’s a relaxing weekend of fellowship, fun, and Mayberry experiences like attending Neal Brower’s lecture on the “Andy’s Rich Girlfriend” episode of TAGS, July 9th at 2 p.m., in the Andy Griffith Museum Theatre in Mount Airy, N.C.   We’ll also be watching TAGS episodes at the gazebo at the Mayberry Motor Inn on both evenings.  Make you’re reservations at the Motor Inn now and join us for the fun.

Hello Mayberry!    Hopefully you knew about the 2015 Mayberry Meet-up that was held in Mt. Airy, NC the weekend of July 17th through the 19th because I did all I could to let folks know we were getting together for some Mayberry fun.  If you didn’t get the word, I’m certainly sorry because you missed a fun and relaxing weekend.

2015 marked the 3rd meet-up at the Mayberry Motor Inn  in Mt. Airy.  This time Jan and I arrived in Mt. Airy early on Thursday so we could start the long weekend early.  It turned out that the Newsome’s weren’t the only ones wanting to get and early start on a long weekend.

I know you’ll enjoy this report about this weekend of Mayberry fun.

I love it when listeners help me find great content for the podcast and this episode is exactly that.  Randy Bewer sent me an e-mail with a link to a story from the May 7, 1961 edition of The Milwaukee Sentinel titled,  McNear: Barber Who ‘Cuts Up’ and it was gold.

I’ve been involved with The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers Club (TAGSRWC) for going on 30 years and I had never seen nor heard about this article by United Press International writer J.A. Amant.  I hope you enjoy this little nugget even half as much as I did when I first read it.  It’s kind of like finding a lost bit of history.

You’ll also get to hear a little about the 2014 Mayberry Meet-up held in Mt. Airy in July.  A fun time was had by all and I encourage you to get out there and visit with your friends and family….turn them in the Mayberry fans if you can.

Hey Mayberry,

WOW….let me just say that we had a wonderful time in Mt. Airy, NC this past weekend!

We had 29 Mayberry fans join us for the Mayberry Meet-up!  They came from *all* over but I think Ohio was well represented (4), Tennessee (4),  Alabama (3),  Georgia (2), and the most folks were from North Carolina (16) as it should be since we were in their back yard.

Friday started off great with a visit to the Andy Griffith Museum and autographs from “Thelma Lou” herself, Ms. Betty Lynn!  Folks stood in line for hours to meet Betty and get an autograph……none were disappointed.  She posed for photos and chatted with every person in line bringing smiles and tears to each along the way.

Friday and Saturday nights were highlights of the weekend for me, just behind visiting with Betty, because those able to do so gathered in the gazebo at the Mayberry Motor Inn  (thanks Alma!) to watch episodes of The Andy Griffith Show, select video clips from Mayberry & beyond, and visit!   Just like sitting on the Taylor’s front porch, we gathered to talk and get to know one another better.  What a wonderful time we had.
