Missouri American Water MR340

Kansas City To St. Charles on the Missouri River........

 

 

(Mandatory Safety Meeting, evening of July 15rd)

Imagine a race across the entire state of Missouri, just you and your boat thrown against 340 miles of wind, heat, bugs and rain. This ain’t no mama’s boy float trip. This race promises to test your mettle from the first stroke in Kansas City to the last gasp in St. Charles. Just entering it will impress your friends. Finishing it will astound them… and winning it? Well, you always thought you were sort of a legend anyway, didn’t you? It’s time to prove it.

The Missouri 340 is an endurance race across the state of Missouri. Competitors will start in Kansas City and finish, some of them anyway, in St. Charles. With numerous towns and hamlets, the course offers plenty of opportunity for resupply while enroute. The Missouri River is also incredibly scenic and isolated in some stretches, with wildlife and beautiful vistas to rival any river in North America. But if you’re trying to win this race, you won’t have time to enjoy any of it.

EMPHASIS: Troop B To Host Boater Safety Certification Course


Captain James E. Wilt, commanding officer of Troop B, Macon, announces a boater safety certification course will be offered from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., on Saturday, June 29, 2019, at the Long Branch Lake Corps of Engineers Visitor Center, 30174 Visitor Center Road, Macon, Missouri. There is no fee for this course; however, students are required to pre-register online as seating will be limited. There will be a break for lunch, but it will not be provided. For more information, to register for the course, or to obtain a complete listing of where other courses are being offered, you may visit the Missouri State Highway Patrol’s website, www.mshp.dps.mo.gov. A Boat Safety Education & Certification link can be found on the left side of the Patrol’s home page under “Training.”


Missouri law requires any person born after January 1, 1984, to carry a boater safety education certification card anytime they operate a vessel, which includes personal watercraft, on Missouri lakes. Captain Wilt would like to remind the public the certification is also required if you intend to operate a rental boat or personal watercraft on one of Missouri’s lakes. Participants who successfully pass the course will be eligible to order a boater safety certification card for $15. The boater safety certification card does not expire and does not need to be renewed.


For further information please call Corporal Darren P. Mueller at (660) 385-2132.
Watercraft operators must consider the effect their actions have on others: Share the waterway and use common sense, good judgement, and courtesy to ensure the safety of all. Life jackets save lives. Wear It!! Follow Troop B on Twitter for the most current news @MSHPTrooperB.

Discover nature this summer during frogging season

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) encourages Missourians to make a splash this summer by getting outdoors and frogging. Frogging season begins June 30 at sunset and runs through Oct. 31. Those with a fishing permit or small-game hunting permit may frog for bullfrogs and green frogs, though bullfrogs are more popular because of their large size.
The daily limit is eight frogs of both species combined and the possession limit is 16 frogs of both species combined. Only the daily limit may be possessed on waters and banks of waters where hunting.  Click here to go to MDC and continue reading

News Release......

 

NEWS RELEASE

June 20, 2019
EMPHASIS: Missouri State Highway Patrol Joins Operation Dry Water

Colonel Eric T. Olson, superintendent of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, announces the Patrol's participation in Operation Dry Water. Operation Dry Water is in its 11th year and Missouri has participated since the program’s inception. This national campaign includes marine law enforcement officers from all 50 states and six U.S. territories. Officers will coordinate special patrols to keep our waterways safe from boaters operating under the influence of alcohol or drugs. This year, July 5-7, 2019, has been designated as Operation Dry Water weekend.

"Operation Dry Water is an opportunity to remind boaters they need a designated captain on board their vessel," said Col. Olson. "Intoxicated boat operators endanger those on board their vessel as well as other boaters in the area. Although designated captains are more common today than ever, it’s an important message to repeat."

Last year, 574 local, state, and federal agencies participated in a weekend long event of heightened BWI enforcement known as Operation Dry Water. Officers removed 494 intoxicated boat operators from the water. In addition, law enforcement officers contacted 201,888 boaters concerning BWI or boating safety enforcement and awareness.

