I will give you the forcast for Crescent Bar on Memorial Day weekend: "partly cloudy with a high chance of public drunkeness"
Can't wait to watch all the drunks trying to put their boats back on their trailers after a long day a the sandbar. That never gets old.

brett, i wasn't planning quite that early. i need to help the wife get the kids up and fed. my buddies want me to go saturday, but it's going to be a zoo and my girls got a b-day party in the middle of the afternoon. friday will be way less crowded too. was already planning on taking friday off.

brett call in sick!

noti, that sounds good to me if i can't wrangle anybody else to go.

i can make sure to be there ahead of you know problem.

wish those docks had cleats, i'd just give it a go by myself early before it gets busy.

JS, we're considering a run over to Entiat but we'll likely just play at a local small lake above my house called Roses. It should be about 15 degrees warmer than Entiat and we may be able to get away without having to use a shorty. Anyway good weather, good beer and good ridin' are in the forecast!!!

Darren, uhgg crescent bar on Memorial or Labor day is rough. The worst part is the drive back in traffic.

Here is a link to's weather center and webcams. There is no specific weather reporting for Crescent bar, you may want to try Vantage or Wenatchee for comparison. 81646

CB on any weekend has smooth water, you just have to know where to go, up river!!. No one is up there because of the rocks. I am guessing that the water will still be under 50 degrees on Memorial, should be a good chance for some hypothermia.

Darren, where are you staying? Me and some friends are going to be renting a condo in Sun Serra. We should meet up and ride a couple of the days. None of the friends I am going with over there board.

Darren, Yeah you can always find a stretch of glass around some bend or another. I meant that as a generlization with regards to the people, traffic and hang overs.

JS, I just figured out who you are you guy's buy all of your rigs from Darren here at Bickford and you brought him in Hyperlite wakesurfer.

Hate, I know exactly what your talking about. I used to ski there back in the day when they had the slalom course in. Prolly 5-7 years ago....

Yeah that would be us. Darren is a good guy he has taken good care of us.

Do you work there? You ride at Goodwin don't you? I haven't been up there yet this year. How is it?

Brett, I am staying in the trailer park. Lot 351.

Hate, you are definately right on with CB's craziness on the big weekends.

JS, come down to CB on Sunday. I will be there. Are you bringing the green monster?

JS, yeah I sell there too I actually live on the same street as Darren we had a house built out here at Goodwin a couple years ago. It's been good but cold we're still in our dry suits and just wakesurfing and sending rollers at the fisherman so far but I'm definitely ready to start riding. I think I saw you out here 1 day last year after you got your green xstar and a buddy of mine lives on Stevens and has seen you guys out there raging the pro 80's he said your boat is super loud.

Troy - No go on 11. Cliff is adamant about taking his boat out @ 10. Something about not changing anything so he can perfect his TS wake 2 wake.

yeah, it never usually warms up enough for me until July....

depends on weather though. this nice hot weekend will help for sure.

we stopped going to lincoln rock on father's day weekend because it just isn't warm enough yet to trunk it.
Old     (x2fanatic)      Join Date: Jul 2006       05-14-2008, 8:55 AM Reply   
We usually dont trunk it until July, so we have lots of drysuits, wetsuits and rashguards, and shower and heater to warm up with.

I have a meeting at 9:30. Probably couldn't get home until about 11. I'll call you and see where you are at, If you are at the North End needing a break from the butter, I'd be happy to grab a set.

There used to be a web page linked off of the Sunlands site that showed the water levels at the dock. Does anyone have that link or a link similar that shows water level below Rock Island Damn for Crescent Bar, Sunlands, etc.?

brett, you sick yet?!
Old     (polarbill)      Join Date: Jun 2003       05-15-2008, 1:37 PM Reply   
Thinking about it. The only problem is if I do become sick I am going to have to pressure wash the whole dock.

Cliff, the PP had a bad servo motor. Got the bad ballast pump ordered. Found that the power and ground for the depth finder aren't hooked up and the sensor needs to be epoxied back down. Almost got her ready to go. I even found that it fit on the lift so no dock/bouy rash.

Ken, no calling up here to Blanchard tomorrow and telling people I might be out on the lake.

Mike and I got some of that, we were out at the time of that pic. I figured it was the last weeknight of the year where we owned the butter. This weekend will bring out all the surfers and the rest of the after work crowds. If it is like last year, the water is usually toast from 5PM until dark.
