Hello all, Suzy and I have decided to attend. Will get there on Thursday--could be late in the evening. Never been to one of these. Sounds like fun. Like Dan Masters, we will not have a British V8 but will bring the HOT ROD CHRYSLER 300. See ya soon. Can I pay whoever when I get there? Or should I send a check?
Jim and Suzy Johanski

Hey, Jim - glad you both can make it! You can either send Jim Watson a check at the address above or pay when you get here.

That makes 22 so far. Anyone else?

Mickey

It appears our British V8 Group does not discriminate. I drove my Toy Camry to the Meet in Wytheville. I suspect you could even fly in and rent a car and be welcome. Our Group is a friendly bunch of men and women. Wives enjoy visiting with their counterparts when we gather. Glad you will attend. Have a Dickel Good Time!

Folks -
The gathering is in a couple of weeks. I'm looking forward to seeing y'all again.

Though we don't plan any activities, other than the Friday night cookout, here are a couple of drives to consider:

One is the new portion of the Foothills Parkway that connects Hwy. 321 near Walland/Townsend to Wear's Valley Rd. There is a drive from there back to Walland that has some nice scenery. And, of course, you can take Foothills Pkwy. over to the Tail of the Dragon and have your picture made while demonstrating your/your car's prowess. ;-)

The other is a drive I'd never known of before, but was recently posted by one of the local clubs. It's called the Devil's Triangle (also known as the Little Dragon), and here's a club member's description:

"This is a 44-45 mile trip through some seriously twisty and fun mountain roads. 'They' (the highway department) have fixed/paved the washouts so it is fun running now! It runs on Hwys 116, 330, and 62, and passes by Brushy Mountain Prison. It does have 3 MAJOR 180 degree switch-backs that go uphill, and many other consecutive curves, the kind of road that sports cars were made for!!"

Here is a MAP (link) of the triangle:

So, a couple of suggestions for ya. See ya soon!

Mickey

"Will the Roadmaster be there?"

Seriously highly doubt it. Rick currently has it in Illinois. It will be a 1000 mile round trip for Rick & Jean for a 3 day weekend getaway in Townsend, TN.
