As you all know by now, Labor Day finds a reversed set of events. Boom’s Day is Saturday, and the Football Game is Sunday. That will present some challenges to docking at the VOL Navy.
All vessels must vacate the VOL Navy Docks by Noon on Saturday, 8/30. No docking will be allowed the entire day. Fireworks begin approximately 9:30 PM. Once the Fireworks are over, a 20 minute downtime will exist where NO boats will be allowed on the docks. Approximately 10:30 PM the docks will be opened for docking.
However, we IMPLORE all boat owners to be courteous of everyone else. Larger boats (i.e. Houseboats and cruisers > 40 ft in length) have to be moored on the docks. Smaller vessels can tie up to them. Please allow the larger boats to tie up against the docks first.
Another Boom’s Day Event Planning Meeting is scheduled for 8/12. Stay tuned for more details as they are released.
