    It’s about time we start discussing if and where we want to gather this year.
    In the past we have done South Haven, Manistee and Grand Haven on the East side of Lake Michigan, any interest in Wisconsin or Illinois? Dates?

    Silly question...someone told me the Blue Angels were every other year in TC. Are they back again this year? Watching the show from my boat with the kids is a bucket list item for sure.

    I would love to meet up again if the timing works out!

    We were in Racine for a meet up sponsored by Weber Yachts and CSR member Carver370 and it was a great place for a meet up for sure.

    That would indeed be a great time. Just don't think timing works for us at this point.

    Sutton’s bay would be great. Charlevoix wouldn’t be bad either. July 3 might be a challenge with slips

    Slips at Sutton’s Bay can’t be reserved until April 15th, they have a from you can fill out and email your request. If I get enough interest I can call ahead and give them a heads up.
    So far our plan is to try get slips or tie up in the harbor then make an early run down to TC to watch the air show then back to Sutton’s Bay.

    He's back!! The July 3rd date wasn't set in stone. Jeff and I were meeting in Suttons Bay and if we can't get slips, were going to anchor out for the night, then head to Traverse City to watvh the Blue Angels. We are open for other dates too. Mike

    My month of July is all open for us. Jeff said something about the Blue Angels in Milwaukee on the 25 and the 26, or we might be able to both 7/3 and 7/25 and 7/26 not sure about anchoring in the bay lol.

    Hey Jim,
    There is an anchorage at the south end of Sutton’s Bay protected by west, south and east winds.
    We will be at the Lakeshore State Park marina in Milwaukee July 24 & 25. Stee6043 will be there also.
    Hope to see ya

    Have you been to Lakeshore before? We haven't ventured to the WI side just yet but would like to.

    I just checked their website and (surprisingly) there are still several slips available at Lakeshore for the weekend of the airshow (July 25/26). This shocks me. With the Blue Angles flying I would have assumed those slips would be fully booked the second they became available.

    The only downside I see to this marina is that there are no water hookups. But I can survive a weekend on 40 gallons...if I keep the wife out of the shower :)
