If you've been following along in the "UnRally XVI 2017 - Where" thread, you'll see that RealShelby was correct. I'll bet Ed McMahon will show up at his door any day now.

COME UN WITH US AT FONTANA VILLAGE RESORT IN FONTANA DAM, NC, 26-29 JUNE 2017. Explore all the area has to offer in beautiful scenery, fun activities, and more seriously sweet motorcycle roads per square mile than any comparable footprint within the USA!

UN XVI has been titled "The BMWST Smoky Mountain Tour." Come ride the area's "Sweet 16;" sixteen fantastic motorcycle roads that include: the "Tail of the Dragon" at Deal's Gap, Cherohala Skyway, The Blue Ridge Parkway (BRP), "Moonshiner 28," to name just a few. What's more is there are many other great roads we don't talk much about to keep them relatively unknown. And did I mention that FVR is located on a great road known as HellBender?

The Resort itself is an exceptional place to relax at the end of your journey there or each day after taking in some of the region's many offerings in rides, natural beauty, eateries, cultural & historical sites, etc. Most importantly, FVR is a beautiful place, with an arrangement and ample conveniences perfect for an UN, to get the people of this community to connect and reconnect ... comfortably.

If you have questions, please post them to the appropriate thread rather than sending us PMs. The reason is that if you're asking a question, it's likely someone else will have the same question. So, let's share them all to build an FAQ of sorts. Thanks.

In subsequent posts in this thread we'll provide pictures and information about the FVR amenities, campus activities, and information about the surrounding area.

Mine was an honest "guess"! I was NOT in on any insider info! But I am glad I was correct. This is an excellent place to host an UN. Very clost to the "Tail of the Dragon". But maybe more important is the other directions and sites begging to be explored. As punishment for guessing early and alarming TyTass maybe I will host a ride to Dry Falls/Veil Falls!

Great location Craig! Looking forward to seeing many of our west coast members attend this Un - probably the best location on the east coast for every type of motorcycle riding!

That would be exceptional. Yeah, we passed this place a bazillion times. I'd even ridden up to the Lobby exterior entrance, and though it was nice. But to fully "get" how nice, you have to go inside and into the pool deck area.

Of course all the other goings on in the resort area (putt putt golf, disc golf, firepits with chairs, playgrounds, snow cone shack, ice cream parlor, a separate pool with a lazy river and children wading areas, etc.) make it exceptional for families. And lastly, the rooms and cabin are nicely appointed and we've gotten a very good rate. The cabins are very good options for families with children that are on vacation (can cook a few meals, if you like).

So, yes, do bring the family! Would love to finally meet your whole clan anyway. thumbsup

Great choice, Craig. I've just registered, and paid the event fee. Now to reserve a room, which I hope Endobobdds will handle for the both of us. dopeslap

We're confident everyone will love the venue and the region.

Funny thing about the Appalachian chain is, as you know, there are a number of different sub-regions within it, where the landscape and flora change quite dramatically. Riding the Appalachians in Northern GA looks quite different from those in Western NC, which is different from those in Central NC, etc. So, although there were UnRallies in Little Switzerland and Blowing Rock, the area around Fontana is very different from those areas.

The venue is as beautiful as the pictures make it appear. Alan and I were there a bit over a month ago and didn't want to leave. It's ... well, very comfortable.

I'll be posting more pictures to this thread to better illustrate what FVR has to offer.

Good to know they have the extra stuff at the resort to keep the little people busy.

Between that and the cabins, it looks like it would be ideal for bringing the rugrats

My daughter and I spent our annual moto-vacation there this past June. The best week I have ever spent riding. Now I will be taking the wife for another spectacular week.
