I Still think the kinni is the best option. No locks to worry about, only one no-wake zone, and the Mississippi is a very nice ride up to Prescott. The stretch from Prescott up to the kinni is not too far. Take it slow and stay close to the shore.

Otherwise we can just run up the Mississippi to Hastings then come back to the cove and hang out there till diner time. We could do our parade in Hastings.

That would be our best bet for Sat.


" Take it slow and stay close to the shore. "

Ya know that ain't gonna happen !

I've been put in contact with this StingRay rally coordinator.
She's heading to Florida on vacation but will get back to me in a week.
I'll let you know what she has to say.

How much $$$ is the outing? I tried to reserve feb 3 but reservations section wasn't active yet. How much reservation? And ball park for price for outing minus possible lodging. I've already looked at the new locations hotel pricing as that's all my old lady will do. I love tent camping but i took the fam once and it wasn't a memorable experience.

So, essentially after lodging costs, you're paying your meals, gas & slip rental.  Besides a minor charge to pay the websites bills, we really don't mark anything up, or make a profit, nor do we want to.

There's also nothing that says you have to stay at the casino...if you're on a budget and want to stay at a cheaper hotel, feel free, and you wouldn't have to slip your boat either if you didn't want to pay that fee either.  You could launch each day, beach your boat and then re-trailer it over night.

Everything else is up to you.  There will be a catered group meal Saturday, so your costs will be the group meal + website 'donation' beyond lodging, boat gas, and whatever you decide to do for your other meals.

We'll have more info around April 1st, and hopefully an official price for everything by then.  Gregg's been on top of things so far, and I think it really comes down to picking the food and figuring out the price per boat.

I checked there web site and there's no prices for rooms ...
Prices must change with day of the week, Holidays, etc.
I'll ask Summer for a ball park figure on rooms and if we get a discount or group rate.

About $322 plus tax for the meet.
We have a block of 10 rooms set aside, 8 non smoking & 2 smoking.

Slip rental $25 per day
Launch fee ( Free for campers / RV's / Hotel guests ) $10 per day.


About $155 plus tax for meet.
We have the wooded camp site reserved for the meet.

About $75 to $105 plus tax for meet.

*********************

This is one of our options for a Treasure Island catered Saturday night dinner.

GRILL OUT MENU @ $14.95 PER PERSON PLUS SERVICE CHARGE AND TAX    ....   $75.00 Chef fee for grilling at event.
All beef hot dogs and Burgers served with ketchup, mustard, mayo, lettuce, pickles, tomato, onion, cheese

Creamy style coleslaw
Potato salad

About $17 per person for a catered dinner on Saturday night.


*********************************************


We have been talking with Stephanie of the Stingray group.
In general they seem happy with Treasure Island and have been using them for years as there meet location.
They also rent a large tent ...

 Ripley’s Rental & Sales,

20x40 Pole tent & 400 watt halide light, tent sides with windows. Deliver Thursday am & pick up Sunday or Monday  $395.    (set up tent sides in U shape with opening towards the hotel – blocks music from marina guests.

********************************

Treasure Island will handle all reservation for camping, slips, hotel ...
Which is great for us .. But leaves us with a problem of how do we collect funds to pay for the web site.
I think we all agree that Doran should NOT have to pay for the hosting fee's out of HIS pocket, and all members should contribute the small amount it would take to keep the forum going ...

Were just not sure how to do this ...

Everything sound great to me on the prices. Well in line with what we have been paying.

One question... on the catered meal, how do you plan to collect for the for the payment per person? If you would make people prepay for it a donation for the website and forum hosting fees could also be included.

Not a problem to pay in advance, just put a listing of the charges and I would be happy to send a check, or PayPal, or whatever.  I agree that no one should bear the cost of putting this on.

Set up a Paypal account to collect "membership/website donations"... It easy and works. We can pay whatever fee is needed.

I like this idea. I think it would be nice to have it on the website and left on all year. It shouldn't be just the responsibility of the red wing attendees to pay the bill as many others just use the web site and I think would also be happy to chip in a little. When you reach your goal just turn it off and we are still a non-profit.

Just so we're all on the same page...we're not a non-profit...we're not that organized...that would require tax filings and makes us more of an official organization...liable for 'member's actions, requiring insurance, etc, etc.  We're a group of Glastron enthusiasts who get together on an internet forum and for occasional outings.

We've done the PayPal thing for years, and honestly, it ends up mixing personal funds/bank accounts with club money, and I've never liked that complication.  PayPal & Eventbrite also make us wait for the payments, so for example, Gregg had to front money so that we could pay Island Campground our full bill while Eventbrite sat on the pay out for 3 days after the meet, not fair to him.   Setting up a bank account for the club, presents another whole host of issues.

Gregg and I try to provide leadership & organization while dancing the delicate line of not being too official.  We don't want to make anything besides memories for all.

Enjoy the website?  Think we're doing ok?  PM me for my address...Send me $10-$20 once a year...or at the meet...I'll gratefully accept.

We'll figure it out...but thanks for the ideas.

We DON'T want "memberships" ...
This might be as easy as sending Doran donations and/or putting a donation box on a table at the meet.
If we get to much, we could get a CGOAMN banner or something.

Which bring up one other thing ...
There are no picnic tables in wooded camp site, TI asked if we need tables ...
Not sure if we have to pay / rent them or they will just let use them ?
I have a large fold out table we used for welcome tent last year.
Any one else have any tables ?

I have several tables I could bring.  As for funds for this, that whatever, I am very flexible, just ask how you want me to pay, last year was cash when I arrived. My suggestion of PayPal was simply for advance payments.  I agree, small informal club,  bottom line, what can I do to insure no else suffers a financial hardship based on my obligations?  What do I need to bring for club activities?  I might be a guest to the fine folks of MN/WI, but an willing to help as needed

I'll find out for sure about tables ...
Sound like we have enough to get by.

I'm sure donations by active members will more then cover web site expenses.

So would we just rent a campsite? As you may remember we sleep in the "murder van" suite, so our campsite could be used for a giant grill or something.
