Freestylefest 2011 will be held on October 1st

  • Saturday, October 1st will be at Bolles Harbor in Monroe, MI. (AKA "The Hothole")[/I]


For those that dont know, the Hothole is a small area of water that the powerplant empties there cooling water into. This keeps it unseasonably warm through cold weather. This is usually the last chance to ride in Michigan.

Freestylefest is all about meeting new people, talking about riding and maybe learning from the experience. And above all... having fun.

I'm sure there will be a couple boats at the hothole for us to do some wake jumping as there is every year. Just remember to be safe.

DIRECTIONS

On the October 1st we will ride the Hothole in Monroe, Michigan:fing02:
Take 75 to the Laplaisance Rd. exit (#11). From there go straight across Laplaisance Rd. onto Waters Edge Dr. Follow that back to the parking lot and that is where we all put the skis in. From there just ride out of the no wake zone into Lake Erie and stay far far far away from the edge because of real thick seaweed, and then go straight into the Hothole. (DO NOT cut the corner, you will bottom out!!!) You can't miss the tall powerplant tower.

Whos going to be there and When?

Awesome place to ride!!! Especially Late season... I know frank the tank (blaster800) has caught some serious surf up in that area late in the season...

This has always been a fun ride... no raffles no bs just hanging out on the sandbar riding in warm water catching boat wakes...

I am in if I can convince some of the Cleveland Crew to roll with me... It's not to far of a drive...

Where's Party Boy and SJBrad = PARTY!!!

Looks like I'm going to try to make it out there with some buddies. Should have 3-4 X2's and a boat.

This has been a good ride to go to and I have been to it several times in the past , there is usually a pre-meet at the Bob Evans for breakfast if you guys can arrange that its a great place to start and fuel up your bellies then head to the ramps at 11:00 , There's flat warm water in the discharge area , R&R on the beach , and usually waves on the lake . I cant make it this year due to getting ready for VB wavedaze and Im nursing a torn calf muscle thats KILLING me . Just FWIW we have always had a great time and I hope you all have fun !

Anyone know if anyone will be out there with a boat for making wakes and assisting in the transport of fuel?

I'll have my boat out there, not the best for making wakes though.

I hope to be launching around 1, and will be glad to haul out anything people need.
