Tail of The Dragon/Smoky Mountain

Anyone up for a get together in the first part of July to drive the roads of Tenn/NC? If not there maybe Hot Springs or Eureka Springs Ar?
Let me know and maybe we can make a long weekend of it and enjoy our cars the way they were meant to be!!

Not in July, but maybe some time in Sept? (maybe August if I don't go to LOG).

If things don't work out for June then September might work if I do not go to Black Tie in Florida. I will be at work in August so that is out for me.

Black Tie used to be The Crescent Classic Rally held in Eureka Springs Arkansas for the past 10 years. It is a gathering of all types of Exotic Cars, mostly Ferrari, but anything is welcome. They are starting a new one called Black Tie Rally which will be held in Destin Florida and is put on by Black Tie Motorsports, this will be the first year. If you Google it you can find out all the information. The Wife and myself have gone several times when it was held in Eureka Springs and it was a blast. Each day they have a road corse maped out that you drive and end up at a place to eat. Trust me when I say there is nothing like hearing the sounds of Exotic Cars bounce off the walls on mountain roads and up from valleys, it is intoxicating.

If we do not go to the Black Tie then the Dragon sounds good and I can take the wife to the beach this time home.
Maybe we could get a group to travel to the Black Tie Rally. You guys and gals just let me know what you are up for.

Thanks

I'd be in for Eureka Springs. I've been wanting to plan a trip there for the wife and I in the Lotus anyway. We should have a big southeast LT meet up at Eureka Springs!

Only thing about July, it'll probably be pretty hot. I say we start planning a big Lotus meet in September! Thoughts?

That sounds great, now that the Crescent Rally is no more as of last year, they might work something out for us. The owner of the Crescent Hotel is great, her name is Elise and she owns one also. I am sure if someone wanted to call her she would work us out some good rates and it is a great place to stay. There is a lot to do all around that area and you are only about 1hr away from Branson. I would be glad to help but with the way I work could not every year. The name of the place is The Crescent Hotel and the phone number is 1-800-342-9766 and tell them you would like to talk with Elise Roenigk, the owner. I bet she would love to host a Lotus get together.

If I were home I would call myself and set something up.

I say we do this. September is ways away, and gives everyone more than enough time to plan. We need to pick a date. I'd probably end up driving down on a Friday afternoon, staying Friday and Saturday, then leave Sunday morning.

That MAY work for me, that will either be my last weekend home or at work for one week. If I am not a work, I Will Be There. Also that is the week before Bikes, Blues and BBQ so the motorcycle traffic should not be that bad.

The reason I can't say for sure is because we are taking the ship to the Canary Islands and not sure when I will be home this time, just know is should be around the 25th.

I am 99% sure I could make it the weekend of September 11-13. But don't let my work schedule keep anyone from going.
Thanks

That could work for me. Need to gain some interest from people in this. I know there are some people around that area and within an hour or 2 drive of it.

Going to start a new thread on this with the dates and we will see. I can call Elise when I get home and see if she could work out good rates for us and maybe a package for the wives that come. Now let's see if we can get a good group and go drive some twisties! !!

I know this thread is really old - but ya'll want to set up an event this year? I go to Zdayz every year (zdayz.com) May 19-22, and there is another OG Zdayz guy with an 06 Exige. It would be cool to get a group of Loti there that weekend since there are already two going and it's a small group. However, if it's another weekend later in the year that works too - I'm only a few hours away. Here is from our last trip. The roads there are about as perfect as it gets for these cars.
