econoNc415@yahoo.com Brian Durham, Mgr. We didn't
reserved rooms under "North Carolina Checkers" at Days Inn,
because we could not get special rates
because this is furniture market week. They want full price $129.99, so we
reserved 5 rooms (2 Queen beds) at Econo Lodge in Burlington, NC at a special

19 and 20th.
