Changes are coming to the way Silver Lake Dunes in Oceana county allows in guests. They’re switching to an electronic system which allows people to reserve tickets in advance.
Ron Olson is Chief of the DNR’s Recreation Division. He said the new system will make drastic changes to the traffic flow through Mears.
“Course the big benefit here collectively is to basically revolutionize the way we do this. And so we set up the system as we described to you before where you can basically reserve it similar to a campsite six weeks in advance of the date you would like to come and prevent you from having to wait in a 4 to 5 or 6 mile line, and all that.”
The park is switching up the new system because lines for the park on weekends and holidays would stop traffic for miles through Mears.
Olson said this will be a trial year. The DNR will accept constructive criticism from the public to improve the program in the future.
In January specialists in the oil industry will be flocking to Mid-Michigan. The 25th annual No-Spills conference is scheduled for Mt. Pleasant.
Linda Hensel is Committee Chairman for what’s called the No-Spills conference. She said the conference will be an informative forum.
“Although we have vendors and they’re there because they want to meet potential clients, everybody in this conference is here because we want to know what’s actually going on in our field and related fields. I think that’s one thing that’s really important, this is not a hype type conference. The scope is very limited so that we are able to discuss the important things that need to be discussed.”
The organization is moving to a larger facility this year. The conference will be held in the Soaring Eagle Resort.
Hensel said the move is necessary because the conference is growing in size. She also said the location in the center of the state will be more accessible to the masses.
