We received the following on 08/08/2022 from the Bay City DNR office in reference to the renovations planned for the DNR public launch located at the end of Shady Shore Drive; “Patterson Road” launch:
The project is still planned for this fall with a start date of September 12th. There have been some changes in the scope and timing of the project. The plan now is to also do the ramp expansion this fall along with repaving the entire site not just the expansion areas. While paving the site is great for us it is going to result in the closure of the site while the work is being done. They are estimating a closure of approximately 8 weeks with a tentative opening date of November 5th. I know closing the site for this length of time will be an inconvenience to a lot of users, but I believe we are going to get a much better product.

SSYC 2022 annual Boater’s Party will be August 13. More information to come.
The 2022 America’s Boating Club of Saginaw Bay (formerly called Saginaw Bay Sail and Power Squadron) will be at SSYC for boat safety inspections this summer on June 11 at 10 am. Sign up sheets for a boat inspection will be posted at the bath houses. This is a good way to learn a little more about your boat and boating safely on the Saginaw Bay. It helps avoid (but not necessarily stops) those untimely inspections by the Coast Guard too. Hope you take advantage of this great opportunity.
Please check your disposable fire extinguishers as the new regulation mandates a 12-year expiration date from the date of manufacture. The new regulation went into effect April 20, 2022.
