Being unsure of how large VCA is compared to VOA (after the whatever reason split happened)...is it feasible to have a separate Tail Of The Dragon event for VCA members this year?:dunno:

I just rejoined VCA after a few years hiatus - hence my question. Since i live close to the TOtD and the locations visited by this event, i would be happy to assist in organizing. Please respond to this, if there is interest. Or if I have missed this as an Event planning already in progress (I searched but didn't see it) please let me know.
Slither On!

I'd be interested and would love to see something get set up as would others.

Sounds good - we'll probably have a firm date for the T.O.D. event this year - i am assuming that it may fall sometime close or during the time you will be here. Will be happy to share routes!

Get to know your backroads for possible September 2016 T.O.D. drives with this general map:

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Tail+of+the+Dragon/@35.4742854,-83.9330097,14z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0000000000000000:0xef30959d45b92ec2!8m2!3d35.466717!4d-83.9202529

https://www.google.com/maps/@35.6973624,-84.0448931,20z

https://www.google.com/maps/@35.3587224,-83.3678606,10z

https://www.google.com/maps/@35.727369,-83.5682284,12z

https://www.google.com/maps/@35.6738856,-83.7594369,14z

The above give you some area maps to start drilling down into to see where you are. The roads of note are:
321, 411, 72, 129 (T.O.D.) , 74, 28, 441, Cherohala Skyway (165/143) and of course I40E/W
Study the maps and let me know what your approaches will be (from where you will be coming in from).

We are thinking of Sept 16-19, and staying in the Townsend area.

This is the thread - we need to start a 'who is expecting to come list'. The tentative date will be the 16-18 of September.
Any takers?
