I'm gonna be down at Powell coincidently the same dates as Brostock. I've never been to Powell but I understand how big it is. I was wondering how far away I am from where BroStock is. It's hard to find info about where it is. I'm staying at Bullfrog. Anywhere near BroStock?

wakeworld 05-27-2008 10:04 AM

No, you're going to be at the opposite end of the lake. It will be held somewhere in Warm Creek, which is right outside of Wahweap. The exact spot is not known yet and it will probably depend on whether or not the cut is open. They are going to scope it out via airplane in a week or so to find the best spot.

bobert 05-27-2008 10:12 AM

Thanks. Would it be easiest and quickest to drive around?

wakeworld 05-27-2008 10:38 AM

That's my understanding. It's pretty far away.

wakeripper 05-27-2008 11:04 AM

I saw it from the plane coming home from Kansas City.....Couldn't really tell if it was open or not

ottog1979 05-28-2008 11:21 AM

Last year my boys &amp; I took our first trip to Powell. Wanting to see a lot of the lake we did a couple days in Wahweap and a couple in Bullfrog/Halls Crossing. Won't do that again on the same trip! I thought the drive was going to be 3-4 hours. It was more like 6-7 (but we were towing) on the south side of the lake. A north route would be even farther. You could go by boat but that would also be an all day one-way affair. <BR> <BR>Hope this helps.

bobert 05-28-2008 12:19 PM

It does thanks a lot! I think we are taking an RV as well, so we may cruise around and spend the night down there. Thanks again guys

brodie_chaboya 05-29-2008 6:57 PM

Anyone know the exact location yet or what marina is close? If I'm driving from Las Vegas whats the best route?

wakerider111 05-29-2008 7:04 PM

Warm Creek is the general location <BR>wahweap is the closest marina if the cut opens up, but if not antelope marina is closest <BR>Page AZ is the closest city to these locations, so you and everyone else will be driving to page so to speak.

brodie_chaboya 05-29-2008 8:05 PM

Thanks Jeremy, that was exactly what I wanted to know. Are you going?

wakerider111 05-30-2008 8:07 PM

don't worry trevor, i and dave and many others will take pics and we will all post them here... maybe some video too

azwakekid 06-03-2008 7:34 PM

anyone know the exact location yet?

wakeworld 06-03-2008 7:45 PM

Warm Creek, but the exact spot will probably depend on whether or not the cut is open. Unfortunately, it's not expected to be open until after Brostock. If it isn't open, they will most likely locate close to the cut so that people can come over from the marina and walk across the cut to get to Brostock. If it does happen to open, the event will probably be moved to a more secluded area of Warm Creek because the cut will then be a high-traffic area. <BR> <BR>I believe Aaron Grace told me that he will be flying over the location and making the final decision on or around June 9th, so look for an announcement after that.

wakerider111 06-03-2008 8:26 PM

here are some progressive pics of the castle rock cut... taken about once a week for the last 3 weeks. you might have to look close to see the differences, <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/586907.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/586908.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/586909.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/586910.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/586911.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR> <BR> <BR>some other random views <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/586912.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/586913.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR> <BR>sorry they are not the best pics. i tried to take them the same, but i need more practice ;P <BR> f.y.i. the very last pic in each set was taken today

adrenalindustries 06-05-2008 11:30 AM

I am taking a house boat and we are trying to fill it for bro stock.. we are staying on a different part of the lake but no farther then 5 minutes from brostock whoever is interested can come

wakerider111 06-05-2008 6:17 PM

I work at the lake and was talking to some people that are somewhat in charge of some things durring the event and they were saying that park service is probably going to want brostock to be near by the floating restroom in warm creek, which is more on the back side of castle rock currently <BR> <BR>... BUT still this is NO sure 100% location for brostock, just f.y.i. and update for ya all of what i have found out. <BR> <BR>also, aramark will be holding a concessions stand of some sort out there, and i believe there will be some kind of free food (lunch) the first day...i believe... <BR> <BR>stay tuned for the REAL ACTUAL confirmation, from whoever will be posting it!

