Is this going to be the official FART 2012 thread ? If so I second the request. With mid October under 2 months away a discussion of plans, who is doing what, and so on is probably in order.
The other thread under the topic of ("Interest in Maggie Valley,NC Rally") has a lot of talk going on about FART for this year.
As I mentioned in that post I am volunteering to plan and lead a ride to Maggie Valley on Saturday if anyone is interested. I think Rich volunteered to provide Saturday's evening main meal. I also volunteer to provide other goodies to go with the main course (any other volunteers). As for Friday last year the German Restaurant was great, luckily someone called ahead and made reservations and we were seated right away which could have turned into a long wait.
As for dates, how about the 12,13,14th Oct or 19-21 ?? Our experience last year to arrive on Friday and leave Sunday worked well.

How about it, comments anyone ?

Traditionally it is held at the Asheville East KOA the second weekend in Oct. Every one gets their own site there and then we all meet up Friday there to start the rally off.

I have e-mailed Glenn Hamilton about it but have not heard back from him yet.

I say we make this the official thread and get this started. :clap:

Looks like we are ON for FART the second weekend in Oct at the KOA East in Asheville NC.

I have heard from Glenn Hamilton and he will be making the soup for this year just like he did the past couple years. And I can tell you that he makes the best Borscht I have ever tasted.

See y'all at FART! I've already put in fo the time off from work. We'll get there Thurday to get an early start on our vacation.

Boss approved my request for that Thursday and Friday off. See y'all there Thursday! We're gonna keep it simple and just bring our little pop up tent camper since the bike isn't inspected. No sense draging the toy hauler all that way if the bike isn't streetable.

Have a closer rally the second weekend of Oct, will the FART photos be on this thread (perhaps could have worded that differently)?

I'll have my camera and Lap top with me at FART. No problem to upload pics there atthe campground. Their wifi works pretty good!

Pictures?!? What good are pictures of a FART rally? I mean, don't you need sound? Like, as in "a video of the whole FART". I understand that if you aren't there, you don't get the smells associated with the FART, but at least some video with sound and you can probably use your imagination from there...

Attention all FART goers,
Just wondering how big the crowd will be this year. We are bringing our pumpkin muffins again and trying to figure what size batch to make. Probably some other eats as well.
Wow, time flies. Only 2 1/2 weeks till camp time.
Are we getting the same sites as last year ?? I will be calling this week to reserve mine.

We're planning to come. Todd, in Knoxville, said he has made a reservation.
