Hey Checkmatefever, I think it is time to talk about a "Mate-Get-Together" weekend for this summer. I plan to be in a few poker runs this summer but would love to get together with some Checkmate owners. Thoughts?
Well I don't know what I have in mind exactly. Sounds like you know more guys than I do with Mates. I say we pick a Saturday afternoon and get as many together as we can. Cruise the lake, float, eat, drink, whatever, I am easy. I can tell you the weekends I am busy, June 16, Watkins Glen cardboard boat regatta, June 23 Pirates Poker Run, July 21 Battleship Poker Run. Other than that I should be available unless the old lady has something planned...
I have lots of chunks of my summer missing already, but I will be on Keuka the entire week of July 4, besides that, sometime later in august I might be able to make it over.
Andy, the state park in branchport is pretty nice, grew up camping and boating there.
Starr turned me on to this. I have a 25 Convincor GTX and am President of ROPA as well. The weekend after the Battleship Run is a run on Oneida Lake so the weekend before might be the best bet.I knew you guy's would be in for sure!!
A Saturday afternoon is good with me too, all of the above like you said, run, float, eat, drink, it's a perfect plan! The weekends i'm not around would be the weekend of the June 3rd, June 24th, and the weekend of July 7-8, that's about it, otherwise i'm at the lake!! I'll be over to watch the SPBA Pirate and ROPA Battleship runs, but only as a spectator on the bridge in Watkins Glen, probably won't bring the boat over. June is looking kinda tough, maybe the weekend before or after the Battleship Run (July 14th, 29th)?

BTW, Why wouldn't you want to bring that cool Enchanter to do the Battleship Run? We aren't about boats and size but of people. There even was a person (familiar here but unnamed) who showed up one year in a Hydrostream and a guy who ran it all on a jetski (and says he's doing it again this year.
I have to give credit where credit is due. Whiplash is the reason I fell in love with the Convincor. He raised a good point when we talked today. What is the policy on Keuka Lake regarding a noise ordinance? I am sure we will be making all kinds of noise with the thru hull's and don't want the attention of local law enforcement. CheckmateFever you spend your time on Keuka, is there an enforceable policy you know of?
Whiplash, I sure hope you can make it on July 14th plus give some insight to a well organized boating event (you do have an impressive resume as president of ROPA & Running the Battleship run)
