Need Gathering info

Post by Wolfeg »

I'm new to the boat building world and found this site. Was wondering about the gathering. Who is welcome? ( just glen-l builders or can anyone join in). What happens there? Just any general info would be great! Thanks!

Everyone is welcome. Look out on the index page for Gathering 2016. The Gathering is Sept. 16-18 @ Hares Bar Marina, Lake Nickajack TN. This is just south of Chattanooga.

Wolfeg: Anyone is welcome to the gathering. You get a chance to see different boats built. As this is the 10th anniversary, we expect many boats. You can get chance to ride in some of the boats. We sit on the dock and discuss building. You have a chance to ask questions of people who have built the boats. We do a river run to Chattanooga for lunch on Friday. Usually there are enough seats that you can ride along. We eat, drink and have an all around good time. Everything is pretty casual. There is no competition among the boats. I have only been for one day last year, but had such a good time, I plan on being there Thursday thru Sunday. I'm sure there are things I forgot. Others that have been to more than one day could probably add more.

Hales Bar has floating cabin, land cabins, and RV park. Activities are at the floating cabins. There are camp grounds near by. Hotels a couple of I24 exits away.
