Arrow Lake Champlain NY/VT Gathering & Run August 2nd, 2003

This tread was zapped on Bloody Monday 3/10/03 I will start over with the whole description of the run once I get on my home computer Wednesday night. Here is a description of the idea.

I am coordinating a run on Saturday August 2nd, 2003 for fun on Lake Champlain this summer. It is scheduled for the Weekend before the Montreal Poker Run.

Our “Milk Run” we will start from Mallets Bay in Colchester, VT and follow this course:

Mallets Bay VT to Burlington VT/24 Miles
Burlington, VT to Essex, NY/ 19 Miles
Essex, NY to Plattsburgh, NY/ 35 Miles
Plattsburgh, NY to Thayers Beach, Mallets bay, VT / 12 Miles

Nice pictures of all the spots

Lunch will be either in Essex NY or Plattsburgh, NY, we will start around 10 am in the morning. We usually anchor at Thayers Beach in Mallet's bay for fun, BBQ and ... It is a great spot to spend the night, the water is 3-4 ft deep goes out from a nice sandy beach for about 1/2 mile at that depth, we raft up and overmight there every weekend usually.

I have a more extensive description saved on the computer at home that I will post on Wednesday.

Post or PM any questions.

G.L. Harvie

GLH,

I have a 24 Skater. Would it be to small for the BIG lake?

Shane,

Not unless there is a LOT of wind I did 3 summers with a Baja 220 Sport and nothing is flatter or rougher than that..

You'll be all set, even if it blows I'm sure you'd have no problems following a HEAVY Cigarette thru the small streches that would be exposed remember its 14 Miles wide at the widdest.

Sounds interesting, Ill let you know as it gets a little closer.
Shane, Ouch????
If your worried Id be happy to drive while you thottle that little skater of yours. <confused> The only thing that will be difficult there is finding your way when your the first one at the stop on a strange pond <big grin>

I think this sounds very interesting. I always wanted to do a run on that pond. I havent been on that lake since 1971. Shane and I only live about 5 miles awayfrom the south end of that lake as the crow flys, but about an 1.5 hour drive around Lake George to get there by road. I will check my work schedule and arrange to get a swap and come over for the weekend....sounds like fun.

Hey Shane, Lets launch around Ticonderoga and make the run up by water
