I still have yet to do some boating up there as I have always desired over all these years. The Grand Traverse area, Charlevoix, Elk Lake/Torch Lake, Indian River, Petosky, etc. are all areas I want to do more and more boating in even though I have never been up there with my boat yet.

Indian River...
Anytime you guys get up here, I would love to boat with OSOers in my neck of the woods. This Fun Run sounds like a riot!!! We spend the Venitian festival rafted in Round lake. About 10-12 boats. Sounds like I have been hanging out with you guys and not even knowing it.

Hey I finally got a boat this year. I would love to hook up with some Oso people. We've got a cottage in Cheboygan, I plan on trailering up to there and run around on mullet lake, Indian river and out the cheboygan river. I would really like to check out lake Mich. also.

That trip is Great!!Mackinac Island is only 15 miles(nice ride).
The inland Lakes are really nice. I go there about 3 times a year. My business is in Gaylord so it is an easy run.

Hey
The Chicago Poker Run on July 22-23 is the same weekend but sponsorship will allow us to offer a price of $395 for 2 and $75 for each additional. COPS board of directors is hosting the run with ???. We are working with the Resorts Casino to make this event grand. All proceeds go to the Children's Memorial Hospital.

Hey, any of you guys know where some nice places to stay are up there on Lake Chalevoix for the Venitian Fest/North Michigan Fun Run? I was thinking of possibly staying at the Shoreline Resort Motel in East Jordan on the South Arm of Lake Charlevoix. The Shoreline Resort Motel is right on the water with 30' finger docks available. However, I am open to other places to stay. It doesn't necessarily have to be on the water, but close by where I can park my boat at a near by marina or something. Anywhere around the lake is fine.

Anyway, I would like to know of some locations as I think it would probably be a good idea to make reservations now. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

What a beautiful place it is up there. Here's shot I took last summer of the Charlevoix City launch ramp.

Don this thread got a little confusing and I just caught this, the COPS poker run is NOT the same weekend as the fun run

COPS and Boyne Thunder are on the same weekend
Fun Run is the following weekend

Ian and I are doing the COPS PR and there is a good chance we will make the fun run also. As Poker Runs go the COPS one will be on of the more affordable ones. $395.00 is for two and it includes dinners, breakfasts, lunch and two nights dockage. The events are taking place at Harrahs resort so that should be nice.
