Default Club trip to Mulberry Gap

We are gauging interest in a trip to Mulberry Gap for the club. It would be a situation where we'd choose a weekend and you'd be responsible for making your own reservation. Just understand that this would be during prime riding season at a destination just 1.5 hrs outside a major metro area of over 6 million people, so reserve early if you want to guarantee a bed or campsite. Mulberry Gap, for those that haven't heard of it, is essentially a bed & breakfast for mountain bikers, just north of Ellijay, GA in the Cohutta Mtns.
www.mulberrygap.net
There are world class trails right out the front door and more great trails within 1-1.5 hr drive. There is a 2-night minimum stay, so that would likely be Friday and Saturday nights. Personally, I'd like to leave early Friday morning to get there in time to ride Friday, but I'm sure some won't be able to leave until later Friday. The plan would be to ride Saturday and early Sunday before heading home. I'm thinking maybe ride Mulberry Gap Friday and Saturday, then ride Bull Mountain on Sunday.

The cost to stay at MG is $83-93/nt for a bunk in a cabin or $28/nt for a campsite. Rates include a huge, delicious breakfast and dinner. Please vote which dates work best nominate another weekend that works. We'll leave the pole open for 10 days and put it on the books for the weekend with the most votes. You can vote for more than 1 weekend if multiple weekends work.

April 17th-19th would be the only weekend I could make work. Pryor obligations rule the other two weekends out for me. I have to have more seat time before I make a trip like this though.

I'm looking at doing a few of the Mississippi MTB series races this year. 3/29 and 4/19 are the first two making Apr 10-12 considerable. Depending on the decided weekend and barring any family commitments, I may choose MG.
