A bunch of places have a halloween blowout party to end the season. Check out the one at Schmidty's. Good time. I usually pack mine up in mid october, but my sisters boat has engine heaters and eisenglass so they go till almost december.

Have had the crusier out on Thanksgiving and Xmas; winterize the water systems and install some bilge heaters and you are good to go; water doesn't typically freeze until Jan.

Six or seven years ago it got up to 70* on New Years eve. We had watch the Weather Channel and anticipated going. I've had to winterized my boat up to 3 times one winter stealing nice days.

I did it.. The wife and I now own our first boat. It is a velocity 290sc. We are staying on the 11mm and having a blast. Friday was awesome on the water. Sat was a bit rough on the main but not near holiday crazy. Big cruiser wake did however scare the crap out of my wife. Looking to watch the chiefs on the lake today and see what Monday brings. Still want to open her up but still feeling her out. We have had no problems keeping ourselves entertained and well fed.

We'll be hanging in Golfball cove at the 14mm today. It has been a great weekend on the water. Rockstar parking everywhere you go, no wait for a table and quick service. Try Shorty Pants for watching the game. They have a NICE outdoor seating area with a big screen. I love LOTO this time of year.

Ill see if I can find golf ball cove. Always nice to put a face to a name. If you see a white velocity with red and black graphics that appears to be lost and piloted by a rookie......that's us. Thanks for the heads up on good game spots.
