Re: G15 Dates and Location

Melissa and I just booked a loft lodge room for Sept 23-26. Look forward to seeing all of y'all then. With the nice kitchen in the room, it won't be difficult to cook up a few dishes for meals.

We could call the thurs afternoon run the "Beer run". Or "Paradise point run"

Their fb page says a new owner took over a year ago and made a ton of renovations. The food looks really good.

If I take the Aquatron I would call it the "Beer Crawl" :D

Re: Chickamauga Lake Reconnaisance run

The Pavilion by the pool (which is across from the lodge) was really nice. It had a bar that could also be a buffet, sinks refrigerator. Also the building had nice and clean restrooms.
