November 19, 2016 Club Ride to Rocky Top

Our November Club ride will be on Saturday, November 19, 2016. We will leave the lower Miner Shed across from the General Store at 9:00 am. All riders must sign the Club waiver and have a land use permit for Windrock Park. Make sure you have the land use permit. You never know when we all could be stopped and check for our permit. Remember no alcohol is permitted on these rides.

We are headed to Rocky Top to support their town. ALL RIDERS MUST WEAR A HELMET. Our first stop will be the Police Station to get a permit to ride on their streets. The cost of this permit is $5.00 for each rider per year. You will need a valid driver's license to get the permit. The rules read that ALL RIDERS need a permit but we aren’t sure how minors with no license can have proof. So just ask while you are there, if you have minor(s) riding with you. During the time that those are getting permits, we can visit the little Coal Creek Miners Museum. It is free but they do ask for donations. It’s a small place but they are planning on making it bigger with the money that they receive from donations.

We will eat lunch at Rocky Top and there are several places to eat or if you want you can bring your own lunch. A time will be set for everyone to meet up again and then we will head back up on the mountain. (If the place is crowded that you would like to eat at, you might consider the time you have to eat.) We will ride some trails that some of you haven’t ridden before. This ride will be a moderate ride and will be an all-day ride. We encourage everyone to look over their machines and make sure you can make this trip. We will be a good ways away from the Windrock Park parking lot. So make your plans and hope we get some rain.

If you have any questions, post them on here…

Re: November 19, 2016 Club Ride to Rocky Top

To my understanding, you can only get the Rocky Top permit at Rocky Top. This permit is a stand alone permit and not the same as others. Our first stop into Rocky top will be to get the permit. Since we will be there on the weekend, we will go to the Police Department to get the permit. Again, everyone must wear a helmet and must buy the 5.00 permit to ride in Rocky Top. This just shows this little town that we support what they are doing for the ATV Community. If you go during the week, go to the Town Hall, just in front of the Police Department.

Just to be clear... since we are not riding on any part of Royal Blue, you will not need a permit for that...

Re: November 19, 2016 Club Ride to Rocky Top

There have been fires around on the mountain and for sure the back side of the mountain has been burning for a while now. Just this past week or so, there have been fires as close as T22, T2-T16. I’m sure there have been others. Since we continue to have “NO RAIN” it could only get worse and the possibilities of more fires will continue to grow.

Just so everyone knows, it's not only the fires/smokes that will be a big problem on this ride but since we haven't had rain in a really long time, the trails are REALLY dusty. (Much worse than at the Fall Jamboree?) We will have to ride a lot of gravel to get to Rocky Top which means a lot more dust than normal. We don't want you to come and not be aware of the dusty and smoky conditions. We are keeping a close watch on the weather but so far we aren’t seeing enough rain if any, to help with these conditions. If you have anytime type of breathing issues, they are advising everyone to stay indoors because of the smoke. When you add dust too, that can be really hard on a person.

Also, everyone must have a Windrock Land Use Permit, sign the Club Waiver, wear a helmet and buy the permit at Rocky Top once you get there. As a reminder, no Alcohol is allowed on the Club Rides. If you are searched or don’t follow the rules above, you can be asked to leave the ride. Please understand that we ALL can be searched at Windrock Park and/or Rocky Top at any time to make sure we have what is needed and following the rules.

This will be the last Club ride of the year and we hate that the conditions are going to be as they are. Maybe if we all do the “rain dance” the conditions will improve before the ride…

We also need to remind everyone that there is a drivers meeting at 8:45 eastern time that you must attend. We will pull out promptly at 9:00 am eastern. In order to make this ride as planned, we have to leave on time. Be unloaded and have your permit ready by 8:45 eastern time.
