Announcement: 08/29 - 10/01 - Grand Slam Western Lakes 2015

We discussed doing this earlier in the Yellowstone Lake thread. I really like the idea but I have no experience on the upper lakes. El & Bill's 2008 Grand Slam of Western Lakes is a great reference...and I am thinking that we have enough collective knowledge to make it happen.
Keeping in mind the Bellingham gathering late in August...I would propose that we set some dates that look like this...
Yellowstone Lake Gathering, Saturday September 5th
Jackson Lake Gathering, Saturday September 12th
Flaming Gorge Lake Gathering, Saturday September 19th
Lake Powell Gathering, Saturday September 26th
Some folks would make the entire trip...others would join for whichever portion they wish. The idea would be to spend a few days either side of the gathering date seeing/cruising the area. Of course the Grand Finale would be the Lake Powell Gathering on Saturday, September 26th and cruising the lake the following week as in years past.
Details for launch points etc. would develop as we gather input from everyone.
