Default Team Thrembo Will Be In Eastern Tennessee (etc) October 1-6th

Greetings. We will be based in Sevierville in the Knoxville/Pigeon Forge area from October 2-6. I believe at this point we will have one featured course every day, then some bangers. On the way up Etowah. On Oct 2nd we should be playing the Claytons. Oct 3rd Harmon Hills. 4th Panther and maybe Kiwanis. 5th probably Knoxville courses and on the way out Fontana Village Resort.

Local insight is always welcome and if anyone is available to throw and guide while we are there, that would be awesome! Especially for Harmon Hills.

Throw blue, pink, and white....all your brightly colored discs are going to disappear in the brightly-colored leaves.

Looks like an awesome week lined up.

Double check with Claytons. I thought they were only using 9 holes currently. I may make the trip from Asheville for 10/3. Have not been to Harmon in over a year.

Fontana Dam? Sliding through the Tail while you're there?

Yes, if that's what you call it! It will be our 1st NC course. Also going to try and get a Virginia course while we are there.

I meant Deals Gap. It's for autos, not frisbees. I just don't know anyone that has visited that area that isn't planning to run the Tail of the Dragon.

That drive is miserable in a vehicle. About 45 minutes of nothing but hairpin turns. Hope you have good brakes and aren't riding with people who get carsick.

It's the most direct way from Fontana to Knoxville, so can't really avoid it unless you want to add a bunch of extra time taking an easier drive.

Cool. Let me know as it gets closer and we can pm phone numbers and confirm the exact date if you come over. Looks like the Claytons has only 9 holes playable right now. Might hit it anyway. Seriously considering not playing Fontana Dam on this trip now. (Thanks DGCR'ers!)
