The link doesn't work, and what exactly is the plan? I'd like to come but I don't know anything about it.

Most people arrive Friday afternoon and launch at Treasure Cove. A group will likely go out to dinner and/or check out all the cars down in the village. There will be about 1000 amazing show cars all over the place - mostly 50s -60s American muscle. Saturday will be informal hanging around, boat rides, lake tours and a killer BBQ starting early afternoon also at Treasure Cove.
Sunday- more of the same, most people on trailers by early afternoon.Count on 15 or 20 boats turning up, more if the weather is nice.

Basically a Donzi party from noon on at Treasure Cove. It's very informal. Bring something to share, beverage of your choice, etc. Share rides in different boats, etc.

So I have not been to one of these events since they were on Speaker Heck Island.

Do I have to stay at Treasure Cove? I will be up at the lake this weekend but I already have other accommodation plans.

Also I don't have My St. Tropez ready, It is still in parts. Can I come via my other boat or car?

Is there any sort of schedule or plan. Should I bring something for bbq? If I am allowed to come who or how do I kick in $ for the bbq etc.

Thanks for any info.

No need to be staying at Treasure Cove. Stop in by boat or car. Stay a few minutes or all day. Catch a ride in another boat. It's like a pot luck picnic. Bring something to share or toss on the grill, beverage of choice, bathing suit, etc. I'd like to catch a ride in your 17.

Back from the picnic. Great weather all three days. Calm conditions Friday and Sunday, blowing real hard with big waves on Saturday-ask Don N how rough it was!!

My highlights:
-I put about 5 hours on my boat :)
-I got to drive Mike O's boat for about an hour (thanks Mike!)
- I got to drive one of the new Hornet 17s. The boat was solid, responsive and plenty fast with just the V6-Thanks David!
-Saw Ken's amazing 1972 Cig 19/20 Número UNO
-Full moon and fireworks
-About 1500 classic cars at the Adirondack Nationals
-Pearson's ribs

4 pretty nice Aronow boats below:

Hi Jay,

I just replied to an old message you sent. Didn't realize you were the same guy at the picnic in LG.

What a nice weekend......rough as hell though.

No worries Kenny. Always good to connect a name and a face.

Your boat looked and sounded great!

Here's another picture for the masses ;)
