USCG Vessel Safety Inspections

Saturday, June 14th
By Reservation Only


The U.S. Coast Guard recommends that all recreational boaters, including personal watercraft and paddle sport users, take advantage of the free Vessel Safety Check program every year. Boats that pass the examination are awarded a distinctive VSC Decal that alerts the Coast Guard, Harbor Patrol, and other law-enforcement agencies that your boat was found to be in full compliance with all Federal and State boating laws. Frequently, such agencies will not detain or board boats displaying a current-year decal that are otherwise operating safely.

vsc

For the third year, the White Lake Citizens League has arranged for members of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary to be at several locations on White Lake on Saturday Morning, June 14, 2014 to inspect boats and PWCs, and to affix safety check decals to boats which pass the safety inspection.

Inspections will be provided BY RESERVATION ONLY to 2014 members of the WLCL. To arrange for an inspection appointment, send an e-mail to DNRliaison@wlcl.org. Please provide your name, address, phone number, type and size of boat. You will receive an appointment at a location convenient to your home.

An inspection is free and takes about 15 minutes. Make sure that you bring your registration, and documentation if you have taken a boating safety class. Click here to view sample of the form used by the inspectors. Details about the inspections are at the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary website.

There are different inspection items for pontoon boats, I/O boats, jet skis, etc., so be sure to carefully read the information at the sites above. There are also additional items required if you trailer your boat to the Great Lakes or larger inland lakes and rivers.

At last year's inspections, one of the more common problems found with local boats was improper boat "MC" number decals. Numbers must be BLOCK letters (not italic, script, etc.), and SOLID COLOR contrasting to the background (not shadowed, multi-colored, etc.). Ironically, not all of the numbers sold by local boat dealers are legal. Click here to view the Michigan standards.

This service is an annual benefit for WLCL members on White Lake.

2014 Independence Day Celebrations

Saturday, June 28, 2014


family

Theme

Our theme this summer is "FAMILY" - Use your imagination and be creative!

family

We really are a "White Lake Family"! Decorate your boat and your crew - there are lots of directions to go with this year's theme... Think of TV families now or when you were younger, great movies, and real life families.

family

Of course, members of our armed forces - past and present - are also part of our American Family! Not to mention our great patriots and our founding fathers... Since it is our Independence Day Celebration, anything patriotic also is part of our celebration!


family

Boat Parade

The WLCL Boat Parade will begin promptly at 2:15 pm at the Mitchell's Marina bay. Prior registration is not needed for boats. Decorations can include anything relating to our theme, or anything patriotic... be creative! All boat teams will receive a gift bag.

Come join in the fun!!! Click here to see last year's boats and prize winners.

family

Prizes will be awarded for First Place, Second Place, and Third Place. They will be awarded based on a combination of the Judges Boat scoring and "People's Choice" voting by lakeside residents. No prior registration is needed to vote, however you must watch the entire parade before voting.

Vote by calling 248-887-2734 (NO text messages or voicemail messages). The telephone number for voting will also be shown from the Tiki Boat as the parade moves along shorelines.


family

Home Decorations

This year we are again encouraging everybody to get into the spirit of the weekend by also decorating and lighting your docks and waterfronts for the weekend - even if you don't participate in the boat parade! (Remember to plug any lights that you use near the water into a ground fault protected (GFCI) outlet.) We can all enjoy cruising around the lake and viewing the lights on Friday and Sunday nights as well.


family

Fireworks

To cap off the day, this year's spectacular WLCL Fireworks Display will begin at dusk. Fireworks will be launched from 2 barges located near the southern end of the lake.

This double-barge professional display is funded entirely from fund raising activities, and from your voluntary memberships and donations to the WLCL.

The Rain Date for the fireworks will be Sunday, June 29th.


family

Board of Directors

Current members of your WLCL Board of Directors will be flying YELLOW WLCL FLAGS on their boats again this summer. As you see them, shout out a "Thank You" for their many hours of volunteer service which make all of these summer activities on the lake happen.

Watercraft Safety Check Decals

Saturday, June 1st
By Reservation Only


The Michigan Legislature passed a law (Public Act 62 of 2012) which states "If a watercraft bears a safety check decal from the US Coast Guard, a peace officer may only stop the vessel if there is suspicion that the boat or operator is in violation of marine law or engaged in criminal activity." This law is designed to minimize so-called "bikini stops" of vessels displaying a current Inspection Sticker.

vsc

For the second year, the White Lake Citizens League has arranged for members of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary to be at several locations on White Lake on Saturday, June 1, 2013 to inspect boats and affix safety check decals to boats which pass the safety inspection.

Inspections will be provided BY RESERVATION ONLY to 2013 members of the WLCL. To arrange for an inspection appointment, send an e-mail to DNRliaison@wlcl.org. Please provide your name, address, phone number, type and size of boat. You will receive an appointment at a location convenient to your home.

An inspection is free and takes about 15 minutes. Make sure that you bring your registration, and documentation if you have taken a boating safety class. Click here to view sample of the form used by the inspectors. Details about the inspections are at safetyseal.net, and more information about the items checked during the inspection can be viewed at safetyseal.net/what_is_vsc.asp

There are different inspection items for pontoon boats, I/O boats, jet skis, etc., so be sure to carefully read the information at the sites above. There are also additional items required if you trailer your boat to the Great Lakes or larger inland lakes and rivers.

WATERCRAFT SAFETY CHECK DECALS

Saturday, June 16th
By Reservation Only


The Michigan Legislature has passed a new law (Public Act 62 of 2012) which states "If a watercraft bears a safety check decal from the US Coast Guard, a peace officer may only stop the vessel if there is suspicion that the boat or operator is in violation of marine law or engaged in criminal activity." More information about this statute is available in this article.

