Pilot Expeditions - Desert Storm Agenda
Meet at the "street party" for the official Pilot Expedition kickoff. Meet up with other Pilot Expeditions pilots and crews. The street party consists of a mile long stretch of downtown Lake Havasu City blocked off with the most expensive and extravagant watercraft on the planet available for viewing. Bars and restaurants are buzzing with enthusiasts.
The Parade is the first chance to see the boats in the water. Literally hundreds of boats line the Lake Havasu channel. We will have a space reserved on the lawn for the Pilot Expeditions to meet up.
The parade starts and ends early so most the day is open.
Happy Hour at 5:00 PM - Guest Speaker Erik McCormick will be covering "Flying to Cuba by private Aircraft".
Dinner at 7:00
Day 3. Desert Storm Shootout.
Speeds nearing 200 mph on the water! Watch from the shore or make plans to get a boat and watch from the water. We are looking at renting a houseboat and sharing the costs depending on participation.
Official trip ends. Some will stay and explore and some will depart.
