It's time to continue our search for the elusive big guy (who always seems to be blurred in any photo). This year's Search for Sasquatch Run will be held in the Marion/Tazewell/Wytheville, VA area, West of Roanoke. The date for this event is Saturday the 28th of July. This area is where VA-16 is located also known as The Back of the Dragon. There are some sweet twisty roads in this area. This run will be led by 2 co-leaders, Todd Godfrey (mrbeebe) and myself, Jeff (JD) Cole (i.e., colejd) your THMMC Treasurer.

We will start from the Smyth Valley Shopping Center parking lot (outside Walmart, 1193 N. Main Street, Marion, VA). The driver's meeting will be at 9:30 with wheels up at 10:00. Lunch will be held at one of the club's favorite restaurants, Macado's (142 E. Main St., Marion, VA; http://www.macados.net/), after lunch we will continue on to the BW Country Store and Observation Tower at Big Walker (http://www.scenicbeauty-va.com/). We will then head towards I-77 where, we'll call it a day.
