Welcome to the 14th Annual MINIs Slay the Sleeping Dragon!
This event is now open for registrations.
MINIs Slay the Sleeping Dragon is a gathering of MINIs old and new, at picturesque Fontana Village at Deals Gap, NC. Masses of MINIs will be attending to Slay the Dragon! MSSD will be held on Friday through Sunday, October 14th through 16th. This is a laid back event which will have time for fellowship and driving! There will be something for everyone! We have a group rate on a block of lodge rooms and a number of cabins. See our forum for information on accommodations.
This years Friday October 14th evening event will be the same great event we had at the last MSSD. We will meet at 4:30 in the Ingles Grocery Store, 76 Hughes Branch Rd, Bryson City, NC and do the following:
1. First, we will be meeting at 4:30 in the Ingles Grocery Store parking lot where we will pass out T-shirts and make run announcements.
2. Second, at 5:15, we will head towards downtown Bryson City where we will park around or near the Swain County Clerk of Court Building.
3. Finally, we will then split up to have dinner at 5:30 in one of three great restaurants in Bryson City. We have made reservations for the following number of people at the following restaurants:
a. Pasqualino's Italian Restaurant (~30 people) 25 Everett Street, Bryson City, NC
b. Bryson City Cork & Bean (~40 people) 16 Everett St., Bryson City, NC
c. Jimmy Mac's (~45 people) 121 Main St, Bryson City, NC
Here is a map of downtown Bryson City showing how close the 3 restaurants are to each other. If you zoom out and look Northwest across the river you will see an odd-shaped building with lots of parking. That is the Swain County Clerk of Court Building. We will park there as a group and walk over the bridge to dinner. We will have a shortened menu at each restaurant rather than ordering off the menu the to make the meals a bit faster. Menu details not available yet. Note that dinner will be at your own expense.
PRE-REGISTRATION is very important. It will let us know how many cars to plan for. It will also allow us to send out important information by email all those who register as the event gets closer. If you are at least 75% sure you are coming, please register today, you can always cancel at a later date.
Shirts for this event are to be pre-paid during registration. The cut-off date to purchase shirts is September 18th. You will pick up your shirts Friday night at the Ingles Grocery Store parking lot before we head to dinner or at Fontana Village during the weekend.
Will you be bringing more than one MINI? You will be able to "add another vehicle" in your account after you complete the registration.
Stay tuned to the club's website for all the complete info prior to the event.
