2011 Annual Meet Thread
« on: July 25, 2011, 09:54:47 AM »
Friends,
The meet is FAST approaching!  I need your help in getting the registrations in, and getting the word out!  As you know, you can be a part of the largest gathering of Glastron and Glastron Carlson boats in the world!

I would like to make this year a very special event!

Are there things that you are aware of that might make the meet better?  I know that last year there was a Glastron dealer that said we should contact them for support this year.

I'm interested in knowing what your thoughts are on special events at the meet, activities, plans, etc.  This is YOUR meet!  How can it be better?

As always, I would really like to have the reservations in as soon as possible!  I know that this summer has been strange for many of us, but it's not over yet!  Get those reservations in ASAP so that we can properly allocate you slips and space!

Many of you have asked what you can do to help!  THANK YOU!  For those of you who have been to the campground before, you know the things we need!  Feel free to post here what you have and what you can bring.  As you know, in past years it has run very smoothly, so think of the things that you remember and go from there!  Also, you can help by promoting the event!  Get a buzz going, and encourage people to join us!  This year, it's going to be challenging to get our members to come.  We want to let every club member know that we want them to be a part of this event!

I'm very excited to see you all again!  Get those registrations in, and let's have a GREAT weekend!

Brian

I, for one, am one of the many coming...but not yet 'officially' registered (which means...I haven't paid yet...), but...I'll be there!

I know last year there were some law changes that Green & TonkaJim pointed out...anything like that would be a nice reminder.  I never have to think about this stuff on the lakes I boat on...but the river is a different level than I'm used to.

Allan may want to respond to this regarding river rules.
The main 2 things for anyone towing a boat in Minnesota is the new invasive  species laws.
1) All lake weeds must be removed before leaving the landing.
2) All drain plugs must be removed & left out while transporting on public roads.

I'll be there. 19-21. Can't wait!

FYI. If you pay via paypal, when sending the money click the PERSONAL tab then select GIFT. That way Brian does not need to pay the paypal fees. Or just throw in a couple extra bucks to cover the fees.

E-mail sent with info  ;D

I brought way too much stuff last year, I will be down-sizing this year.
I will have a tool box & air pump.
Will you need my deep fryer again this year?

My event suggestions;
Keep it simple & leave lots of free time to visit.
1)Friday night - Dinner, bring a main course for yourselves & something to share - Boat run after supper.
2)Saturday - Breakfast on your own - Group trip to Lake City, own picnic lunch - Supper, Brian's cooking Fried Chicken, Jerry's beans. Bring something to share.
3)Sunday - Break camp - Group trip to 'The Island' for brunch  ;)

OR
I see that you can do it so you pay the fee on your end as well. 3 ways.

Are there things that you are aware of that might make the meet better?


1. My boat fixed up.
2. Gas money for the trip there and back from the north border, and running the boat around.
3. A different weekend. That's the same weekend we go to Itasca for their pioneer show.

I would love to be able to help you with all of these things, but unfortunatly...  I can't  :)

You are always welcome to come down without your boat (to save gas).  Many of our members make trips for a part of the weekend and don't always even bring a boat.  There are MANY people that will be joining that have extra seats for a river run of for a day trip on the water.  Last year we had people join us from 7 different states.  It was a meet to remember, and it's all because people like you are able to join us.  Remember, it's not just about the boat, it's about the fellowship with other Glastron fans!

It's still a 7 hour drive for me, and the camper ('77 GM conversion van) is currently a couple years expired.

I would also like to know the answer to that question as I've got a camper I would like to possibly park Thursday night even though I don't plan on coming until Friday. I sent my reservation info in a month ago and asked that question but never heard back either way.

Yes, We are able to come in on Thursday Afternoon.  I'm keeping track of how many people that will be since I need to make sure that Bob and Margi are prepared for us.

Kip,
I know that Chris Kochman is coming but it sounds like they are not bringing a motorhome, so you should be able to grap his spot with no problems.

Brian - I'm planning on putting the Avalanche right next to the launch like last year if we have that space available again.  Seemed to work well.   We can chat on that Thursday.  I'm getting excited!

I must say after interacting with most you guys more and more, I would like to save up and try to make the meet next year. This year just won't happen for me.  I would like to meet you guys in person. I think Steve (WexRocks) will be there this year. He lives about 15 min from me. I am jealous. Have a great time! and take picture! :P I want to see what I missed.

Also for those of you traveling, I hope you have a safe trip!