oldmansteck 06-05-2008 10:01 PM

wakerider <BR> <BR>thanks for the pics update us when the water touches. Looks like it could be tomorrow if things keep going the way they are. Maybe in two weeks it should be safe to cross.

wakeworld 06-05-2008 10:30 PM

Yeah, keep us posted. I need to put a houseboat through there on 6/11!

wakerider111 06-06-2008 8:31 AM

i will keep you all posted ... i am moving my pic taking spot to higher/closer ground (top of the hill that is to the left of the pics taken from a distance) and i am trying harder to take them the same time and zoom and angle and what not, for better comparison. <BR> <BR>i think i will also take at least 2 pics a week, or more ;) <BR> <BR>also i'll check again next week on any updates from aramark

wakerider111 06-06-2008 6:58 PM

Sooo.... <BR>apparently the water <font size="+2">"TOUCHED"</font> today, June 6th at 8:30ish in the morning, so naturally i had to go up and take another pic even though i took one yesterday, but if you ask me... i cant see any hint of water touching from my pics. it must be a marshy area that is a foot long or something ;), hidden by the weeds, either that or some fool took a shovel to it to rig the contest they had going ;) <BR> <BR>Anyway, here are the pics (about 25 hours difference)... i cut out the area of importance to increase size and ability to see differences <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/587858.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR>David Williams and everyone else going, <BR>by the sound of things (and looks) you just might be able to cross. I heard from a very reliable source today about the water touching, AND he also said that the cut is expected to open by the 10th or so <BR> <BR>p.s. I'm gona try to keep daily pics from here on out and post a compilation again next week. <font size="+2">the lake rises about ONE FOOT a day!!! so plan on anchoring far up the beach and readjusting anchor lines twice daily so you don't have to dig holes every day</font>

wakeworld 06-06-2008 7:05 PM

Didn't they actually dredge through at a certain spot when the water was going down in order to prolong the use of the cut? If so, there is probably some kind of trench that's hard to see from your photos. <BR> <BR>I think this is the coolest that we've got "live" reporting at Lake Powell. Thanks guys!

wakerider111 06-06-2008 7:14 PM

no dredging that i know of. that idea was canceled <BR> <BR>when it comes down to crossing the gap with your boat you might want to float it over with the engines trimmed up just in case, depending on the depth the day and hour that you arrive. we will see

wakeworld 06-06-2008 7:30 PM

I'm sure the Aramark folks will be determining whether or not we're allowed to take their boats through there. If it was up to me, I'd get a whole bunch of speed and hit it!

Dave, <BR> <BR>I'm with you... haha... let's just charge it! From the talks those of us at LF and the Alliance crew have had with the Powell crew, it sounds like it will be very close! I'm hoping we can get wake boats through at the very least. We will not know the official location of our event until we get to Powell and can access the water situation. Aaron Grace and Spencer Smith will be cruising around with the National Park Service on Monday and will determine the best spot in Warm Creek. They'll be getting in touch with Dave once they know so he can post the official spot. If you miss that posting, don't worry... there will be over 20 houseboats posted up in one location... I don't think we'll be hard to miss! haha. It's going to be a great time... we're looking forward to hanging out with everyone! Saturday is going to be insane... $20K first place prize for the pro that takes the double up contest! See you all next week! <BR>Don W.

wakeworld 06-07-2008 1:07 AM

Uhhhh...Don, is that a misprint? $20,000 for the winner of the double up contest? If that's the case, I'll try a triple flip!!

greatdane 06-07-2008 1:09 AM

Wow, those pics are amazing. I got go there at some point.

wakerider111 06-07-2008 8:18 AM

wakeworld 06-09-2008 12:09 PM

Are there any houseboats going through yet?

tigerules 06-09-2008 12:15 PM

No, not yet. According to Wayne Gustaveson from Wayne's Words only small boats can make it through. They are predicting that houseboats might be able to make through by mid week. Some guy has an old houseboat with a very shallow draft that is says he is going to do it today. <BR> <BR>There are several threads regarding this on Wayne's Words.

wakeworld 06-09-2008 12:25 PM

I tried to find out on that website, but I couldn't figure out that discussion board. It's makes ours look state-of-the-art! <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> I hope it's open by Wednesday morning cuz that's when I'll be there with 59 feet of luxury looking to plow through the gap!

tigerules 06-09-2008 12:39 PM

Yes, that website is very non-techy... I think it is that way because a lot of the users post from the lake using their phones...

brodie_chaboya 06-09-2008 1:51 PM

Ahhhh Yeahhhh, leaving for Vegas 2morow, see you guys out there thursday.

