I want to be able to take a cab into downtown for Friday night and then be near the marina Saturday night.
Stay at the airport which is about half way between the Marina and downtown. Uber is cheap to get around and will be much cheper than cabs. It is about a $10 Uber ride from the airport either direction. I am working on a bus or two to run as a shuttle service between the hotels at the airport and the marina but can't promise that yet.

Just to make sure I get it out to everyone and there aren't any questions...

Slip Rentals are on a first come first served basis. Our marinas are private and if they can rent a slip long term then they do so our rentals are contingent on how many is available. I also offer money to anyone who will leave their slip for the weekend and anchor out just to add a few slips. We get our slip assignments about two weeks prior to the event and I will do my best to accommodate everyone. If you don't get a covered slip you will be able to keep your boat in the water. We also have a bunch of slips available on the Hendersonville side of the lake. If a slip is a do or die thing then get one on that side and we can guarantee it but I can't guarantee anything but sponsors at Blue Turtle. Most of then don't event take slips and they use the area around the marina. Anyone who whines will also immediately forfeit their slip to someone who has been accommodating. We are doing all we can with the areas we have!

Thanks and email me if you have questions!

Sooo...what your saying is, we WILL be able to keep the boat in the water, regardless of slip assignment/rental? Because I don't mind at all what slip I might end up in, or if I'm rafted off...just that I don't want to have to pull the boat each day...

I got a room at the Best Western Plus at the airport. Hopefully, that will be close enough.

That is absolutely correct. Nobody will have to pull their boat and we will have places to raft off for everyone.

Staying at the airport is about as close as you can get unless you rent a house through VRBO or AirBnB or something like that. Some from out of town stay at a hotel downtown since we are down there Friday night anyway. Uber and Cabs are very plentiful and it is easy to get around. Uber from downtown to the Marina is about $25 and the Uber XL is about $35 one way.

I think I have had a covered slip every year,(being a sponsor) I haven't used it yet! Always liked rafting off to my friends and hanging out in front of the bar/restaurant. There's always been plenty of room!

What I'm keeping my fingers crossed for is a crane or lift rack to lift my boat off the trailer (hint hint chad)....ramps just aren't deep enough for my 60' trailer!! LOL
