    The Ducks Unlimited Michigan State Convention is coming up soon! This year's event it taking place at Boyne Highlands Resort, Harbor Springs Michigan. It runs from Aug 24th, thru, the 26th.

    These conventions are a lot of fun. It is a great place to meet up with old friends, and make new ones, all who have a passion for conservation. There are many side activities, for an additional fee, again, more time to spend having fun with friends. http://www.monroedu.com/state-convention

    You will get to meet with DU officials as well, getting a chance to learn what is going on in the state, how projects are going, learn new ways to recruit new members. It is worth the effort to go.

    Hope to see you there and here is a link to help you out!

    Make sure you ask if their fire alarms are up to code now. I was staying there last December the night of the fire and I will never give them a dime of my money ever again.

    I don't know what happened with the alarms, but I kinds doubt that any of us DU people are going to set fire to the place like that nut case did.
