14th Annual Tennessee Lunch Run - May 2017
The 14th Annual Tennessee Lunch Run
May 27, 2017 (Saturday)
1200 (noon) Central Time Zone
127 Smee Rd.
Crossville, TN 38572
** NOTE THE NEW LOCATION (more info below) **
This lunch run has always been a lot of fun and hopefully will be another great get-together this year as well. Come on up (down, over) to Middle Tennessee in May! And this time no date conflict with the DarkSider’s ride-in.
This year we’re going to try something even different than last year, based on inputs from the last luncheon. As before we’ll still be meeting at Sweetwater the days before for some fine riding, and then doing lunch at the Dragon’s Den Pub & Grill at Deal’s Gap on the Dragon http://www.dealsgap.com/restaurant.htm Lunch is Friday the 26th at 11-ish Eastern Time Zone – early enough to beat some crowds and get afternoon riding in, late enough for those riding in from wherever. And of course the fine Deals Gap Store for your souvenir needs (my wife is hoping they’ve restocked the restaurant T-shirt J)
Important Notice- for those making reservations at the Sweetwater Day's Inn.
Please do NOT use a third-party reservation service such as Kayak, Travelocity, Expedia, etc..
Call the hotel directly @ 423-337-4200
The reservation company’s charge a very high commission rate, and the hotel cannot afford to give us (you) the low rates we have arranged for. Call the hotel directly to get the rates quoted.
For those who stay in Sweetwater at the Days Inn 423-337-4200 we've arranged for a discounted room rate. Queen is 52.99 (60.81), King is 54.99 (63.10) and 2 queens is 62.99 (72.28 (total with tax). Let them know you're part of the Tennessee Lunch Run or Goldwing group. This is a motorcycle friendly hotel; if you need some towels for wiping the bike down just ask at the front desk, they'll bring them to your room. http://www.reservationcounter.com/ho...hotelid=126140
For those who like to camp there is a KOA campground one exit down the highway. http://koa.com/campgrounds/sweetwater/
As before, we're getting door prizes setup and anyone that has something they would like to contribute - please do. You can either bring them with you, or send them to me beforehand (I promise they'll make it to the luncheon ).
** Now regarding the change of address for the luncheon **
Here’s the major change from last year -- after last year’s Saturday Luncheon several of y’all came over to my house for an informal get-together. Got a lot of positive feedback (maybe y’all were just being kind J). Received some requests to skip the Fall Creek Falls buffet and just host it at the house. And that’s exactly what we’re going to do.
Food, cold beverages, horseshoes, motorcycle maintenance in the garage if necessary, farkle comparisons. Even going to fire up our backyard pizza oven and the BBQ for some Build-Your-Own Pizza, burgers, assorted other foods. Nothing fancy, just friendly folks. Address is 127 Smee Rd, Crossville 38572.
And –for those who would like to leaveSunday morning vs. Saturday afternoon after the luncheon – there are a couple of options available for you. One is staying at one of our local hotels, or the other option is staying at my house. I’ve got two guest bedrooms (one spoken for already), a bed in the lanai, couple of pull out couch/beds, and a couple of queen size inflatable beds. And 7400 sqft of driveway and plenty of land for camping and/or a 6-car garage to stay in if it’s raining. Even comes with a hot shower. First come-first serve.
Come one, come all.

Who I was yesterday is but a past memory, who I will be tomorrow is in the future. Who I am now and the type of person I am to others, that is what is important now.
