Friday, April 13th - Lots of Dragon driving and be sure to check out surrounding roads for a great time. Many folks will arrive on this day (many arrive earlier). Plan to attend the Registration gathering which will be held at the ball-field in the evening. You'll need to pick up your registration packet which will include your event credentials. Be sure to wear your lanyard and nametag to join in (this will serve as your MEAL pass for Saturday night and admission to all activities). Lots of great times to be had.
We'll also have an early registration and "First Timer's Orientation" and "Dragon Buddy" ridealong on Friday morning. Check the final itinerary for exact time and meeting location. If this is your first Dragon event, we encourage you to join in and meet some other first timers and learn tips on driving your S2000 on the Dragon. Various group drives will also be available during the day on Friday; most of which include a stop for lunch along the way.
Saturday, April 14th - The official "DAY" of the event. We'll roll out from Fontana as a large S2000 group - great for video lovers and those wanting great pics of all the S2000s. Dragon driving...and lots of it is on the agenda. We'll have a group photo at the end of the Dragon, and then you can check out a variety of Group Drives (these will be organized drives on various roads surrounding the Dragon) that will offer lunch options. If you choose not to do any of the drives, you are welcome to continue driving the Dragon, explore the area on your own or go back to relax at the lodge. Dinner will be served in the Rec Hall below Fontana Village Lodge. We'll enjoy dinner with a recap of our event and a presentation to follow.
Sunday, April 15th - Say goodbye to fellow S2000 enthusiasts. Some folks will be driving the Dragon, but the majority will be leaving on this day.
We look forward to seeing you on the Dragon!
