    We are in as long as they get my motors running right this year, down at the boat today and motors are in a thousand peaces for the second year in a row. Hoping they get it right this year.

    I am in Grand Isle. I will be up at the boat on Thursday and will ask Michelle our cute little office lady what is possible. I would assume the pier would be available and could handle 10-12 pretty well

    I was out there yesterday and was shocked to see they have gates installed! Ha. Slow and steady does the trick...

    North Shore (in GH) has limited slips, but they do have a short pier that could handle a few as well...

    Gates? I knew they were going to that eventually. Security guards, speed limit, gates...what’s next? Alcohol free zone?

    I'm hoping they come through on their original intention of putting a restaurant back in. It sounds like they need a whole new building to make that happen. Big money.

    Grand Haven would be great, I just do not have the contacts to do that. Keep us posted on that.

    Mike - being late to the party, both the GH/Saugutuck locations and the dates proposed sound good. We will put it on the calendar.

    Do the Grand Haven guys want to find slips for the group?

    I just check the Grand Haven Municipal Marina and there are several slips available if you out of towners want to reserve slips. Don’t wait to long ! I’m right across the river so I’ll be staying at my home slip, but can Dinghy across.

    I would but will be on a plane heading to warmer climate.

    Note that reservations start 9:00am Eastern Standard Time according to the DNR web site ! But it wouldn’t hurt to try reserving the night before or 12:01am the morning of the 26th.

    I spoke with the marina today and they said there are no large groups reserving slips for that weekend.
    She said the best thing to do would just use the DNR web site to reserve slips. ( They just passed a motion last night that all group reservation holds will be charged by the length of the slip - not the boat size. She also said that they told the DNR to up their slip rates for 2019 )

    For those that may want to stay an extra day, If the slips at the municiple aren’t available, I’m sure we could find a slip at one of the local marinas. Just let me know!

    I won't have a computer with me at a volleyball tourney. Chances are my team is playing at 9. How quick will they fill up? By phone is probably a nightmare. M

    We also have the friend of a member checking on Grand Isle. I have dealt with Bobby at Holiday Isle, should I check there?

    Those are good options but the municipal is close to town and the ease of making reservations online is a plus.
    If the municipal does not work out then I would suggest plan B
