Just FYI...for now, I'm booked at the Nichols Inn in Red Wing. 

Its roughly $130/night with all Taxes & Fees...and you can cancel it up until 48 hours before without penalty.  Your credit card isn't charged until then either.  Anyone that wants to join me is more than welcome. 

Their number is:  (651) 388-6633

    I see your tag line is "no longer boatless in Des Moines"  but I hadn't heard what you have now.   And I wanted to mention I posted today about Rathbun 2017 if your interested.

FYI...I did move my reservation to the Nichols Inn.  It's $40/nt less and all I really need is a bed.  Details are posted above.

I still expect to camp...but nice to have a bed on hold if I decide I want it.

I talked to Jennie this morning and I think we have the hotel reservation thing sorted out ...
Tell them your with CGOAMN ...
She'll be send me some info, plus our options for catering.
She would like to see our event itinerary, so that needs to be looked over and changes made if need be.
 
Summer is on vacation, Jennie sent her an email, so I'll talk with her when she get back.

Room discounts ...
Were not getting a discount on rooms, but were "Locked In" at  those rates.
With a wedding (300 people) and up to two concerts (one inside and one outside) , room rate will go as high as $250 per night.

I will update, as I get more info ...
Sorry for all the confusion.

If I can get my trim issue sorted out I'll be there this year. I just need to have the boat actually usable unlike the last few years!

I rented a slip the past two years, but never used it last year.  Was considering just beach parking it like last year, but with a Saturday wedding on the beach, will this be a problem?

Was not a problem before parked both my boats on the beach the last 2 years.

The wedding folks know that its a multi-use beach, and according to Summer, know we'll be there.

Anyone have any idea what time the wedding is, could likely be afternoon, which we would be out anyway.  I probably still need to make reservations for camping, so at least they/we have a count.

The wedding is on Sat. from 3:00 to 3:30 on the beach.
Summer asked if we could be respectful and not pull up to beach, revving motors & throwing empty beer bottles ...
We should all still be at the Kinni around that time, but if you get back early be aware.
Thank you.

Wedding on beach means the outlet should be turned on !
YA ...

Got an email from Jean ...

"The cutoff date is 7/27/17.   On that date we will put any not picked up back in the hotel block to be sold."

If you want a room better book now.

Name tags would be awesome!  Could include person's name & handle on forum, plus boat(s).

    Does the weather report indicate frost in the bowling area?   I know its probably a hassle, but the pizza we used to get at Red Wing(Liberty's I think) was far better, and I didn't need a jacket to eat it.

The best thing about the meet is you can choose to not participate in any activity you don't want to, so if you want Liberty's you're absolutely free to do so!
