G-11 Friday Lunch Run to Chattanooga

Postby neel thompson » Fri Aug 11, 2017 12:46 pm

I think it may be close enough to G-11 to start a post on the Friday Lunch Run.... It worked out great last year as the weather was perfect and we had somewhere around 40 people at the restaurant. We left Hales Bar Marina at 10:30 AM (EDT) Friday morning and arrived at the Chattanooga marina around 12:45 PM (CDT). There is a time change somewhere along the route. I would guess the trip is about 35 miles to Chattanooga. We were back at Hales Bar around 3:30 PM (EDT). I think we had around 12 boats make the trip. For those not planning to take their boat, we will certainly have extra seats available. Some also drove to the restaurant. I think everyone was happy with the Big River Grill, but if not, please let me know...

So, I would like to get an idea of how many boats will be going, how many extra seats in each boat, who is going, and who needs a ride. If I can get all of that information, I will take care of reservations. Thanks everyone,,, Neel

I will start it off.....

Thanks Neel.

We plan to go. But, your time is wrong. Hales Bar is CDT and Chattanooga is EDT. But you're right we leave around 10:30 CDT and get to Chatt. a little before 1:00 EDT. Chatt is up river from Hales Bar. :wink: I plan to go to Gulf Shores on the 21st and make sure the Bartender is good to go and cleaned up. I hope to be able to take 6 total.

For others info, the run is about 35 miles each way.

Neel:
Rosemary and I will need a ride to Chattanooga. I thought the Big River Grill was great, and would love to see us go there again. Not too long a walk, food was good, beer was great.

Sorry about the time confusion. In the original post, change "EDT" to "CDT", and "CDT" to "EDT". That should make it right. When I am at Hales Bar Marina, I never am quite sure what time it is and if someone asked me to point to North, South, East, or West, I would have no clue !!!

Right now I count 32 seats, (including the Barto's). I know we'll have more boats! This is great! Please plan to come! This is so much fun!

I plan to run the little Tango 13 skiff on the run. I'll probably leave an hour early since my top speed is only in the low 20 mph range.

My count, assuming I'm up and running, is we have about 40 seats for the run, right now! I think we'll gain a few. I counted Butch and me as 6 people boats. But, we may be able to go seven.

Come on down, we'll find a way!
