Day Date Event/Activity

Be at the Dale Hollow Lake State Resort Park Marina (not the boat dock). Please note there is a time difference from Lexington.  Park and find a wheeled cart to load your gear onto the boat. We'll have a short boat/safety walk through with the rental folks, then we'll depart by 9:30 CDT.


Dive, swim, float, eat, relax on the lake. Bring your own lunch, beverages, snacks, etc. (Space is limited for coolers, please bring only small coolers). We stay on the water until the group is ready to leave. If you need to depart early, we can give you a lift back to the dock.


DFor those staying over, plan on bringing a dish to serve 10. Bring whatever you need to heat/serve your dish. Don't forget your beverages and lawn chairs.
