G-11 Gathering 9/14-17/2017

Postby Bill Edmundson » Fri Jan 20, 2017 7:41 am

The Gathering has been a Friday to Sunday since the beginning. Many of us come in on Thursday for the river trip to Chattanooga on Friday. So, I just added Thursday.

G-11 Hales Bar Marina
Lake Nickajack TN
Sept. 14 to 17, 2017

The Gathering is held at Hales Bar Marina, on Lake Nickajack, south of Chattanooga off I-24. It is the 3rd weekend in September. They have floating cabins, land cabins and RV park. There are other accommodations near by.

If you book a cabin, you need to tell them that you are with the boat builders group. They have blocked out all the floating cabins for us and some of the land cabins.

Try to come. We usually have around twenty boats. On Friday morning we load up and make the 35 mile run to Chattanooga for lunch.

Is this open to those of us who are just starting, my expected finish date for my first boat build ever (19ft Barrel Back) is likely May of 2020 but i would love to meet as many builders as i can and see their works of art.

Cyberguy, I attended the last one having only purchased the Zip plans. I don't think I've met a more welcoming group of people. Took a lot of pictures, got a lot of ideas, and met more than a few new friends.

I've been to the last two and I think my malahini probably won't be done before your completion date. I've gotten some great ideas, met a lot of very nice people and had some really fun rides in beautiful boats. Please plan on attending. You will not be sorry.

This will be my 3rd Gathering attending. Last year I brought my boat as a work in progress. This year I plan to have the boat complete. The gathering is a great place to get ideas, advice and suggestions, have fun and make great friends. I encourage all boat builders to attend regardless of the the phase you are in with your build. My first time I was in the planning phase. (very similar to the "talking my wife into it phase" or the " I think I can do this" phase.) Needless to say, I was able to get through those initial steps and overcome any trepidation I might have had about building a boat through attending the Gathering of Glen-L Boat Builders.

I am looking forward to the trip to Hales Bar in September and sharing in the fellowship of the Glen-L community of Boat-builders, of which I now am a part.

Rich and I will most likely be missing G11. It comes on the heels of the Acbs international show our chapter is hosting in September. I'm afraid we might be pretty burned out and need a rest. That's a busy time of the year where we are closing things up for the winter. One long road trip a year is about all we can handle. We will miss you guys.

Well, I'll post my bad news as well.
We will not make G11 as my wife's 50th high school reunion is Saturday, September 16.

We will be traveling north instead of south to Hales Bar, sans boat. We had a great time at G10 and were looking forward to this year.
