We will be holding our Saturday evening dinner across the street from the Helendorf Inn, in the confines of Paul's Steakhouse overlooking the Chattahoochee River. Current plans are that we will be inside the lounge. City regulations do not allow anyone under 21 to enter the lounge or any area where alcohol is served, even just to eat. There is a regular dining room and a deck overlooking the river, but the lounge is the only area that is large enough to accommodate the expected 30-40 attendees.

We will be requesting that you register your intent to eat on our registration form. In order to group us together as closely as possible, I must call them while we're out on our run.

Still got the group rate.

I look forward to seeing everyone.

Is there a real rough agenda for this event? Does anyone get together on Friday evening, or Sunday morning?

Thanks!

Friday is generally the arrival time and check in. Get your drivers route sheet and fill out the registration form. Registration is basically for restaurant seating information. Everyone is on their own for dining on Friday. Drinks not recommended. Check out your car and be sure it's safe and fueled up before going to bed. Socialize and check out everyone else's cars.

Saturday morning 8AM to 8:30 is the driver's meeting and briefing. We expect to depart by 9AM with those wishing to be most aggressive leading the way, followed by the conservatives then the sightseers.

Saturday lunch at a pre-arranged restaurant. Approximately noon.

Saturday evening dinner at a pre-arranged restaurant. Approximately 6:30

Drawing for door prizes and presentation of awards.

This is the end of organized activities. Sunday is generally departing and the return trip home.

A reminder to bring an FRS radio for communications while traveling. They can be had at WalMart and don't have to be expensive unless you just want the best.

If anyone plans to order an event t-shirt, you must do it online. They won't be sold at the event.

I am regrettably going to have to cancel my trip to RFTH. I was hoping to have the car ready by now. That did not happen. On top I am trying to be ready for my wedding in Maui in Oct. So i have to redirect funds to the more important trip...... NO not the RFTH trip, i was referring to the wedding in Hawaii.

I will be canceling my room tomorrow. So if anyone needs a room slot! I had a water side patio room. I think was 149 a night.

We were discussing pictures of the event on our forum and one of our members had a good idea. Because most of our people will have their hands full trying to host all of you, our guests, and to keep things moving, they will have little time to take pictures.

It was suggested that after the event, everyone post their pictures here through whatever means you want to use. Use links to your photo albums as long as you make the album public. Use PIP, photobucket, imageshack, google+. or Georgia Fiero's image poster. We would like whatever method you use to be permanent so that the pictures don't eventually show up as little broken boxes or red X's.

With everyone sharing their pictures, you get so many different aspects of the event. So many different views, including people behind the cameras. Pictures taken where everyone or one person can't be present. We will try to pull those together into a file and put them onto a CD or thumb drive. I would expect the file to be too large to send as an attachment. I know there are ZIP files, but if your computer is like mine, (W10) it thinks I don't really want to see what's in the ZIP file and no amount of beating on it will make it show me.

Saturday evening, the RftH is over, everyone is tired and happy that we all had such a good time!
Two cruises, one for the laid back, winery tour folks, one for the corner carvers. Lots of smiles all around. Several very nice door prizes, lots of good food and old friends, new friends, putting faces together with Forum names.
And the Dragon twice, there and back again!
Thanks from Capitol City Fieros to the Georgia Fiero Club for hosting the get together.
Let's do it again next year!

Thank you all. It was good to see old faces, both the long timers and the old timers. Frank Martin, thanks for being one of the originators of Run For The Hills. Others who've been long time RFTH people, Mariann Martrin, (hope I spelled that correctly), Tom Corey, David and Kim Hunter, and Raymon Otero who made a cameo appearance. Hope to see more of you, Ramon. Phil and Gwen (Phil's Wife) welcome back. Bring a Fiero next time.

Accolades to Pat 'CoCoFiero', his wife and son for coming all the way from Canada to join us. Hope the event was enjoyable enough that you'll return. Capitol City Fieros from Michigan, we were happy to see your group again. Always regulars.

There are many others that need to be thanked but I can't remember. I'm tired, sick and as soon as I finish my coffee, I'm headed to bed.

Good day, everyone.

We just got home, a few minutes ago.

I'd like to thank all the folks who worked so hard to organize this. (Charlie, Pat, Linda, Ron, etc., etc.)
I'd also like to thank everyone who came to join us. Some from many hundreds of miles away.
It was good to put faces to all the names. I'm sorry I didn't get to speak with everyone.
And thanks to all the sponsors!
Rodney, TLG, Fiero Store, Autozone, and all of the individual private contributors.
Y'all rock!

This is the only picture I had the opportunity to take. This is the beginning lineup. There were a couple more cars that came in afterward. There was also a number of attendees that came in other vehicles who didn't participate in either of the runs. The couple in the Acura NSX came all the way from the Chicago area to run with us.


Many of the people may still be on their way back home. I know some were headed on a road trip to other areas and may be posting later. Some of our members don't use PFF or PIP so for the moment, you can see some pics and videos posted on our website.

This year's RFTH was based in beautiful Helen, in the North Georgia mountains -- the place to be if you're from Germany, and miss home.


My brother came all the way from Dallas, TX for the event. He stopped for catfish along the way.

Take a trip up and back down the Dragon...

I would like to add another sponsor. One who brought in some nice goodies when he arrived Friday evening. He was also a major contributor to our Warrior Project.

Thank you Jediperk.

Thank you Georgia Fiero Club for putting on this great event! Great to meet so many nice Fiero enthusiasts. We had an excellent time, not only on the weekend, but the trip there and back as well. Such a beautiful part of the country. Would be cool to have more Canadians join the convoy next year.
