This is my 3rd Zoo-De-Mack event for MAC!!

You must pay the registration fee for yourself from Zoo-De-Mack website!!
Registration $55 through May 4th, $70 thereafter.
The fee includes a round-trip ferry ticket, $23 worth and can be used later days.

The MAC event fee only covers accommodation and shuttle fee going back to Boyne form Mackinaw for driver(s).
We are going to stay cabins in Mackinaw Mill Creek Campground for both Friday and Saturday night.

I decided to stay at the same place for both nights this year.
It is far from Boyne, but we don’t have to worry about our luggage and such.

You could stop by Boyne Highland to enjoy Zoo-De-Mack kick-off party. But, the campground is 1 hour drive way. Please leave there by 11PM and arrive the campground by midnight latest.

    This sounds like fun, but I already got a hotel room at Boyne Highlands for Friday night, and Island House for Saturday. I am doing the ride though.

    Can we carpool? I have a 4dr nissan frontier and can put two and possibly three bikes in the bed. I have two fork locks.

      I do have a receiver too. Its a large one. What size is your rack?

      I am not sure what a receiver is. I have an outback setup for a trailer hitch. I also work in Flint so I will be the last one on the way. It could be possible to meet at my campus and park in a secure lot.

    I dont get the cabin thing. We are staying near Mackinaw, driving 50 miles to Boyne to drink all Friday night, then going back to mackinaw the same night?

      The party is optional thing. I won’t go. I already did last year. It was fun, but it wasn’t something I felt something I want to repeat. If you are interested, you should go Boyne directly and drive to cabin by midnight. I will wait for you.

      Ok. I suppose hanging out at the cabin could be fun too.
