Depending on the dates I am interested as well. We would be coming down from British Columbia. We can camp or motel whatever the majority want

Excitedly I went on line this morning to make reservations and noticed that the web page had been up dated. It now has a new date for the start of taking reservations that is Feb -6 for the group sites for a minimum of 7 days and longer. For periods shorter than 7 days they will not start taking reservations until March -6.
People are interested. So anything is possible.
The only good news I have had is a representative from PG&E did contact me and said they would like to help. Nothing specific though and I have not heard back from him.

The other issues are the awesome new snow pack that has arrived in the mountains. The West has needed this and it is beautiful. The brunt of the storm was slightly south of Lake Almanor. The Tahoe region is sporting a more than 20 ft. snow pack and in some areas over 30 ft. Just like the good old days. Lake Almanor region has a 3.5-4 ft. snow pack with much deeper amounts in the high elevations. This means lots of run off. I get the idea that everyone is rearing to go and would like an early spring (late May or early June) event to start the year off. Mother Nature is in control in the Mountains.

Early season on Lake Almanor especially after a big winter can be dangerous with lost of floating logs and broken docks. I start my boating season removing junk from the water and many others do also. So, sorry for more delays for a posted date. But I am not giving up and I wanted to keep you all posted.

The First Annual CorrectCraftFan.com West Coast Reunion has a date set for July 29, 2017. It will be located in beautiful Lake Almanor California. So get your reservations at a local camp sites or hotel. There are other places to stay in the area if you do your own searches. There are lake side lodges, private home rentals, and private camp grounds all on the lake shore. Chester is a small community just off of the lake shore about 15-20 min. to a boat ramp. Plumas Pines resort has cabin rentals and docking. Susanville is 45-60 min from a boat ramp. Greenville is about 20-30 min. from a boat ramp.

Come up and enjoy the cooler weather and cool clean waters of Lake Almanor. It is located at the foot of Mt. Lassen at an elevation of 4500 ft. In the mountains you must always be prepared for any type of weather, hot days and cool mornings and evenings, bring sweat shirts, and jackets even though the California Valley temps are reaching over 100 degrees this time of year. There will be more details available as the date approaches.
Below, I have listed a few hotels and Rocky Point Camp Ground as just idea of places to stay..

This sounds interesting.   About 3 hours out of Sacramento.
I am going to see if this fits our summer.
Thanks for your efforts.

Good morning West Coast members on this beautiful Cesar Chavez State Holiday. Just a little up date. Lake Almanor is so full that the boat docks have been closed. The docks are floating but the ramps to get to the docks are under water at the shore end of the ramps. It is going to be an awesome season.
Since I have set a date for The West Coast Correct Craft Fan Reunion there has not been much talk on here about this event. Is this due to a lack of interest? Large distances that many would need to travel? Does the July 29 not work for people? Another possible date would be August 12 if that works better for people, let me know.

Hi JD, You asked a valid question a couple of posts above, and I wanted to respond to that.   There are a couple reasons that I won't be able to attend,   Distance is definitely an issue for me.   ~15-20 hours of windshield time each way with 3 kids and a dog in the back seat doesn't sound doable at this stage of my life, although that may change for me as my kids get a little older.   We also are laying out our summer with other groups in mind, a couple of church events, and Wake the World are both on our calendar this summer, and we have a conflict with the July weekend for one of those events.     I do appreciate that you took the time to plan an event and a location.

I totally under stand the distance issue. Just got back from vacationing with the family and two dogs. We drove up to the Columbia River and then skied Mt Hood Meadows. Visited Evergreen Aviation museum in Mcminnville OR.
That is one of the reasons I posted the distances in the post. But some people are into traveling and it works for them. I am in your situation and knew traveling would not work so putting the event on is easier for me.

I still don't have a final calendar. My Daughters end of season meet is weekend, and it is still to be determined if she will swim in the area championships 29th and 30th. Boat is in the shop as well. I probably won't know until next week, but it's not looking very likely that I/we can attend.

Thanks for the heads up. I have secured a water front camp site at Rocky Point Campground and will be using that as my home away from home until after the event, the Airstream is setup and boat is anchored right in front of the trailer.
