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

If I don't get my Gale running I'll be bringing a trailer queen.
Looks like he didn't get anything done on that mystery boat the past year :)

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..

Great point about the big lake plus river run and being mindful of gas. Thanks for that reminder!

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.
