Suttons Bay Flotilla Home Page
2013 Floatilla is scheduled for Saturday August 31, 2013! Save the dates because we need to set the record this year and we need your participation!!
Sunday we will paddle the Boardman and Monday, (labor Day) we can paddle either the Manistee, Platte or perhaps even the Crystal if the water levels are higher than normal.
I believe we need over 1902 kayakers and canoeists to break the Guinness Book of World Records. Last year we had 1750 attendees. 152 short of the record! The 52 members who went last year all had a great time. So I want to encourage everyone to make an effort to attend this year. We can make a difference!! So please begin making your plans for the time off or make your schedules now for this weekend.
Ok......I'm suggesting we camp at Interlochen State Park since it's everyone favorite place to stay. I have secured site 55 on the Duck Lake Side. It's not too far of a drive to Suttons Bay and we'll need a place to rendezvous for our paddle on Sunday anyway. Perhaps on Monday we could head over and do a section of the Platt which goes out to Lake Michigan.
You'll need to call the state park[masked] or visit this website to make your reservation: http://www.midnrreservations.com/ You'll need a State Vehicle pass on your license plate to avoid a vehicle pass.
Any questions, give me a call. [masked]
**UPDATE TO MY PLANS** I am planning on walking the Mackinac Bridge on Labor Day instead of kayaking. Those interested in joining me for the 5 mile walk please let me know. Brian
