Tail of the Dragon Trip - September 12th

This year we return to Tail of the Dragon for a weekend of fun on some very twisty road (mine you not curvy, twisty). 318 turns within 11 miles is a lot of sharp and challenging turns with a mountain on one side and a drop off on the other. 

This road is not for the faint of heart .If you've never been on the Tail you might be asking, “Why in the world would I want to drive on a road like that?” Answer: Because the Porsche is capable of driving it with ease. Of course some driver skill is involved. These cars were built for this kind of driving. So if your car is whispering in your ear, it’s probably saying, “Take me to the Tail.” 

Hotel rooms are discounted for the event at $89 per night (plus tax). The first nights cost is required as a deposit when you make your reservation. Be sure to tell them you are with Palmetto Region PCA 2014. The discounted room rate is only available till August 8, 2014.

This year’s event registration is: $30 per person if you are attending the Saturday evening dinner which will be beef tips w/burgundy sauce, fettuccini alfredo, sweet potato casserole, peas and carrots, tossed garden salad, cheesecake, bread and butter, water and tea, otherwise there is no cost. We'll have some door prizes during the dinner as well as a picture show from the days drive. As in the past be prepared for some "Awards" if the occasion presents itself. Some past ones: The Sippy Cup. The Compass.
