     All Great Lakes Cruising Club members and guests are welcome June 1 at the 2024 Lake Erie Picnic. The picnic is at Herl’s Harbor Marina, east of Port Clinton, Ohio (E-16.8). 

     It starts at noon, but earlier arrivals are fine. The site has a large sheltered backup location in case of rain. Prepare to tell tall boating tales, renew friendships, and welcome new GLCC members. 

     It’s a classic picnic setup: Hamburgers, hot dogs, sides, condiments, plates, plasticware, soft drinks, cups, and water will be provided. Picnickers are welcome to bring a dish or dessert to share. They also can bring their own adult drinks. Lawn chairs are encouraged. 

     Register early on the GLCC website. Cost is $10 USD for adults. Guests ages 13 to 18 years eat for $6 USD, and children age 12 and under eat free. Call Herl’s Harbor at 419-797-2173 to bring your boat to the picnic. 

     Questions? Please contact Port Captain Ken Vannorsdall, 937-266-0888, or Rear Commodore Jim Ehrman, 330-697-8878,
