October get together?
« on: September 16, 2014, 01:03:44 PM »
The idea has been thrown around for a fall get together. Thoughts for a location are the following, Branched Oak Lake, Carter Lake or even the Missouri River(if we all trust our boats(i sure don't at the moment!)). Dates are wide open at this point so please throw them out there.

I have sent a PM to all Nebraska members so please place your response here.

Thanks

October's booked.  2 college visits on 2 different weekends, both out of state, a trip to Tenn. to look at a production company, and then the big work project that has eaten up my entire existence for the last 10 months...can't wait to be done with it.

I'm open, would like to meet more Nebraska members, not sure about the river, never had my boat on that.  Matt is playing football so either a Saturday afternoon or a Sunday would be best.

      Carter lake and Branched Oak are both decent spots to go.   Carter lake has one side of it is No Wake, so floating is good.  The river is unique, and water flows are expected to be high for some time due to rain in the upper Mo basin.   Heavy rains that plagued the river earlier this season have, hopefully, ended, so debris are not an issue.   Manawa has a nice shallow cove type area that we have partied in for years, but October weather could be cooler, OK for boats, not so OK for swimming/wading.   Manawa has the advantage of having a ramp into the river as well as ramps into the lake.  I dont fear the river, but if my boat had running issues, I would simply make sure I had a good anchor.   A day trip get together sounds like fun, I wont be winterizing untill probably Halloween anyway.

Well, I am going to throw out a couple weekends and see what would work better for you. I am thinking either the weekend of the 11th and 12th or the 25th and 26th of October. I think hitting a lake would be better than the river. Would Carter Lake work best for everyone or would Branched Oak? For amber and I we would have to drive so it doesn't matter to us.

Just found out that Amber and I will be in Omaha the weekend of the 11th for a baby shower on Saturday. So how does Sunday the 12th at 1:30 or 2 sound to meet at the launch at Carter Lake? And have the 25th and 26th as our fall back dates?

Mike what launch do you suggest meeting at?

Hi folks...just introducing myself here.

Name is Matt and I live just north of Omaha.  Bought a pretty decent 1974 CV 16 year and a half ago.  Was in decent shape..a true barn find from Oklahoma.  Just REAL dirty and a few minor mechanical issues from sitting idle for so long.

Anyway, just wanted to say "hi" and that I look forward to meeting you all down the line.  Brandon was kind enough to invite me to the Oct. 12 outing at Carter Lake. 

Right now I have the fuel tank out as I am switching out the steel for a new plastic one...AND will be at kids football game in the am.  So it's most likely a no go. Rain check?

Sorry...kind of all over the board on this one!  ;D

Have a good one!

Matt

Dinner sounds good as long as we're home in time for the Season Premier of The Walking Dead!

Weather for next Sunday is not looking very promising. I hope it changes.

      Biters are on at 8pm, buts it gets dark pretty fast after 7pm anyway, so making that time frame should not be an issue.  I would hope to be back on the trailer by 7ish anyway at the latest.  Now if we consider being somewhere for dinner at 6:30ish, that could work also.   I will plan to be out there after lunch.   Not that big a lake, not hard to find everyone.  Looking forward to it.

Going to put the battery on the charger, hopefully it will start up on Sunday.  The old boat has been a garage queen this summer, only had it out a few times.  Sunday looks cool but 65 may be the best we get this year.  Do you access the north ramp from the Airport side or do you have to go through the residential areas?

See you on Sunday.
