Labor day weekend is coming up quick. My destinations are as follows.

Wed-Aug-29- Fri Aug 31 @ Lake Pateros on the Columbia River. Thanks to Cliff for getting this organized again. I am trying to get it together so I can bring some sort of a rail setup over this year. I hope everyone is getting their tricks dialed in. Last year we had a best crash trying a new trick competition. This year, I think it should be for best new trick (something you haven't landed before) Everyone who is interested could make it more fun by throwing in 5-10 buck and winner could take it. Or other suggestions would be great as well.

Sat. Aug 1- Monday Aug 3- @ Crescent Bar resort on the Columbia river. I would love to get out for an early morning set if anyone has a spot on a boat. If not I am also down to meet some people and have a few beers.

Let me know if you will be at either place or if you have different plans in Washington, I would love to hear them as well.

Wed-Fri at Pateros as well then Friday thru Monday on the houseboats on Lake Roosevelt. Upload

I can take Pateros or leave it. I just get tired of crappy water conditions and all the crowds.

I just finagled Ghostrider a couple rooms. I'm told we have the entire fire station side, and multiple rooms on the north end.

I've got the prizes for the King of Crash wrapped up now, and I'm working on the Saturday night BBQ potluck.

Mike is going to drag a 30' slider over and assemble it in front of the motel, and I'm going to try to fit John Fowlers kicker in the back of my truck to bring over.

Friday morning I have four tee times setup at the golf course starting at 9:30.


Anybody is welcome to this event. I'm out of rooms at the hotel for this year, but there's camping down the street or rooms about a 1/2 mile up the road at the golf course if you're interested.

Gary - Do you have room in the boat all day on Friday? Will you take a surfer? Not sure if I am bring Dylan or not.
I will be down (or is it up???) river Wednesday and Thursday. Then back to the west side for some labor day glass on Lk. Washington.

not fully. Just Friday. I will be with other friends at another location the first part of the week, so I thought I would come for one day if I can get on a boat that will allow wakesurfing. But I still have to be back in Seattle area by noon on Saturday for family stuff.

Just talked to the wife...We're in!!

I know Gary likes Pacifico, but, Noti, and Cliff, what do you like?

Anyone else with a boat that would like to give me a pull, place your drink orders!

See you all on Friday!

Wish I could take part!

I leave for Roosevelt today around 5:30 for the next 9 days.

Unfortunately Labor Day weekend I'm working and am forced into a BBQ with parents and the gf's parents....woohoo!

I'm going to have to try and make it next year, looks and sounds like a blast!

Darren and I will be surfing with the kids. Maybe Cliff will too.

Cliff - What about a long drive contest? I can bring some old clubs so everyone has the same chance. I have ALOT of old balls laying around. Could do it Friday night after golfing.

Is there anyway anyone would have room for one more. I was supposed to go to Powell and the stars didn't really align for that trip and would like to get out of the city for the weekend. I can help pay bring beverages, whatever. Let me know.

OK here's what I have for schwag so far:

1. Arnette 4079 full house sunglasses in shiny black with polarized lenses

2. Jet Pilot Falcon Molded S/E Comp Vest Blue

3. 07 Obrien Zenon bindings black in a large

Mike, I will be over at crescent bar all weekend. I am hoping I can pick my new(old) boat up this week and get it ready by then. If you don't mind riding behind an 83 stars and stripes with 1500#'s and a extended pylon. We will be partying mostly but might be able to make it out for a morning ride once or twice.

Brett- I will keep an eye out for you. My old boat was a prostar 190 with about the same weight as yours so I would happily take you up on it. Where are you staying?

What time are people getting to Pateros on wed? I am trying to figure out if I need to take the day off or if everyone is arriving in the evening.

As for the slider, I got a nice start on it today at work. I still need rope and some sort of anchor system. I think it could be a little tricky to keep them in place with the current on the river. Any suggestions?

Ya I know what you can use... Noti, for implying I'd ever surf.

I just as soon have my testicles removed with a rusty butter knife. The experience would probably be more pleasurable for me.

A little early to be playing weatherman, but the two week forecast looks to be an average of 75 degree days and 55 degree nights. Peeeeerfect.

Mike, not exactly sure. My friends rented a 3 bedroom condo. I have never actually been to crescent bar. I usually go to my buddies cabin in Sunland. Hopefully I can get that boat by the labor day or I might kick myself in the face. I really do not want to be in Crescent Bar with no boat.

