OK Gang - just trying to get a handle on who's coming, when they're coming, and where they're going to be (Fontana cabin, lodge, or another site), plus any events you've signed up for. Please limit this thread to that stuff. There are other MOTD thread for other ramblings. :happy:

Blimey, Paul and Jack plan to arrive around 7pm on Thursday, and will leave Sunday AM early. We'll be in a Fontana cabin, but not sure which one yet. It'll have the Tar Heel MINIs banner on the porch and Blimey in the driveway.

I'm signed up for the Car Show on Friday afternoon and the Farewell Dinner on Saturday. May do the Dragon Parade, and will do either or both of Darness/Midnight on the Dragon.

We have plans for Welcome Dinner, Farewell Dinner, watch the Pine Derby, maybe the movie, and Parade. Our grandson and son-in-law will join us Thurs or Fri evening.

Dave - Mandy is going to be so bummed that you are not going to be there. She wanted to show you her radio controlled GP.

Remodeling a bathroom? Just rent a port-a-potty for a few days, have them drop it off in the back yard and tell the wife you have an emergency to attent to up in the mountains!

Coming! I'll be there sometime Wednesday evening, and doing the cabin thing at Fontana with my co-pilot (brother is meeting me there - not a MINI person YET!), Paleo and mini-cohort (ha ha ha ha, mini) as well as another NAM friend. I wanted to do the parade and photo; my NAM friend has also set up some white water rafting if anybody's interested!

Caravaning with the Triangle/Triad group on Thursday, ETA at Fontana ~ 7pm ...

Rib Run Friday AM, PPP (that's Paul Penny's Potluck), Beer Swap, photo on Saturday, maybe Derby car spectator, Farewell Dinner, not sure what else. If I get there in time for Bingo on Thursday night I not only intend to play, I intend to win :girl_wink:

Staying at Fontana Lodge and leaving Sunday *after* mid-morning breakfast at Deal's Gap (such fond memories from the fall!)

Reportedly I'll have the banner with me for signatures and donations, more details this weekend, but FIND ME, please, so we can continue to contribute to this cause!

It appears we are in for some afternoon and evening showers, every day. I guess it will be best to do your driving in the morning. It may limit the number of motorcycles.

What time are you leaving Pepper?

I was hoping to leave early tomorrow morning, but right now my allergies are kicking my butt so I'm probably gonna cut my losses, grab a couple Benadryl and go to bed. I've still got a few things I've got to take care of so I'm probably looking at early afternoon-ish, but that's subject to change. What time were you planning to go wheels-up?

I'm rolling about 2 PM from Charlotte, going to pick up 40 in Statesville. If we're on your route, we can caravan. Probably hit Statesville at about 2:30-2:45.

I would like to leave before lunch but I have a few things to take care of as well. Call me at 336-516-2152 later in the moring and we can discuss a plan.

Hi, we just got our MCS cabrio two weeks ago and last night I got clearance from my better half to drive down for Thursday evening through Friday afternoon! She doesn't understand my "crazy" desire to take our new joy/toy out onto some real roads and get to meet so many other MINI lovers. Anyway, with two young kids and not much chance to do stuff like this recently I don't think I can pass this adventure up! Looking forward to meeting you!

please buy a set of walkie talkies and set them to 20/20 and find us while you're there. They need to have sub channels or privacy codes.

Awesome!

I have been wanting to get some good shots at the "Gravity Cavity" on Saturday. Is there a place to pull off the side of the road safely? If not I will have my friend drop me off and let him go through a couple times to get some shots of Small Fry. Whoever is still up Friday night when I get there we can all figure out a time and try to get a shot of every car attending from THMMC. :ms_thumbsup:

Hey Scott!

Glad to have you .. if you get this in time, just as an FYI, there is a Triangle contingent leaving Southpoint Mall about 1:15 on Thursday, should put us by the CH exit about 1:30 if that's about when you are heading out and you'd like to caravan ... we'll be picking up Twister Mark in W/S ..

If we don't catch you enroute, we'll see you there .. hopefully you can stay for some dinner etc. Friday night at Paul's cabin ..
