Rathbun 2015 date
« on: January 06, 2015, 06:07:54 PM »
With Doran running the Red Wing Meet, I have volunteered to handle the setup for the Meet at Rathbun.


Last year we as a group decided to to have the meet the second weekend of June. So with this I am for keeping it the second weekend in June as the regular time frame of the Rathbun get together.

So the dates are as follows.

June 11th - 14th
Honey creek state park  - South Campground

Itinerary will be posted at a later date and Camp site reservations will be open March 11th cabins be reserved as of today.

Thank you,

Brandon

     Thanks for taking this on, I was curious to know the details of the meet.   Likely I will be looking at a camp spot near the one I had last year.   Always a good time at Rathbun, lets hope for decent boating weather.   We will try to make this meet on Thursday and leave Sunday morning as we have in the past, seems like Friday has been the decent weather.  I would consider Lunch at the resort a highlight, and if we have beach area, then a beach cookout is fun also.  I WILL bring a chainsaw this time, firewood was plentiful last year if you could cut it.    Let me know if you need any help.  You might want to post a link to this thread on the open discussion so others can be updated.    Thanks, Michael.

Pretty sure you can't just fire up a chainsaw and cut up fallen trees, etc Mike.  It is a Park/Nature area after all, pretty sure that will earn you an expensive memory from the weekend...

Thank you for the input Mike! I am thinking right now Friday will be group meal at the lodge for lunch, and then picnic on the beach saturday for lunch. The one we went to in 2012 by the dam (weather and water levels permitting of course).

Hey Brandon, Thanks for picking this up.  Things have been hectic getting use to life with an infant.  That, and Courtney's dad recently passed away giving us reason to be in Texas.  Most of you know that I sold the boat when moving to KC ... our house in Centerville is still for sale, and we're crossing fingers on having it sold soon ... but having to rent, we didn't have storage for a boat, nor any idea how we'd get time away to go use it.

It might be worth my trip up from KC, even without a boat, to visit for the weekend.

Here is a Rough Schedule for the weekend. All dependent on weather, water level, ect. of course.

Thursday

Set up camp, Supper on your own.

Friday

Breakfast on your own.

Launch boats, morning lake run.

Lunch at the Honey Creek Resort (around noon if we can)

Nothing really planned for the afternoon. Float time, cruising, hanging out on the beach below the campground (if there is one) what ever you want to do its your time.

Supper on your own


Saturday

breakfast on your own

Launch, beach, float what ever you want to do. Just hang out and enjoy the company.

Lunch
Picnic at the beach. The one in the cove with the main marina at the east end of the lake.

Afternoon cruise and flotilla time.

Supper on your own.

Free time

Sunday

Breakfast on your own.

Pack up camp

Say goodbyes, make one last run on the lake if you want.


If anyone has any other ideas Please feel free to share.

Thank you

Just a FYI from our camp.  Connie and I intend to leave early Thursday.  We plan to arrive at Rathbun around lunchtime, set camp, have a bite, then be on the water.  I will bring my laptop and projector, Tim(makinwaves) is bringing a PC audio system and "live and let die". We have a screen, but afraid to use it outdoors so would prefer a big white sheet and rope should anyone have such available.  If anyone has any glastron related movies, clips, or such your welcome to bring them.  Might throw a quick photo slide of the day if ithers wish to offer digi photos.  Slight variation to the typical campfire night.  Anyway just a thought, looking forward to seeing everyone, and let's pray for good weather.

I will definitely be there, not sure which boat I'll have, but I will be there. 

Can't finish up the 'Big Girl' b/c the PO 'misplaced' the brass screws that hold the impeller cover on, so I haven't been able to run it yet...oh, and it doesn't have a floor yet.

Goldie can be pulled together in a pinch with Joe's tank and some hose rerouting, so that's plan B right now.  I expect to be down Thursday night, but have to head to a meeting Friday afternoon, returning Friday night.  Not 100% sure which part of the family will be around when...this weekend will be a bit haphazard for us.

Hey all, I post this with a heavy heart, but, my grandmother passed away on Monday of this week and the funeral is Friday morning so we will be arriving late. Funeral is at 10am so we will hope to be at the campgrounds by mid afternoon Friday. See you all then.
