Default Checkmate gathering next year

were looking to put a checkmate gathering together for next year. looking for suggestions on where to have it. we are thinking ocean city md. would have to be something that is between md and ny and waters that smaller mates would be able to run on.

I know it is not the area you are looking at, but at the checkmate owners forum, they have organized the "Chckmate Owners Rally" at Lake Cumberland for the last 2 or 3 years now.

Details for next year are being considered right now. Check out the website

thanks, i belong there to and have seen the post for it, most of us north east guys didnt go to it, would like to but for me it is a 12 hour ride to and from and for the guys farther north it makes it a little difficult. just trying to maybe set something up closer for the guys up here. we had a checkmate dealer that said he would bring a new boat or two out if we could set something up but no one went through with it. just trying to get suggestions on places to have it. havent done much boating other than the north chesapeake and delaware river so i don't know of many spots that we could hold it.

noyzee, i will keep you posted we are trying to find something in middle to try to get as much people as possible. we have some guys that would be coming from maryland so maybe jersey shore or north jersey shore in the back bays. if you have any suggestions to a good spot please let me know. also something that smaller mates can run in.

noyzee, we are trying to find something in the middle to please everyone. so far we have either ocean city md or somewhere down jersey shore like atlantic city,lbi, seaside or wildwood. you can get to them all from back bays. plus has plenty of resturaunts that you can get from water and the boardwalks. i don't think the guys from the bottom of maryland would go up as far as ct. let me know if you or anyone else would make the travel to jersey shore. i think that is probably going to be the half way point in between ct. and md. thanks
