This is a copy of the Facebook post that was made a couple days ago about the schedule for the weekend. It’s pretty much the same as every other year except a new destination for the lunch run and where the Saturday raft up will be.





Ok, the lunch run it set!! With that, I thought I would give a general rundown of the events for the weekend.

Friday: With people rolling in pretty much all day, this tends to be a “do your own thing” kind of day. Most people go explore the lake and there are a few small raft ups. Friday night a lot of people will wander the docks, as this is a great opportunity to meet other attendees, check out their boats and show off yours!! There is a “boatel” that will be a sort of home base for the weekend. Once it gets parked in its final location at Grider, I will post its location. You won’t be able to miss it though as I plan on flying a Checkmate banner from it welcoming all attendees.

Saturday: We will meet in the northern area of Grider‘s no wake zone around 10:30am. Once we have everyone rounded up we will head out as a group on the lunch run to Cumberland Tap restaurant located at Jamestown Marina. I have given them a heads up that we will be coming and they are excited to have us!!! After what I hope is a great lunch, we will head out as a group again to Harmon Creek. This is the biggest gathering spot on the lake and will give us an awesome opportunity to “make our presence known” on the lake and show off all of our beautiful boats!! We will have a big raft up there which is always a great place to take pictures, float around and talk to others that you haven’t met, talk about set ups on our boats and lie about how fast they are!!! That evening I encourage everyone to cut loose on the docks of Grider and make your way to the upper deck of the Marina Store to take in some live music from the band Yellow # 5.

Sunday: The saddest day of the weekend as this is the end of another Owners Rally. But fret not... as of this day we will start preparations for next years!!!

This schedule and any of its events are by no means mandatory. This is a very relaxed and laid back environment. If there is something else you’d rather do, feel free!! Also, I encourage everyone to do some exploring of Lake Cumberland as I can guarantee it will be one of the most beautiful lakes you will ever see!!

I’m hoping to make another cool announcement in the next week or so that will be a bonus for attendees this year, so stay tuned!!! And as always, can’t wait to see everyone at the lake!!! It’s getting close!!!!

Corey, bare in mind, Jamestown is on Central time. The wife and I have got jammed up waiting for the bar to open at 11 their time. Of course that could have been the wife’s plan so she could spend time and money in their gift shop. lol

Grider is in the same time zone as Jamestown. So if we leave at 11am local time, we should be good to go!!!

Had a great time at the rally- thanks for letting me crash the party (again!).

Weather wasn’t the greatest but man some of the best rallies I’ve been too have been accompanied by inclement weather. This one was no different. Hope everyone that attended had fun!

Speaking for myself here. This year I took very few pictures. No excuse, just excepting I sucked in the picture taking. Lol
