I am incouraging Gerry from Active water sports to move the Jamborie from downtown Portland to Detroit Lake Or. He is considering it and it would be a nice location. Plenty of camping and nice lake. All you Northwest Moomba Owners way in. Just a thought...Davidl

Bam, Call Gerry he will fax the info in ! I told him about this and he said he will follow up. I believe there are a couple motels there. Good luck.
Also we are putting a major get together at Prinville resivore June 12-15th. Camping on the lake. We have over 100 people showing so far. This is in central Oregon. Love to have ya!!

I am looking into Detroit right now, I hope it is decided soon though so plans can be made.

I dunno E, grilled shrimp skewers are pretty darn good.

I'm always down for a jamboree being hosted closer to where I live. :)
Detroit is a pretty large lake and has some decent arms to go back and board in. Just like every lake the morning and before sunset are the times to go. Anything in between and the lake is horrible. If you like awesome pizza and breadsticks stop off at Giovanni's in Mill City. (it's on the way to Detroit) Just awesome!
There are many good spots to have boats tie up together and relax all day in the coves as well. And jump off the bridges too!

I will still take the tail (lobster) :D
I have been on the lake with pretty good white caps! But the coves do offer some nice hang time. Also there is some great camping spots around the lake...Just a thought

Ed, I have to disagree! Good seafood is good seafood BBQ, BOIL, STEAM it doesnt matter as long as it is cooked the right way! I just look forward to meeting all the Moomba and Supra owners from on this site........

The Northwest reuion willbe July 19 and 20th,yes we are looking in to Detroit lake. See you this summer.
02-26-2008, 10:26 PM
BBQ seafood??? I think not! Nothing better than a good crawfish boil accompnied by some Miller lites (gotta keep from getting full o' beer).

We'd be down for Detroit or Green Peter - I think Green Peter may be a little further south from Portland. Heck if I had my choice I'd pick Billie Chinook. And.... we're all meat and potatoes down here!
02-28-2008, 12:34 AM
Billy is a great choise! Just a thought!......David. (the ramp is 15 min from my drive-way)

You guys have to remember that some of us live North of Portland! I think if you get to far away you will lose folks. I wish Koppert was a bigger lake, that would be perfect. I want to go but It has to be a reasonable trip for me to be able to go............
02-28-2008, 02:33 AM
The two places we are looking at doing the reuion are detroit lake or in the down town Portland area. We should have it nailed down by next week. We are looking into hotels and places to camp.

Ed, as an avid Lobster hunter there is no wrong way to eat or should I say prepare sea food. Hence the need for the stretchy pants :lol:
02-28-2008, 07:02 PM
Man Ed your all heart :lol:
I may have to leave Buttas freezing back yard and head down to West Palm this weekend just to grab a few more of my spinny backed friends :D
02-28-2008, 07:12 PM
I guess it's the hair?
But to be fair by back yard I mean within a 30 mile radius
02-28-2008, 07:14 PM
I wish my back yard was that big!
02-28-2008, 07:35 PM
You must be mistaking me from my hippy, tree hugging days.
It stopped growing on me head, and started growing other places.
02-28-2008, 08:06 PM
Funny you say that, that's exactely why I go with the stretchy pants now :wink:
