The Appalachian Region has two driving events scheduled for the this week. With weather being the determining factor:

  • The Tail of the Dragon Treffen Pre-drive scheduled for this Friday is cancelled. (Predicted 90% chance of showers in the Fontana Dam area on Friday.)
  • The Penland School of Crafts Treffen Pre-drive scheduled for Saturday is still a 'go'. (Predicted 50% chance of PM showers in the Asheville area.) The departure point is the Burger King at Innsbrook Mall, 85 Tunnel Road, Asheville; please arrive by 7:15am. If you wish to participate and have not RSVP'ed, please do so today to with number of participants.

The Tail of the Dragon Pre-drive is rescheduled for Friday, June 9th, 7:00am, same departure point. Request for RSVP will be made nearer to the event time.

Also Treffen Asheville registration opens May 24th at 3:00pm EDT (three weeks from today). If you plan to participate in all TA activities, you must register (no special allowance is made for general Appalachian Region membership). Non-registrant Treffen Asheville volunteers will be allowed to participate in assigned activities only.

I apologize for any inconvenience caused by cancelling the Tail pre-drive.
