Summer 2017 Hunt-Wa get together NOT THIS YEAR :-(
« on: January 24, 2017, 07:55:24 PM »
I have thought of this for a couple of years. Crab and salmon seasons will be open, transport to and from can probably be arranged, places to pitch a tent would be available.

I'm trying to get an idea of how many people would be interested. Please only vote once for one of the first three choices. If you have your own boat to bring check yes as well for that one. If it is more than you, please post a note as to how many additional (not including you) would be in your party.

GACK! I forgot to add the boat question and can't seem to change it now.... I'll check my Mod superpowers and see if I can... Nope.

Is there somewhere to moor a boat nearby?  I would need a slip and not just an anchoring area.

There are no slips but I can likely round up mooring buoys. Load/unload dock access would be granted.

JJB11B I'll have to admit that was cleaver.  :chuckle:

Don't worry Loki, he would probably not be able to travel that far on water before becoming violently sea sick and turn back in his john boat. :peep:

Underside....   :chuckle:

Dock access would be on west side, public ramp is on the east side.

I didn't select either date because August is a pretty busy month, but definitely interested. I would have a boat and need to know about Moorage too.

Hey guys I never post on here but I read almost daily, I've got a 22 foot Parker and I'm pretty sure that sounds like a good time! Count me in if you have a mooring, slip, or anchorage idea for my boat

I would love to finally make it to a gathering. Sounds like a great time. I do not have a boat to get me there but would be willing to help out on fuel and other expenses

Oh you'll make it no problem, it's about 45 min if I remember right, shorter then the English Channel I think.  :chuckle:

From the marina 6 1/4 miles, but if you get a running start and cliff dive at Washington Park, it is probably less than 5..... :chuckle:

I didn't vote on a date but defiantly in!  What are the restroom facilities like?  :chuckle:  it would be cool to get a Hunt-WA flotilla out there fishing and crabbing for a day or two.

That is a generous offer.  I have yet to be to a Hunt-WA get together.

I didn't vote on a date and I don't have a boat, but I would be glad to help cover expenses, and I could bring BB/pellet guns, etc. for kids target shooting, if desired.  I'd understand if there were too many riders and not enough captains. But otherwise, I would be 2-4, depending on wife and youngest, if we would make it.

Hey Lokidog that sounds great! I am definitely interested. It's been a while since I've been over that way. I didn't vote for a date because I don't have any vacation I can use (I'll still be on my probationary phase) and won't have any days off for sure, but I will try to arrange my schedule and open up some time once you settle on a date. I won't know until it gets closer, though. It would probably be just me or me and one more. No boat, so I'll need to boat-pool with someone.
