Kickin It On The Lake

If the weather isn't looking good two days out, I will change the event to the 4th instead (if it is looking better).  I understand that that might affect your RSVP, however since we are now a group of almost 3800, if the event does not change dates, your RSVP is a commitment to come.  There are only 25 spots for this event, so if you take one and then don't show up, you are taking an awesome night away from someone else.  Please don't be that person.

It's an annual tradition that we have to continue.  Come kick it with us on the lake.  Come join us for a fun day and night on the lake.  

We'll arrive on the 5th between noon and 1pm (we are about 30 minutes west of Ann Arbor).  At 1 pm we will load up the party barge and the jet boat and head over to the sand bar (If you have your own life jacket, please bring it, as I'm sure to not have quite enough for everyone).  After we anchor we'll set up the Jello Wrestling on the front of the barge.  It's a fun tradition started from our first Memorial day rafting trip. 

We'll return to the house around 5pm and grill out (please bring something for the grill, and a dish to pass (please do your best to make something homemade, chips certainly don't count).  We may head back out after eating or set up the volleyball net in the water and play some volleyball.  Please BYOB.  If you'd like a variety, if you bring a craft brew 6 pack, I'm happy to make trades from my selection of over 100 beers in our basement party fridge.

It may not work, but I'm going to try for movies under the stars with a bonfire around 10pm.  I haven't done it at our new place yet, so I'm not quite sure if I can make it happen.

We'll have shuffleboard, beer pong, beer battleship, and hopefully someone can bring a bag o for entertainment.

Carpooling is encouraged, as we have limited parking spots at the house.

We have 4 bedrooms, and tons of floor space, bring a sleeping bag and stay over.  We have a spot for 1 or 2 tents if you'd prefer to sleep outside, the first 2 too ask in the comments get them.  We have 2 dogs, please leave your dog with a friend.


**TO ATTEND YOU MUST BE A MEMBER, IF YOU WANT YOUR FRIEND TO COME, THEY MUST JOIN THE GROUP AND RSVP ON THEIR OWN.  YOU ALSO MUST HAVE COMPLETED YOUR PROFILE AND AGREED TO THE WAIVER**

    Hey, I posted some pictures. I don't think any of them are inappropriate in any way, but let me know if you need anything deleted. Don't worry, no one in bathing suits in my set because I know I would rather not have pics of me in a bathing suit anywhere online, but feel free to email them to me ;-) )

    Thanks Andrew and Sierra for your hospitality. It was a lot of fun. Was anyone able to find my black sweatshirt jacket that I either left on the jet boat or the pontoon boat? Thanks

    Were on our way! We still haven't gotten directions yet though. Is there anywhere we should be headed more specific than the Waterloo recreation area?

    If anyone has a Mac laptop they can bring I have a really fun activity we can play that runs off of the Bluetooth.

    I need to work today, so I won't be able to make the boat before, but I will come by at 5 for the cookout. I have a great desert to bring!

    July 5, 2014

    Would it be helpful if I brought my canoe as an extra way to get out to the sandbar and back?

    July 4, 2014

    • Andrew

      If it is easy, you are welcome to, we do have a jet boat and paddle boat that can run back and forth...

      July 4, 2014

  • Andrew

    Please update your RSVP if you can't make it, as there are people on the waiting list who would like to attend. Also, if you can carpool please do so, as parking is limited.

    If anyone lives out in Livonia area and would like to carpool send me a text or call me @[masked]-8246. FYI, I'm planning on driving there in my Jeep with the top down.

    Our dish to pass, can it be refrigerated when we get there, or do we need to pack it in ice or bring something that doesn't require refrigeration?

    June 28, 2014

    • Andrew

      If possible, bring ice, if not, I'm sure we can find space (just not for 20 dishes)