In 2018, troopers arrested a total of seven people statewide for boating while intoxicated, contacted 710 vessels and 2,301 boaters, and issued 84 boating violation summonses and 951 warnings on Missouri waterways. Marine operations troopers also issued 125 summonses for non-boating violations during the 2018 Operation Dry Water weekend. Special enforcement operations will continue throughout the summer months. Boaters are reminded that designating a sober operator is always the safest bet if alcohol is going to be included in their boating experience.

Operation Dry Water weekend takes place near July Fourth, a holiday known for an increase in alcohol-related boating crashes. Boating under the influence continues to be a leading factor in crashes and deaths on our nation's waterways according to U.S. Coast Guard Recreational Boating Statistics. Alcohol is the leading known contributing factor in fatality boating crashes.

Boating under the influence applies to drugs as well as alcohol. Even some prescription medications can make operating a recreational vessel unsafe. Alcohol use can impair a boater’s judgment, balance, vision, and reaction time. The dangers of combining alcohol and boating also apply to passengers.

"Enforcing Missouri's laws on our waterways is a priority for our marine enforcement troopers," said Colonel Olson. "It's important that our citizens and out-of-state guests include safety when planning to enjoy one of Missouri’s many waterways. Please designate a sober captain and always wear a life jacket when you're on or near the water."

Upper Mississippi Flood, Sediment, Drought Open Sessions

 

Following is our invitation to participate and share our thoughts toward developing a regional plan for the river. Hannibal, Missouri and Godfrey, Illinois are the locations closest to our region.

It is important that Neighbors of the Mississippi has a good showing of our members in attendance.

The meeting format will be small group discussions. Those in attendance will be asked to sign up for a topic when they arrive. The topics will be Flood Risk Management, Drought Response, and Erosion and Sediment Management. As the Flood of 2019 continues to affect our lives and livelihoods, we anticipate most of the Neighbors of the Mississippi membership will be interested in the Flood Risk Management discussions.

Blessing of the Fleet

August 17, 2019

 

 

Ahoy to all our seaworthy friends...

I am Rick Flier, President if the Blessing of the Fleet STL and it's time again this year for our celebration of the 62nd year of our organization and the gala events that keep the spirit alive and well throughout our boating community.
As in the past few years, under the leadership of Darryll and Maureen Weil, we are contacting our great friends and businesses to see if donations for the BENEFIT for the Blessing, taking place at Grafton Harbor at 1pm, on July 27th, 2019 would be possible.


The Blessing parade will start at 1pm, on August 17th, 2019 with lead boats leaving from The Yacht Club of St Louis and heading downstream, and leaving from Alton Marina and heading upstream, to join at the Our Lady of the River shrine at 2:15pm for commencement of the ceremony. As always, decorated boats will be judged as they pass by the judge's stand - the theme has yet to be determined but notification will be made to everyone as soon as that has been established. Your generous donations and support have helped keep the heartbeat alive and active and hopefully we can count on you to help this year as well.

Sincerely,
Rick Flier
President

Both Schlafly Beer and NGRREC are committed to environmental sustainability, so the partnership was a natural fit. And, we can’t wait to bring this partnership to you!

Each month offers something different and highlights a unique project led by one of our researchers, educators, or conservationists, so make sure to check out this year’s topics and come see us for a few of your favorites!

Neighbor Nights

National Great Rivers Research & Education Center

Mississippi River at Alton, IL....

 

Neighbor Nights is a community event series at NGRREC held on the first Tuesday of select months throughout the year. Neighbor Nights is a great time for you, our river neighbor, to come and learn more about the great rivers of the world, the watersheds that feed them, and the communities that use them. It’s also an opportunity to participate in public tours of our LEED certified field station, get behind-the-scenes laboratory access, or enjoy hands-on activities. Limited free food and beverages will be provided.
