Summer dragon meet
#1134572 - 12/29/05 05:15 AM

In true SE-CEG fashion, starting to plan early. Would anyone be up for a summer meet at the dragon? I would like to go during the week to avoid weekend crowds. I also plan to go once school is out because I have some edumacated friends that may come. So any certain week after May 7th that would be preferable to ya'll? I should have a week of vacation time I can take, otherwise, I'll just quit.

My family is up for a meet. How 'bout Memorial Day weekend May 26th thru the 29th? Check the Dragon site for other events/meets to make sure it won't be too crowded.

That could work. There's nothing scheduled yet for that weekend.

Sorry for the ignorance, where is the 'Dragon'?

I may be in on this meet depending on the distance. I can bring some of the NC ppl as well.

US 129 between NC and TN. 11 miles with no driveways or intersecting roads, and 318 turns. Loads of fun & you can really push your car. Just be sure your brakes are in top shape.

All the surrounding roads are awesome as well.

Definitely make sure your car is ready for it (decent tires and brakes). When we went in October, adam's 300zx brake fluid was crappy and boiled, leaving them with no brakes entering a corner. Though I had tools and brake fluid, so we did a quick road side brake bleeding.

Main thing is just not to overdrive your car. Never try to keep up with someone that is faster. I spun my contour around doing that and got my escort a little loose before backing off and just letting the faster car go on.

Cool. Thanks for the link. My parents live on Signal Mountain, TN (near Chattanooga) and I drive from NC to TN and back often. I usually take I-64 (south of 129) and it is a lot of fun as well.

I totalled my Supra doing 95 in a 45 a few years ago on 64. ack! Never drove it since - too scared. The cop said when he got the call he thought he had another fatality since there had been several so far that year. (I hope that doesnt qualify as a street racing story)

Anyways, I am in, but I will probably take it easy. Sounds cool. Thanks for putting this together so early.

I'll be game to go Kremit. Either with the Contour or the new Triumph.

Oh yeah,

My wedding anniversary is May 10th, so I cant go if this is planned anytime around that. My wife would kill me to ride around in my car instead of hang out with her. She will probably want to come, anyways. (but hanging out doing the car thing is not her idea of romantic)

So, proabably late May, like the third of fourth week, would be better for me.

Thanks!
