NASSIR 7 General Information
NASSIR 7 (North American Steve Saunders International Rally) will be held Tuesday July 8th through Thursday July 10 with early arrival activities on Monday July 7th at the Fontana Village Resort in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina. A few of us will be arriving on Sunday July 6th as well. Come join us in the fun, meet old friends, make some new ones and create some priceless memories in the process!!!
  • Fontana Village Resort, 300 Woods Road, Fontana Dam, NC 28733
  • Reservations by phone only at 1-800-849-2258 and for our Canadian neighbors you will have to dial direct at 1-828-498-2211
  • Group: NASSIR 7 Rally (Note: try to get them to assign you a specific room number if you can, look at the layout below)
  • Room Block has been removed and the room prices have gone back to their regular rates of $109 and up....the $89 group rate we negotiated is no longer available.
Overflow Camping: Kickstand Lodge Motorcycle Campground (12 miles from Fontana), for reservations please email [email protected] or call 828-479-6069, their website is

Below you will find four (4) images for your use;
  • the information flyer for your records or printing and passing out to your friends
  • a letter from your hosts about room reservations and their importance in helping make NASSIR 7 a success.
  • a room layout chart to help you pick that perfect spot (if it hasn't been grabbed yet!).
  • a handy weather information chart
  • Wi-Fi - I am very happy to report that Wi-Fi has been increased to the entire Main Lodge now. So all of the rooms in the Main Lodge have Wi-Fi as well as the Mountview Restaurant and Bearís Den Bar. There are also Hot Spots at the Pit Stop, General Store and Wildwood Grill.
  • Cell Phone Reception - The Verizon Wireless Cell Service hot spots are in the Lodge Lobby, the restaurants, the Pit Stop and the General Store. AT&T is almost non existent.
  • Pet Policy - Here is the link to the Pet Policy that can be found on their website here. You will see that the rooms do not allow pets and only a few of the cabins allow pets with a $150 fee. Pets are allowed in the camping area.
  • Onsite Overflow for Camping - Unfortunately they canít allow tent camping anywhere other than at the campground. They have 10 tent campsites and 10 hook up sites, so hopefully we wonít run in to that problem. There are a couple of campgrounds that are fairly close to the resort if in worst case scenario (still researching this).
  • In room Coffee makers are not available however, they provide coffee in the main lodge lobby 24 hours/per day. A few personal coffee makers may also find their way to the pool side Cabana rooms as well.
  • The rooms do not have mini-fridges in them however there are several ice machines available so please plan accordingly.
  • Wheelchair access rooms are available and the bathrooms in these rooms have rails however the tubs are step or lift in and not roll in shower stalls.
PLEASE be sure to read all of the information as it will help to avoid misunderstandings and/or failed expectations. More detailed information concerning events will be posted as we progress with the planning over the next few months. If you have any questions or suggestions or if you would like to volunteer to be on one of our teams of "helpers" please feel free to post them here or drop either Dubswing or myself a PM and we will try to respond right away!

Well we missed N6 (don't ask). So we've already reserved a room at the resort for N7. Hotel rate is $89 plus tax for the rally.

Reservation made, arriving Sunday July 6, received a confirmation email for my stay. Room 124. Looks like a neat place for this event. Looking forward to riding the Dragon both ways. (Did it one way at NASSIR 1)

Reservations made, I am in room 121 while yes one of the upstairs rooms would have been nice, the price was right for me. So all of you rowdy characters who will be utilizing the pool, will need to keep the noise down while I get my beauty sleep! :ROFL:

This really does look like an awesome resort and a great place to hold NASSIR. I am so looking forward to finally get to another NASSIR, since I have had to miss the last two.

QDaddy, glad to see that you're going to be there. Looking forward to seeing you again, it has been too long. :waving:

Hey there Don, the rate for a basic room is $89 and goes up from there, $129 and up and from my understanding those rooms are well worth the money.

I have faith that your surgery and recovery will go fine and that I will see you at Diggers and then Nassir next year. :)
