    Lake WA on Friday Aug 1st to see Blue Angels

    I know in another thread we said Thursday would be the day, but it seems the weather might be better on Friday. Thursday is the first day the Blue Angels will be surveying the skies.

    U.S Navy Blue Angels Flight Schedule
    Thursday, July 31: 9:45 a.m.-12 noon & 1:15-2:30 p.m. (Circle & Arrival Maneuvers to become familiar with the area.)
    Friday, August 1: 1:30-2:30 p.m. (Practice Show)
    Saturday, August 2: 1:30-2:30 p.m. (Full Show)
    Sunday, August 3: 1:30-2:30 p.m. (Ful Show)


    Here's a link to the times of water closure and fly zone

    I'm suggesting Friday because the Blue Angels will be doing a full show practice, it's not the actual Seafair chaotic weekend and the weather will be better.

    Who's in? Meet at Magnuson early?!

    Unfortunately I have to work on Friday. Had my boat out last year on the Friday session and swore that I would never do it again (large waves, alot of boat traffic and alot of idiots)! I'm a go for Thursday, but if you guys decide on Friday I can meet up with you another time. Try to avoid the center of the lake after the shows are over. When the large yachts start heading for the openings under the bridges they make huge wakes that meet up in the center. My boat is a 20' and I had waves breaking over the bow. I must admit, I got alittle scared I was going to sinker her.

    Damn Darren...if you had a small PWC then those waves might be fun. But I hear ya. I'm still up for Thursday if there's no takers on Friday...hell, maybe I'll go both days.

    Man if it wasn't harvest right now I'd make the trip over the mountains, that sounds like fun.

    You're in Oak Harbor? Definitely...come hang out with us. Rain or shine I'm going. It looks like Thursday and Friday might be the same weather wise so Thursday might be less hectic at the launches and on the water.

    I'm a go for Thursday. Warren G. Magnuson park/ramp opens the gate at 4am. It cost $5.00 to launch and it is one of those electronic pay machines. I don't sleep so I can be there at anytime, but due to traffic I think the earlier the better.

    Early is fine for me too! So just let me know. My dilemma is gas. I have no cans for the trailer. The Chevron at Lake Union, only one I know, says there is no place that has super unleaded. So I'll have a full tank but from then what? Hmm.

    I'll have the same problem. I have yet to buy extra fuel tanks. We can just run them till empty and call it a day, or we can pull them out and go to a couple of near by gas stations. I've heard that no stations on the lake have 91 octane. I'll pm you my cell number.
