Grosse Pointe Yacht Club
788 Lake Shore Rd, Grosse Pointe Shores, Michigan 48236
ESMD will travel by private powerboats from the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club, located in Grosse Pointe Shores on Lake St. Clair, to the Old Club. Founded in 1872, The Old Club is a prestigious private club on Harsen’s Island, about 15 miles from the GPYC at the northwest end of Lake St. Clair. We will enjoy a complimentary buffet lunch, and beverages will be available for purchase, but only credit cards – no cash – will be accepted for payment. After lunch there will be a brief scouting update, followed by a 20-minute talk on the history of The Old Club. You will then be free to tour the grounds and enjoy the beautiful water view of the South Channel emptying into Lake St. Clair.
Please plan to arrive at the GPYC n...o later than 10:30 AM, which will allow plenty of time for parking and walking to your assigned boat. Eagle Scout-owned boats will depart the GPYC at 11:00 AM sharp. There will be one or two boats, depending on the number of participants, and both will have toilet facilities. The cruise will take approximately 45 minutes. Departure from The Old Club will be between 2:30 and 3:00 PM.
The Old Club has a dress code for members and guests that is strictly enforced. Participants must wear collared shirts and dress shorts or casual slacks; no jeans or t-shirts are allowed in the Clubhouse.
This event is limited to 34 Eagle Scouts only. We will plan to go rain or shine, but extreme weather conditions could cause departure delays on either end. Acceptable shoes to be worn aboard boats are those with soft soles, such as deck shoes and running shoes. If you find you are running late for the morning departure, please call Larry Stephenson at 313-910-9579. The option of driving is also available for those with time constraints. Harsens Island can be reached by driving to Algonac and taking the car ferry to the island.
