Come and join the largest annual gathering of Miatas in the country on July 23-25, 2010!
There will be vendors, free food, beer swaps, drives to area attractions (both natural and man-made), and of course... great roads, great people and great cars!
You'll see Miatas in every state of transformation, from bone stock to barely resembling the original vehicle. If you ever wanted to know if something could be done to a Miata, you'll probably see it here!
Vendors will be set up at Fontana with their wares for sale, show and shine will be just about everywhere there is to park and a few places in between.
There will be drives to different locations, including Wayah Road, the Cherohala Skyway, waterfall tours, Fat Buddies BBQ in Franklin, and of course, The Tail of the Dragon!
So come and sit a spell and relax with your new best friends.
If you plan on staying the night, I might suggest calling NOW! Lodgings fill up quickly and if they're already full, ask about a waiting list. I've heard a rumor that the Lodge at Fontana Village is already full for 2010!
See you at the Gap!
The MATG forum has moved to a new host. It's now based on the www.gapmiatas.com
website. There's a redirect in place at the old location just in case you forget.
***Current road conditions***
Deal's Gap is open from 8am to 8pm until the rockslide is cleared near the Foothills Parkway. You can't get to the Dragon from Tennessee, only from the North Carolina side. Here
is a map indicating the location of the slide and showing some detours around the slide.
The contractor is required to have all work on the rockslide completed by July 31, however, there is a $6,500 per day bonus if they complete the project early up to a maximum bonus of $200,000 if completed by July 1. Once road access has been restored (even if its only one lane) then the Dragon will again be open 24/7.
Regardless, the gathering is still scheduled as originally planned.
