    Default ***CANCELLED***** Powellfest 2009

    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.

    Count us in Don! We did our first Powell trip (and 1st beach camping trip as well!) last September for a week (thanks to all for your tips and suggestions). Stayed in the Escalante ARM as a base camp and explored as much as we could (many times at 70 mph and many times at 5 mph ), only to discover this is ONE BIG LAKE worth coming back too each year!

    So...sleeping on a Bennington shouldn't be a problem right? Every time I read one of these things I want to make it but it is always around Sturgis time. Maybe this is the year I make it! A definite maybe for me

    Default I'm in!!

    As of now, I don't have my kids that weekend. I'm in either way

    Not sure if i'll get w/ a group on a house boat or just tent it or sleep on an airmatress under the stars (and occasional rain drops) like last year.

    Many people slept on there boats last year. If I had my pontoon boat still I'd of done the same.

    I can't wait to see everyone again from last year and meet new people too.

    This trip is open to whoever decides they want to show up. In past years, the trip has been more adult oriented, but this year we are changing that up a bit and working it into a more kid friendly trip. Granted, it won't be Disney Land, but it will be tamer than what you would see at Havasu.

    It usually depends on how many people we get committed and the water level. Padre Bay seems to work out the best for this due to the proximity of the Marinas and availibility of beaches.

    Granted, there are probably people that have attended that were known to participate in those activities, but in 4 years, I never saw anything above and beyond what you would see at the sandbar happening there.

    As is stated above, We are trying to make this a more family oriented event and if you don't have anything productive to add, please feel free to not post here.

    Tom after our house boat trip (first time) week on Lake Powell and on a house boat we were definately thinking of bringing our Bennington back out this year for atleast a few days,Our boats would be perfect.
    I think we will try to make this trip.

    The only thing that kind of intimidates me is the lack of personal knowledge of Lake Powell myself. Would have to make sure I had a good crew along with me for sure.

    Our Sturgis thing is kind of falling apart which would have sunk this trip. Dales daughter Amber is due with her first right at that time so I am sure Dale/Lisa will be hanging close to home.
