Recreation, Cookout, Board/Member Meeting Saturday, June 23 in Belgrade 2019
Val and Sam Hudspath have generously offered to be our hosts for the June 23 Board/Member meeting. They can be found at 40 Abena Shores Drive, Belgrade 04917, on the shores of Great Pond. There are many opportunities for activities in the Belgrade Lakes area. Plan to meet at their home around 10 am, and engage in whatever adventure you wish. We’ll plan to enjoy a meal together at 1pm with the Board Meeting following at 2pm.
Likely activities include:
Paddling – The lawn at the Hudspath’s is flat with a sandy beach from which you can launch canoes or kayaks. They have 3 single kayaks and 1 tandem kayak (or you can bring your own). You can paddle Great Pond and its islands or paddle to the Post Office in Belgrade Lakes, pull up and enjoy a walk around town.
Motor boating – You can launch your own craft from a nearby public boat launch. The Hudspaths also have a pontoon boat.
Biking – Rt. 27 has a wide shoulder in the area and many locals bike on it.
Hiking – There are some easy to moderate trails in the area. Check out www.7lakesalliance.org for descriptions of hikes and maps. Click on “Land” at the top menu bar. The hikes are 2-5 miles from the Hudspath’s house.
Cookout at 1pm – CVOA will provide foods for the grill, burgers and more. Please plan to bring sides, desserts, and BYOB.
Board/Member meeting at 2pm, we hope you will stay for the meeting.
Directions to Val’s:
If coming from Augusta take Rt. 27 North. At Carter Marine in Belgrade take a sharp right onto Sahagian Road, a paved road. After about 1/3 of a mile turn left at Abena Shores Drive. They are the 3rd house on the left. Park in the driveway or on the lawn.
If you are coming from Rt. 2, take Rt. 27 south to Belgrade Lakes. About 1.5 miles south of the town, Sahagian will be on your left at Carter Marine.
Please contact Val at firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know if you are coming, what you will be bringing to share, and in what activity you might be participating. That will help us plan for the grilling and activities.
