Date of meet and greet  

11 members have voted

  1. 1. Two available dates which would be better?

    • Saturday Sept 22nd
    • Sunday Sept 23rd


Recommended Posts

We have a chance to meet and greet at Lake Anna Va. in Sept., two days are posted as a poll as to which one will work better for all who wish to come and join us.

Zoff has asked to have us all come out and participate, there will be boaters and non boaters alike and please let us know which you are, boater or non boater, if you are a boater please note if you will have a seat available.

There are a lot of tournaments going on at Anna in Sept., parking can be difficult to find at the three most popular spots to launch from, Anna point, High point, and Sturgeons Creek.

I would suggest the State park, there is a large parking area, with places to picnic and socialise, and the boat ramp is excellent, it is located at the splits so you won't have to travel too far to find some good fishing.

Anyone unfamilure with the lake and has questions please feel free to ask.

We look forward to the opportunity to meet a lot of the people on this forum and learn a bit from each other.

I voted for Saturday, I think the trip will be better if we still have Sunday to rest a little, but I am game for either day.

Boater here with an open seat.

Sunday is best as it will not conflict with any duck and geese hunting if the season is open.

I'm good for either day and like the idea of the state park; I'll camp Fri, Sat, Sun nights; E/W camp site number is TBD.

See you then.

Edit: I'll be a boater and can take a non-boater. Is there going to be an agenda for the day???

New to the VA area, coming from TN. Fished a few times wtih Road Warrior and attended the past two road trips (KYLake/Guntersville)... I live near Fredricksburg and trying to find a good place to drop the boat in the water and fish. Any advice from fellow BR members in the area??? Going to try to make the Lake Anna meet and greet and would prefer Saturday the 22nd.

Thanks!

Jeff

Mr Swabby,

Welcome to Va., hope you can make it out, we would love to have you there !!

If you have fished with RW then Anna should be a breeze for ya.

There are some really good areas around F-burg and neighboring counties, with lots of good guy's and gal's that can help you out with that, WayneP. is one that comes to mind but lots of others.

Traveler,

We look forward to meeting you, hope you enjoy the state park it's a great place to stay and very clean, and usually very quiet.

Sam,

Thanx for the heads up, I will look into the hunting and check it out then post it here, will you possibly be particapating?

BBF,

Hope you can get some money together and meet us there, it would be nice to have you.

Non-boater here. I'll check finances and next months schedule to see if I can make it. Great idea. Maybe it could be made an annual event.

This was an idea from a conversation between Zoff and Sam, This is one of the central located bodies of water in Va. and one that was suggested in that conversation between the two, Zoff and I had a conversation, I offered to help and here we are, hoping to meet some of our members and have some fun.

I personally would like to be able to do several of these a year at all the different locations around our great state to have the chance to meet all of our members from Va. and maybe some others from BR.

Black Knight I hope you are able to put enough funds together and meet us there, it should be a lot of fun.

I'm good for either day and like the idea of the state park; I'll camp Fri, Sat, Sun nights; E/W camp site number is TBD.

See you then.

Edit: I'll be a boater and can take a non-boater. Is there going to be an agenda for the day???

As far as an agenda is concerned Traveler, I know there will be people that are going to be fishing early and some later, my thought is to go fishing early and have everyone meet back at the park at noon or so to have a bite and to share some b's-ing and such LOL !!

then head back out for some afternoon fun, so im thinking just keep it simple, but we are open to any and all thoughts and suggestions.

As for us who like it early, The gate at the state park does not open until dawn, it's automatic, which should be between 5:45 and 6:00, I hope to have all available info out to everyone via this thread for all who have questions so that we can all enjoy some early time on the water, as for the afternoon, if you decide to stay and fish, the gate at the state park will close at dusk, but it will open for people who are leaving the lake.

Question, how many, and who, can make it both days?

There may be BR members available both days; I'm arriving Friday afternoon and departing Monday.

Good point. I wish I could do both but I doubt it will happen. Since you mentioned it.... I am going to try and make it work.

Really good question, I don't think anyone thought of making it a 2 day event, I have made plans for one of the two days but I will look into the second and see if I can do the same Traveler.

Good to see the interest from all, and can't wait to meet with all of you.

Sam,

This was originally Zoff's idea from a conversation you two had a short time ago, it was your suggestion to include Anna, thank you for a great suggestion, I am more than willing to help any way I can to make this happen, I will work with him and see what is needed, I look forward to meeting you.

I only see this getting bigger as we go and may need to work out plans to make it a weekend event in the future,

Blast off at 7 and weigh in at 4????

Gives us time to lie to each other after fishing.

Looking forward to it.

And by the way, if the weather is bad on Saturday we may have to go on Sunday.

X2, Please let me know if there is anything I can help with. Also, I like the idea to call this a Meet & Greet as it doesn't take any wind out of the Road Trip sales.

This is for the Moderators - This text editor sucks,,, I highlighted starting with the "I" and ending with the "n" in happen. This text editor has been an on-going problem. :(

That is one of the goals, we don't want to be "copy cats" so to speak, we just thought this would be a chance for some of the locals to be able to meet up and enjoy some time on the water and give some of the non boaters a chance to fish some bigger waters and have some fun learning from others, hopefully, it all works out, I don't think we are taking away from the BR roadtrips but at the very least we are trying to give back to our own general community, especially for the ones that will not be able to attend the roadtrips for lack of expenses etc...

We are tossing around quite a few ideas, if it all works out, it only gets better from here.

Thanx for the offer Traveler !!!! we may need it.

Little bit of updated info for those who are coming

If you may choose to spend the night there are a couple of campgrounds in the area if you are interested.

1 State park $24.oo per nite for standard sites $32.00 for water and electric sites cabins are seasonal the ones I had seen are $74.00 per nite for a single bedroom, parking and launch will be free should you stay.

2 Christopher Run campground $30.00 per nite for standard $33.00 for water and electric $35.00 water, electric and sewer hook ups they also have small cabins for $50.00 per nite.

Fro additional info on the surrounding area campgrounds you can google "camping around/at lake anna" it will bring up a host of local areas with addresses and all the contact info needed.

For those that are bringing a boat, launch fee at the front entrance will be $9.00, there will not be anyone at the front entrance that early in the AM, they have an honor system, put your fee in the envelope and remove the tear away window tag to hang on your mirror and slip the envelope through the mail slot in the door.

For those that are non boaters your parking pass is $5.00, the same applies as above for payment, do not forget to put the tag on your mirror, the PO PO will check your tag during the day and make sure you paid by matching the envelope you shoved through the mail slot.

There are two seperate parking lots, one for cars and one for trucks with trailers, the car lot is on the left and the truck/trailer lot on the right, make sure you park in the right location or you can get a fine.

The gate opens 1 hr before day lite and 1 hr after dark it will close, we are going to launch by 7 AM, all people need to be there for the random drawing early so we can get gone by 7, please and thank you !!!

This is starting to get exciting and I can not wait to meet all of you !!!
