We are thrilled to share the news of our Bi-annual Mota Gaam Convention for 2017!  As in 2015, we have chosen a destination city for the Convention.  On July 25, 26, 27, 2017, we will all gather to enjoy the Great Smokey Mountains of Tennessee!  We have selected the Ramada Pigeon Forge South/Smoky Mtn. Convention Center for all of our activities, dining, meeting space, and hotel rooms.  We will post the agenda for the convention on the website soon.

As we did in Orlando a couple years ago, we will be hosting ourselves for this 2017 convention.  We will be responsible for our own individual hotel rooms.    We have negotiated a fantastic rate despite the peak tourist summer season.  The meeting space will be sponsored by the Mota Seva Mandal of USA, which is our own fund.  We are very excited to announce that our fellow Gaam Wala from the state of ALABAMA have stepped up to sponsor all the Food & Beverage Expense during the convention!


Room Rates:

The Ramada Pigeon Forge South is located less a mile from Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede dinner attraction and three miles from Dollywood, the famous amusement park in the Great Smokey Mountains.  There several places for go-carts, mini-golf, waterparks, helicopter rides, bungee jumping, zip-line, etc., nearby as well.  WonderWorks amusement park combines excitement and education.  Or shop until you drop with five factory outlet malls in the area.

The Ramada Pigeon Forge South has set up a room block of only 100 rooms.  All rooms are designated as non-smoking.
