We're gauging interest in a Spring Dragon Run Meet. We want to include everyone but will concentrate on NC, SC, TN, GA.

Where: The Dragon - Deal's Gap, NC
What: 318 curves in 11 miles and Cherohala Skyway cruise

As far as I know right now, either one; but I think the April date is a better chance of nicer weather, especially for verts

I didn't vote in the poll, because I will not be back in time for either date. However; I agree with Lisa (did I just say that).... April would be better date for me, especially if we want to make this a annual event.

April sounds like Dragon Time

Sounds like "Big Fun", ...... any idea on what the route would be, down the Dragon, up the Dragon, .......... where do you usually start?

Don't know yet Jim, we're trying to figure out where would be the best place to eat and then go from there.

We're in !

April 24th works best for me. I'll be getting back from Dallas that week in March. With that said though, I'll be able to make either date and will go with the groups vote. The Georgia Chapter will make an attempt to meet in Atlanta somewhere convenient to all and make the cruise together.

Learn more about this event by going here: www.tailofthedragon.com. it looks like the YMR will be there that weekend as we did not know that but it may be more fun. I think the only problem I might see is that they are running the dragon on Friday and we planned to run it on Saturday.

I'm assuming everyone wants to run it on Saturday, yes?

This could be an overnighter or just a day trip. What do others of you think? Day trip or overnighter?

count me in also. Its a pretty good trip so a over night stay may be necessary. With that said it is manditory to find lodging before going to Robbinsville. There is only a few places to stay.

Spring Dragon Run...April 23-24

Here is the schedule the Yellow Mustang Registry will follow for Fri-Sat. Friday 8AM meet at The Inn at Christmas Place (Pigeon Forge), cruise Wears Valley to Townsend then up to the Foothills Parkway, cruise over to US129, hit the Dragon with a stop at Deal's Gap for bathroom-t shirts or whatever-cool down,then cruise over to Cherokee, NC for lunch (at this point Pizza Inn). Then head back over the Smokies via 441 to Gatlinburg and on into Pigeon Forge.

Saturday, The Diner will have their first cruise-in of the year (on Hwy 66, Sevierville) and the YMR will be there from Noon-6PMish. There will be trophies, games, music and discounts of food (10%) with free drink refills all show.

I have talked to event planners for YMR and any & all from SCMC are cordially invited to join in either event or both.

I would not have minded leading the Dragon run for the SCMC on Saturday, but was already committed to the YMR's schedule before the SCMC came up with the idea to run on April 24th. Hope to see ya'll there!

I don't see us following the YMR schedule as most of us have to work and just planned for a Saturday Dragon Run trip. By following their schedule, we'd have to be there on Thursday for a Friday morning cruise and that's not going to work for me and probably others too.

I'll see if SVT Madman can lead us through on Saturday?? We might be able to catch the tail end of the "Diner" cruise-in and meet up then.

I agree on the overnighter for at least Saturday/Sunday but that would be up to those that are attending. Prices of the Inn at Christmas place run from $129.00 a night to $299.00 a night depending on which room you choose. My boss would like to stay there but it is pricey. What do others think??

You might want to consider something like Holiday Inn Pigeon Forge (865-428-2700 - http://www.4lodging.com/PGFTN/). I haven't stayed there, but it has a 3-star rating and is pretty well recommended. Without even checking out group rates, Apr 24 - 25 is going for $77. for 2 Doubles and $86. for a King. There are two pancake restaurants right there and it's only three lights from the turn to Wears Valley.
