We are pleased to announce the 3rd Annual River City Bimmers Tail of the Dragon drive! Yes, we are going to The Tail of The Dragon again and we have invited the following chapters: Blue Grass, Choo Choo, Heart of Dixie, Mountain State, Old Hickory, Peachtree, Sandlapper, Smoky Mountain, and Tarheel! We don't get many opportunities for so many chapters and enthusiasts to get together and we hope you'll consider joining us if you haven't previously or joining us again if you have. Also, please spread the word! You do not have to be a BMW CCA member to attend this event and if there is another chapter you think should be invited please let us know!

This year we're serving up an even better event thanks to what we've learned in the last two years and feedback from our attendees. Major changes for this year will be an agenda and timeline that will be provided prior to the event as well as up on a bulletin board in the Fontana Village lobby. The bulletin board will also include the contact information for the event organizers, QR codes for maps to local areas of interest including the local grocery store, gas stations that have premium, the nearest auto store, and our meet up points so you can scan them and save the maps to your phone while you have coverage at Fontana. Our drives will be structured to ensure no one gets lost and if you want to do more performance driving after the Tail or take a more leisurely drive, we will be splitting into two groups to accommodate that as well as ensuring we have defined group leaders to make sure everyone arrives at the meetup points. Lastly, if you attended either or both of the last years you may notice a slight raise in price on the t-shirts (now $20) and meal (now $30). This is due not only to River City Bimmers running at a loss the last two years, but we will also be providing a more flexible meal by having a buffet which includes the following:

Entrees:

  • Chicken Mushroom Marsala
  • Broiled Alaskan Cod
  • Marinated Flank Steak

Bread:

  • Assorted Artisan Dinner Rolls

Salad:

  • Tossed Garden Salad

Sides:

  • Whipped Yukon Potatoes
  • Roasted Vegetable Medley

Dessert:

  • Mixed Berry Cobbler

Please see lodging and other information below.

The deadline to purchase t-shirts or the buffet is September 20th so don't wait and miss out! The group rates Fontana has provided also only last until September 20th.
In order for a chapter to have their name on the t-shirt we need at least one member attending the event.

You can reach Fontana to make your reservations at 828-498-2103. Make sure to tell them you are with the River City Bimmers group to get the discount!

For the River City Bimmers chapter, we will caravan there all together on Friday, October 20, 2017 starting at 8 AM. We will be returning home Sunday. For members from the surrounding chapters, we will be providing the estimated stop times, contact info, and points in case you'd like to join us for the drive to Fontana. That information will be provided on the Facebook page as well as email.

Tail of the Dragon. It’s a magical route that car and bike enthusiasts alike put on their bucket list. It’s more than 318 curves in 11 miles, it’s a long established route that dates back before the asphalt and roaring engines were graced with its presence. Before men used the route and built upon it, it belonged to nature and was a route that was carved out by large herds of buffalo. If you really think about it, this is a path as nature intended it to be. It’s not just a road, it’s a dream, it’s a feeling, and it’s everything you envision driving to be before you get your driver’s license. This isn’t the same route you take to work every day, or the long interstate you clamor on to get where you’re going, it is more than a road, a path, a route. It is freedom, togetherness, and a sound belief that any road so beautiful, majestic, treacherous, should be driven, and with great enthusiasm.

The weekend of October 20th we will be driving the mystic route, and for those of us who have never been, we will be living a dream, and for those of you have already driven those 318 curves, you will be reliving that dream. Whatever it may be, we hope that you join us and make a drive that has been so memorable for ages and generations before us. Let’s be a part of history together, and even make a little history of our own.

See you there!!
