Wow, lot's of us were searching for info and finding the same sources. Howard was one of three names I was given but couldn't connect with him. However, someone from the Boyne City Main Street organization fax'd me a draft of a press release. I support the idea of not stealing Howard's "thunder" so won't go into the draft, but there are a lot of great events planned. One difference that may not be settled are the destinations. My information (which may not be the latest) is; Boyne City to East Jordan, to Charlevoix, Beaver Island, Bay Harbor, then returning to Boyne City.
I haven't found higher than 89 octane gas anywhere on Lake Charlevoix or Petosky, with the exception that I've never filled up in the Boyne City marina. Maybe this year will be different.
This should be fun!
