    Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival

    The annual Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival is soon...July 27 to August 5. Some of the old-timers may recall when the OCer was forced down at gunpoint by the local PD back in 2008... one of the first "big wins" for OC in Michigan
    see http://goo.gl/h9HuI

    Anyone thinking of going?

    The first weekend is generally pretty low-key; the second weekend is when there is more activity.

    soooo the 4th or 5th then? It's far enough ahead of time I shouldn't have any problem with either day.

    My wife's family reunion is on the 4th. I'd be a dead man to miss it.

    Not much going on that day,though. http://www.coastguardfest.org/index.php/daily-events

    Saturday is pretty busy for me... and Sunday is, as I pointed out, pretty scarce regarding events. My thought is, if no one really can make it next Saturday, perhaps Thursday or Friday evening?? I know it might be a bit much for those of you 1+ hour away after working all day, but I am thinking that perhaps some of the new posters living in Kent, Newaygo, Ottawa, or Allegan County could arrange to meet up. Not that others from a further distance would be unwelcome; just acknowledging that weekends in August are family reunions, vacations, etc to get done before summer ends.

    I'm signed up to man the Ingham County Republican booth for the County Fair. I have a campaign to run, you know...hands to shake, babies to kiss.
