Hi Bob.
Here are a couple more for you.
As you noted, STAR '02 was at the Majestic Hotel in Hot Springs, AR. The hotel was located at about 109 Park Avenue, on the west side of the street (Majestic Alley is still there, on the north side of where the hotel stood). It closed in 2006, burned in 2014, and was torn down in 2016.
STAR '07 in Asheville was at the Crowne Plaza Hotel and Resort. It is located off of I-240 and US-74 Alt on Resort Drive. This is just a little bit west of the French Broad River, on the north side of the expressway.
STAR '16, at Stratton Mountain Resort was at the Black Bear Lodge on Middle Ridge Road.
I wasn't in the club at the time, but I believe that STAR '87 was at the Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground which is just a little bit south of Cruso. I've been by it many times. The address is 59 Motorcycle Dr, Canton, NC. It shows up on Google Maps, so it appears that it is still in operation. There are a few pics, the address and a telephone number, but it doesn't show a website or any other information about it.
I think that about covers all that I can add.

Peter Spock (I believe that's his name) won the bike from last year's raffle. I've chatted with him on FB a few times.
