East Coast Meetup #12, Sunday 5/15 - Friday 5/20. The desmo-duodecimo. If you've been you know how special this event is. If you're even thinking about it - DO IT! The Blue Ridge and Foothills Parkways (especially the new bit, omfg), the Cherohala Skyway, the Tail of The Dragon, Route 28, all are truly must-ride experiences. And riding with frens makes these epic twisties more epic-er. You'll be even faster in the evening as you recount the day's adventures over beers and whatever back at the Lodge. ;)

This year promises to be extra special as we move to the beautiful Tapoco Lodge on the Cheoha River at Rt 129 at the foot of the Dragon. Book early to get a 10% group discount rate, after 3/15/22 the rooms get released to the general public.

I don't see a site map for the Tapoco lodge and cabins. Can't figure out where to reserve.
follow the above instructions, "reservations" is under "accommodations", enter the code, it has photos and descriptions of the rooms, they look quite nice.

^that's a good idea, lots of local places in the area (Fontana!), and I was told there's a chance room could open up at Tapoco depending on how many rooms end up being used by the wedding party that arrives on Friday.

Possibly.
I'm gonna grab the two bedroom/three bed cabin room, Chilhowee Cabin One. One king and two twins in the second bedroom. Who wants in?
Having roomed with Chuck in two states I can vouch for him. He's a pleasant fellow who eventually goes to sleep. I don't recall any snoring.

Having stayed in a room adjacent to Yorik I can say he's a man-whore. So good luck Mike.

Worth considering...if folks want to get a little organized and agree on dinner- and maybe even breakfast-times.

What happened to having the meet overlap a Friday through Sunday?
We could do that if we picked a different week (or month) probably, these were the dates available for this May given the other events they have scheduled. But as noted folks can book other venues to come earlier or stay later.

They are asking whether we want to do any organized activities like a movie night. Might be fun, although historically I think we entertain ourselves pretty well.

It might be pleasantly civilized if we wanted to set a regular time to meet for dinner so they could reserve space for us. Whaddy'all think about that?

I was just informed that the party following us cancelled so our group is extended until 5/20.
