10000 Aha Macav Parkway, Laughlin, NV
It's time for the first water ski / wake boarding weekend trip of the summer!
The destination once again is the AVI Resort Hotel (10000 Aha Macav Parkway) on the Colorado River in Laughlin, Nevada. For more information on the AVI Resort go to avicasino.com. From Garden Grove, Ca to the AVI Resort, it's about 260 miles or 4-1/2 hours away depending on traffic. Rooms at the hotel are currently running $89 per night. The resort overlooks the Colorado River and during the day we will be staying at the beach right in front of the casino, under a shady cabana. The Hotel pool is right behind the beach, that all of us can use.
This event may be opened up to another meet up group.
The plan is to leave OC or LA on Thursday or Friday afternoon, (depending if people want to take Friday off), ski and board all day Friday, Saturday, and then on Sunday, ski and board until around 2:00 pm and head home. I will be taking Friday off for this trip, so please e-mail me if you also are taking Friday off for this trip.
If you have a camper or motorhome, you might want to use the RV Park which is just across the street from the Casino Parking Lot.
Everyone will be responsible for their own Hotel rooms, food, drink, clothes, sunglasses, beach chairs, sunscreen and so on. Trip includes use of my boat, water skis, vests, gloves and ropes and handles. Sorry, but I do not have a wake board for people to use, so if you like to wake board, you need to bring one for yourself. Be advised that the Hotel does sell out. Reserve your room early!
The resort has several very nice restaurants for dining at night and also some fast food places for lunch. This trip is for beginners thru advanced skiers and boarders.
This trip is first come, first serve and is open for up to 8 people, including myself. Carpooling is encouraged for this trip.
Please be aware, I only require the following payments: 1) Equally share the cost of the gas and oil for the boat. 2) A $20 deposit must be mailed to me by Saturday May 3, from everyone who wants to attend. If you don't send a deposit, you can't go on the trip. The deposit will be returned back to the people who show up on the first day of the trip. If you don't show up for the trip you lose your deposit. People who are serious about attending, please sign up and I will provide my address, where you can mail your $20 check for your deposit.
Please e-mail me if you have any questions.
That's about it. Hope to see you at the River!
