    This is great news for boaters and beach goers in West Michigan. Below is an email from Ed Verhamme who is hosting the informational meeting May 1. Please share with other interested parties. – The attached flyer has an RSVP link that will help us with how many people to expect.


    Please spread the word!

    Mr. Hawley,


    Here is the email I promised.


    I am trying to coordinate with local organizations in Holland to deploy a real-time environmental data buoy in the nearshore waters of Lake Michigan.  I’d like to try to identify additional supporters of the buoy in Holland, which is why we are hosting an information session on May 1, 6 PM @ Boatwerks in Holland (flyer attached).   I believe a buoy capable of measuring wind speed, wave heights, and water temperature would be a valuable resource to the large boating community as well as the swimmers, search and rescue organizations, National Weather Service, and others.


    This information session is an opportunity for everyone who has an interest in the buoy to come together and talk about its potential use/value and learn what LimnoTech’s plans are for 2012 to do a pilot deployment in Holland and what it would take to deploy the buoy again in 2013 and beyond.     The only thing that I ask is that people RSVP by filling out their contact info at http://bit.ly/buoymeeting  I hope to see you on May 1.  We will provide refreshments and light appetizers.  Folks are welcome to stay and eat afterwards at Boatwerks and ask more questions.


    We are inviting people from the sailing clubs, marinas, Consumer’s Energy Hope College, National Weather Service, and others.  Please forward this on to other folks that you think might be interested. I’ve also attached other information about a buoy we deployed off the Cook Nuclear Power Plant in 2011 and a pdf flyer showing the buoy in addition to a flyer about my companies technical skills in this area. 


    Let me know if you have any questions about the buoy information session or this project.
