Acquapalooza 2013

July 28, 2013 at Picnic Point Lake Mendota

• July 28, 2013 • 11:45 AM to 4:00 PM???sunset???

Acquapalooza 2013 is July 28th at Picnic Point. There will be a barge with the Midlife Crisis Band playing from noon to 4:00. Access is by boat or walk in. You can park at Picnic Point parking lot and walk about ¾ miles to the party (bikes are no longer allowed at Picnic Point). You can stay on the shore but should dress to be in the water near the barge where the real party is found in mostly in 2 ft-4ft of water. You can also find your way to a boat. There are no venders, so bring everything you need such food, drinks, drinks, drinks, ice, ice, ice, sunscreen etc

BOATS will meet on the lake side of picnic point at 11:00 AM. We will most likely be in the second roll of boats, a bit to the left of center(when facing the shore) there is likely to be a space in the center without boats. We will locate a raft up point and anchor. There will only be a few sailboats, so you should be able to find me. I will also have a colorful wind sock, but you will find the boat long before you see the windsock.


Please list in comments if you have a boat or want to be a passenger. Boat owners, please list the number of passengers you can take. If you are a passenger looking for a boat ride. Please make your own arrangements since I am unable to make connections for you. Update your comments when your boat is full or you are no longer looking for a boat ride.


If you don't arrive on a boat, look for our raft up and join us. Other Meet Up Groups are attending. There are usually only a few people on the shore so finding others at 11:45 should be easy, I'll try to post a sign somewhere on the beach.


This is a popular and fun activity with many boats participating. It is sponsored by Skipper Buds and Sea Ray Boats. There is no entrance charge.
NOTE: IF YOU ARE A NON SWIMMER, WEAR A LIVE VEST BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO JOIN A BOAT IN THE LATCH UP.

Other meet up groups are invited.

    I stopped by the original site but the weather caused the event to move to the other side of the lake and I didn't make it. I'm sure it was nice.

    I would like to be a passenger

    July 22, 2013

    • David S

      Jenny, That would be just fine. Perhaps you could help me bring the boat over to Pete's. In your picture, it looks like you are holding a yoga pose, and some agility would be useful. Ok by you?

      July 22, 2013

    • Jenny J.

      Sure I can help:) I'll wait for details as it gets closer.
