CALLING ALL EAST COAST U.S. M3W OWNERS!

Ya'll...it's time to put our M3W's together with faces and laughs!

M3W Skyline Drive/Blue Ridge Parkway Rally

When: Thurs-Sun, June 13-16, 2019

Where: Skyland Lodge (mile 41 on Skyline Dr.) (https://www.goshenandoah.com/lodging/skyland).
Reservations: 877.847.1919
If booking on-line: insert booking/group code/number ''5AL6S8' (or ask for room block for '2019 Skyland SMERF'

Schedule: TBD (day trip adventures, socials, music, M3W talk) based on your input and the number of folks who commit to attend. Stay tuned!

Local Info: https://www.virginia.org/VirginiaMap.

The Skyline Drive and Blue Ridge Parkway area is M3W driving nirvana!

For anyone traveling a distance or that hasn't visited the Shenandoah Valley or Central Virginia, it's highly recommended to piggyback this rally with a longer vacation. There is enough breathtaking topography, pristine driving roads, fine and casual dining, small town hospitality, music, wineries, brew pubs, Civil War memorials, top universities, deep caverns, hiking trails and even yoga or a chiropractor for the S.O. to make anyone a 'Damn Yankee by birth and a Rebel by choice'!

If you're even on the fence, make a reservation! Skyland Lodge has a wide variety of accommodations but they sell out quickly.
Cancellation fee is only $15.00 until three days before the event.

GROUP BOOKING CODE: 5AL6S8

Traditional Room - Two Queen Beds Thurs: $135 Fri/Sat: $144
Preferred Room - Two Queen Beds Thurs: $170 Fri/Sat: $189
Premium Room - Two Queen Beds Thurs: $195 Fri/Sat: $225

Check-in: Thurs., June 13, 2019, 3:00 pm
Check-out: Sun., June 16, 2019, 11:00 am

Dining Information:
- Full service restaurant and tap room. Dining is first come, first served
- Breakfast 7:30 to 10:00 am; Lunch 12:00 noon to 2:00 pm; Dinner 5:30 to 9:00 pm
- Mountain taproom 2:00 to 11:00 pm. Last call 10:30 pm

M3W Owners Dinner: Saturday evening. $35 p/p, inclusive, or order from menu

P.S. Without precedent, it's hard to predict participation numbers. Once we have a feel for that, we'll plan the itinerary. Please spread the word early and speak up with suggestions!
All M3W enthusiasts welcome.

Volunteer Coordinator,
Mike (06032)

After speaking with Mike, I understand this event is open to all Morgan owners who are fans of M3Ws. I can't resist the opportunity to drive my '59 Morgan Plus 4 on Skyline Drive and check out some M3W's, so I'm in.

Jeff, nice to chat with you. Absolutely!

While the primary goal is to encourage as many M3W's out of the woodwork as possible, this venue is too perfect to not share with our local, four-pawed caged siblings who are potential converts to true motoring!

Here's a quick link to potential driving routes and day trip destinations: Best Scenic Drives

And some basic information about directions and access to Skyline Drive: Shenandoah Valley and Skyline Drive Directions

Plus some ideas for side trips, activities and extended excursions inside the Shenandoah National Park itself: Shenandoah National Park Shenandoah National Park

It really doesn't get any better than this for M3W's (and friends)!

UPDATE - happy to report that Emil Rolando of 'Morgancustom.net' is planning to attend and will lead a discussion on the merits of oil cooling the M3W. This should be lively. He is also offering free installation of his kit on site to anyone that purchase one at the rally! So we'll schedule his session early.

I just checked online for reservations for Skyland Lodge. It shows no availability at all for June and July. Is this right?

No. We have a block of at least 15 rooms reserved and last I spoke to them two weeks ago, room for more. Did you use the Group codes?

Snafu with the on-line registration corrected. Give it 24-48 hours to be live again. If you registered without it, please give them a call to move you into the group.

In addition to Emil, I'm talking with Phil Beazley, Cocomats and MMC about participation.

Folks, I posted this in the M3W section so please go there for all future updates.

As of today, May 1st, Skyland Lodge reports only six (6) confirmed reservations using the '5AL6S8' Group Code. I know more are coming that made individual reservations. Please, if this is YOU, give the hotel a call at 877.247.9261 and have your reservation tagged to the group number. This is the only way we'll get an accurate headcount estimate for the fun stuff!
