      The 15th Annual Lake Monroe Messabout

      September 22, 23, 24, 2006
      Get in one last fling before winter. The Lake Monroe Messabout
      brings together enthusiasts who love to build, use, and discuss small
      boats (sail, paddle, oar). Bring a boat, if you can. Otherwise,
      bring boat plans, pictures, tales, and your interest in small boats.
      Note: Armchair sailors are welcome. Those without boats are
      encouraged to attend. There are enough boats so that everyone can
      get on the water.


      The Messabout will be held on the shores of Indiana's beautiful Lake
      Monroe (10,000+ acres) at the Paynetown State Recreation Area, which
      has boat ramps, a beach, and a campground. The campground has sites
      for tents and RVs. No sites will be reserved; we will congregate in
      the tent area (sites 1-10, 28-32) near the store that you come to
      before you get to the campground control station. There is a home
      I.U. football game that weekend, so try to avoid SR 46 Bypass after
      early Saturday morning. Here are some motel suggestions: Best
      Western, 4501 E. 3rd St., 812-332-2141; Century Suites Hotel, 300 St.
      Rd. 446, 812-336-7777; Travel Lodge, 2615 E. 3rd St., 812-339-6191
      (or consider staying in Indianapolis or Columbus).

      There is no schedule for the weekend. Typically, people arrive on
      Friday afternoon and evening or Saturday morning. We will have a
      pitch-in supper Saturday night. If your last name begins with A-L,
      please contribute a salad, pasta, or hot dish; if M-Z, please
      contribute a vegetable, fruit, or dessert. Bring your own service,
      drink, and meat.

      Bloomington is 50 miles south of Indianapolis on SR 37. If coming
      from Indy, take the SR 46 Bypass around the northeast side of
      Bloomington, then east on SR 46 (E. Third St.) to SR 446 south. Go
      south on 446 to Paynetown State Recreational Area.
