Snowbird OHV Open House Sat. May 29th

Hello everyone,
I got an interesting call from the Eddie Franklin (Developer of Snowbird OHV) today wanting to put on a rally if you will from right here at Crawfords Campground and Cabin Rentals. This event is open to all 4x4 vehicles(No ATV/MC's or Rail buggies) and the fee is free to enter the Snowbird OHV park. The entrance will be off of Boiling Springs Rd.(Just about 6 miles from the Campground) where you will get a taste of what they have been building(50 acre rock crawling area as well as other trails. They are trying to increase memberships to this area and this is the best way to advertise. You see before you purchase. I am told there is no limit for this event, but there is a limit to parking at the entrance for vehicles that have to be trailered up. So, the best way is to have registered vehicles that you can drive right from camp.
A couple of interesting facts on us out here trying to survive is that I know serve All You can Eat Waffle breakfasts, we can refill your propane and most importantly we still have the rock garden. Please note that we do not have Gas in the tank, so bring your own.
Please let me know when you make a reservation if you intend on eating Sat night BBQ Dinner so I know how many to cook for as well.

PLEASE POST UP EVERYWHERE YOU CAN ABOUT THIS EVENT, THE MORE CHEROKEE COUNTY SEES THE MORE THEY WILL SEE THE VALUE IN BEING INVOLVED.

I am planning to be there if nothing happens between now and then. I am trying to talk a couple of my buddies to go up with me. Hopefully we can get a big turn out.

Im from Lenoir City and know the area pretty well. Is this place across the skyway or up through cocoka creek mountain a ways. Is this a new snowbird or is it part of the old snowbird that was at hoopers bald near little buffalo?? This is extremely interesting to me since I grew up ridin at tellico. Sorry for the spelling ha ha.
Thanks

This area is known as Little Snowbird and is just to the NE of the old Tellico ORV area. It doesn't go up as high as Buffalo or the Hooper Bald. They plan on accessing it from the Boiling Springs road.

It had to be that weekend... we are racing that weekend near Auburn, AL in the next ECORS race. Man, I wish I could be there for this one. I'm sure you'll have a great turnout since it's free!!

I'm in talks with Eddie to allow this to be a 2 day deal since we have a three day weekend. This is a great opportunity to see this new area as this may be your only shot. They intend for now to remain private and this is your sample. I'm not a member of all of the club forums out there so I'm counting on you guys!

So what exactly is this place? By private is it just a place a guy and his buddies ride? Are they looking at a daily fee like gulches? Or is it a membership type deal? and if so how do you acquire a membership?

Right now they are wanting to expand their membership to 50(They are at 20+/-). The membership is $1000 per year and you can take upto 5 persons with you. You can look at all the details at www.snowbirdanglers.com. In the near future they are wanting to hold comps a couple times a year and maybe let Jeep Jamboree come out. This will give them time and money to build up the park over time.
I think it is important to let everyone see a large crowd at one time, so they can see what they are missing as well as to get the County involved. They are all about pumping tourism up in this area. A little late to dinner if you ask me, but at least with the new guys running the commission they are interested.

We should cross post this to the events folder but I'm a noob here so I'm skeerd to. There is a lot 'up in the air' re:details since the club is looking to expand & diversify. I am very optimistic since I wheeled a small portion a couple of weeks ago. VERY TELLICOISH ... obviously ... except Ranger Dick isn't there to harass us! Needless to say Danny, me & the gang 'll be there. Get that waffle iron ready I can eat about a dozen!

Everybody please post this link to your home forums.

Let's wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeel!

New Information

Just wanted to let everyone know that Eddie Franklin of the Snowbird OHV area told me that since the weekend of this event is on an extended weekend that he is now going to allow entrance into the park Sat and Sun. So, now there is a full weekend available to make the trip worth while!
During my meeting last week, I brought up this event and everyone's ones ears perked up. Commissioner David Wood directed the News Paper to come out and do a story and stated how important it was to get this type of tourism back into this County. Let's make a big show folks!
I'm supposed to take a tour of the area next week and hopefully I can get some pics that will peak up the interest.

I know that this event is free. But after this it will cost $1000 to ride. Is that right?
