Join us in Hammond on Memorial Day Weekend!

The group will be having a dock party at Hammond Marina on Sunday afternoon with a PMYC provided grill out. Please bring a side to share and any beverage you wish to enjoy.

Some of us are planning on heading down the night before for a casino trip and buffet dinner. If you're in the mood to roll some bones consider joining us on Saturday!

Bring your coins, because weather permitting the PMYC Shoppe will be open, with lots of fun new gear!

South Haven
Join us in South Haven for the Annual July 4th Lake Crossing!

Flags are waving and our pride is high. The PMYC fleet will be sailing to South Haven this year.

There will be power boaters and sailboats making the trip this year. If it floats and you think it will make it across the lake, this is your chance to join the fleet.

If you can't make it by boat, drive on over and join the festivities.

We're hoping for a huge turnout because we need as many people as possible for the annual game of  “How many people can we get on the Bing?” (Bob's boat)

Slips are limited so please call ASAP to reserve your spot.
