    The rally is open to club members and their guests. Your friends will certainly be welcome to attend. And when they see how much fun we have...maybe they'll come on over . I'll be there and I hope to see you and your friends there too!

    the article is here, including the maps and the GPS routes.

    the graphics are very large, so you should be able to copy and print them with good results.

    however, they don't have much of the detail (some of the roads are really small!), so you're best off using the GPS routes with some mapping software.

    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

    I recall last year's snacking at a nice river-side restaurant (on your right) as you enter Tellico Plains along the Cherohala, and the challenge of flawless runs on the 'Dragon' in both directions.

    Can't wait!
    I know that place! Had a nice breakfast there as the wife and I watched the sun come up before heading home from the ROK rally when it was held near there.

    Why isn't thread a sitcky???

    It's mentioned in the MOA. Might be a good idea to link the GPS files to the Rally page.

    Thanks Ian,
    Looks like many of us, including myself, could use a GPS clinic.
    I'm running a NavIII and don't have too much trouble loading files via Mapsource.
    Now if I could only get that voice to speak to me again, most curiously silent she is.
    (What'd I do!?)

    I just might do lunch there again this year, after earning my 'Dragon Wings' once more.

    I understand the May ON is going to have some interesting rides detailed for the Rally if you like twisties.
    'You can say what you want about the South, but I almost never hear of anyone wanting to retire to the North.

    Ya, I remember seeing it, then could not find it again. Just thought it would make sense to have it more readily available as it relates directly to the article on the rally and area in general.
