If the star is correctly positioned, the conference site appears to be in a place called "Young Harris, GA".

On Google Earth I see an "upscale spa & golf resort", a few restaurants and a bunch of churches.

What has Michael got in store for us ???

You're right, I thought Helen at first, but it's more north than that....should be interesting!

...upscale spa & golf resort.

 

Sounds ideal.

Hero Green's map may not be entirely drawn to scale. (Birds! What can you do!?! It's amazing they can draw at all.)

 

The Spot-Marks-The-X aligns very clearly with the very distinct bump-in on the north-east side of GA. There is no equivalent easy to identify places on the northern border. Hence I'll speculate that the north-south positioning of the spot is pretty accurate, and the east-west positioning is less so. If that's the case, the two nearest pieces of civilization are Helen (very well known) and Suches (ahh ...not so much.) 

 

The nearest likely place for a NANFA-Con I see is probably Unicoi State Park and Lodge. So that's my guess. Is there a prize?

 

Lots of waterfalls in the area. Very scenic. Also lots of protected trout waters.

 

Years ago there was a classic Forum posting/series about a multi-day excursion to north Georgia by a Gathering of Nanfans. I couldn't find it with a quick search using our website's tool, but Google knows where it is. Still a good read: NANFA Trip to Tallulah Gorge, July 2002

 

And finally: Calling Mr. Steven A. Ellis, calling Mr. Steven A. Ellis. Please see the concierge about your reservation.

Unicoi was my first guess but I also think Vogel State Park may be a possibility. But by the last map Brasstown Valley Resort and Spa is looking good.

Wow!  That trip was 15 years ago?  Seems like only yesterday, sort of

I'm glad Doug tracked that pre forum Tallulah article down. It was fun reading and remembering that adventure. I miss Steven. He was an excellent active NANFan and we shared many fine adventures. He was along on my first scouting / logistics trip to Tates Hell and the FSU Marine Lab.  He organized many GA trips and wrote eloquently of the adventures.  The last time i spoke with him was in Florida where i suspect he still lives after moving from the Peach State.
