View Full Version : Indiana Boat Club

01-25-2003, 03:42 PM
The meeting will be held at the Marriot Hotel in Fort Wayne, IN on February 8th at 4 PM. The purpose of this meeting is to establish a performance boating club in Indiana. This club is for motorized powerboats with the primary focus on boats 25’ and smaller, that is not to say larger boats are not welcome because they are. It is the intent of this club to be very family oriented and friendly.

We have a meeting room reserved for our use from 4-6 PM. If you are interested in booking a room for Friday night or Saturday night, we have secured 20 rooms at a rate of $69 per night. When you call reservations, be sure to let them know that you are with the “Boat Club” for our block of rooms. This is a nice hotel with many amenities: indoor pool & hot tub, Delta House Nightclub which opens at 6 PM and closes at 3 AM and the Red River steakhouse which is open for breakfast from 6:30 AM to 11 PM. The bar looks like a fun place and the restaurant has a very good menu with a nice salad bar and a KILLER Sunday Brunch. For those of you that want to hit the sopping arena, it is a straight shot to the mall and shopping areas from the hotel.

For reservations or questions, you can call the hotel directly at (260) 484-0411 or you can call the Marriot national reservations at (800) 228-9290. You may begin checking-in at 3 PM and check-out is by noon the next day. The hotel will not have our group, “Boat Club”, in their system until Monday, January 27. So if you call for reservation before then, they will not know what you are talking about. The hotel seems to be very cooperative. So if you need anything questions or special needs, please give them a call. My contact there is Amanda McClurg (260) 484-0411 ext. 378.
