There has been some suggestions of having a fall rendezvous on Lake Sunapee. Mid-October would be a great time to enjoy the fall foliage. Hopefully, fellow Continuous Whaler member and lake resident, Firebrand, will offer to be our host and tour guide.

Who's interested?

While I am still recovering from the Big Lake and the Seacoast Redux, I will need some quality time in October. (LOL)

I am in :)

Folks--

I would be honored and pleased to run a Whaler Gig on Sunapee!

Here's the only caveat aside from early snow, as a freelance motion picture cameraman, I frequently have to go off to someplace else to work and sometimes this happens with short notice.

If people are willing to accept the unknown, I am cool with that.

How many are interested in dropping in?

How many have really good fleece and/or sun screen left this season?

How many are thirsty and don't care if the temperature drops and helps keep the beverages colder longer?

Let me know what people would like and let's see what develops!

Best,

Brant

Wait! Where did everyone go?

No interest? Fear that I may have to go back to work? I'm not afraid.

Let me know. I usually do get enough notice to actually have a life around my career.

Best,

Brant

Firebrand,

Did you know my friend Jay Brendchick. He worked for the NH film commision for a bit about 1 or 2 years ago?

firebrand posted 09-01-2004 08:34 AM ET (US)     Profile for firebrand  Send Email to firebrand     
Yes, I know Jay. We had many discussions about the state of the state with regards to film production. And more.

Anyone want to gather for Colors on Sunapee?

Right now, in the end-of-summer glow period, my shooting schedule is light. Once we get the back-to-school race going full steam, the production pace tends to pick up.

Let's keep our options open.

Best,

Brant

Brant -

I'm definitely interested, but it will depend on a bunch of things, including a lot of business travel I have scheduled for October. I did the Lake Winnipesaukee rendezvous, and that was lots of fun, but I consider Sunapee a much nicer cruising lake. In fact, I'm trying to find a slip on Sunapee for my 20' Outrage for next season, but every marina I stop at just laughs and suggests I get in line. In a loooong line.

I think I will email all of those on the Big Lake thread to stir up more interest.

Maybe give some of the northeastern MA guys a shout as well.

Any idea on dates?

I bet the leaves will be turning early with the recent cool evenings we've been having.

Phil Tyson posted 09-15-2004 02:12 PM ET (US)     Profile for Phil Tyson  Send Email to Phil Tyson     
Would prefer after October 12.

Have to haul a float October 2 & 3. Columbus Day weekend I have to close up the family summer house on the island.

Judy and I are planning on coming but we can't make it on a weekday this time. Too busy at work. Busy the 1st weekend in Oct.

I'll keep in ear out, on a Sunday I may be able to convince to my dad unto pulling the boat up there.

Never been on lake Lake Sunapee before.

If we knew the date ahead of we'd have better chance of attending.

Firebrand,

Since you have offered to host this crew of motley crew of boaters, why don't you pick a day, or days, that will work for you and we'll all reply.

Folks--

Right now, October 9 works for me and my volatile schedule.

This is of course subject to change if I get called out of town on a shoot. I have friends and family who could take over and lead the troops around the Lake.

Let's see what we can do!

Best,

Brant

October 9th is a Saterday, I'm out.

That's Columbus Day weekend, typically a busy one for the leaf-peepers and tourists.

Put together some information about time, boat ramp locations, etc. I might just tow the McKee Craft up from Newburyport.

Folks--

I knew this would happen! As soon as I posted this tentative date(s), I have received work for that weekend.

How about trying for the first weekend in October or waiting til after Columbus Day weekend?

Right now, Saturday the Second (2) works for me as does that Sunday. Anyone?

Best,

We can't make Oct 2-3. We'll have to bow out. Have a great time.

I will not be able to attend. Have to haul floats on the island that weekend. Rats.

If anyone wants to do something after Columbus Day, give me a shout.

Somebody take photos so I can see all the fun I missed!

Folks--

If enought people can't make it, let's move the event to after Columbus Day.

I have no problem with that.

Best,

Brant

Folks--

The weekend is rapidly approaching!

Are people interested in gathering on Sunapee this Saturday or Sunday?

I have some other committments later this month already and need to sort this out.

Please chime in and post some thoughts here.

I have work on the weekends of the 8,9,10 and then again on 22, 23, 24.

Let's figure this out!

Best,

Looks like it will be a very Fall-like day on Saturday, but this trip is not going to happen for me.

Thanks for trying to get something going!
