I will update this thread in the coming months with new info, stay tuned!

It's that time again folks, time to get ready for the annual dragon meet. Last year we had a total of 28 CR-Z's show up and even one all the way from Canada! 2016 will be the biggest year so if you have missed the prior 3 years, please don't miss this one!

Recap threads from previous years:

Where: US 129/The Dragon/Deals Gap

When: July 22nd - July 25th 2016.

Lodging: Fontana Dam Village Resort. I have 5 cabins and 5 lodge rooms reserved for a special group rate. When those cabins/rooms become available to me (A few months prior to the meet usually) I will notify everyone.

Also there is ZERO cell reception within 10-20 miles of the resort. The lodge has free WIFI and minor cell phone service for people with verizon. That in mind please have a walkie talkie so all of us can keep in contact. We will be on channel 8 subchannel 1 like last year.

Current cabin lodging list:



Arrival day for most people. Check in for the rooms/cabins are 4PM. We will get settled into the cabins, have some dinner and chit chat. Bonfire later on at night and beer exchange. Please bring a 6 pack (or more) of some local beers where you live and we will throw them in a cooler and try some new beers


Group Photo at the bottom of the dam. Be there no later than 9:30 please. Photo shoot will be at 10am but we will need time to set up.

Bonfire at night


We will do a big scenic group drive through the skyway/cherahola mtns. This trip will take around 3-4 hours.

Well do a movie night by the cabins. We will have a projector and a bunch of movies.


Early morning dragon run for those who want to participate. Pack up and check out by 11am

About the Where:
The Dragon is a stretch of Hwy 129 going through the great smokey mountains of NC and TN. Its a very popular twisty road for motorcycles and car clubs to drive through. People from all over the world come here every year to drive these roads and I've heard there aren't many roads that can compare to US129. All of you who take a lot of pics will especially love it because they're professional photographers on a majority of the twisty turns taking pictures. I've been going to the dragon for the last 6 years and always have a blast every time I go.

About the Lodging:
I've stayed at Fontana dam village the last 6 years and its a very nice place. They have lots of fun recreational things to do (Hiking, Disc Golf, Putt Putt, Lazy River). They have a bunch of different cabins and lodge rooms. If you want your own privacy you can get a Lodge room from around $99 and up and if you don't mind staying with a few others then Cabins are generally $179 and up.

I encourage anyone and everyone who loves to drive, young/old, girl/guy, whoever to make it out this year. We had a very diverse crowd in 2015, so everyone and anyone is welcome to join this year.

Wouldn't you want to have 2 days to drive back too?

Just requested 21,22, and 25 off. I'll break up my driving into two days again this year, especially since I don't know if my BF will be able to take the days off
We're planning to leave Thursday night (21st) at around 8pm and drive straight through and arrive sometime Friday morning around 8-9am. 2 drivers in 1 car has its perks! :vtec:
