Lake Shasta Rendezvous X

The Low Water Gang rides again at Lake Shasta, September 7-10, 2021!  Early arrivals will come in on Labor Day, September 6th.  Fear not fellow boaters, although 2021 is a low water year for our beautiful Northern California Lake Shasta, all is not lost! We may be water challenged, but there will still be 175 miles or so of shoreline in September, more than enough water for our boating experiences! Please join us on Lake Shasta as we dust off the Covid blues and enjoy our boats, the water and visiting with dear friends for a few days of fun in the sun! We’ll raft our boats together for optimal floating conditions!

Schedule of Events

Laurie Gurries will be in touch with you to arrange your food contributions for each of the three potluck dinners Tuesday thru Thursday. And as usual, please BYOB. We’ll provide bottled water. Please bring your food contribution large enough to serve between 12-14 people to each potluck and be prepared to bring leftovers back to your cabin! There is a $20 fee per person for entrees & expenses. Prepare for each day’s outing by wearing your swimsuits! Bring your picnic lunches, beverages of choice, sun hats, sunglasses, swimsuit, floaties and sunscreen, each day we’ll raft the boats together and go swimming. Boat owners please bring fenders for rafting boats together and an anchor if you have it. There are a couple of local dining options for breakfast. Those not wishing to picnic aboard their boats are welcome to lunch on the lake where they choose.

Tuesday, September 7, 2021, 6pm: Potluck dinner with Jim Deichler preparing our entrée each evening, on Tsasdi Resort’s deck.

Please join us for a fun boating weekend! Our boats will likely be brought to Bridge Bay Resort each day and launched due to low water.
