We need to come up with a great spot for a Wet meet / Swap meet. I think we would target early spring or late fall. Some key items to think about
- A less busy area on water we can hold events like slow races or 3hp or 6hp derby.
- A large enough parking lot where we can setup a swap meet in a section and
- A low bank area or large docks we cant bank or park boats.
- A picnic area or pavilion to eat lunch, gather, chat and possible motor display.
There are a few prospects I think:
Long Branch park on Old Hickory
has a pavilion and a decent size parking lot. Also has a low bank area we cant bank our boats (assuming we are allowed to). We'd of course need to check with Park officials and reserve pavilion.
Bledsoe Creek park
I was also just at a ramp in Bledsoe Creek park recently, that also has similar capabilities as Long Branch...no pavilion though.
Please respond with ideas if you know of a great spot.
