New this year: please come to the tent at the Mountain Breeze on Friday 8/4/2017 between 9am and 9pm to pick up a registration card to be included in the counts for the Guinness Book of World Records.

Again, please come to the tent on FRIDAY between 9AM TO 9PM.
Event T-shirts will be sold at the big tent on the lawn at the Mountain Breeze Motel on Friday night and again at the cruise—in on Saturday – please bring cash, no credit cards for shirts – while supplies last!
All T-shirts will be $19
100% of the proceeds from the T-shirt sales will go to Bible Baptist Church Teen Missions Ministry.
We will be leaving for The Dragon from Pigeon Forge Middle School (see below for address) at 7:55am with a police escort out of town, please be on time since we will leave at 8am sharp. Since the law enforcement officers will be escorting our group out of town there will be NO room for DELAYS. Please plan accordingly as to show respect to each other and more importantly the officers and their time. Please see following page for a few points of direction that will assist on the morning of the ride.
The Cruise In will be held at The Diner in Sevierville TN ( Hwy 66—see next page for address and make sure to pick up a map at the tent to bypass traffic). This event will be held from 4pm-8pm.
Our favorite TN DJ Gary’s Sound Machine will be joining us again this year. When you arrive at the diner there will be an opportunity to enter into several drawings ($50, $100) and have free drinks with your meal at The Diner for $10 per person. There will also be a separate 50/50 drawing with 50% going to a one of the many charities supported by The Diner.
WE HOPE TO SEE Y’ALL THERE!!!
DRAGON’S TAIL RIDE
SATURDAY AUG 5th
Leaving from Pigeon Forge Middle School at
Please keep in mind this year we will have an escort out of town in efforts to keep everyone together—the men and women of the various law enforcement divisions will be taking their time to help us, so please be on time. Also, once you are in line, please stay in line and keep your speed consistent with our group so that everyone arrives within the same time frame to the start of the Dragon.
We will leave the school and follow Hwy 321 toward Townsend TN. Once at the end of 321 we will turn right at the light. After turning right please stay in the left lane to Smoky Mountain Parkway. At the end of the parkway turn Left, and left again at the lake.
There will be a brief break at the lake before taming the Tail of the Dragon in order to make the official count, so PLEASE HAVE YOUR REGISTRATION CERTIFICATES ON HAND AND VISIBLE TO BE COUNTED.
The Dragon ends at Deals Gap, this is also where our “group ride” will end. There is a souvenir shop once you have slayed the dragon, if you wish to stop keep in mind there is limited parking at this store, please be aware of others when shopping. If you need fuel please continue straight to Robbinsville or return via the Dragon to Townsend. If you choose to head toward Robbinsville, there is a nice ride to Bryson City (below Cherokee) where 411 will bring you back to Pigeon Forge, TN.
