Well there was a problem,they sold Anchor Inn,,that means there is no ramp or parking for trailers,and we wont work there,,So Jim the coordinator of the event bought a bar and docks and ramp,,it is at the other end of the lake at the mouth of river,ISLAND BAR 7545 BLACKHAWK ISLAND RD FORT ATKINSON,He has owned this for a couple yrs I think,It is smaller and less docks but has room for a few on grass,nice tables on river.The date was not available.We were going to try earlier,,12th but then that is mothers day weekend,So we will go with this..If a guy has some parts just open your tail gate I guess,,but parking is going to be tight,,also there is a Jimmy Buffet band sat night,,I really think it is Jimmy himself but keep that quietHe is also getting hooked with motel 10 min away,,we are close to fort atkinson now,,I will report when I know more,,Bill

OK I talked to Jim the coordinator,he is putting more docks in this week at the bar/restraurant,The problem is Motels have been booked by the year for wedding at fort atkinson,so I think we need to shoot for cancellations or go to other side of lake where we stayed last year,or Janesville,Looks like 10 minutes in Fort,last year would be about 20 minutes, and about the same for Janesville.I will keep you posted,,Bill

I just passed Kosh/edgerton on Highway 39 5 hours ago... ate at the worlds largest Culver’s. Bill - passed your exit many hours earlier... sorry we didn’t stop, but would have got us home a bit late for old folk lol. Hope to catch you at Kosh. Good luck on the Gale Cal.

Hope we don't get rained out like last year:(

I'll be throwing a half dozen boxes of old stuff for you guys to pick through. Sorta like a name your price flea market if you want anything. Will just open up the tailgate on the Jeep. Might be worth something to someone.

Who will be going? The two of us are, looking forward to it.. Koshkenong was our home lake for 18 years. If you plan on boating in the lake be sure to take plenty of fuel along with. It's a large body of water and it's an easy place to get far away and not have enough fuel to get back. Been there, done that! See everyone June 2, spread the word!

First, do no harm!
It's a lot easier to buy a boat than sell a boat.(Stole this from a member!)
All that work and hardware store mailbox letters for the hull? Tsk tsk..

Not sure what to bring... is a 30 year old Merc and Hydrostream old enough or does it need to be older than 50? ... or maybe we will ride with Cal and I can buy some gas.

Mark, you're old enough. Bringing 12 gals of gas, always room for more people.
Still waiting for the thermostat for the Johnson so I can get it running up to snuff, hate these last minute details.

Question: If Jimmy Buffet will really be attending, will he be there Friday night or sometime Saturday afternoon or evening? I will attend, but need to know if I need to modify my plans. EDIT: oops - just saw Saturday night!

The weather forecast for Lake Koshkonong next weekend looks promising.
The river was under no-wake restrictions south of the lake down to the damn earlier in the month but water levels are been dropping now so hopefully it will be lifted.
We should have great boating conditions out on the lake and good weather all weekend.

The Island looks like my kinda place.

See:
www.islandcampground.com/

Glen Steinberg is coming up with me and will be shooting some video so get them classics shining.

Mary,
I hope you and Bill are planning to bring the Sedan.

Thanks,
Terry

Finally got to dunk my latest project started last August. Bummer going all last summer without water. She'll be there on Saturday. Got the motor running....somewhat. Running on 1 1/2 cylinders. Will need a good tune-up guy to ride along to adjust high and low speed.

I made it to the hotel. My boat is parked between about 6 big highway construction trucks. 13 trucks total. They must be working through weekends on the big highway bridge replacement. Hope they see my little boat as they pull out. Looks like a few other Glassic among the trucks. See everyone ate the landing.

Construction dump trucks fired up and pulled out at 5:30. Ooops, one more crane truck. Made me nervous seeing such nice Glassic from others wit heavy construction equipment so close. Plenty of room now for moving around a trailer... heading to the landing shortly. I will take care of mosquito patrol as I have fogging spray throughout the motor and had no time to fire up at home.

Just got back in after some log-in issues. Thanks Ken for making it happen.

It was a great day on the water and seeing all the boats. Great to meet some of the guys that i have seen on the site but now got to see in person. Next year I will bring a boat to play with too! A little busy this year with moving the girlfriend in to a new house. It was hard enough to drag her away on the second date she owned the home!!

big thanks to Mark / Dr Go for giving us a ride on the Hydrostream. Look forward to doing it again.

Glad you guys got away from your hectic schedule for a little boat ride and great friends. I have to be near there again on Wednesday. If I have time, I will stop in for some lunch. Hopefully catch another boat ride in August up in Sturgeon Bay. Wish I had a strong truck to tow 2 boats tandem.
