LODGING: We do get discount rates, but you MUST tell Fontana Village you are with the Yamaha R1 Forum Group to get the discount rates and so that they put you with us. If there are any problems ask to speak with Debbie or just let me know. Their phone number is 1-800-849-2258. Make your reservations early. IT WILL FILL UP!!! It would really suck to not be able to get a cabin at Fontana

Look at their website and inquire with them, by phone, to make your choice. 1-800-849-2258. I would suggest making reservations as early as you can, everywhere fills up that time of year up there.

They have blocked off 22 cabins and 10 lodge rooms for us. So start making reservations as soon as you can. After March 1st, 2011 they will be released to the general public and WILL sell out. SO GET YOUR RESERVATIONS MADE ASAP!!!

For the guys coming up as singles I would suggest getting together with other folks on the Forum and splitting the cost of a small or large cabin. There are gonna be several cabins available.

Fontana also has campsites available if you want to camp. They are approximately a mile down the road.


Everyone is welcome - but please realize that this group is made up with many types of riders of different skill levels and desires. This is not about getting together to race, or to drag other people into riding above their limits! Everyone is expected to ride at their own pace and have a good time!


REMEMBER: Deadline is April 30th, 2011 for all funds!!!


Alcoholic beverages: BYOB

T-SHIRTS: PRE ORDER ONLY!! The shirt cost of $20 is included in the price above. If you don't want a shirt you aren't required to purchase one.

PHOTOGRAPHY: We will have a professional photographer in attendance.

PRIZES: Of course we will have prizes like each year. These will be given out at the Yamaha dinner on Saturday night. You HAVE to be a member of the R1 Forum or R6 Forum and also on the definates list to be eligible for the Prize drawing.

We have some killer prizes every year so you need to make sure I put you on the definates list if you are coming. No maybes, WE said definates...please remember that.

Everyone can sign up by replying to this thread or sending a PM to myself or DanQ and we will put you on the list.

EMERGENCY CONTACT INFO: Everyone must fill out the sheet upon check-in at the reservation desk of the Fontana Lodge.

Here are some of the events that will be held during the week.

Monday-Friday
  • 6:30 PM will be dinner on Stonehenge (cabin and fire pit area at Fontana).
  • Cross Roads Lunch (usually everyone meets at the CROT for lunches daily)

Saturday
  • 1 pm Annual Ride to Overlook
  • 6:30 pm is the Big Yamaha Sponsored dinner. The prize giveaway will be during this also. .
Most everything is discussed and planned out in the evenings around dinner and hanging out. If you want to get up a ride or find out where people are going the next day come up to Shuckstack Road and hang out. If you get to Fontana during the day just head to the CROT and you will find someone from the forum.[/LIST]
Please contact myself or DanQ, to be put on the definite list:

You don't have to be on the definites list to be eligible for prizes, but you MUST BE PRESENT! There will be someone taking sign up entries for prizes on site during the dinner Saturday!

Wednesday Group Ride to Yamaha / Luncheon

This year we aren't visiting a dealership. Myself and Chuck Graves will be leading a ride along with Team Zyvax racing owner JB Layman from the gap through the Elijay mountains then a quick trip down 575 to Kennesaw, Georgia where Yamaha's eastern distribution center is. Wednesday June 15, please meet the group riders at the HELLBENDER store located directly at the entrance at Fontana Village (

) at 7am where some of us will be eating breakfast before the ride. at around 8:15 am the two groups will meet together at the Deals Gap Resort to head out on the ride
.

We will be given a lunch courtesy of Yamaha USA and a tour of the facility and they are arranging prizes as well!

This is a huge deal and doesn't happen often. I'd like EVERYONE to head over with us. It works out to be a 2.5 hour ride if I remember we'll stop in the middle.

I plan on getting a cabin, and I have another guy going down with me. We can all split the cost to get there and a cabin and save big $$$$.....Let me know I will be getting a cabin next month with my extra funds and you can save up and pay me when it comes down to it.

Whos going down with you? if anyone has room to haul my bike I'm in, I don't think I'll be able to afford a bike and a truck this year. I'll know more after I get another bike. I'll keep you posted though. I did promise that I'd go this next year and I plan on keeping that promise

Well Maybe a guy named Todd (todd243r6 on stlmoto) He said he wanted to go but has not got back to me, I will have room, I can get a couple different trailers to take down there so Room will not be an issue. Right now Sean (LS1_se7en) Might be Bunking there too, Just need to work out the deatails fully

Ok well leave a spot open for me, if you have trailer space I'm 100% in as long as I get a bike this winter. Let me know about how much it will cost me in total to go out there and room with ya so I have an idea.
