So I know this has come up a couple times in other posts but we (my family, another moomba family, and a couple other familys with the other M brand boats) are going to be up there for a week from Aug 2nd - 9th. I was thinking we should attempt a Mini Jam. With all the central Wa owners and Seattle area owners we ought to try to pull one off. Could be lots o' fun?:cool:
I'll even bring my 4 stroke water pump and build an epic water slide on the bar!
Thoughts?

i probaly wont make it, as i am nowhere near central wash (though it is closer than FL) the water slide is a certainly a huge selling point and tons of fun.

good luck in getting this going.

I'm over in Seattle, would be fun to get together with some other Moomba owners from the area. Keep us up to date as more details become available.

I could make it from 8/7-8/9 but I will be on travel prior to that. I've been by there many times but never stopped. I'll probably leave the boat at home unless you want to see the Grandfather of Mobius and you may want to check the concert schedule at the Gorge for a side trip.

Maybe we could get SC to supply a 60ft supra/moomba banner for the slide! :)
Saturday the Aug 8th would work.

I bet if you ask AWS they would supply one. This sounds like alot of fun. Are us Oregon people also invited?

Not a chance Jester! Well maybe you.;)
Thats a long pull for us but we are staying for a week.
I know the Crescent Bar resort Condo's are booked for that week but one may be able to get in a cancelation request. There is also a campground there that you may be able to get in.

Sunserra is another where you can rent condos and homes in the area.

Quincy Wa, and Vantage Wa, are the two closest towns and you can get to the bar from both resorts.
I'm really not familiar with Vantage but I'm sure you can find something there as well. Ellensburg is fairly close too and there are places to stay there. It might be kind of late to plan a week trip for some but a weekend trip may be ok if you can stay in one of these places. Play all day Saturday, stay the night and come home Sunday.
Good find Zabooda! That could be fun too.

Newty,

It is only about 400 miles from my house. That is not too bad. Ok well it kind of is. For some reason i thougth it was just a litttle off I-5 just above LongView. I guess i am a little off on that one. I might have to pass since that would be over a 7 hour drive but good to know i am an Oregon guy that can hang with the WA group.

Jester, a 7hr drive is worth it if you were to ask me. Im 3300 miles away and would love to go.

Jester I plan to leave my boat at home and bring gas, ski, tent, intoxicants and food and crash wherever and you can do the same. If there is a shortage of boats, I'll bring mine as I'm only 90 miles away.

Zabooda,

"Intoxicants" that's kind of a negative attitude. I'd been for a 3 day weekend with my boat & camper, food, and "Intoxicans" not intoxicants, LOL

Now that's scary when you have a local on this page. Where do you go this time of year? I'm still a month and a half away from getting my boat out and that would be Potholes. Looks like I got a ride to Crescent. Yee haa.

Newty, post some photo's for us when you get back. Have fun

You should have air temperatures near 100 but that water is still cold. I may be going to the Potholes where the water is probably at least 15 degrees warmer but if the winds pick up then forget it.

Moombadaze will do.
Zabooda if you get blown out and want to come out you know where to find me.

Welcome back Newty. Glad ya had a good time and made it back safe.

We went to Yale Lake in Washington last weekend. It was a blast. A lot of small debris but if you watched you could find some good spots with clean water for sports

newty

I guess I will stop whining about the 68 degree water that I encountered at Lake Strawberry outside of Salt Lake City 3 weeks ago.

OMG 68 degrees? Thats awesome bath water.

Well the water here is naturally pretty cold so its all a matter of conditioning to it. I know when i left AZ 5 years ago to move here the summers here i though man this is nothing. I never ran the AC or anything.

5 years later and its 90 outside and the house is 80 and im clicking the AC on lol.
