Default Dragon Subaru Meet 11/26-11/28

Ok, the other thread has gotten confusing what with multiple weekends being discussed, and GreenMarineSVX's contributions...

Here are the details:

The Tail of the Dragon is a mystical beast that if you believe recent threads, is quite over-hyped. Be that as it may, the tail happens to be situated in some of the finest driving/tourism country around. So, while "the Dragon" does refer to the particular portion of highway 129 that crosses the North Carolina and Tennessee borders, for most of us "going to the dragon" it is more about getting together to hang out and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

For more information about the actual tail, read: http://www.tailofthedragon.com

Room is provided for a fee by the Microtel in Robbinsville. Directions are available on the website below. This hotel is extremely close to the tail. I will try to call them tomorrow and see if I can get a discounted rate.

http://www.microtelrobbinsville.com/

People will be arriving throughout the day on Friday. I suggest we meet in the hotel lobby or outside the hotel Friday around 6pm. This will be the meet and greet and we can decide where to go for the evening meal.

By Saturday morning everyone should have arrived. From then on out we just wing it. Again, I suggest meeting in the morning around 9am. If I end up going I will leave information with the front desk clerk so late comers can ask for me by name. If I don't go, you guys are on your own.

Oh, and everyone bring a FRS radio tuned to..... Random number here... channel 6.

If anybody wants a drunken subie bash Friday/Saturday night, buy the beer before you cross into the enhanced bible belt. And no mexican restaurants that Porter recommends for supper.

----

For the Orlando crew:
Details for the Orlando People
Departing Nov 26th @ ~ 7AM
Taking I-75 via Atlanta
Arrive Robbinsville NC Microtel Nov 26 @ ~5PM
Saturday Nov 27th All Day Play
Sunday 28th Check out of Microtel, Goodbyes, and Depart for Home

----

For the Birmingham crew:

I don't know - I won't be there.

----

For the Atlanta crew:

I don't know - just come.

----

For the South Carolina crew:

I will be coming up the usual route - 28 to 64, probably. If you're interested in meeting up somewhere along the way, let me know. I'll probably leave Aiken sometime before noon.

----

Note: By my posting this I am not accepting responsibility for anybody who decides to come up that weekend (or any other). I'm just trying to help with getting everyone together for a FUN event. I AM NOT THE OFFICIAL ORGANIZER!

I am looking for someone to split a hotel room with. If I can't find someone I will not be going. Post up if you'll have room.

Also, post up if you are going to be there, and how certain you are.

I'm going to try and get off work the night of the 27th so I can come out that day and have fun all day. I'm fairly certain that I will be able to. + I should definitely have my car back by then.

I'll be there friday afternoon in my black ts. looks like the wife is coming too, so we'll probably get a room and hang out saturday as well.
68 is a great rd. but would most likely be an all day drive from Robbinsville. I'm game for it if any one else is though.

Chad

FYI Just called the microtel to get a reservation, it was only $50 a night for a single, not the $60 they show on their website. So come on everybody, get'em while there hot.

Default Fyi...

Just a word to the wise guys...

You guys take it easy up there on the roads around the dragon. I was there last weekend with a couple of buddies and we saw TONS of tickets get handed out on NC 28 by county stuff (Silver no light bar but marked on the sides, i believe). I did see one trooper on 28 who had someone pulled too.

TN guys were out in their black unmarked on TN side past the overlook. They seemed to stay in that area quit a bit. As always very heavy out by the lake after the dragon on TN side. I believe I saw something on the skyway too but he wasn't clocking anything or at least he didnt clock us...

Anyways cops seem to be out and I saw lots of ticket being given. Just wanted to give y'all a heads up even though i don't come around much anymore. I will say this though, going in Nov is SO much better than going in June or July. Hardly any sport bikes last weekend and most of the 'traffic' seemed like locals.

Hey I am going to try to be there if I can. This sounds cool. I used to go to events like this all the time with my S2000. I have been up there with the STi and my co-driver. The STi is a monster up there. The only thing it really needs is a little suspension work and wider tires.
