    Default 17th Annual Lake Anna Feast

    Jack Weller’s 17th annual Lake Anna Virginia Feast will be held again this year on Friday & Saturday, June 8th and 9th, 2012. You are welcome to attend here at Lake Anna VA. If you come on Friday (8 June) you will find this is a nice lake for boating. This lake is 18 miles long. Usually it is not rough. Come have a nice time. I understand Performance Boats Magazine will be here to take pictures for upcoming articles. You will have a chance to get your boat in an upcoming issue.

    This is the largest small boat party on the east coast. If you have been here to one or more of these parties, you know we serve lunch on Saturday around 1:00 pm. The lunch is free, but the Lake Anna Rescue Squad will be serving the food to you and will, of course, accept any donation you might offer. I appreciate their involvement with my party. This year we will be serving hamburgers, cheeseburgers, fish, french-fries, hush puppies, hot dogs along with cold and hot side dishes my neighbors bring along. If you bring something to be shared with other boaters it will be appreciated. Please remember no mayonnaise - use mustard instead. We served about 1,000 lunches and we consumed about 100 gallons of iced tea and lemonade.

    I want to take this time to talk about Lake Anna, VA. This is a real nice lake on which to take your vacation. Monday through Friday the water is usually nice and calm. You can hook up with your internet friends. There are four restaurants you can now boat to directly. All four restaurants are such that you can eat inside or out. There are homes for rent, some of which are waterfront. In the early part of June, the pricing of rental homes is still lower than peak season - so save if you can. You can call Mary Holeman for prices and availability at 540-894-3200. She will do everything she can to help you. Just tell her you are coming to the party.

    There are some motels on and off the lake, but they fill up fast. High Point Marina (540-895-5249) and Lake Anna Lodge (540-895-5844). Virginia state park has six houses for rent (1-800-933-7275). You can also contact Anna Point Marina (540-895-5900) for info - ask for Beverly.

    Last year there were about 1,000 people here for the party. There were about 180 boats. In the previous sixteen years, there have been no real problems, so let’s make it seventeen! Just remember you can hurt a loved one or someone else so please be thoughtful and considerate to other boaters.

    We expect to have the Southern Rock Band back again as well.

    Lake Anna is located in Central Virginia between Fredericksburg and Richmond about one hour’s drive from I-95 and about one hour’s drive from I-64 between Charlottesville and Richmond. My address for you GPS is:

    Jack Weller
    650 Bearcastle Drive
    Bumpass, VA 23024
    If you have questions, just call after 5:00 pm to 540-894-5816 or weekends 301-802-7615.

    Hope to see you here!

    Jack

    I have invited another professional photographer- friend to this event. She spent a lot of years making a living capturing images of F1 type racing.
    This gal is VERY experienced in fast and quick photography. Great girl, her name is Donna. If you run into her, dont mention my name, Achmed.
