The Thunder Mountain General Store, Nantahala National Forest, 574 Santeetlah Rd, Robbinsville, NC 28771, has extended an offer for a 15 percent discount. This is during the Chasing the Dragon Hillclimb weekend (May 13-14) and applies to SCCA members and Hillclimb participants that spend $10.00 or more at the store (excluding gas or tobacco products). Stop in and mention to Ken and Melissa that you heard about them thru the SCCA and sample their great deli items including breakfast and lunch, snacks/drinks, groceries and souvenirs. Their hours that weekend are Saturday 8 am to 6 pm and Sunday 9 am to 4 pm.
