little over a month away, hard to believe the summer is going by this quickly.

This is the event we welcome all Donzi and other boats from lineage of of the golden days of Thunderboat Row . The car show is in town as well so there is plenty to see and do.

make your reservations now , and remember to mention to the twin bay village staff you are coming for the LGDCC picnic to receive your discount.

Twin Bay Village (http://www.twinbayvillage.com/)

get that recipe perfected the grills will be ready . there will be plenty of dock space but if you are going to stop by please give us a heads up so we can get you the right spot.

for the first time
We will be having a special auction at the picnic on some hard to come by items. These items were generously donated to the club to help fund raising by club member James Root. The club thanks you Rootsy!

This is a partial list all of the items will be auctioned off

a Morse shifter knob
assorted perko deck hardware including
nav lights, drain plugs, switches and
some merc parts.

I will be adding some of my spare project parts as well.

we will post up a complete list of the items with pics shortly , if you are interested in an item let us know and we can arrange a phone call during the bidding.

looking fwd to seeing everyone

We will be at twin bay village from noon on Saturday some people are pulling in today at various times. So if you are out there swing by. Twin bay is the bay just north of the Algonquin and Chics.

Well the truck is packed and we may or may not have a boat behind it! Fingers crossed. But like you said, Matty, any weekend in lake George is better than a weekend anywhere else! We'll be there and hope to meet some cool people, have a great time, and see plenty of Donzis! We're heading out from north Jersey at about 7 tonight, so we expect to be there before 11.

Seeya then!,
Matt

I'm cruising down by boat and shooting for noonish. Hopefully it's not as rough as it's been the last 2 years for the picnic.

I'll kick it off, Matty

A great weekend w/ old friends and lots of new.

Great food (what was in that London Broil marinade?) and great boating, well a few sprinkles Saturday afternoon and a little rough Sunday AM. But Friday PM and Saturday AM were awesome. And I managed a ride on the Saris Racing (recently retired) Kryptonite - Thanks, Johnny!

Here are a few pix, David and Nora's most excellent Cig 20 (thanks for the ride), Red Boat calm (Saturday AM) and Red Boat snotty (Sunday AM)

Double Vision?

Not on Lake George - plenty of old Donzis. Here is my boat w/ Patrick's boat. Crawled up forward to try to get a hull #, maybe 414, but too many screws in the way.

Big thanks of course to Scott and Tammy and Matty and Marie for doing all the heavy lifting!

a few random thoughts

it was a great weekend nice to see old friends and to meet new ones


Jay thanks to you and all who came up.

It was made plainly clear to me Marie likes two stripes more than one

the new venue was great when the temp drops to 35 degrees or it decides to rain at bit during the day

sometimes I forget how picturesque the lake really is

BEEF it's what's for dinner
