Enjoy meeting other members and experience some incredible driving in groups around the Smokey Mountains.
This get-together (GTG) is for drivers of all skill levels and driving interests.
Route leaders will be taking individual groups on daily routes that vary from a relaxing drive in the mountains, to those that might make some passengers (and even DRIVERS) hold on tight.

IF you have never been to the Dragon or if you have not been to the Dragon in a few years, please review these thread:

If distance to this event is a problem consider flying into Knoxville and renting a car
It's only about a 75 minute drive to the Lodge where we all stay
There is always a passenger seat open for you to ride along in a Crossfire and enjoy the fun

This event is not to be missed I assure you
CLICK > McGhee Tyson Airport









Hope to see ya there !!!



JUST FYI, our general channel this year is Channel 7 - no subcode or subcode 00.
We will use this channel for the run to the BBQ and for general calling when at the lodge.

Each run will use a channel assigned by the leader, probably defaulting to Channel 7 but that's up to the leader.

Mine is as exciting as my first one.

On THAT note - I'd promised that I'd not push this car like I did the Graphite. BUT, leading Thorn and his son thru the Dragon on Sunday Morning sure blew that promise.......
