MINIs on The Dragon 2014 will be held April 30th to May 4th.

Registration begins in January at http://minisonthedragon.com/ This is your chance to sign up for all the day drives and events you want to participate in. Some things fill up fast, so you want to register as soon as you can. (You will have to create an account on the MOTD website, linked above, to register.)

Lodging Info: http://minisonthedragon.com/lodging.php Or email [masked] as we might know of an open room. Or post here if you need help finding lodging.

We usually form groups (depending on who is leaving when) and drive down together. Coordinate in the comments if you want to drive down with a buddy.


What Is The Dragon?

The Dragon started out as an 11-mile stretch of road with 318 curves. That in itself is more than enough reason to travel to the breath taking mountains of North Carolina. But in the first weekend of May each year, it has evolved into much more than that. Just like our beloved MINI's have evolved into more than just a car to us. So you take the 11-mile stretch of road, then you toss in the mountains, country roads and waterfalls. Now add over 600 fellow MINIacs and it takes on a whole new meaning. Wake up each morning and see hundreds of MINIs each day, attend dinners and events, go on group drives, or just gather and drool over each other's mods. Get a chance to put a face to a forum screen name, see some old friends and make some new ones.

    Before I post on NAM or MA thought I would post here in case anyone from our group is in need of a room at Fontana Village. I have a reservation for a room at the lodge with two queen beds. I won't be needing the room. Cost is $109 per night plus tax. Will be posting on sites mentioned above this weekend so first come first served. Call or txt me at[masked]

    Thanks for clearing that up Jim. Lol. Well, I always obey the law, hee hee. Guess I have to go! But some people say I have a dragon problem. I don't, I can quit anytime, I just choose to not quit now! I do not have a dragon problem, I do not have a dragon problem.........

    Hey Colin, I think, by law, you are not allowed to take a year off. I could be wrong.
