      Today while driving thru the I-40 "Canyon" (Knoxville to Asheville) I dreamed up a Gumball Rally style event.

      Call it The Deliverance Triangle®? Smoky Dub Rally (kidding)? MK Fall Rally?
      Start from Fontana & go to Helen GA, back to NC and it ends at the Dragon.

      Points for time, points for pics, points for "Style", Points for best speeding ticket, Best Turbo, furthest attendee, best costume, best video? We have miles & miles of great back country roads.

      So, yes, I'm down for a GTG

      Like Franco said, [Franco rips off his rear-view mirror and throws it out of the car]

      Friday will be chill, nothing really planned. Friday is a day for those who live far away to make it up there. Figure a meet and greet in the evening, night time drives, and then drinking.

      Saturday will be a full day of events, meet and greet/ cruise at midday, show late afternoon, relax, dinner, drinking.

      Sunday will be farewell/ last drives/ drive home.

      Saturday will be the only structured day, so technically if you live close enough you do not even need a hotel. You can arrive in the morning/ early afternoon, meet everyone, go cruise, show, individual/ small group exploration, dinner, and then go home.


      None of the plans are set in stone, and they will be changed/ solidified pending a show of support.

      If this GTG does gain traction in the future we can have 2-3 days of full events, but since this is the first year we have to be realistic.

      Alright so I got off the phone with Fontana Village. Looks like the 5-7th is a no go. They only have a few cabins left, and they would be full price.

      So either we push the date back, October 19-21st anyone? Or we can do my new proposal, which I added to the first post.

      Ok sorry for the constant updates and confusion...

      Right now I have four attendees voting yes for the Helen idea.

      As chubs said, Keeps cost down, better vibe.

      I agree. We will definitely hit the Dragon though, so it isn't just a mini SoWo.

      I will call around tomorrow about lodging, but the Helendorf is a great place.

      http://www.helendorf.com/

      They have four rooms left as of Sept 11th.

      Also Oktoberfest in Helen is a lot of fun, so you could do that as well.

      Did you see the possible venue relocation? Basically everything near the Dragon is booked, which is a good and bad. For us Southerners it is fine, because North Georgia has better accommodations. For anyone coming from the north that means you have an extra 80-90 miles to drive.

      Helen, GA is an awesome "German-town" and we will be there during Oktober Fest, so we shouldn't be in short supply of fun.

      Saturday I was planning on meeting up at let's say 10am in Helen, cruising to the Dragon, riding the Dragon to the end of the twisties, pulling off by the lake for pictures and chatting. Then possibly cruising around some more, maybe another Dragon run, and then heading back down to Helen for food and drinks.

      Again please feel free everyone to make suggestions, I am not a party planner!

      I really like this idea.

      I would be down for a day of driving and I'd probably head back to Atlanta that night. I just moved down here from New England, so I am curious if this will be during the peak foliage season?

      I am in!

      Now, to get the unibrace before we go

      Yeah it should be during the peak time. Also the weather should be awesome. Average temp is 74F.

      I have been to a lot of Dragon events, Z-Days, WitW, BF.C, etc.

      What I have learned is this; the dragon is a lot of fun once. You cannot speed and there is a lot of traffic. There isn't much to do there, so when these clubs have 3-4 day meets it blows my mind, it can get awfully boring. That is why I am wanting to meet in Helen and just drive up to the Dragon instead. Yes it will be about 200 miles round trip, but it is worth having the civilization, plus the drive up there is absolutely fascinating, even for passengers. My significant other hates coming to these, because they get boring, but she loves going to SoWo, APR BBQ, and cruising up through the Mountains, especially with the windows open, fascinating colors, and a cool breeze floating in.

      ^ See what I did there, painted a picture.

      September 29th a few of us will be headed up from Columbus, Newnan, and Atlanta area to hit Helen, GA for a Day full of Beer drinking for their Oktoberfest. Maybe we will see you on the way or when you pass through.

      You're probably right. However, looking on their calendar of events it says the 42nd Annual Oktoberfest starts Today (9/13) until 10/28/12.

      Either way is fine however, we will still be going up that day,

      Sweet, the more folks the better. For this little get together is more of a just something to do, we will have a bunch of friends tag along (hopefully), and as far as VW owners go, I am only expecting 4 GTIs and 2 Jettas to be in the mix.

      As a local I would recommend several things

      1. Let Darryl know when you are coming, he may list the event on his calender and check if there will be any photographers out. ( www.Killboy.com )
      2. Come as late in the year as possible.
      3. Come as late/early in the day as possible.
      4. Watch for D-Baggers and other slow moving vehicles.
      5. Use The Pull Offs, The Trash Cans, and Common Sense.
      6. H&H Towing 865-804-0526 (Lowered Vehicle/ Euro Friendly even if he is a flappy headed Canuckistanian)

      Depending on the exact dates this will be prime slow mover season especially during daylight on a weekend, There will most likely be van/mini bus tours for foliage viewing.

      Enjoy
