Here is the latest update from Paul on Ambush.
Let me know if I do not have you on the list, and if you are not on the mailing list send me an email so I can send you direct updates.
The 2011 Ambush will be September 18th-22nd. This is 2 weeks after Labor day.
Glad to see some take up from some non-Stalkers! All are welcome!
The Brunton Stalker owners have been getting together on an annual basis for what will be 5 years in 2011 with the last 3 years and this one based in Helen, GA.
This is a low-key affair with minimal organized activities except for daily drives on fantastic roads and an informal get together for dinner each night. The drives will typically stop for lunch somewhere interesting. The Riverbend typically puts on breakfast of muffins, etc and a conference room for us to congregate in the mornings.
Daily drives and informal dinners
Sunday - Some short drives around the Helen area to accomodate the people arriving that day.
Meeting point will be the Riverbend in the parking lot.
Monday - A long day with some fantastic roads!
Meet at RiverBend at 8:30AM full of fuel for a 9:00AM sharp departure.
We will drive from Helen to Maggie Valley, NC for lunch.
Following lunch, we will tour the Wheels Through Time Museum (http://www.wheelsthroughtime.com
) with a group discount price of $10 per head.
Then we will head back to Helen.
I expect we will drive just over 350 miles that day and we will take in some of the best roads around to include War Woman Road from Clayton, GA towards Highlands, NC.
Tuesday - Trips a little closer to Helen, with just as wonderful roads!
Take the long way to Dawsonville, GA, the home of Million Dollar Bill Ellliott of Nascar fame!
Lunch at the DawsonVille Pool Room (http://www.motorsportamerica.com/adv...oom/index.html
). Jeremy Porter (CEO) and Becky Powell (Operations) from Atlanta Motorsports Park will be joining us for lunch.
Tour of Atlanta Motorsports Park (http://atlantamotorsportspark.net/
) AMP is nearing the end of construction and is welcoming us to have a tour of the facility and hear the vision behind the project.
(Alternate or also, the the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame (http://www.thunderroadusa.com/Museum.html
) is a mile from the Pool Room)
Return to Helen, the long way.
Meet at Creekwood Resort at 8:45AM with full tanks for a 9:15AM prompt departure
Drive to Caffe Rel in Franklin, NC for an 11:00 AM lunch appointment. This lets us miss the lunch crowd and get back to driving the roads.
Caffe Rel is known as one of the best restaurants in the area whose owner, Richard, is a Porsche owner and auto enthusiast.
Thursday - TBA
Once again we will be at the Riverbend Motel and the Creekwood Resort Campgrounds and Cabins.
The Riverbend has a lot of space for trailer parking and a decent amount of covered parking for the cars. It is a short walking distance to the shops and restaurants of Helen.
Mark from Riverbend has dropped the price again this year to $72.21 per night for our group, effective from Sunday 18th - Thurday 22nd. If you want rooms over Friday, Saturday before and after, standard rates will apply. As of 6/10/2011, they are running $89.99 per night which is much better than the $203/night it was in early June.
For RV's Melissa and Robert at Creekwood Resort are looking forward to us being back this year. They also have some great cabins available if you are more than a party of 2, or can arrange to be.
