Re: 2024 Subaru Alcyone Dragon Meet

Hey now, just wanted to get a few more details about the meet with a few questions, as I've never been to it before:

1) Is most of the action on Saturday and, if so, when do things get under way? It's a +/- 9 hour drive for me, so just wondering, for instance, if there are activities on Friday. If so, I can make the right travel arrangements;

2) Do you do the full 11 mile drive on The Tail, returning to Fontana? I've seen that driving or riding the Tail can be ... a handful ... on the weekends and is very busy.

Very interested in going so figured I'd plan early!

The majority of people arrive Friday, we usually do a drive into town Friday evening to Eat (sometimes we eat at the Restaurant at the Lodge) and hang out and Bench Race.... Saturday we start out washing cars at the Lodge's Free wash station, then we pick a location to do group pics, and go take them. After that we do a Group Drive some kind of Loop always different, but always incorporating "The Dragon" (we generally have lunch on the drive) then a couple hours of free time, if you want to hit the pool of small water park. then Sat. night we either go diner (sometimes this is a Cook out at someones cabin) and hang out . Sunday, most eat breakfast at the Lodge, and say our goodbyes, as some have a long Drive home.

So the main day is Saturday, but best to get there Friday, as once we get rolling Saturday, it will be difficult to catch up with the group during the day.

Hope this helps
