    1st annual NorCal AWA Freedom ride - Delta 2007

    This is a ride thread on the NorCal Jetski Crew riding forum which several SoCal riders have interest in joining.

    Here's the basic info as of now

    The location TBD will be on the delta somewhere, very likely a long ride suitable for runabouts, but with stretches SUs can join in.

    The date will be June / July 2007 so let's have any dates that conflict NOW!

    We will have the AWA crew out here with us.

    I'm sure we can find a suitable place to retire after a day riding.
    Jim (Tioari) had an idea on a private island that would fit about 60 tents on it near false river, it might be water access only though. I'm up for suggestions, but NOT windmill cove again. We need to consider somewhere mid delta, somewhere between sherman lake, hog island and tower park. Somewhere secure we can leave our cars / RVs / trailers etc. Somewhere that we can fire up a barbie, get the deck chairs out and pass out ...
    Somewhere we can ride to on a sit down from Sacramento, Oakland, Manteca or somewhere near for a standup.

    The private island could be cool but "boat in only" might be a challange for overnight arrangements, especially those of us staying for more than one night.

    It might make an excellent rondeveau point for the large group ride depending on the "beaching access".

    Here's some suggestions;

    Here's one that's got most of what we'd need and it's pretty much in the right location.

    Here's another place that looks good but is located a "bit to the east".

    Tower Park might also fit but the launch ramp is marginal and it's also somewhat eastern.

    Hopefully some of you "locals" can hunt down a prime location.

    Hard to say exactly, but based on current inputs, looks like 8+ riders. Hopefully we can push that up some more. Some of these guys will be coming from "way down south".

    Most of our group are couch jockeys, we're into long rides and wave jumping. Most of our group rides have been salt water rides.
    This should get folks "up to speed" on this ride.

    Hopefully we can get a good turn out for this ride!

    I will go, but I need a place that has 110 on the water. My Pro 785 only holds 9.8 gallons of gas. I can't get very far on that amount. Thanks for the update.

    What happened to the cat?
    the thread is live again on the 'other' site.
    If anyone wants to cross post that might be cool.

    Also Al, you need to make sure you and your vehicles make it this time
