Want to go sailing?  Of course, living in the Great Lakes State, this has to have come up.  The BSA Michigan Crossroads Council owns a 52-foot sailboat called Retriever that is based in Mackinaw City and that may be the perfect answer to expanding our Michigan horizons.  More details to come.  For now, this is just to get the word out.  We are targeting Aug 6 - 11.  We will have to make a reservation very soon, so check your calendars and sign up on the registration page.  Look for more information soon.
