Well, we've been talked into doing this again!! The 2009 Powellfest will be held on August 13th-16th this year. There will be one significant change this year. This year, the event is going to be more kid/family friendly. We will still be doing the Poker Run, Pig Roast and such.
With the downturn in the economy, houseboats are pretty cheap. Beach camping is always an option as well as staying at the local hotels and running uplake. The actual site of the event won't be determined until June or so, depending on water levels.
