      Rules of the event:
      1. Stay on your side of the ROAD
      2. Don't out drive yourself
      3. Be courteous to all
      4. Be there or be square. We are not waiting around for stragglers. This is not fair to anyone at all.
      We will give small safety meetings before each organized run. You know, just to recap for the hardheads. Anyone going on solo runs or with a friend should do the same..
      If someone should become a Drastic scare, or blantant reckless individual, we will ask them to part from the group. If that don't work we'll froward video to the highway patrol
      We have no intentions or acceptance of ANY dangerous actions within the group.
      We DO have intentions of having a great time [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Sunday April 11th:
      ---9:30 breakfast together at the lodge
      ---10:30 drive out through the dragon for me and those who would like to follow that way. Not on the way for many.
      Place: Fontana Village We have 100 expected and reserved rooms. Tapico is still closed and we have made arrangements to keep the group together at the Fontana lodge.
      A few reminders about the area:
      -Cell service is spotty at best - do NOT plan to rely on your cell for coordination or communication. It will fail you and you will utter words that women and children should not hear.
      -Fontana Village is LARGE - we have arranged for a combo of rooms and cabins to be set aside for our group - enough to sleep over 100, as that is our estimated attendance. If we end up going higher than that with attendance, we will handle that as needed. This allotment has been set up for us with a group rate, so when you call to book your room, let them know you are with the "R32 Group 2010", as that is what is listed on the contract they provided to us. If you decide to be in a cabin, I suggest you ask to be grouped in an area with others from our group, the closer to the lodge, the better.
      Last year we were pretty spread out, but we did not really know what to expect at that location. This year we are armed with venue experience, so we can be grouped more together which makes everything easier on everyone.
      Now the deets:

      You can reach the Village for reservations by phone only, and that number is here for your convenience: 800-849-2258. They do have a website, but there is no method to reserve a room via the site. Should you wish to peruse the site, just click here...
      The rates that we were able to negotiate are a bit cheaper than last year:
      Lodge Rooms are available for $79/night. You have the choice between one King Bed or two Queen Beds in your room.
      Cabins are available in two flavors:
      Two Bedroom, One Bathroom Cabins are available for $109/night
      Three Bedroom, Two Bathroom Cabins are available for $249/night
      We set the dates for our trip based on the fact that other clubs have also begun their planning stages. At the moment we are the only group hitting the Dragon on this particular long weekend. That may change as we have no control over the plans of others... With that being the case, we cannot stress enough that the sooner you book, the better. Sooner will equal better grouping for all of us, and sooner will ensure that if we do go over our projected numbers, we will all fit at Fontana.

      ******There is a cut-off date to get the group rate. You must have your room booked by March 12, 2010*****

      So get on it folks! The time is approaching. Might as well be February. Lets face it, February is a SHORT month, so it barely counts... That puts into "almost March" time frame, which might as well be the beginning of April...

      Yeah my typing after all the effort was not so great. But that's just for the MKV forum. We spelled it right in the MKIV forum
      Seriously I will contact a Mod to edit the title, I cannot do it.

      One of the ideas we are working with is to have a Mini-car show at the ballfield. The original Idea was to have that going on while we have 2 bon-fires and do RBQ outside. All at the same time. We really want to place more focus on driving, but realize others are into different things. So, post up what interest there might be in a Mini-car show.
      I personally think it is a bit much,
      -people will have dirty cars
      -who wants to detail their car or miss a dragon run to keep it clean
      -I could be entirely wrong though, which is why we ask
      However the S2K guys pulled it off and really seemed to be having a good time at theirs

      Bon fire at night sounds cool though maybe before a night run

      ^ yes.
      a car show would eat into precious dragoning time.

      RBQ will be catered by Fontana. It's the only choice.
