Title: Lake Rathbun, Centerville IA, Glastron meet
Post by: Plugcheck on December 19, 2017, 03:18:30 PM
We had some discussion recently about a lake Rathbun meet being moved back and held 2nd weekend in June.  Considering the 7th through Sunday the 10th of June.  Any interest?

I like June, but would be more in favor of the weekend of the 23rd or maybe the 16th figure the later it is the better the weather could be.
But would be more interested in seeing a larger group there so whatever works for the most people

Well, the 23-24th weekend could work for us, but we thought that weekend was too close to July 4th for  others to make it.  The 16-17th is a 3rd weekend of the month and Tim camps with a camping group every third weekend.  I'd like to see a larger group as well, but I have not heard from anyone else.  Very preliminary work right now, just seeing who is interested in going.

Barring any major complications we would make it to any of those weekends

No reason any of the June dates won't work for me.  The MN meet on the other hand...that's a problem.

23rd-24th is probably better for us.

Appears to be some interest, should we go back to camping at honey Creek state park?  Most everyone is familiar with that location.

We should try to nail down the date and get it on our calendars, looks like thereís only a few of us interested at this point. I did really like being able to be in a slip at honey Creek, so that would be my pick. Looks like the dates we talked about are the 7th and the 23rd, there is a huge party on the river in Stillwater the weekend of the 23rd but that wonít stop me from coming if thatís the decided day, as I stated earlier whatever is going to get the most people there.

June 22, 23, and 24th are the set event days for Rathbun 2018.  The Marina and office doesn't open till April so I have to wait a little to make reservations.  Connie and I plan to arrive on the 21st(Wednesday) to make for a longer stay since we take the RV.  We have enjoyed the amenities of the Marina, the restaurant has some great food, the boat slips are convenient, especially for a moonlight cruise(88% wax gib) on Saturday night.  Rathbun is a nice lake with plenty to see and do, hope to see a good turnout.

      You might be able to leave your boat either in a slip or over where we store trailers for no cost.   Would make day tripping a lot easier if you didn't have to drag the boat both ways.  Just an idea

Yes, that's kind of what I was thinking as well.  Plus, if I get there late, I can always find you guys...its a big lake, but not that big...
