Weekend Getaway – Western North Carolina – April 25-27, 2014
We are glad to be returning for another Weekend Getaway this spring in the scenic mountains of western North Carolina. The event will again be held at the beautiful Fontana Village Resort located in Fontana Dam, NC, so mark your calendars now for the weekend of April 25-27. This beautiful and historic resort is nestled in the hills of beautiful western North Carolina and adjacent to the towering Fontana Dam along NC 28 (N35 26.218 W83 49.468).
Arrive in time to join us for a welcome reception on Friday night with hot hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar where you will see many of your friends and no doubt make some new ones too. We’ll have the MOA Foundation’s Smart Trainer there to help you sharpen your skills. Information will be available about the area and points of interest you may want to visit while there. We’ll have details and information on several rides / tours that will be available on Saturday. Riding opportunities are almost endless in this area and include the favorites Deal’s Gap, The Cherohala Skyway and the Blue Ridge Parkway. We’ll have several street rides to choose from as well as a guided GS for those who like to get off the beaten path.
Ride the area or relax at the resort on Saturday but make sure you are back in time for dinner! We will gather again at the lodge for a social time and dinner where you can share all your experiences of the day with your friends!
Your event fee of $89 per person includes the Friday night reception, Saturday night catered dinner along with a special gift at check-in and your chance at some great MOA merchandise and door prizes that will be given away.
There are a variety of accommodations available including lodge rooms and cabins. RV and tent camping sites are available and located nearby at the base of the huge dam. Lodge room rates are $85 + tax per night and both king and twin bed rooms are available on a first come basis. We have also reserved several “Azalea” two bedroom cabins that will provide ideal accommodations for two couples. Contact the resort directly for discounted cabins and camping rates. Please note that due to the popularity of Fontana Village, the resort will strictly enforce its reservation cancellation policy. Please be aware of the policy when reserving your accommodations as the BMW MOA will not be responsible for cancellation fees charged by the Village.
Registration begins in January. Check the BMW MOA website for details in the New Year!

As you can see this one has all those desired elements and is going to be a great time! The total group size is limited 100 participants so book early to reserve your spot. We look forward to seeing you there!
