-This will be the Official Thread/Post for the event, edited as necessary to update the information.
-Open to Mastercraft Boat Owners, and their friends and families for the 4 days, come and go as you please, stay where you choose and eat where you please. I know a few families will want to attend Carowinds Amusement Park which is open on weekends that time of year. We realize this is Mothers Day weekend and those who need to leave early for that reason can do so. A lot of owners will be departing late Sat. and Sunday anyway.

The following activities and services are planned,

-MYMC has booked the band "Cherry Bomb" for Saturday 8:00pm to 11:00PM, with Snacks, Soft drinks and Water for the attendees. Alcoholic beverages are BYOB!!!!!!!
-Commerative T-shirts are being worked on by Skidog and JohnE. Contact JohnE by pm with the number of T-shirts you want so they can plan on the amount to order!!!!!!!!!
-MYMC is planning on a raft-up session and a helicopter picture flyover.
-MYMC will have slalom course available May 10, 11, 12, and 13
-2 Porta-Potties will be available @MYMC's place.
-MC Team Skiers including Maeghan Major, Zane Schwenk, Wade Cox, are attending on behalf of MC, along with,
------April Coble Eller and husband Chris will be holding a Womens (only) Clinic on Friday the 11th, covering everything imaginable, from boat launching/loading to skiing, boarding and boat driving.
------Chris Eller and Dana Reed, World Record Drivers, will also be holding Driving and Perfect Pass Clinics on Friday the 11th for the guys and gals.
-MasterCraft Northeast Regional Sales Rep, Norm Kraus and family will be attending.
-Eddie Beverly, HO/Hyperlite will be there to assist attendees

-Public launch ramps are available at the Copperhead Island Campgrounds/Park and Buster Boyds, within 7 miles of motels.
-Directions* are posted below, on how to get to MYMC's dock from the water. Mastercraft Banners will be displayed on his property.
-MYMC will be sending event notifications to his MC customers.
-Bring your boat, but if you can't, there will be plenty there.
!!!!!!Closest boat gas to MYMC is @ Harbor Town Marina, 10 minutes away on the SW side of the lake, on Left side of the lake traveling North and on the Right side going South.

*Accomodations, Motels @ Paramount Carowinds, Camping, Copperhead Island Park, link, http://www.charmeck.org/Departments/Park+and+Rec/Activities/Outdoors/Camping.htm , Bed & Breakfasts are available. Google "Paramount Carowinds" and links to motels, maps, etc are in links on their site, by several discount on-line travels websites. IMPORTANT, see Post #122.
*Carowinds Blvd intersects I-77, Exit 90, South Of Charlotte, NC near the NC/SC border. Use Google Earth and www.local.live.com to locate maps, Insert "Paramounts Carowinds".
*LAKE MAPS Go to www.dukepower.com/lakes, left side column click "Facts and Maps", left side column, click "Lake Wiley" and copy access areas (4 pages), right side column, click on "Download Map" and copy entire lake map (2 pages). Once you have downloaded maps and you have any questions as we near the event, pm me your phone# and I will call you to help!
*On the Duke Power, Lake Wiley map, Upper (NC) section MYMC's place is 4 miles past South Point Access Area (on left) in the long cove on the right where the lake forks. On the map it is the long cove west of State Road 1150, off State Road 1155 and 1184.
Buster Boyd Access Area and Copperhead Access Area are the 2 most practical launch ramps for travel by water to MYMC's place. Mike says it's a 15-20 minute ride at average speed from these ramps to his place.

I have discovered that camping on the islands is legal on the SC end of the lake. Might be a slight boat ride to the main event, but thats why towlines were created... ride all day... campfire after the festivities.. Buds and Mrs's.. I've got ten coming.. If anybody else wants to do the camping thing. Let me know!!

Doug G, got you changed this am. Lynn and I will be staying at the Best Western on Carowinds Blvd. It's everyones choice as to where they stay. There are B&B's, motels, camping everywhere close. There are restaurants, bars, shopping centers, gas, convience stores and the like everywhere around and on the way to the water. It's roughly 7 miles+/- to the water from the fartherest exceptable lodging in the area. www.local.live.com, google earth and the Duke Power lake map is your best friend as noted in post #1.

Everyone is welcome, as a matter of fact, most of the owners attending will be there with their families. No one will be excluded, unless you are a peacock that is afraid of the water!
Some may be coming for just a day, some, like us will be staying at motels near Paramount Carowinds, some in motels farther away, some will be camping and there are also a Bed and Breakfast or 2 in the area.

Motel Update!
I just made reservations for CSM @ the Best Western, 229 Carowinds Blvd., Fort Mill, SC, 29708-6203, phone # 1-803-548-8400 for reservations or on-line.
They are booking up fast and are booked up the weekend before for a special event and the following weekends because of the NASCAR racing @ Charlotte. The motel has 50 rooms and they know we are coming, because I talked to the manager and group sales. They cannot block any rooms because I or we are not a corporation that would require a contract. So, get your rooms now if you want to stay there. It will be the same way for the other motels.
Carowinds Blvd. is at EXIT 90 on I-77. Most of the motels are on Foothills Way, across Carowinds Blvd. when coming from the North and on the left on Carowinds Blvd. when coming from the South once you turn onto Carowinds Blvd. and go under I-77.

Boat ramps are at Copperhead Island Campgrounds and across the lake at Buster Boyd Access Area, from motels, ramps are approx. 7 miles away and it is about a 25 minute boat ride from the boat ramps to MYMC's place. Not sure about how many are camping, but it sounds like a family or 2.

By that time, highs in mid to high 70's, maybe 80 and nights in the high 40's to mid 50's. Good sleeping bags and blankets would be required probably. Water temps would not require a drysuit but would require a wetsuit or at least a shorty if your bold, with water temps around 65 to 70 degrees IIRC.

I just booked my rooms. Found the Plaza Hotel on Carowinds. http://www.plazahoteloncarowinds.com/
225 Carowinds Boulevard
Fort Mill, South Carolina 29708
Phone: 803.548.2400

Has a bar and restaurant. $72 a night AAA or travelocity. They said tonight they have plenty of rooms left but expect to fill our dates quickly. It is just down the street from the Best Western #1 referred to. Desk clerk said they are undergoing a renovation right now so if you use this hotel be sure to ask for a renovated room.

The following image is my attempt to sort out where I am going and where stuff is. MYMC did I get this right?

If I'm not mistaken most places will ship Q frozen, just as long as you thaw it out real soon and eat it before it gets that bad frozen pork freezer burn taste. We usually get a shoulder at Xmas and eat part of it sliced and chunky for a couple days, them make sliced or chopped Q and freeze it, but after about 6 weeks it gets that funky taste in the freezer.

I'm buying a boat from MYMC right now. I was seriously thinking about not having it shipped, and coming down for CSM and picking it up. But at 14 hr. each way, it just doesn't work for a few days. I was tempted to make a week out of it, but can't with what I already have plannned this year.

I may be jumping the gun, but if you do it again next year, I'll make a week out of it and come down.

Thanks for putting it together.

Come on JohnE, you can work it out. UMP is even trying to figure a way to come. Besides, I wanted to see your boat before you took it home up North. I'm trying to talk kas in Milford, CT to come and ya'll could travel together if you wanted to tow down.
