Event Organizer Lorie Haggarty 423-791-0108
Bob Maurer and Becca are signed up for the Fall Zoomin the Mountains of East Tennessee and hope others may want to make the trip also.
Bob talked with Lorie Haggerty, event organizer, August 24th and she expects that the registration forms will be on their website by September 1. Their fees are always very reasonable and a special room rate for the event is only $82 per night. Call the Johnson City Holiday Inn directly at 423-282-4611 for reservations with the Miata Zoomin the Mountains group.
There are lots of good roads and destinations nearby. Lorie expects our drives to possibly take us to the Snake, Rattler and possible Diamondback and Devil’s Whip. If their drives do not go there, you can drive them yourself; all are close by. There’s even Davy Crockett’s birthplace to visit. Some NCMC members who have been there before, besides us, are Rich and Lilas Velardo, Daryl and Jane Baker, Bob and Diane Wido, and Skip and Mary Ann Williams. Email me or call with questions or simply log on to Zoomin’s website for more information and registration.
Their scheduled drives and food events are all optional—a cherry picking kind of registration form. It is a laid-back atmosphere of Miata friends from many states with drives that are moderately brisk but are not like Miatas-In-Boone’s crazy speeds. It is about a 7 hour trip, and a drive on Virginia’s Back of the Dragon on the way down or back is fun and doesn’t add much time to the trip—worth the detour.

Thursday Oct 26, 7:30 PM, Poolside gathering
