    Outings for the event:

    Thursday June 13th, 2013:

    Meet up (Meeting place Smoky Mountains Sugarland Visitor Center) @ 0930
    to rally to the Dragon US HWY 129. We will be taking the same scenic
    roads as last year, so be prepared with plenty of fuel. This is the
    reason we all make the trek out to MTOD each year, We’d love to see you
    make it out to this one!!! Spend as much time at the Dragon as you like,
    we will grab a group pic somewhere prior to driving the Dragon *North side of the Dragon for those not meeting us at Sugarlands*, then its up to each person on how much time is spent there.

    There is nothing else planned for the day, I always plan on spending
    the better part of the day driving the Dragon, part of the Moonshiner
    and maybe the Skyway. Its up to each person/group.

    Friday June 14th, 2013:

    Meet up (Meeting place Gatlinburg Vistors Center 1011 Banner Rd. Gatlinburg, TN) @ 0830 *Yes its early, but its over a 2 hr drive from Gatlinburg to Diamonback* Travel
    out to Diamondback if you want to hit up another great road in the
    area, if not plan your own mini trip or just relax. *Link to Diamonback
    here: http://www.thediamondbacknc.com/ *

    1900 (7PM) Meet up in Pigeon Forge for some go kart hooning *Location to be determined*

    Saturday June 15th, 2013:

    Enjoy the tourist traps / relax

    Group dinner @ 6 PM @ Bennet’s Barbeque in Pigeon Forge. This will be a
    time we can all get together, share in some laughs, drinks and food and
    say farewell to all our old friends and new friends. Shinanigans
    could/may transpire after this event if people want their asses handed
    to them again for a second in in Go Karts!

    Sunday June 16th, 2013:
