Here is a link to a screenshot of the rockslide incident at The Dragon. More info is available at the Dragon website or on Facebook. Looks like we will be okay by the end of April.

Bad news update! It appears that the Dragon will now be closed through July 31st. There is a letter writting campaign over on NAM, the Minis on the Dragon site, and Facebook to have part of the road opened for the MOTD event. Doesn't look real promising, but the event will go on. There are plenty of other really good roads around there.

Looks like I won't have to miss the Dragon on my first MOTD!!!
biggrin
The following is from dealsgap.com!

Wednesday April 7

MONDAY 12 APRIL 2010 THE DRAGON WILL BE OPEN AT 8 AM.

Ok gang great news.....it is official well all but the lawyer to say ok. TDOT will build a fence at the state line with a gate. They will open the Dragon for use from 8am until 8pm from the NC side only. There is still no way to get past the slide so you will have to turn around after the Dragon and return. Two THP will patrol as well as Graham county EMS will be the medical support.

MONDAY 12 APRIL 2010 THE DRAGON WILL BE OPEN AT 8 AM.

Folks we need to thanks for this are and they are not in order: US Congressmen Heath Schuler, NC Sen John Snow, NC Rep Roger West, TN Sen Doug Overbey, TN Commissioner Gerald Nicely, TN Rep McCord, all the folks at TDOT, the Graham County Commissioners for all the EMS support, THP, NCHP NC and TN Governor's staff and most importantly all the wonderful motorcycle and sport car groups and people who took the time to write, email, fax and call letting these folks know how much you love our area.

Folks looks like great weather on Monday so come visit and ride the Dragon once again.
