Sounds like a great idea to me John! Although, with the short summers and all the other boating events going on I think it would be a hit or miss event with a lot of us---including me. We could just pick one day out of the weekend (probably in August) and keep it light & simple----maybe the "sand bar" on Torch would be the main focal point or rendezvous.Originally Posted by JB4Boyne
If the water conditions are pretty much calm out on Grand Traverse Bay, then one day out of the weekend I would like launching from Elk Rapids and boating around the bay area---especially by Marion/Power Island.
In other words, one day on Torch and the other out on Grand Traverse Bay water conditions permiting. Otherwise, I would probably spend both days on Torch Lake.
Just thought I would also post some shots of Bay Harbor I took a couple years ago. Clarity of the shots may not be all that clear. Also, I cannot get the right angle or a shot that's good enough to do Bay Harbor any justice. You have to experience it in person. It is a beautiful harbor!
