Click here for the 2020 Calendar of Events.
Updated June 1,  2020

This spring has been a challenge for all of us. The snow birds in Florida have a choice of staying there or traveling I-75 back to Detroit. Big decision with the Corvid-19 issues in Michigan. In Michigan if you have a trailer able boat you can be on the water. If your boat is on blocks you are probably still on the hard. Marinas are closed, clubs closed, restaurants and bars closed. Hopefully, we will be on the water soon and life will be close to normal. (June? July?)
We have had to make numerous cancellations or postponements for our Spring and Summer events. All meetings, classes, VSCs and rendezvous have been cancelled for May and June. The exception is the June 26th trip on the Jet Express to Put-N-Bay. Contact P/C Joe Tatham, SN for any questions or to purchase tickets. Also, regularly check our website for updates to the DPS 2020 Calendar as well as our Facebook page.

This has been a great time to go online for education … take an America’s Boating Club class or visit the ABC Channel and watch boating tips. You can learn a new skill or take a virtual trip online to a location that you have always wanted to visit.
Eventually state safety regulations will start to relax, and you will be back on the water. As we are preparing for our summer and fall events, we will have to take into consideration the new social distancing requirements. We are planning a summer rendezvous on August 7th at MacRay Harbor and our next General Membership Meeting is scheduled for September 3rd at the DYC. We will keep you updated by email.

Before we get back to normal and as we stay inside, try contacting other members and check on their health. Maybe try to use ZOOM with your family members. The DPS has been conducting BOD meetings using ZOOM with success.
Until we can get together later this year please take care, stay safe and we will see you soon.
