    We live on the water (Boat is in front of our home) in spring lake. We still would like to hook up with the group. Is there a plan for a raft up any of the days? Maybe a Port Sheldon run and raft, or one of the bayous in spring lake ?

    To revive this, what's our game plan? We are just a few weeks away. How much New Glarus do we need to bring? ;)

    I knew we were meeting downtown at municipal but hadn’t heard anything about a raft off. A raft off on Smiths Bayou would be awesome

    We are going to have to cancel our participation for this year.

    A closing that was to have happened in June has fallen back to the end of July and will be a challenge at that. We were looking forward at coming across and rafting up with you all for a couple of days, but as usual, work continues to get in the way.

    I'm still planning on buying some of you guys a cold one on Friday at Grand Isle. Weather depending - I'll be heading north that Saturday so I won't be able to participate in the raft up. As the days get closer and the forecast clearer I'll be sure to check back in here.

    Question: Is it worthwhile to bring my dinghy? Or just plan on the raft up? I will be at Grand Isle as a base but not sure what other plans there are to get together.

    Where would be a good place to meet Friday for drinks to kick off the weekend?

    What other plans should we make? Dinner Saturday night?

    Definitely bring your dinghy. You can take a "backroad" on your dinghy right into the heart of Grand Haven. It's a fun ride. Much easier than trying to find a place to park your big boat if you want to swing into town for a drink/dinner. Or to visit any of the folks parked at the Municipal marina.

    Are most folks staying at the Municipal marina? I'm happy to make a few suggestions. I hope to be able to meet up with you guys on Friday.

    +1. It's also likely a relatively easy place to get a decent sized group into.

    If the group is loaded with beer drinkers another great potential "meet up" spot would be Odd Side Ales right across from Kirby.

    And last, if we've got any members in the group, the Grand Haven American Legion has a pretty outstanding view from the deck! Though it's usually packed when the weather is nice.
