5th Annual Lake Erie Boat Float (and picnic!)

This will be a potluck of sorts, but without grilling, since there aren't any grills down by the beach. If someone has a portable grill, that's fine as long as it has its own power source. The concession stand will NOT be open. Please bring fun, easy finger food! Bring blankets, neat sheets, chairs, canopies, whatever you feel like! This is just to get together, have a good time, eat fun food, be outside and watch people launch their boats made of all post-consumer materials. I would suggest bringing your own service items, paper towels, etc. as well, as this is basically a free-for-all.

Remember your sunscreen, bug spray and drinks to share! We'll hopefully supply a cooler with ice, but if someone has one of those awesome drink tubs, that would be fantastic - we could pile on the ice and the cans and bottled water (and we will recycle everything!) :-)

Since the whole point of the Lake Erie Boat Float is to promote recycling and educate the public on conservation, let's try to do our part and recycle what we can, and take care of our trash responsibly :)

Here is a map of where the launch will take place: http://www.cmnh.org/site/Files/Sustainability/BoatFloatMap2013.pdf

PLEASE NOTE: Have a secure place for your valuables, or take them with you - we may have to walk to view the launch, people may want to hike along the beach, etc. :) Hopefuly it'll be a great day for doing whatever!

    It was a lovely way to spend the day. Though most of us missed the Boat Float, we lingered long into the afternoon. It was a pleasure to meet Umit!

    We're along the path that goes along the water, north of the Honey Hut. Not far from white chairs set up for wedding.

    I am here. i parked in the middle of everything, not by the beach. I'm going to walk to the picnic tables under the trees. I have a blue chair with me, am wearing blue jeans and a sleeveless patterned top. Mark is wearing a white CFTshirt and shorts.

    Unfortunately I don't have a balloon or flag to set up at the door. I'm leaving now - hopefully I won't get lost :) I will try to set up at the grassy area by all the sidewalks. My cell is[masked] - Mark's is[masked]

    I have recently had a huge epiphany about myself. It's going to take a long time to correct my faults, after 50 yrs. I think will be too much on me. I'm bowing out. Sorry

    We're going to try to get a spot on the grassy area between the lower beach (where the boats are being launched), and the parking lots, so hopefully we'll have some shade. We'll have a balloon or two to signal where we are. I don't know how popular this event is, having never been to it nor having heard of it until recently, so I don't know how the parking situation will be or anything. We'll try to have plates and plasticware available, but this is kind of a "boxed lunch" potluck - a free-for-all, so I would suggest coming prepared with your own service items, just in case. We will have a blanket and a couple of chairs. If someone can bring a large cooler and ice, and others can bring canned pop and bottled water, that would be great. We'll bring a recycling bag for any bottles and cans.

      The concession stand is probably not going to be open. The hours on the Honey Hut site state it's only open from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Darn.

    How long is this event planned to go for? I had to make appointments with a couple utilities for Saturday (11-1 and another for 1-3). (But Edgewater Park is right down the street from me.)

      Valerie, it's as long as you want it to be :) - we can be there all day, or until everyone starts leaving.

    I'm concerned about the what we'll be walking on. If it's sand, don't think my ankles will cut it. Would someone please reply ?

      I'm hoping to have balloons or something so that we can find the group. I'm not sure where we're going to be yet - whether we're going to be on the beach or at the picnic area.

      September 2, 2013

  • Eric F.

    Possibly going... Mark me as "maybe" too.

    September 2, 2013

  • Roni & Elliott B.

    You need to have an option "maybe", cause that's what I really meant. I'll try to make it.

      Unfortunately, Meetup did away with that option awhile ago.

    Let me know if the organizers need help with anything!

  • David B.

    I can never be sure that I'll make something like this, but I'd sure like to try! I may bring 1 or more guests. I'll update as the time gets closer.
