RUN ON RATHBUN - Summer Kick-Off Headcount
« on: March 18, 2012, 08:53:05 PM »
For those of you with reservations already ...
And for those of you who think you'll make it, but haven't made reservations ...

Please PM me with the following information (and then reply below - "Info Sent").

1)  Your Name (first & last - I'll get your username by the reply)
2)  Your Boat (year, model & name - if your boat has a name)
3)  The Number Of People Traveling/Participating with you (wives, girlfriends, kids, grandkids, neighbors ...)
4)  Your Campsite Number (many of you have moved since making your reservations)

My reasons for requesting the information:
1)  I've only met a few of you at the Minneapolis Boat Show ... I'd like to start pairing real-world names with usernames on the forum.
2)  I'd like to start making small placards for our beach party / boat show - they'll be numbered so people can vote on their favorite ... we're giving away two trophies.
3)  I am working on some free meals.  I've got hamburger lunches on Saturday worked out, this week my target is going to be a steak & potato supper on Friday night after the sunset cruise ... but I need to start with a good approximate so I can gather the appropriate donations.
4)  I'll be fishing at the lake over the next couple weeks and will make an effort to take a picture of your campsite & provide it to you - this way you know what to be expecting.

Thanks for the excitement.  We've got great interest so far.  For those of you who may not be stitched up and water ready by June, you're welcome to come down anyway - there should be more than enough open seats to accommodate friends.

Awesome.  Thanks guys.
Looks like right now we've got 14 boats & approximately 40 people.

Plenty of room on the beaches ... let's get a few more.

Do we need to have State Park Pass in Iowa?  Is there any other Water Regulation out of the norm?

Joe, you're good.
The Corps of Engineers charges a launch fee available in day passes & season passes if you wish to use a ramp other than the two available within the State Park.  There should not be any other fees if you're paying for the campsite.

I will be there for sure.  Either I will pitch a tent at site 105 with the Curran brothers or I'll have a spot with my buddy if he comes.  He bought my CVX16SS which he'd be bringing.

My GT-150 is nowhere near being ready.  I'd love to ride in one though.  Never had mine on the water.

It will be good to see Old Red and Terry again as well as put faces and boats to names I've chatted with.  I was very active on CGOA for years but have been busy with new hobbies the last few years.

See you all soon

Dan - I'm a party of 2.  If my son decides to come last minute, I'll bring a steak on my own for him.

Yessir, Brandon.  We did.  I'm thinking sirloins - they're typically lean enough for most everyone & they cook pretty well over flame.  We're down to about 40, it looks like, after the recent poor weather.

Terry,
I think you may be.  It's been raining out here all day - just an annoying mist.  Temperature for tomorrow is suppose to go up and be in the low 80's for Saturday.  We'll see how accurate those weathermen are.
Thanks for checking in.

Pretty sure one of the NE guys has a camper rented and was cruising over today as well.