By the way, we are having a pretty decent sale right now on gear if anybody needs anything. The Issaquah store has a lot better inventory though.

I'm at Pateros. I'm not sure if there is going to be an abundance or shortage of boats but I only have one other confirmed person with me at this point so I will either need another rider or would appreciate jumping on another boat.

For those who have never been. There are 2 free launches within 200 yds of the hotel. Everyone usually pulls their boat at night due to the unpredictable currents and winds. The gas station is just down the street from the hotel so it's convenient to fill up in the morning before launching or in the evening when you pull your boat. There is ample truck/trailer parking at either end of the hotel. The Ace Hardware is also the local tackle shop and liquor store (mmmmm...Jaeger). There are 3 restaurants within 5 minutes walking and Brewster is only about 10 minutes away.

Anything I missed???

Right now the forecast for next wed is back up to 88. Let's hope it holds true.

Put the biminis on and don't forget the sunscreen.

This is killing me, I can't wait. 7 boats and how many riders this year? In my opinion, last year it would have been nice to have a few more boats out there. I am not complaining I just remember that there were plenty of riders to go around and a few even getting left on the docks.
Adam- I would love to get a pull behind your S.S. if you end up bringing it.

Love to see ya come, you won't regret it.


I don't know if the tube will come out this year. I am planning on a water rendition of Swan Lake I've choreographed for my new passion... trick skiing.

Starting to look like a fricken Malibu reunion.

For those who want to camp or RV.

This should help anyone who needs to find lodging or camping near the event. Keep in mind all of these alternates are within walking distance of the hotel so it's not like you would be very far away.

Consider this an invite.


I don't have anything official for the wives or the kids. If any of the gals want to roll over to Chelan for the afternoon, there will be plenty of us left to watch the kids. As for the kids, they basically run themselves to exhaustion by the end of day.

Eagle - Wish you could join us and show what the MCs can do. On second thought, maybe not, wouldn't want the cc looking bad next to that x1. Better stay away. LOL!

Jakober - You know we're there the whole time. Wed-Sun is he only way we roll!

I know my wife and another will be out riding. Our little one will probably be on the boat skiing, surfing and maybe riding. The tube will be lost and left at home (tee hee, sorry you'll have to ski). For any girls wanting to ride Mrs. Noti might be taking the boat out for a girls ride on Sat or Sun.

My wife would enjoy hanging out with other women on the boat since normally she's only out on the boat when its a family day. Not many if any at all board on Whidbey Island.

I run the Bellevue Golf Course.


I will be heading to Roosevelt for the weekend for more glass and houseboats. The pictures you posted look nice, but I think I will find some decent water at Roosevelt


Of course Jenn will be working that week and weekend. I won't be there over the weekend though, we are playing golf Friday morning then heading east to the Houseboats.

hey guys where are all of these spots in relation to the George Gorge. We will be up at Dave Matthews for that weekend, but only going to the show one day and people talked about boating on the Columbia while we are there???
Let me know if it is anywhere close or way off?
Is it worth bringing a boat to the concert and then hitting the river?
Old     (noti_dad)      Join Date: Jul 2003       08-21-2007, 9:01 AM Reply   
We'll be atleast an hour and a half drive by car north of you (Pateros is north of Wenatchee and Entiat by 30-45 mins, 20 min east of Chelan). But Creasent Bar is really close and there will be a ton of action going on there that w/e. Look further up the post, Mike and Adam are going to be done that way over the w/e.

You're 1.5 hours to Pateros from the Gorge. You're probably about 30 minutes to Crescent Bar or the old Vantage Highway launch. I hear Crescent Bar has become quite the party spot nowadays.

Your pretty far south of us at the gorge. You can launch your boat and run up river from Vantage if you want to listen to the concert from the water. I would rather go to the concert itself considering there will probably be a billion swooning chics at a Dave Mathews concert.

how well do you hear the music from the river?

You can hear it real well. The atmoshere down on the river during a concert ie visual partying is awesome. There's a great spot on the shore where everyone can pull up and tailgate.

Cliff are you counting Jeff/Bryan's boat? I think that is a Moomba of some sort. Troy just emailed me that gang will be there Wednesday, Thursday and leaving Friday. Which you probably already knew about.
