PONTOON BOATING at PORTAGE LAKES

"On The Pontoon, makin waves and catching rays"   Come on Out and Enjoy one of the Akron Area's best recreational spots, The Portage Lakes

Enjoy some Sun Time and the Scenery while Cruisin' the Lakes on an Summer Afternoon!  Afterward, we will grab some food and drinks at one of the many restaurants, like Dietz's Landing.

We will meet at 12:00PM at Dusty's Landing on West Turkeyfoot Lake Road down by the boat docks. Our departure time is 1:00pm until 3:00pm

I need 4 more captains to drive the remaining boats.

Last year we were rained out for this event. Our rain date in case for this will be two Saturdays from then (July 26).

NO ALCOHOL is allowed on the boat!! But there is an hour before we depart. Coolers with snacks and pop,water are allowed. Wear your suits if you want to take a dip.

I have reserved 5 boats (10 per) to equal 50 people, for a 2 hr ride. Cost will be approx $7 per person if there are no "no shows" (PLEASE BE ACCURATE ON YOUR RSVP!!) I've put a 50 member limit on this, no guests please.

"Party in slow motion, out there in the open

Mmmmmm motorboatin"
