    Cool THE BIGGEST PARTY ON THE WATER!!! Aug 2nd-5th 2012

    What? It's SEAFAIR 2012 on Lake Washington! Duh.

    Lets Do It! ... DO WHAT???

    *Lets get out there and ride the gnarliest CHOP ever!

    *Lets get front row seats to the amazing Blue Angels fighter jets!

    *Lets see how many beads we can give away! :yay2:

    *Lets watch some of the fastest racing boats on the planet!

    WHY??? - BECAUSE WE CAN!!!


    Join me for the Seafair celebration on Lake Washington - August 2nd through the 5th. You won't be disappointed. I guarantee it!

    So... WHO IS WITH ME?!?!

    Plan:

    Everyone will meet up at the Mercer Island boat launch @ 10am sharp all four days. There is parking up on the hill and no need to pay parking/launch fees.

    The best part of this plan - when we return to the launch - we get to watch the boaters drag their boats from the launch with their outboards locked in the down position. It's always good for laughs.

    What we are doing is - meeting up at the Mercer Island Boat Launch, going for an 8 mile ride to Andrew's Bay, partying, riding 10 miles back around Mercer Island to the North Side of the I-90 Floating Bridge, partying and watching the Blue Angel's air show, then more partying, riding 10 miles back around Mercer Island after the show when they open the area behind the Log Boom at the South End of the Hydroplane Race Track, joining the mayhem, partying, having a bunch of fun, and do it all again the next day.

    Seafair/Greenhulk Riders

    - Craigo
    - pierowman
    - LA Dawg


    ******************* Mercer Island Boat Launch *******************

    Driving Directions:

    • From Westbound I-90 take the East Mercer Way Exit #8

      Turn left onto East Mercer Way which takes you over the freeway. Go through the traffic light and take the first left after the light onto the boat launch entry drive. While on the drive, stay to the left and follow the drive under the freeway to the boat launch.


    • From Eastbound I-90 take the East Mercer Way Exit #8

      At the stopsign turn right onto East Mercer Way. At the traffic light continue straight on East Mercer Way. Take the first left after the light onto the boat launch entry drive. While on the drive, stay to the left and follow the drive under the freeway to the boat launch.
    * There are alot of places to park on East Mercer Way if you do not wish to pay to launch !!!

    We will be a few hundred feet behind the log boom, but we'll still have a good view of the south turn of the track.

    I recommend joining us for the Saturday ride.
