It's organized by a member of kawi2strokes.com/forum, and all information about the meet shows up in this forum:

http://www.kawi2strokes.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=35

Last I checked, all the rooms at the Deals Gap Resort were taken, but that can change, and of course there are a lot of places nearby to stay, and camping that the resort and other campgrounds. There's a room sharing thread in that forum in case you want to see if someone has a bunk is available.

It's a 2-stroke meet, and although it's good to bring one, it's not a requirement.

I'll be at Kershaw (Carolina Motorsports Park) at the end of March, I might hit the Dragon (or some of the other fine roads around there) after that.

If you want to find me, just ask anyone attending where Jim is. That's my board name on that one. If you don't want to find me, ask someone where I am and go the other direction.

Friday morning probably isn't too bad. It gets noticeably worse by noon. If you'll be traveling 8 hours to and from the Dragon for a one day visit there, you'd be much better off later in the season, Monday-Thursday. Then you'll be fairly alone all day. A friend who's local to the area says October is best, after the leaves quit falling.

I went once during the busy season. From then on I only go back in October/November. I'm always afraid some old man in corvette is going to cross the double yellow on me.

28 is a great road. i enjoy it as much as the dragon.
honestly, any secondary/county paved road up there is amazing. i like to just take random roads and see where i end up. usually further from home than i intended. makes for a sore ride home. haha
keep those pictures coming!!
