I figure we'll see what we can get for booking/lodging/activity dates first. Then we'll nail the date down. But figure first to third weekend in June most likely.

I'll have to stay in downtown Gatlinburg so the wife and daughter will be able to walk and take trollies around town while I'm out riding. We have stayed at the River Terrace in the past. It's not the nicest place but reasonable priced and in a good location.

You might want to take into account parking when choosing amoung all the large cabins in the area.

Put me down to provide sweets for the house. I will bring iced cakes and cookies.

Yes Corbs, I have to keep the wife happy. She likes Gatlinburg so she and my daughter will be there. They won't be interested in hanging at the house or riding around though. They will probably come to the show on Saturday and if we go out and eat or drink in Gatlinburg they will probably come along. My daughter will be 19 years old then so I will want to keep her as far away from the cabin as possible. I saw what happen to Kermit this year.

You the man Jeff. Thank your wife for me again for helping last year at the show!


When we do find a cabin I would like to limit it to OG's first, then open it to everyone. I think this worked out well last year.

You will want to go easy in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. We need to plan a group ride on the Tail of the Dragon and the Cherehala Skyway loop early Friday morning before the traffic gets bad. The weekends are awful but remember the fun we had that Friday drive at 2009 EECMM.

Yea Brian.

Harper or Myrtle for sure. We'll start a thread once we find a location. I'm leaving that up to Corbs and Brandon to figure out.

I think 20 people, and off the beaten path would be best again guys... Too big and it's going to be a bear to complete that 'group buy' as it was pretty tough this year lol. All worked out in the end.

Gattlinburg/Pigeon Forge have a ton of shit to do..



Tony the main problem with getting everyone paid is having to send in checks I think.  If we could setup a paypal or some sort of online paying it would be easier I think. (I understand the associated fees, take them into account.  Instead of $150 make it $160 or so..)
