5th Annual Cruisers Picnic

This will be the 5th annual Catawba Cruisers Picnic. I have looked at other locations, but this really does meet the needs of the group and is fairly close to the majority of members.

As in years past, I will supply all the meats, as well as rolls and I will get soft drinks and water as well.

Members are encouraged to bring a food dish to share. Please put in your reply what you are bringing so that we do not have 30 salads...

I will also supply all the plates and dinnerware. Lets see if we can outdo last year. I think we had close to 70 at that time.

Remember to bring your boats and swimwear. You can also bring friends to come and try out boats.

    Great day in the park. Thank you all for being kid friendly with your boats. Adriana thought she was so big paddling her own yak. Chris spent so much time on the water Saturday and Sunday I may try to get him on a mild river trip. Yes he got back out there even after his snake scare.

      Well Joe, there's the problem. I heard about the rings and T was sweet enough to eat a cupcake so I could have one. People just didn't know. Freeze em and try again next year.

    I had the best time today. I really do love these type of events as I like to see so much interaction with the members. I also got to meet quite a few new people today and hope to see them on the water soon. The day could not have been more perfect and I thank each of you that chose to spend it with me. Can not wait till the 6th annual. You people are the BEST!

    Didn’t see it listed, so I’ll bring some fixin’s for the burgers. Lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles and slaw. Oh and ketchup and mustard too.

    August 2, 2013

    • Ray C.

      I have 1 head of lettuce and I just finished chopping the onions and slicing tomatoes. Could use pickles and slaw. I have all the condiments as well.

    If anyone could hold a "knot tying clinic" tomorrow.... well, that would just be so cool. :-)

    August 2, 2013

    • Harold J.

      Early this year I bought 'The Camper's Knot Tying' from REI thinking I might be bored on one of the kayaking camping trips. It is a deck of 50 cards with illustrated instructions to tie various knots plus some twine and pieces of wood to tie knots on/around. It never happened.....bored, I mean. So, I still don't know how to tie all those knots, but I'll bring it and you can play with it to see if you want to buy one.
