Hello Everyone,

The results are in. With 46% of the vote, Fancy Gap Cabins and Campground has the majority of votes for our 2021 Meetup in the Mountains. The remaining percentage of votes was divided among the other three locations. Thank you to everyone who voted! We had votes from all over the USA and Canada!

On Monday I will call Fancy Gap Cabins and Campground to inquire about possible dates that fit our traditional timeframe (late Sept. through Oct. in 2021). I will also discuss their group rates as well. I will report back to you all with official dates of our event and any other important information.

Peace,
Chris

Looks like a good choice.

Out of curiosity - how many total votes on the survey?

Hello Everyone!

Our 6th Annual Meetup in the Mountains will be September 23rd through 26th 2021 at the Fancy Gap Cabins and Campground in Fancy Gap Virginia.

Location and Contact Details
Fancy Gap Cabins and Campground
Owners: Jennifer and Charles Woodford
Address: 202595 Blue Ridge Pkwy, Fancy Gap, VA 24328
Phone: (276) 730-7154
Email: [email protected]
Website: Blue Ridge Parkway Camping | Fancy Gap Cabins and Campground

I spoke with the owners today (Oct. 19, 2020) to discuss and determine the best time for us to hold our event at their location. Sept. 23rd - 26th is best. Please, begin your preparations for attending! Our 6th annual event has the potential to be our best rally yet!

Reservations
Our group name: Honda Motorcycle Group
  • The owners were willing to block off all the motel rooms and cabins for our group exclusively until January 4th. With that said, please contact Jennifer and Charles to make your reservation prior to January 4th. After January 4th all remaining rooms and cabins will be made available for the general public to reserve.
We will be given a 10% discount (group rate) for our lodging accommodations. Don't forget to mention our group name.

Accommodations
Motel Rooms: $70 per night plus tax
  • Each of the motel rooms has a private bathroom with towels, a queen bed with linens, a futon that folds out to a full-size bed, air conditioning, heat, TV, mini-fridge, microwave and coffee maker with supplies.
Cabins: $60 per night plus tax
  • The six, one-room camping cabins include a queen bed with linens, a futon that folds out to a full-size bed, mini-fridge, microwave and coffee maker with supplies. There is not a bathroom. Guests use the nearby bath house that has five, private full bathrooms and hot showers.
Tents: $25 per night plus tax
  • The five tent sites have water, electric, picnic tables, fire rings and charcoal grills. The sites are located along a short road on the edge of the woods above the small pond. They are close to the bath house that has five, private, full bathrooms with hot showers and utility sinks. They have free Wi-Fi.
  • Two small tents or one large tent fit on each site. Sites 14 and 15 are best for hammocks. A maximum of five people are allowed per site.
More to come!
I used to live not far from this region (Greensboro, High Point, Winston Salem NC) and would ride up to the Blue Ridge Parkway up HWY 52 often. There are many great roads, restaurants, and entertainment options in the areas surrounding Fancy Gap. I have some ideas already in mind for our day-to-day activities and will begin to organize my thoughts into a detailed plan. Those of you who are also familiar with the area are encouraged to reach out to me (PM/DM, Email, or Phone) to share any suggestions you might have.

Peace,
Chris Hansen (aka, HansenCTX)

@HansenCTX - Hey Chris - I just set up my reservation for 21st thru 26th. I like to go early... Anyway, I spoke with Charles who said the place was blocked starting the 24th, so not sure if that was what you wanted or not since note above says 23rd..

Charles did say that Jennifer handled groups so maybe he has days wrong.

Just got off the phone with Charles. He said Jennifer will call back to make arrangements.

He was under the impression that "MOST" people will be staying Friday through Sunday. I told him some (myself included) will be traveling Thursday and arriving that night.

EDIT: I called back later that day and spoke with Jennifer. Booked room M1 for Thurs - Sun. I will try to bring the wife this time so I will be trailering in. She won't have a 10 hr ride there AND back...

Beth and I have booked motel room #6 for W, T, F, & S nights.

Was really hoping that Arkansas would win, since it’s over 300 miles closer. But - you folks are worth the extra 5 hours!!!! Besides - I ain’t never rode a scooter in Virginnie!!!!

Edit: Beth texted me with an “OH, CRAP” a few minutes ago. Checked her calendar, and that weekend is the planned weekend for her brother’s daughter to get married (had supper with the family and met her prospective groom that Thursday night we were in Dahlonega). Good news is: a better chance that we’ll actually make the meetup; bad news: will have to leave early Sat morning. Will leave reservation as-is for now. Not sure if wedding is in Atlanta area or farther NE from Dahlonega (better!). May have to do like Barry and arrive a couple days earlier. Lotsa stuff can still change in 11 months, too ...

Thanks for the update. You are correct, we do start on the 23rd (Thursday) and go till the 26th (Sunday). I am on it. Simple error that is easy to fix. I will call Jennifer and make sure our group's event dates are correct.

Peace,
Chris

I just made my reservation. Cabin #1. Jennifer told me we already have eight reservations in less than 24 hours for our group. Wow!

There is one motel room and five cabins left. There are also the tent sites. Just a reminder, cabins and motel rooms have one queen bed and a futon that folds out into a full-size bed. With that said, if two people wanted to share a motel room or cabin it can be done.

Tent-sites are limited to five. According to the website description tent sites can accommodate up to three people (considering tent size). For example, you can fit a couple two-man tents in one tent-site.

Super exciting!

Peace,
Chris
