Hello Everyone

Hope everyone is doing well. There Still Remains lots of uncertainty at this time although things seem to be moving in a little bit in a more positive direction. Now that we are in May the weather seems to be warming up a little bit more with highs of 70 . Some people have already started waxing their boats and preparing them for lunch which is Great. Once things start changing for the good we will get back on track with upcoming events and lots of fun together. On the funny side of things are barber shops are closed in Canada boy could I ever use a haircut. I’m feeling like I’m wearing a wig at this time normally don’t let my hair go this long. Please support Smokies on the water this is very important to our Club. I know there is people that are doing takeout and that’s Great. I’m sure Scott and Tom appreciate our support. Let’s stand behind them and support them.

Take Care of Everyone Think Positive and be Safe.

May is finally here and perhaps we can finally put an April we would like to forget behind us. April 2020, the Covid 19 situation and the toilet paper shortage will be long remembered.

Fortunately our Governor has lifted the ban on motor boating and we, West River can hopefully get back and have some cruising fun. Marinas are starting to open and I hope to soon be in the water ready for some fun times with my fellow WRYCC members.

Unfortunately some events have already been cancelled. The 2020 Opening Of The Island in June is a causality of the Covid 19 situation as well as the Detroit/Windsor Freedom Festival Fireworks at the end of June. The Jet Express Trip in September to Put In Bay is still up in the air. A decision will be made soon.

We know not what the future may hold. Still, utilizing the current guidelines there are still ways to get some boating time in. Let’s all hope that this month we are able to launch our boats and ready ourselves for some boating fun times.

Until next month, stay safe and stay well.

Hi Everyone,

Here we are in May and we are still not able to operate our club as we are so accustom too.  Let’s pray this ends soon, so we can get on with doing fun things again.

On a positive note, Ohio clubs are opening up (please follow their guidelines and new rules according to their Governor).
Unfortunately Commodore Keith and I had to cancel our reservations to Milliken as our vessel is in Canadian waters and the border remains closed until June 21st. For those of you still going please have a wonderful time for us!  I am really hoping this isn’t going to be how this year is going to be.
Our Governor extended our stay home stay safe order until June 12th.
Please continue to browse our website or updates and watch your emails.  We will try our best to make our situation better.
