Default CHECKMATE OWNER RALLY 2016! v2.0

OK, after straightening out some confusion, we are going to give this another go. The annual Checkmate Owners Rally is in full effect again this year!! The dates will be July 15th-17th. It will be again based out of Grider Hill Marina on beautiful Lake Cumberland in Kentucky.

As far as an itinerary goes, that is still in the works but will mostly remain close to what has gone on in the past. Some rafting up, a lunch run and of course some more awesome parties on J-Dock that have become a thing of Checkmate Owners Rally legend.

Here is the info for Grider Hill marina. They have rooms, cottages and houseboats to rent. A lot of people rent a "boatel" to stay in and split with others.

http://www.griderhillmarina.com/

115 Grider Hill Boat Dock, Albany, KY 42602

(606) 387-5501


We hope to have yet another great year with an awesome turnout!!!

Any question can be directed at myself or RNGRDVE. We will update this thread as the plans evolve!!

We will be there for 5 days or so. Always the highlight of our summer. Should even be bringing my updated old school Convincor !

Just got a confirmation from Barry (lcboater) who talked to the factory and they said they will be attending the rally again this year!! Not sure yet what model of boat they will be bringing to check out. They also said there might be some Checkmate goodies handed out!! Glad to have them on board again this year!!

I also have it on good authority that Stagger Lee will be playing on top of the Grider Ship Store again on Saturday night!! Anybody who has attended the event in the past knows how much fun it is to listen to this great band play. You can hear them from the party on the Houseboats or stroll up and see them up close. Always adds to the event!!

JULY CAN'T GET HERE SOON ENOUGH!!!!

I hope I can make my first CM Owner's Rally, but those dates look awfully close to a trip the wife has planned. I'll have to look into it further.

Ok, first you beg if that doesn't work explain to her you are the boss, if that still doesn't work find a nice area in the boat to sleep. Lol

I had to make the executive decision for our first trip to Cumbetland. Now she tells me we are going each year lol. A great and cheap getaway . Bring plenty of sunscreen !!
