Has anyone been up to Ferguson creek area? I hear that is supposed to be Center Hill's party cove? I went up there once this past summer, but nothing much was happening.

Our family hangs out up around Cookeville dock in Dry Creek or Eagle Creek close to Sligo. We occasionaly get down to Hurricane or Mine Lick depending on the amount of boats out. We would love to come hang out if someone wants to put a gathering together once the weather warms up!

Well how did the carpet removal go? I was going to try to make it down there, but my butt stayed attached to the couch all day watching the pre race - race - post race tv...I feel guilty I should have been out cleaning on the boat.

All you guys that are near hurricane holler at me. slip number is either j13 or 14 i forget!! boat name is endless summer!!

when it warms up i will do some recon work and find us a place to meet up!!

ya'll send me some suggestions of what we are looking for.
what do we want to do there? hang out? ski? board? these will be important to finding a spot!!

volfan and bigbadblue you can just holler at me at the dock. anybody else just stop by or flag me down on the lake. i am not hard to spot 97 205 with me, wife, and four kids!!! lol

also i not oppossed to starting some kinda group!! someone pm'd me and asked about doing something similar to csm on center hill. i am up for it but first i want to go to csm and check it out. i am sure there is a TON of prep work involved!! but hey why not we have the best lake in the south, so why not show it off!!!

volfan said a "ski club" did not interest him, but skiing is not all we can do!! we can make it just a group of people that hang out together!!
I am planning a get together cookout kinda thing prob on my houseboat at hurricane the first part of april so you guys email me and start sending me ideas!! thanks look forward to meeting u all!!

Yeah I am not much on skies, but I do like to wakeboard (not any good at it) I make for a good laugh when I am doing it! I am 250 lbs so I do not get alot of air. That is a good thing cause I do not fall as far, but I do fall hard.

I like floating with my cooler full of Miller's by me!

Let me know what I can do to help in the planning.

VOLFAN

My fav. weekend on Center Hill is always the 4th of July! Sligo and Cookeville Boat Dock always has a firework show. I am always sure to be out there so I can watch those. They are by no means the best around but it cool sitting out on the lake watching.

I am into something like a ski/board club ... me and boarding do not mix but man I can drive a mean straight line at 22 MPH. We are always looking for more people to ski with. We are mostly open water skiers but my kids would love to start skiing the course. I did get my 15 off pass last year at 34 before I blew out my shoulder. Did I mention I need to lose some weight also? :)

I am easy to spot at the lake a 94 205 with a million kids on with a dad that is grumpy because he never gets a turn anymore.

ShamrockIV
02-20-2008, 10:42 AM
well we were looking for something a little less structured than patriotic ski club i think. i do not want to steal people from them but i have not heard from them in awhile and i thought just a group of us tmc folks would be fun!! am i going out on a limb or you guys in? thanks!!as for our event let me go to csm and also work out some details. from my initial thoughts and starting to plan seems like alot of work. i would like to get comfirmed help and have out first meeting before we commit to this. i do not think i can handle it all by myself!!we will discuss this at our first meeting. i will figure out the dates!!

think of possible name like " the center hillbillies" stuff like that!!

VOLFAN
02-20-2008, 12:30 PM
I think the 2nd weekend in April will work good for me to have the first meeting.

You can put me down to bring some apple pie in jar and some cold Miller Lite and anything else I can bring food wise.
