39th Annual Campbell Boat Owner's Regatta-2011

Our 39th Regatta was a huge success on Sept 16-18, 2011. We had perfect weather, a great beach, plenty of food  and lots of good friends to share it all with. The Regatta formally kicked off Friday night with an unusually large turn-out at Montana's Steak House with registration, and distributing t-shirts. The following morning, we gathered our boats in Thompson Bay, caravanned through the Channel and up River to Park Moabi. A small advance party of owners and friends had arrived at the beach at 7:30 AM and secured 450 linear feet of prime sandy beach across from Pirate Cove, and at 11:00 AM 35 boats showed up at the beach; all bringing good food, good attitudes, and warm welcomes for old friends. New friendships were formed on the beach when members went running around exchanging cards while playing High/Low Party Poker. Mitch Parker performed his traditional carne asada magic, aided by an advisory staff of his brother Steve, and Brad Riggen. There was so much good food on the tables that it was difficult to sample everything, but most of us tried really hard to do so. Our beach party ended with a raffle for a certificate for a boat lettering job which was generously donated by local craftsman, Bob Thompson. Sunday morning the party continued with about 20 boats showing up at Havasu Springs for breakfast. Following breakfast, some members had to head home; however, there were many other owners who continued to socialize in various coves.

     There is already a lot of excitement about plans for next year's Regatta. Thanks to all the Campbell Owners who attended this event. Several members expressed an interest in volunteering their time and talents in planning and executing the next event. Their offers are greatly appreciated. The success of this event was made possible by a number of people who contributed their time, effort and skills. Once again we appreciate all your volunteerism to help keep this event the stand-out it is, thanks to all of you.

          We hope to see even more of our Campbell friends at next year's 40th.
