Talking CHECKMATE OWNERS RALLY 2014

A little later than normal posting but here we go!

5th annual Checkmate Owners Rally. We will be heading out of Grider Hill as we have the past few years. I am going to try and get a monster slip (covered houseboat) that we can all raft up together. This will eliminate any issues with docks like there was last year. There is food, lodging, and fuel as well as houseboat rentals if anyone wanted to go that route. Any questions, message Dave or I and we will do what we can to assist you. If you have my number, call or text me for quicker answers

There was also a lot of questions about shirts and next time I talk to Dean, I will ask about useage and copyright with the checkmate logo before I put the shirt idea out there!

Here is the plans
Friday 7/18/2014 ~ meet & greet raft up at Guffy Creek.
Saturday 7/19/2014 ~ 10am start. Stop at Conley bottom for lunch. Stop at Harmon Creek. Stop at Otter Falls. End at Guffy creek. Dinner at Grider Hill marina.
Sunday 7/20/2014 ~ Early morning run to Jamestown Marina for lunch before departing back to the daily grind

We have based the event from here
http://www.griderhillmarina.com/

Here are the other docks on the lake (listed in proximity to grider)

Keep in mind this is also open to any other brand of boat, if you have friends.....bring em on down!

The wife and I already put in for vacation as soon as the 2014 calendars were released. I had a blast the last couple years and can't wait to do it all again.
