Boat Parade Will Sink Without Your Participation

Folks, the lighted boat parade needs more registrants, or it will not happen.  Register for it by going to this link, filling out the paperwork, and sending it in before noon tomorrow.  There is a $500 cash prize for first place; $200 for second.

From my observations, the boat parade is an important part of the Independence Day Celebration ambiance.  I encourage you to consider entering your boat.

Thanks for posting Troy but it was cancelled today with only 4 (I was one) registered vs. 16 last year at this time. I'm curious what happened? Slightly earlier date (they always do it Saturday before the 4th regardless of the 4th falling on Saturday this year), a little bad vibe left from the boat use fee? I can't figure out why the huge decrease vs. the previous 3 years.

I recall boaters being harassed and searched for beer while out in the water.

It's getting worse out there also. A friend of mine was at the dock about 5 minutes after "sunset" and they came by and locked the gate on him. Trapped him and his family in for over an hour until they came to unlock the gate. They could have easily just went to another gate to lock them came back. Also the random stops to check seem a bit excessive.

I will be the stick in the mud and say I like the random checks and keeping the reservoir safe. There are too many accidents and drownings. I still people post pictures of small kids without life jackets. This is stupid and neglectful of the parents! In Georgia, where I am from the checks are appreciated for the safety of all.

All they had to do was go to every marinas and put fliers on the boats :)

Very poorly publicized, IMO.
