Well it's getting close to that time of year again. This years gathering in Pateros Washington will be Sept. 2-6th.
We will be bringing the kicker and a slider this year. There will be a pot luck Saturday night followed by a drawing benefitting The Susan G Comen foundation.
Dave "Fellini" Buck will be providing a nightly cinematic jumble of wake movies and any submissions from the crew for that day on his redneck big screen.
The Seven Hole Seven Iron golf tourney will again be held Friday morning up at Alta Lake Golf course.
The hotel may still have rooms for those interested. Pateros Motor Inn - 509-923-2203. http://www.lakepaterosmotorinn.com/
There are camp grounds within a mile. http://www.stateparks.com/alta_lake.html
The gas station has rv hookups available just down the street. http://www.paterossuperstop.com/index.html
For any who have not attended this gathering. It is not a competition in any way. This is a family friendly meeting of northwesterners who wish to celebrate the end of the season together, sharing their gear, boats, stories, ect.
The town is setup as such that when you pull in you are basically done having to drive for the weekend. There is a gas station, restaurant, liquor/sporting goods store, bar, and a mechanics garage within a block of the motel.
The motel itself is perfectly setup for mooring your boat just outside the door of your room. Kids can spend the entire day in the pool or on the expansive lawn under the watchful eye of multiple hyper sensitive mothers.
The towns people have welcomed us with open arms for going on twenty years now and usually come down to watch us try to kill ourselves on the kicker.
Well, that's it in a nutshell. We are always open to new folks coming out and anyone is welcome.
Oh, for anyone who may be wondering about the riding conditions.
