DATE:             TUESDAY, JULY 17, 2018
TO:                  ALL MEDIA OUTLETS
FROM:            SHERIFF LELAND FALCON
SUBJECT:      JAMMIN ON THE LAKE

 

"JAMMIN ON THE LAKE”, is scheduled for this Saturday, July 21, 2018 in the Lake Verret / Bayou Maxile area.  The event is scheduled to begin at 9:00 a.m. and will end at 5:00 p.m., in accordance with Wildlife and Fisheries Permit No. 2018-44.

As boaters arrive, you will see certain areas cordoned off such as a safety lane to and from the barge on the northeast shoreline which will also act as an emergency lane.

Additionally, there will be an area roped off for swimmers.  No vessels will be allowed within this area.  On that note, water depth will be greater at this location than in past years.  Parents are urged to use appropriate flotation devices for their children and to maintain a watchful eye.

The main travel channel shall not be obstructed as to halt or delay thru or commercial traffic in any way whatsoever.

Weather conditions will be continuously monitored by law enforcement and event representatives.

Anyone who plans on mooring a houseboat for the event shall not extend south past midway of the channel.  If your houseboat will remain on site overnight, a white light must be displayed and must be visible from 360 degrees between the hours of sunset and sunrise.

Attendees of the event should be mindful of a large presence of law enforcement who will be in the area.

Please inform yourself of all marked boundaries as you arrive.  If someone does not adhere to the rules, you will be asked to move.

All procedures implemented for the event were established to protect the swimming and boating public.

If you consume alcoholic beverages, please designate an operator for your vessel.

While we wholeheartedly support the efforts of everyone involved including the public who will attend, we want it to be a fun filled, incident free event.
