Welcome to LSCN. Glad you found it. There was a thread started about the fireworks schedule. I think another site that had all them on a calender was found in Lake Discussion. If I find it I will post it.

What time do you have to get anchored in the Detroit River to get a good spot for this Wednesday's Fireworks?? I've been down there a few times before, but it's been several years.

Any new rules (wakes, river closings, etc) that I should know about?? I know they close the river accross where the barges are, but I haven't found out what the actual boundaries are for the safety zone... I would think I would be in a NOTAMs, but haven't found it yet. I know about the 'no wake" above the Belle Isle bridge too... but is there any other in place for the event?

Thanks

Kev

OK, checking again I found the rules for the Detroit River are now posted (below).

But I am still interested in hearing what other people know about timing on getting down there in time to get a good anchoring spot.... if you went last year, what was it like?

Detroit, MI.

(a) Location. The following areas are temporary safety zones:
(1) The first safety zone area will encompass all waters of the
Detroit River bounded by the arc of a circle with a 900-foot radius
with its center in approximate position 42[deg]19'23'' N,
083[deg]04'34'' W (NAD 83).
(2) The second safety zone area will encompass a portion of the
Detroit River bounded on the South by the International Boundary line,
on the West by 83[deg]03'30'' W, on the North by the City of Detroit

Click the My Control link at the top of the screen to get to the edit profile screen.

And you want an LSCN burgee. Then you can be seen at more of a distance.
