      Hi Ed, This link is the BMTA Club site.
      http://www.bmta.org
      They now have a very good "map" section. The maps are
      nice and I am going to check them with mine for any
      relocations. Check out the photos for the swinging
      bridge.
      Don't tip your canoe, I am sure any water will be
      very cold. Bill in Texas
