Celebrity Bocce Ball Tournament

  #

We know that this has absolutely nothing to do with water but it's almost too cold to boat and there is not enough snow to ski.  So Bocce Ball in Lake Orion just might do to pass the time.  You gotta love the logo... - ed

Join Detroit Lions Head Coach Steve Mariucci at his successful Celebrity Bocce Ball Charity Fundraiser at Palazzo di Bocce, America’s First Palace of Bocce, June 9th in Orion Township.

Mariucci and his family have been bocce ball enthusiasts for years in his hometown of Iron Mountain, Michigan. After becoming head coach with the San Francisco 49ers in 1997, he started a bocce ball tournament in the Bay Area that raised thousands of dollars for charity. Now, the Lions’ head coach is bringing his tournament home.

The inaugural Lions’ event will be held in the nation’s newest and finest indoor facility for bocce ball. The Palazzo di Bocce, scheduled to open in June, is being constructed by owner and developer Anthony Battaglia in Orion Township, on M-24 (Lapeer Road) near Silver Bell Road. The 32,000 square foot facility will have 10 indoor championship courts, spectator seating, a pro shop, and a restaurant that features fine Italian cuisine and wines. Find out how to participate...

Tall ships headed for port here

  #

MANITOWOC — The Wisconsin Maritime Museum’s first-ever Tall Ships Festival will be held June 19-20 in Manitowoc, museum officials announced on Thursday.

The festival will be a celebration of sailing ships, sailors and the maritime heritage of Wisconsin.

Visitors will be able to step aboard several historic sailing vessels that will line the waterfront of Manitowoc in a scene reminiscent of the days when the community was known as the “Clipper City” for the number and quality of schooners built there. Four tall sailing ships have already committed to participating in the event, along with two motorized training vessels.  more...

Tall ships returning to Kenosha

  #

KENOSHA - The Tall Ships are coming back.

That's good news for everyone who enjoyed last year's U.S. Cellular Kenosha Days of Discovery. Last year's inaugural visit by the Tall Ships was enjoyed by more than 60,000 visitors.

"Last year was a tremendous success and we think we'll equal or surpass that this year," said Mike Marquardt, chairman of the festival Maritime Committee and emcee at Wednesday's press conference announcing the 2004 Days of Discovery.

The visit by five sailing vessels, scheduled from Aug. 4-8, will take up considerably more dock space than last year's group.

Clinton River Trail River Trail Walk This Saturday, March 20

  #

Dear Trail Enthusiasts,

Please join the Clinton River Watershed Council at 9:00 AM this coming Saturday morning, March 20th, when we will take a hike along the trail below Yates Cider Mill and witness the springtime spawning run of steelhead trout up the Clinton River. What a perfect way to usher in the official FIRST DAY OF SPRING.

Steelhead are actually rainbow trout that leave the river as juveniles and spend 2-3 years out in the Great Lakes where they mature before returning as 8-15 pound adults for the spawning run. Unlike salmon, adult steelhead will return to the river to spawn more than once. Steelhead are a highly sought after gamefish...which is why the steelhead run in the Clinton River is not widely talked about by the fishermen who know about it!

This time of year, Yates Park in Rochester Hills and River Bend Park in Shelby Township are the destination for many fishermen. Fish are in the river now, and indications are that the spawning run will really get into full swing over the next few weeks. I personally witnessed fish being caught this past Saturday.

These fish are a real testament to the health of the Clinton River's fishability. Many are returning adults that started out in the river as part of the DNR Fisheries Division's annual fish stocking program. But, DNR biologists have confirmed that adult fish actually spawn in Paint Creek, having jumped the barrier at Yates Dam. And, fishermen report that "wild" (native spawned) fish are regularly caught in the Clinton. Other fish use the river for spring spawning...pike, walleye and river suckers.

We will begin our hike in the parking lot at Yates Park in Rochester Hills, where the Dequindre Road intersects with Avon Road at the river, where we will have a brief presentation about steelhead and spring river fishing.

Longtime local fishing guide, Kip Lowrie, will provide his personal experiences for us, and the watershed council will have information about steelhead trout in the Clinton River system and the DNR Fisherie's fish stocking program. Then, we will use the trail below Yates Cider Mill to witness the fishing activity, and hopefully see a fish or two landed.

