UPCOMING EVENT – HARTWELL TRIP INFO

Dates:   Friday May 2 thru Sunday May 4.  
We will not be able to get into the cabins until approximately 4:00 pm.  You can come up
early and fish Friday or come up after work and join the group for dinner. We’ll all fish
Saturday then Sunday you can fish or head back, up to you.

Cabins: We have 6 cabins reserved. The cabins all have 2 double beds in two bedrooms
(4 beds total), two baths, kitchen and den area with a sofa that could be used for sleeping.
The rate for cabins has gone up this year but it is still a bargain. Cost will be $37.50 per
person per night for a total of $75 for two nights lodging.  I have assigned individuals to
cabins just to make sure we have enough room.  You’re welcome to room however you want,
just work it out directly with whoever you want to swap with.  

PLEASE PAY BILL CHASEY YOUR $75 AT THE NEXT MEETING. BILL WILL BE
COLLECTING ALL PAYMENTS PRIOR TO THE TRIP.

Food
: The club will provide dinner Saturday night, all other meals are on your own. A group
ofus will be going to Gumlog BBQ for dinner Friday night, please join us or make whatever
arrangements you wish. Be sure to bring whatever you like for breakfast, lunch, drinks and
snacks for your cabin/boat.  Saturday night dinner we will be enjoying one of Capt. Joe
Kuhr’s famous low country boils.

Boats: We are not assigning boats. If you do not have someone to fish with we will be having
a Hartwell info meeting at the end of the regular April club meeting and you will need to
speak up so that we can get you on a boat.

Bait: Bait options are somewhat limited but Capt. Tom Blackburn has done all the work to get
you the info on bait and other info you will need below. A special thanks to Tom for all his
help with this. These trips are a great chance to get to know other members better and get
in on some great fishing.
