Run to the Dragon.. from Greeneville SC 11/11/2017

This is Memorial car rally for my friend's father who passed away. He was always very active in motorsports, and belonged to a Mini Cooper club. This rally is organized by that club, but all vehicles are welcome.


I'll be arriving in Greeneville, SC Friday night and we are heading out to the NC/TN area first thing in the morning.


Here is a copy from the original Facebook posting.


Hi everyone. We will be having a Don Western Memorial Run on Saturday Nov 11th. We are heading over to The Dragon to spread some of Don's ashes at the overlook.

You can meet us at the beginning, or anywhere along the way. Or meet us in Deal's Gap and run that old Dragon.

Don would want all people included...all types of cars. If you know of someone that would like to participate, please send them the details.

Come and celebrate this extraordinary man I was so lucky to be married to. Here are the details:

Here are times and run details:
8:30 AM Depart Ingles Geer Highway (276) between TR and Marietta
9:00 AM Arrive Table Rock Visitors Center
9:15 depart Table Rock Visitors Center
10:15 arrive Village Green Park in Cashiers, NC
10:30 depart Village Green Park in Cashers, NC
Short Pit stop after Franklin on 28 at West Mill BP station.
12:30 PM Arrive Rivers End Restaurant at Nantahala Outdoor Center

Then everyone should have met up with the group.
Approximate times to be determined depending on stops at Dragon

1:30 PM depart River’s End
Possible short Pit stop in Robbinsville.
2:30 PM pass Deals Gap
3:00 PM pass Overlook
3:15 PM stop at parking area on right at end of Dragon before bridge at Chilowhee.
Return to Overlook (Very limited Parking)
Depart for Fontana Village with rest stop at General Store
Head separate ways for dinner and home.


I'm looking forward to this trip to the mountains, and experiencing some car culture with good people. I'm taking my 10 yr old son with me too, so that should be fun.


As it says, all cars are welcome. Obviously I'll be in my G35 6mt coupe, my buddy Derek, whose father this run is for, will be in his Miata RF I'm pretty sure, unless he takes his Dad's Mini.


Come run the Dragon with us.. this group knows the area well, so it should be a lot of fun.

Have fun and be safe! I had my first Dragon experience earlier this year and it was unforgettable. I hope you get a good turnout.
