We have heard from several members that there is interest in a trip to Silver Lake Sand dunes. We are making our first club ride Saturday May 21st. We will meet in the main parking lot at 10:30AM for a brief drivers meeting. We will run through proper tire pressure, sand driving basics, trail etiquette, GMRS/FRS radio checks (we use Channel 7 and the radios come in handy on our rides!) and introductions to fellow club members. We will plan to spend 11AM to bout 3PM on the dunes.

The club site has details and links about the park (similar requirements to Holly Oaks on flag, noise, permits etc.)- https://michiganbroncos.club/site/location/silver-lake-state-park-orv-area

We will have stickers for sale and some club merch to show (more and more is available to order online, linked on Facebook and the Club page soon).

For those coming form Metro Detroit, send me a DM and we can work on logistics. I am headed over Friday night. It's just a bit too long for me to go there, ride and drive back in one day.

There are 12 members confirmed from the Facebook group and 29 maybe’s. I think we have some crossover, but at least 4 more from B6G. I will try and figure out the email list @JakeC and send out an announcement there as well. As long as the weather holds out, we should have at least 20 club members there. Make sure to order your stickers, shirts and hats on time for the ride May 21st!

Just a quick update/reminder. We are on for Saturday May 21st. 10:30 AM in the parking lot.

What you have to have to ride the trails-

- Vehicle
- Conforming Safety Flag
- MI ORV stickers.

Suggested to have (in addition to must haves)-

- GMRS/FRS Radio tuned to channel 7
- Air Gauge (that reads down to 10PSI). I will likely start at 20PSI, but 15psi is very common and often considered a safe pressure to keep your bead seated on the rim.
- Recovery Strap
- Shovel

There should be a good group, so lots of compressors, kinetic ropes, traction boards etc. to get the "more stuck" vehicles out, so don't worry about building a big kit specifically for this event.

For anyone headed to Silver Lake tomorrow, We are heading to breakfast at The Golden Eatery about 8:45
(231) 873-3663

We will then head over to the dunes parking lot to see if anyone needs help with flags, airing down, whatever. “Drivers Meeting” is at 10:30. It might be a mixed bag weather wise, but it should make for a bit easier time in the dunes. I can’t wait to see some Broncos in the wild again!
