Great news! It is official - Singleton Marine will be our hosting dealer and they want to do it right! I spoke with one of the owners, Bryan Potzner, and he wants to have a family friendly Malibu owners get together on thier lake. These guys know how to host a gathering! They put on 53 events last year, but he wants this one to be the big event to help promote Malibu boats. We want to make this THE gathering to attend.

When: August (2-4)

Where: Raft Up location will be near Charleston Park on the Cumming, GA side of the lake.

Activities (some are still tentative):

Friday

6:30pm - Meet & Greet at SMG Sales Dock & Castaways. Malibu owners can meet and hang out at Castaways Restaurant for dinner and drinks.

If we don't want to go the Castaways route, we can also do something at our own SMG Yacht Center/Sales Dock like we do with our Docktail Parties and have our own cookoutproviding our own alcohol, drinks, food, refreshments, etc.

Saturday

10am till

Raft up with Malibu owners in Charleston Park cove on Lake Lanier.

Run wakeboard demoes with SMG Mobile Wake and hydrofoil exhibition with the X-Air Foils team.

Night jam at the SMG 2.0 w/ music, Tiki torches, refreshments, etc.

Sunday

Run SMG Mobile Wake demos?

DEBUT of the new 2014 247 LSV!

Lodging: Many are planning on staying at Holiday Inn in Cumming. You can start booking tomorrow May 2nd. Tell them that you are with MALIBU CREW this is a must we need 10 rooms for the discount. They will need to know what you want and a credit card #. They won't charge anything just hold the room because if we don't have 10 rooms we won't get the discount. When you arrive you will pay with the card or cash how ever you want. They will be holding 10 rooms up till 3 weeks before at that point they will release any unbooked rooms. So if you are going PLEASE book in advance to help the crew get the discount.

Me and Bama are going to convoy if I get to go with my work I can't say for sure yes but it's like 95% I'm in. For that long of a drive I may do 5 to 7 day maybe hit a few other lake or just do a few extra days with the family.

Hey Bradley,

Where are you and Bama going to meet up? Birmingham? As it gets closer we will be able to decide. Sounds like lots of fun.

I can go to either go over to Chattanooga and down to Atlanta or down to b'ham and over to Atlanta. To meet Bradley, I would be going down to b'ham. About the same either way for me.

Hoping to have location on the lake worked out next week so we can start looking at lodging. I will touch base with Bryan early next week and post details.

Waiting on final word from Bryan at Singleton, but I would guess that it is going to be taking place around Lanier Islands Resort. They have all sorts of lodging and food nearby. The dealership is on the water there. I don't have info on a raft up spot yet.

does the resort hotel there give you boat access?

I have never been to something like this. Will we be trailering our boats in and out of the water? Do we pay to store it in a slip for the weekend?

Sounds awesome Bama - will have to talk it up w/ the wife but bet she'll count us in too! Just a short run from us to Chattanooga and then down 75 to Buford ! Our youngest son AJ is a freshman @ UTC this year and should be working back at the Cove again this summer w/ Scott & Zach. Have you talked it up w/ them at all yet ?. Haven't really hauled our wake pig anywhere yet - and will definitely have to beef up the tow flaps !
