I spoke to Connie this afternoon and she sent me the following email so those of you who want to go ahead and make reservations (and cancel your reservations at Sleep Inn), she's now ready for you. Be sure to mention "Smoky Mountain Ride In" in your message.

Here is the email from Connie:

If the people who would like reservations for the above June dates would email me at [email protected] I will make reservations and email them a confirmation. If they do not wish to give me a credit card number in the email, give me a phone number and name and I will call them and obtain the proper information.

We look forward to having the group stay with us. Any questions etc. please direct to me by email.

Quick Update - 2/4/09: If you send Connie an email after 6am Friday morning, she will not process the reservation or call you back until Monday evening or Tuesday morning. She will be out of town this weekend. That is ONLY this weekend, 2/7 & 2/8.

Wayne :yes1::clap2:
No problem! I'm excited about everyone putting the screws to the butt heads at the Sleep Inn!
Connie is a sweetheart! She'll hook you up!
... let's have a contest on the Name of the annual event.
My vote is for "Screw Honda Hoot." Next year, we could call it "The 2nd Annual Screw Honda Hoot Ride In." :lol:;)
I received this email from Connie this afternoon:

To all the Gold Wing owners coming to Bryson City in June.

The Microtel Inn & Suites welcomes each and every one of you. There is a restaurant with a lounge adjacent to the Microtel.

I have received 23 emails so far. There is still availability at the Microtel.

The controller has a program on my lap top so that I can make reservations. We will be downloading those in the Microtel system during training in about 6 weeks. Tonight I will be emailing confirmations for those who have given me credit card info by phone. There are a few I have not been able to contact by phone at this time. We seem to be playing phone tag.

Area info:

Bryson City is a gateway community as the Great Smoky Mountains National Park comes almost to the edge of town. This is the 75th Anniversary of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. There are special events planned to celebrate the 75th Anniversary. Also, Bryson City is the Adventure Capital of the Smokies. You will experience your own adventure as you ride of byways of the beautiful Smoky Mountains. There is also whitewater rafting on the Nantahala River, jet boat rides on Lake Fontana, hiking on the Appalachian Trail or other trails in the national park, fishing, and even a train ride on the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad. After a full day of activities a beautiful sunset awaits you.
