On Saturday January 29th we will visit Oatman and Big Bend Recreational Area. Sunday the 30th, we will visit Lake Havasu City and take over the London Bridge. There are many local attractions available to entertain everyone Saturday and Sunday evenings. Make your plans now to join us for the 2nd annual Laughlin Nevada GTG. Taking over the London Bridge part 2!

Friday Night 01/28/05: Meet-n-Greet at the Flamingo

UPDATED 01/27/05
We have Parking Area "J" in the Flamingo parking lot.
Check with the Valet parking attendant and they will tell you where to park.

Saturday Morning 01/29/05: Caravan to Oatman, Arizona
(Enjoy the atmosphere of an old west town)[/b]
Oatman began about 90 years ago as a mining tent camp and quickly became a flourishing gold-mining center. In 1915, two miners struck a $10 million gold find, and within a year, the town's population grew to more than 3,500. Once a thriving mining community, Oatman, Arizona takes visitors back to the days of the Old West with weekend cowboy gunfights and showdowns in the middle of town. Wild burros roam the streets of this popular setting for many movies and TV Westerns. Oatman's most famous visitors were Clark Gable and Carol Lombard who stayed there briefly during their well-publicized "elopement" in the 1930s.

8:00a.m. Meet at the Flamingo's parking lot.
9:00a.m. Caravan departs for Oatman.

MapQuest shows: approx. 49 minutes / 18.60 miles.

A mild off-road trip is planned for those who want to travel from Oatman back to Laughlin through the desert.

The off-roaders and the highway cruisers will meet back in Laughlin at Big Bend State Recreation Area. Big Bend State Recreation Area is located one mile south of Casino Drive on South Needles Highway in Laughlin. Shade ramadas are located along the shoreline in both the day use and boat ramp areas. Some ramadas provide tables and barbeque grills. (BBQ, Mod, Picnic, Mod, Bonfire..?) There is a $3 per vehicle entrance fee.

More Big Bend Information: Big Bend State Recreation Area

Sunday Morning 01/30/05: Caravan to Lake Havasu City, Arizona
(Taking over the London Bridge Part 2)

Lake Havasu stretches northward for 45 miles behind Parker Dam. Boating, fishing and an array of watersports are available. Straddling the Lake is the famous London Bridge. Brought over brick-by-brick from England and reassembled in 1971, it forms the central focus for an English Village with themed shops and restaurants.

8:00a.m. Meet at the Flamingo's parking lot.
9:00a.m. Caravan departs for Lake Havasu.

MapQuest shows: approx. 1 hour 35 minutes / 67.48 miles.

When we arrive in Lake Havasu we will meet & greet local Avalanche members/owners in the Javelina Cantina parking lot. We will stage there prior to taking over the London Bridge. After we leave the London Bridge we will meet on the island for a group photo. Lunch plans are open after the group photo.

Monday 01/31/05: Breakfast and Checkout.
