The District 28 Inland Rendezvous 
10 - 12 April 2015
Katherine Landing, Lake Mohave, AZ
Hosted by Lake Mohave and Phoenix Squadrons

April is just around the corner and Rooms are still available for the Katherine Landing D/28 Inland Rendezvous.  Reserve your room before others take it.  If you’ve never done it before, you will find it a fun change of venue from your normal boating or lack of.  We travel to the southern end of Lake Mohave (just north of Laughlin NV/Bullhead AZ) on the Colorado River and enjoy time on the lake.  If you need are attending and need a boat ride, please contact Bill Johnson ahead of time (contact info below), so we can make sure nobody is stranded on shore.
Friday starts with a welcome potluck hospitality party 5:30 MST; then begins Saturday with an outing on the lake, a Raft-up and/or Cove Picnic on the beach, Evening BBQ (bring your own grilling favorite) and pot-luck dinner at the park ramadas (charcoal & park grills provided); Sunday Breakfast at a local restaurant. The details for a Poker Run are under development, but judging from past events, it will be fun for all and a true test of navigation & puzzle solving skills for the boat skipper and crew.  A Predicated Log contest is being planned for Saturday afternoon.

OPTION A: If you don’t want to drag a boat to this event, consider the Winter Special of two nights and a day of Patio Boat(Steel Pontoon) or Ski Boat Rental *** From $199 & up depending on type of room plus taxes  (limited to normal rental office hours). 
OPTION B:  Join together with other members and share a boat rental.  What more fun can there be than racing patio boats at 10+(a little) MPH FULL THROTTLE with steel boats.  Takes your breath away from the speed!  Must be what it would be like racing sail boats against the wind (sorry guys! I couldn’t pass that one up. Bill).  I know the first thing they would say is “Why is it so noisy? Or Where is the sail?”

Katherine Landing D-28 Rendezvous
April 8 - 10, 2011
By Lt/C Dan Sheen

Really cool dock—The participants were bundled up against the unseasonably cold weather at the Katherine Landing rendezvous. (Photo courtesy of Sharon Weller)

Pontooning on the Colorado—Bill Johnson and Sharon and Joe Weller brave the elements.

The weather the next day was cloudy and threatening but pretty. There was a little window of opportunity and three boats went out. Joe and Sharon were joined by Bill Johnson on their pontoon. With the marginal weather, we had the ramp to ourselves and the boats took over the end of the courtesy dock

Terry and Jean took out their boat Time Out. Art Ashton joined Peter and I on Aquastar. We were followed back to the Marina by a small storm. Yours truly was the last one back but Art Ashton did some speedy trailer work and we beat the rain by nearly a full minute.

The weather outside threatens - Time to retreat to the inside.

Blustery only outside—Terry and Jean Gray with Connie and Bill Johnson find a snug harbor at Lake Mohave.

Restaurant Scene—More, including Art Ashton, P/D/C Bill Bridge from California and Peter Sheen, far from the madding crowd, enjoy the warmth of companionship and a proper heater.

Because the weather was threatening the normal Saturday Night Barbeque was cancelled and everyone ate at the restaurant.
The final day was a joy with absolutely no wind. Bill Johnson joined Terry and Jean on Time Out and Art joined me and my son, Peter, on Aquastar and we made a speed run up to Cottonwood Marina. Lots of largemouth bass were on spawning beds on the shoreline by the marina dock. I was able to purchase a rare Cottonwood Cove refrigerator magnet for the my family collection.
