    I have a place in the immediate area and don’t need to stay, but wish to participate. Is there an option for that, and if so, how much?

    Marci & Ellie,
    This is great that Schrems West Michigan Chapter is sponsoring this event, Women on the Water. I’ll see to it that it gets added to the Michigan TU calendar. I’ll do my best to show up and say hello from Michigan TU.
    Thank you,

    Hi Tom,

    Absolutely, we would appreciate any additional promotion to help get the word out – thank you so much! We would like to offer at least one (if not two) of these event each year. And yes, it would great to have you stop by our event and give a hello/welcome from MITU – that would be awesome!

    All the best,

    I too have a place to stay nearby and am wondering what the cost would be for a 1/2 day float.

    Hi Leslie,

    As of right now we are only offering this option for a full day trip. If any thing changes I will be sure to let you know – otherwise the cost is for a full day trip without lodging is $210 if you register before 4/7. Let me know if this is of interest to you.

    I want to register but can’t figure out how, since I can’t change the price to the $210.
