Ok guys so I'm thinking that I want to put a gathering together on lake mead...I'm leaning towards march april possibly may...I don't want to contradict any other events, races.etc...I'm looking at doing this at temple bar for many reasons such as
They have a motel there
Little cottages with kitchens and rooms
Campground facility
Temple bar marina is right where the colorado river comes into lake mead
It is always pretty flat in there
Water conditions are cleanest
And we got a big ass lake to play on
Also for the people that rent motels and cottages you get your own part of a beach

Getting into temple bar is on the arizona side just accross hoover damn

Lemme know guys if I get enough interest I will goto work!

I would like to do a Mead trip, and having the SCJB crew around would make it better.

http://foreverhouseboats.com/foreverinfo.cfm?PropertyKey=164&ContentKey=130792 room rates
http://foreverhouseboats.com/foreverinfo.cfm?PropertyKey=164&ContentKey=130876 dining and most importantly the bar...i like the bar there you may not

20 bucks to overnight slip your boat


From Phoenix:
Take I-17 north, and then I-40 west to Kingman. Take Highway 93 north out of Kingman, and then just past Milemarker 20 make a right at the Temple Bar exit. Temple Bar is located 28 miles from Highway 93 turnoff.

From Los Angeles: There are two options to choose from.

1): Take I-15 north toward Barstow/Las Vegas. Then get on the I-215 east to the I-515 south toward Downtown Las Vegas/Phoenix. I-515 then becomes Highway 93/95 south. Continue on Highway 93/95 south to Boulder City. Go past the Vons in Boulder City and turn Left to continue on Highway 93 toward the Hoover Dam (watch for the signs). Go past Hoover Dam. Between Milemarkers 19 and 20, you will see a sign saying "Temple Bar Resort, use Left lanes'. Turn left. Temple Bar is located approximately 28 miles from the turnoff.

2): Take I-15 north toward Barstow/Las Vegas. In Barstow, take the I-40 east toward Kingman. In Kingman, Get on the I-93/95 north toward Las Vegas. Just past Milemarker 20, make a right turn at the sign for Temple Bar Marina. Temple Bar is approximately 28 miles from the turnoff.

also 2sav there is a google feature to get you there...or drive to kingman head towards vegas/hoover dayum...pass milemarker 20 turn right at temple bar turnoff

Willow Beach is instant Hypothermia, water NEVER gets warm there. I went to Echo Bay the other day, nice. They have a HOtel there and it's just far enough out for no crowds. Anyway, I'll be on the water so see you all out there.