While this law will not take effect until November 1, 2012, local peace officers are aware of it and will most likely respect the US Coast Guard stickers this summer.

The White Lake Citizens League has arranged for members of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary to be at several locations on White Lake on Saturday, June 16, 2012 to inspect boats and affix safety check decals to boats which pass the safety inspection.

Inspections will be provided BY RESERVATION ONLY to 2012 members of the WLCL. To arrange for an inspection appointment, send an e-mail to DNRliaison@wlcl.org. Please provide your name, address, phone number, type and size of boat. You will receive an appointment at a location convenient to your home.

An inspection is free and takes about 15 minutes. Make sure that you bring your registration, and documentation if you have taken a boating safety class. Click here to view sample of the form used by the inspectors. More information about items checked during the inspection can be viewed at safetyseal.net/what_is_vsc.asp and safetyseal.net/vsc_stats.asp.

There are different inspection items for pontoon boats, I/O boats, jet skis, etc., so be sure to carefully read the information at the sites above. There are also additional items required if you trailer your boat to the Great Lakes or larger inland lakes and rivers.

At a recent pilot inspection, the inspector said that one of the more common problems found with local boats is improper boat "MC" number decals.

Summer 2011 Santa

Theme

Our theme this summer is "CHRISTMAS IN JULY!". Let's all decorate and light up our boats (and our docks!) for the holiday weekend. This is something EVERYONE can participate in... fun for adults, children, grandchildren, and families!

Use whatever you already have, so your family and friends can enjoy a "Christmas in July". Be creative: possible themes are Christmas carols, holiday movies, Christmas around the world, anything holiday or Christmas!

This year we are encouraging everybody to get into the "holiday" spirit by also decorating their docks and waterfronts for the weekend - even if you don't participate in the boat parade! (Remember to plug any lights that you use near the water into a ground fault protected (GFCI) outlet.) We can all enjoy cruising around the lake and viewing the lights on Friday and Sunday nights as well.

Bike Parade

The 7 Harbors Bike Parade begins at 10:00 am at the corner of W. Clarice Avenue and Beaumont Drive and ends at South Beach, where there will be a picnic for all 7 Harbors residents.

8-year-old James has a special request. Instead of decorating his bike for the parade this year, he will have a "Support Our Troops" float and collect items and donations to make care packages for our soldiers overseas. What an incredible way to combine Independence Day and "Christmas in July" for our troops! Click here to read all of the details about the actual units James has "adopted", their specific needs, and how you can help (even if you're not at the parade).

The WLCL Boat Parade will begin promptly at 2:15 pm at the Mitchell's Marina bay. Prior registration is not needed for boats.

  • Terry Liley, White Lake Township Clerk
  • Robert Hoffman, Highland Township Representative to Oakland County Board Of Commissioners
  • John Kulhavi, Retired Brigadier General, U.S. Army Reserves

Flagpole Dedication Honors Fallen Heros

Monday, May 25, 2009

12:00 Noon


American Flag

Through generous member support, the WLCL has donated a flagpole to the White Lake Inn. The pole will be dedicated during a ceremony on Memorial Day, just following the Pancake Breakfast, to honor all those who died in military service to our country.

As is tradition for Memorial Day, the flag will be flown at half mast from dawn. Then at Noon, after playing "taps", the flag will be raised to full mast to celebrate the freedoms which that scrifice has preserved for all of us.

A permanant plaque will be mounted near the flagpole:

THIS FLAGPOLE IS DEDICATED TO
ALL THOSE MEN AND WOMEN
WHO WHILE SERVING IN THE U.S. MILITARY
MADE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE
FOR THEIR COUNTRY

Independence Day Celebrations

Saturday, July 4, 2009

Wakestock Logo

Theme

Celebrating the 40 year anniversary of the Woodstock festival, our themes this summer will be “Wakestock” and ”An All American Festival”. These themes should give us a wide array of things to celebrate, and many boat decorating ideas for the 4th of July Boat Parade.

As in past years, T-shirts and other merchandise with the Wakestock logo will be available for sale at the Pancake Breakfast. These items will also be available at other WLCL functions, and at the White Lake Inn each Friday evening from 6:00-9:00 pm (starting the end of April). Remember to also buy your raffle tickets for the Lake Relief Map at any of these times.

Boat Parade

The Boat Parade will begin promptly at 2:15 pm at the Mitchell's Marina bay. Prior registration is not needed for boats. Decorations can include anything American or from the late-60's era... be creative!

Judges will be lakeside residents. No prior registration is needed, however you must watch the entire parade before voting.

Voting begins at 3:00 pm and ends at 4:00 pm. Vote by calling 248-887-2734 (NO text messages or voicemail messages).

Prizes for First Place ($100 and gifts), Second Place ($75 and gifts), and Third Place ($40 and gifts) will be awarded. Come join in the fun!!!

Fireworks

To cap off the day, this year's spectacular double-barge Fireworks Display will begin at dark.

Annual Holiday Party

Wednesday, December 9 at 7:00 pm
White Lake Inn



We have been very fortunate to have had so many people who worked on a wide variety of WLCL projects this year. All are invited to enjoy pizza and pop at this holiday gathering, and a special invitation is extended to those who volunteered to work on the many worthwhile projects during 2009 that made living on White Lake so special. The proceeds from many of these projects also allowed us to put on a great fireworks display this summer.

So if you volunteered for the Membership and Donation drives, the Annual Memorial Day Breakfast, the Boat Parade, Fireworks, or the Sale of T-shirts and accessories, monitored or worked on water quality issues, served on the Board of Directors, or worked on any other WLCL projects, then we hope to see you there.

Each individual is asked to bring an inexpensive gift for a "White Elephant" gift exchange. It can be something can be old, new, or humorous.