Nevermind we just got a minivan. Now is there anyone that needs a ride back to Vegas airport early sunday? I will be driving back by myself and will have room.

I would think that the houseboat rental folks will either give a yeah or nay on that before you leave the dock.

wakeworld 06-09-2008 9:15 PM

Hey, you Powell locals. Is there any kind of internet access provided at the Wawheap Marina or anywhere else around there?

wakerider111 06-09-2008 10:41 PM

i believe there is wireless, i'll double check at work tomarrow

wakeworld 06-09-2008 10:45 PM

Hook a brotha up! There's got to be a network I can tap into somewhere around there. I needs to update the website!

adrenalindustries 06-10-2008 7:18 AM

looks like you can't even fit a normal boat through that...

watsoc 06-10-2008 9:36 AM

Dave - I think there is wireless at the campground area in Wahweap at the store. I did not bring my computer there last time I went but I think I remember people using their laptops outside the store. If the cut is open then it should be an easy trip over to Wahweap from Brostock. <BR> <BR>I just confirmed on their website so now we expect daily updates <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>Free WiFi was installed at the campground. Connectivity varies due to our remote location, usage, weather and location in the park. Also available in the Lake Powell Resort lobby. <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.lakepowell.com/rv-campgrounds.cfm" target="_blank">http://www.lakepowell.com/rv-campgrounds.cfm</a>

wakeworld 06-10-2008 1:48 PM

The location of Brostock will be the west northwest corner of Warm Creek Bay. Go through the cut and follow the curve of the bay to the left and you'll end up at "Bro Beach." There will be at least four houseboats there tomorrow, including the WakeWorld houseboat. I believe the Park Service will also be set up and serving food. See you there!!

i don't remember the names of the AM double up winner(s) <BR> <BR>I also never heard word for word who won the 20,000 today, but i am pretty sure it was Gonzalez. And i think Jimmy L. was second. <BR> <BR>Dave or someone else will get the details to ya all. <BR>------------------------------------------------ <BR> <BR>One of the things i am most stoked about today was my first opportunity to ride behind a Real wakeboard boat! And not just any boat, but THE Wake World Ghost, driven by Dave himself! It was also the first time that i have ridden longer than 65 ft (at least i don't think i've ridden that long before). My rope is only 65 (and have never needed it longer... till today). Now i understand more fully some of the talk about wakes and line lengths and speeds. I can see how what seemed to be an impossible length of 80+ line length is actually very possible, even for a guy like me. I am a little sad to go back to the 18ft aramark boston whalers and my pop's old glasstron, but it is better than nothing. After years of thumbing rides in utah while going to school i finally catch a TRUE REAL wake boat that the pros now days would use. before this, a Centurion Avalanche was probably the closest thing, which is still really awesome too, but doesn't compare to the ghost. <BR> <BR>Dave was cool enough to let me try his board too, the LF Lyman. It was the second non-flex (non-slingshot board) i have ridden this year. I must say, very nice ride. and now i also understand the comments about it being "slippery" despite the multiple fins,... but tracks well under command, once you figure how to command it ;). I liked it better than the Byerly Legacy i rode this year.... however, the Byerly, i rode behind one of them Boston Whalers, so it is not a fair fight eh? <BR>I'm still addicted to flex boards though (slingshot) ;) <BR> <BR>i'll post more (pics and hopefully vids) tomorrow, my dad's got the camera

That would be awesome if Gonzales took that home. He deserves it! post it up.
