    !!!!!!Closest boat gas to MYMC is @ Harbortowne Marina and Boat Store, 220 Commodore Court, Belmont, NC, 28012, Joel & Casey Summit, 10 minutes away from MYMC's on the West side of the lake, on Left side of the lake traveling North and on the Right side going South, midway between MYMC's and Buster Boyd Access.

    Here is a link to Lake Wylie water levels, http://www.duke-energy.com/lakes/lev...onthhistorical and the US Drought Monitor, http://www.drought.unl.edu/dm/monitor.html

    *Accomodations, Motels @ Paramount Carowinds, Camping, Copperhead Island Park, link, http://www.charmeck.org/Departments/...rs/Camping.htm , Bed & Breakfasts are available. Google "Paramount Carowinds Motels", this one of many, http://hotel-guides.us/north-carolina/carowinds-nc-hotels.html, links to motels, maps, etc that are there by several discount on-line travel websites.
    *Carowinds Blvd intersects I-77, Exit 90, South Of Charlotte, NC near the NC/SC border. Use Google Maps and www.local.live.com to locate maps, Insert "Paramounts Carowinds". Belmont NC, on the NW side of lake has motels, with fairly close access to South Point Access Area for day boaters, 4 miles by water from MYMC's house.

    *LAKE MAPS Go to www.dukepower.com/lakes, left side column click "Facts and Maps", left side column, click "Lake Wylie" and copy access areas (4 pages), right side column, click on "Download Map" and copy entire lake map (2 pages). Once you have downloaded maps and you have any questions as we near the event, pm me your phone# and I will call you to help!
    *On the Duke Power, Lake Wylie map, Upper (NC) section MYMC's place is 4 miles past South Point Access Area (on left) going by water North, in the long cove to the right where the lake is a 4 way intersection, to the left is up river and there is some power lines and an island. On the map it is the long cove west of State Road 1150, off State Road 1155 and 1184, 2600 Sadler Road, Charlotte, NC 28278-9676. Just look for a MasterCraft and someone can direct you!

    Buster Boyd Access Area and Copperhead Access Area are the 2 most practical launch ramps for travel by water to MYMC's place from camping and the I-77/Carowinds Blvd motels. Mike says it's a 15-20 minute ride at average speed from these ramps to his place. South Point Access is on the West side of the lake, below Belmont, NC and is about a 7 to 8 minute ride to MYMC's location. There are also motels in the Belmont, NC area, just off I-85.

        It'd be great to get 2 - 35th boats there. I'd love to see yours, and I know Shep will bring his if he can make it.
