Drivers & Staff – a few last minute notes!
Robbinsville and Graham County are preparing for our arrival next weekend! The mountain has been trimmed and road cleaned. Hotels and rentals are getting ready for our crowd and the merchants are stocking up! Here’s a few last minute notes to help you get started…
ARRIVAL – This Friday, Registration for workers and drivers will be at the THE HUB – The Hub is a coffee shop, restaurant and motorcycle rental that just opened recently at 664 Rodney Orr By Pass in Robbinsville, NC If you come in town on 143 (also called Sweetwater Road) you will come to a light at a T . Turn RIGHT on to Rodney Orr ByPass. The Hub is on the right in less than a mile next to Carquest Autoparts. You can park at Carquest, at The Hub or in front of the next building down.
Drivers – you may pick your spot on the hill AFTER you have been to registration and been tech’ed. NOT BEFORE. Remember that all cars, trailers and tents must be OUTSIDE of white lines on sides of the road per U.S. Forest Services rules (see supplemental rules here.) 7:30 PM is Novice drivers meeting at the Microtel in Robbinsville (If you turn left at T coming into to town, Microtel is immediately to your right). Novice Driver is any one who has not driven this hill before and those driving on a novice permit.
Event Staff – after signing in, we invite you to tour Robbinsville and grab some dinner at any of their eating establishments. If you are a first time worker, there is a brief worker meeting at Microtel at 7:00 PM All workers are invited.
