Labor Day Lake Weekend: Boating, Beer, Camping, Kayaking and Jello Wrestling

Camping is required.  If you are absolutely terrified of sleeping under a tent, please send me an email prior to RSVPing and I will see if I can find a place for you in the house with a sleeping bag.  If you don’t have a tent, no problem, I have several extra’s, but please send me a message so I can save one for you.

Cost: $15 pays for Boat Gas, Firewood and camping for the weekend.  Depending upon how many people, there may be two kegs.  It will either be Wolverine Premium Lager, or a local Jackson Beer.

If you want to bring a guest, they have to sign up for their own meetup account and join the group.  They can leave following the event, but a liability waiver is signed by joining the group and is absolutely required.

 

What to Bring:

A Tent, sleeping bag, outdoor games, floating things, one dish worth of food for a lot of people (signup to follow), stuff to drink a cooler, snacks, etc.  Swimsuit, Towels, Biodegradable soap, etc.

 

If you want to bring a dog, please contact me first, there are only 2 dog spots remaining.

    Where is the campsite? Can I bring a kayak and a 17 ft Boston whaler? Haven't had the whaler in the water yet.

    August 26, 2013

    • Staten T. M.

      Sounds good. Where is the ramp and campsite? Where can I dock/anchor the boat?

      August 26, 2013

    • Andrew

      The house info will be emailed the day before the event, it is near Napoleon, Michigan. There is a dock at the house and a ramp not far from the house.

    If I don't have a kayak, is there a rental location onsite in order for me to participate in Kayaking?

    August 26, 2013

    • Andrew

      There is not a rental place onsite unfortunately however we may run a jet boat to the end of the lake to check on them so you can hop on that.

      Saturday night is fine, there are showers, but if you can use the lake great, if not, we'll make it work
