Heard from a local kiter that while setting up his kite this past Thursday in the cul-de-sac he got run by some type of police official. The officer said "No Parking" and was not aware of any midweek toleration. There were no boats in the bay.

So, unknown at this juncture what the status is. No parking Memorial - Labor day?

Just be aware that if you drive out to the 'Moot you should be prepared to be asked to getuponouttathere. If so, please be respectful of the requesting authority, positive interaction from kiters will help our cause in the end.

Solution: Bring a bicycle. Drop off your gear at the cul-de-sac, drive back and park at the boat launch, then pedal on back. A little effort but may be worth it.

Chief Drake just called me back.

Good news is he is just as understanding as Chief Eder.
Bad news is there is new opposition to access to that area.

It seems they problems have escalated out there with the parties. Currently they park there and take the ticket which is only $10.00 without a worry. That is going to change in the very near future. The twp and county are increasing the fine to a much higher level and will be changing the code to make it a tow away zone. They have received numerous complaints from the home owners in opposition to allowing any parking at all. It looks like we will still get limited parking but not much.

Currently Chief Drake does not recommend parking in the area. The code is in place to allow for parking on the gravel area only but it is not complete until "designated parking area" sign are posted.

The signs should be in place shortly. When they are if you park outside of that area you will get a ticket and your car will be towed. It will be expensive because they are trying to send a message to those who feel they are above the law including us.

I asked about dropping gear off at the site and biking back. He said that was a great idea and suggest doing it until the signs are posted.

Keep in mind they are having a major problem out there and their main goal is to eliminate it. They want to be able to allow very limited use of the area but it is not their main focus. If they cannot get the limited use to work, the area will be closed to all parking.

I've got my fingers crossed on this one.