Dress warmly for the occasion, including good boots as the trail will likely be muddy. The River Walk will go on rain or shine. If you have not been on the trail below Yates, you will be amazed at the river's beauty and the wonderful open space corridor it runs through there. Along the trail, we will point out other interesting features of the area, including the new boardwalk and steps that Shelby Township has constructed for easy access to the Holland Ponds Natural Area. This area is the proposed route for part of the countywide trailways system that Macomb County is planning, and we can provide information about that was well.

Hope to see you out there Saturday morning for a great Springtime morning outdoors. Call the Clinton River Watershed Council office if you have any questions about the event.

Best regards,

Dan Keifer

    North Star Junior Sailing

      #
    North Star Junior Sailing, Inc. is a nonprofit community sailing program, sponsored in part by North Star Sail Club. It is a US Sailing member organization, which uses USSA certified instructors to teach sailing to beginner and advanced (racing) programs to students ages 9 to 18. North Star Junior Sailing provides boats such as Optimists, Lasers, 420s and Flying Juniors for instruction, is a member of the Detroit Regional Yacht-racing Association Junior Sailing, and is committed to the education of the public on safe boating habits and skills, while exposing students to the art, science and fun of sailing. North Star Junior Sailing, Inc. is a Michigan Non-Profit Corporation formed on April 24th, 1990 as a charitable non-profit organization recognized by the Internal Revenue Service under Code Section 501(c)(3).
     
    North Star Junior Sailing, Inc. is the only educational community access program on Anchor Bay, featuring on-the-water instruction, while providing public access to Anchor Bay and serving the Clinton River community. North Star Junior Sailing is dedicated to preserving and promoting all aspects of Junior Sailing, to encourage self-development and self-sufficiency, and to educate and train young sailors in a discipline that will better prepare them for society.
     
    In a time of declining participation and interest in sailing as a sport, North Star Junior Sailing endeavors to promote sailing as a sport among youth in the community. At a time when water related fatalities are on the rise, North Star Junior Sailing is dedicated to educating a new generation of young sailors in safe boating skills. However, to be effective, junior sailing must be affordable. Rising costs and aging boats threaten this mission.
     
    Only half of our operating expenses are derived from program revenues. The balance of our funding comes from individuals and clubs such as North Star Sail Club, which graciously provides us with a subsidy and facilities. Our operating expenses do not include fleet replacement. We use mainly Opti’s, FJ’s, Lasers, and 420’s in our program.
     
    Several organizations have helped raise funds to replace the aging fleet. America True and The Blue Gavel sponsored fundraising that has allowed us to purchase new equipment. Also, the Lolly Boston Memorial Fund was created to honor the worthy and benevolent influence of the Boston family in the sport of sailing in our community. The Boston family, having given so much to sailing through their generosity, encouragement, and dedication to service, mourned the passing of Lolly, their maternal patriarch, in 2001.
     
    Contributors to the Fund continue her efforts by providing funding to replenish the Junior Sailing Fleet with new instruction boats. A plaque commemorating the Lolly Boston Memorial Fund was presented April 4, 2002, to North Star Sail Club, from North Star Junior Sailing, which displays the mission of this fund along with the boats purchased through this fund and the major contributors that have made this all possible. We also have additional fundraising activities, like last years Can Drive and Parade of Lights Auction.
     
    The program dates vary slightly from year to year beginning in mid June and running through the first week in August. The program is open to the public and teaches sailing to beginner and advanced (racing) programs to all students ages 9 to 18, using mainly Opti’s, FJ’s, Lasers, and 420’s.   more...

    Photo

    DETROIT -- The 21st annual Michigan Boat, Sport & Fishing Show this week will try and satisfy the cabin fever of anglers such as Tim Cook of Port Huron.

    Cook, 43, hits the show each year as he gets ready for one of his favorite fishing seasons.

    "I'm a heavy salmon fisherman," Cook said. "I get to see a lot of new equipment first-hand."

    The show is Wednesday through Sunday at Ford Field, and is the last major Detroit-area boat show for the spring season.

    Unlike other shows, boats at this event share the spotlight with numerous fishing-supply vendors, charter companies and hands-on angling techniques.   more...
