2019 12th Annual CGOA meet is going to be at Treasure Island Resort and Casino in Red wing, MN again this year. August 15-18, 2019

Please get your hotel, marina slips, and RV park reservations booked ASAP. There will be 2 concerts events, one on Friday the 16th and one on Sat the 17th. Most likely there will also be the Music On the Mississippi like last year with a band playing in the marina (free to attend).

All reservation's are under Classic Glastron.
15 Hotel rooms are reserved. Book early!
4 Marina slips are reserved, 48ft x 18ft slips, $30 a boat for the slips (4-6 boats a slip depending on size) If you want your own slip then you will pay the rate for the slip. Reserve NOW. There is already a limited number of slips available (17).
3 RV sites have been reserved.
There is also plenty of tent. Camping available as well.

In speaking with the staff the marina & hotel will most likely sell out immediately once the concert announcement has been made. Announcement is going to be made sometime with in the next 30 days.

Hope to see you all again this year!!!!

Pay for camp sites and boat launch at gas dock.
Boat launch is included with camp site or hotel room.
Key to shower rooms is included with camp site.
There is not water or electricity down by camp sites, But is by rest room/showers.
With camp site or hotel room you can park boat on beach over night.
More then one boat will fit in large slips, T.I. is OK with that.
We park empty trailers on south end of camp site.
If you like to keep your boat on trailer at night, you can park it by your camp site.
Bring some fire wood if you have room in back of your truck, TI has fire wood but they charge for it.
If your new to boating on the Miss. and St.Croix rivers, ask around for some one that you can follow.
It's marked well, but easy to get into wing dam's or lose sight of marker buoys.
If you have never been thru a lock, also ask about it. Pretty easy if you know what to do.

For anyone new to MN. here is the 2018 Boating Guide and other info Hope it the same as the 2019 version ..

MN. info page ..
https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/regulations/boatwater/index.html

2018 Boating Guide ..
https://files.dnr.state.mn.us/rlp/regulations/boatwater/boatingguide.pdf

PLEASE do NOT park trailers or car/truck in parking lot above camp area.
PLEASE do NOT park cars / trucks / trailers on mounds by camp sites. They are burial mounds.

Any one care to add to this .. let me know

The fuel dock/convenience store was not manned full time last year, kind of frustrating to walk down there to find them closed.  Might have been a staffing issue?  The office at the RV park can provide all the same functions, and is much easier to stop in before the trek down to the campsites.

Shawn might know for sure ...

I think .. There isn't a rest room in the gas dock, so if only one person there, they have to lock up and use the rest room on shore.
I think .. On weekends there are two persons on gas dock.
Didn't know there was an office by RV site.

We booked a room at the hotel this morning for Friday / Saturday night.  We went outside the room block reservation, as we needed a handicap accessible room.  We are in the Buffalo tower (at $174 & $219 with AAA), which ends up a little cheaper.  AAA gets you a 10% discount (offset the crazy taxes and fees a bit anyway).  We will probably just leave our boat on the beach overnight.

Yes during the week there is usually only one person working and they are doing multiple things.
I think this has become an addiction.

The RV office is in the building between the camper lot and the new parking area.  Not sure if there is a walking cut through to the primitive area.  I've found it easier to stop there and get paid up, shower cards, etc than chasing down the staff.  They have a coin laundry and ice as well if anyone needs.  It's also the last stop on Sunday heading out.

Hey everyone. New glastron owner here. 2019 GT205. I was recommended this event from a fellow glastron owner. Where should I book. What are some recommendations besides treasure island. And what is the boat slip scenario. Do I purchase one through the marina for the weekend? How much is it. I want to book asap so all the help would be great. Thanks

Thanks. I plan on booking anytime now. Called earlier and they still had rooms available.

I hoping I can get more involved in this forum so when I arrive to this awesome event, I know some fellow boaters and can have a blast!

I told my wife and she was thrilled about it! Any other recommendations for the trip? Coming from Milwaukee, WI

Welcome!!  It'll be great to see a new one!  They look awesome, no longer the cookie cutter white blobs of the late 90's, mid-2000's...they have style & heritage again.

Looking forward to it!

I'm looking forward to it. Coming from 92 maxum 100hp. Cant wait to let her sing with the rest of her Glastron family. Thanks for all the warm welcome. We are newer younger boat owners, but we are boaters for life now. Cant wait to meet fellow boaters of the Glastron legacy! Cant wait!

Thanks..... It caught my eye when we were looking around the show room and bam there she was... Just waiting for me to give her a great future! :) I didnt know much about Glastron but the sales rep suggested it was the best bang for your buck plus I loved the overall design and look of the boat. Plus. I cant complain about the 250 hp alpa merc motor. I was told its got quite the kick.
