The annual "Mysteries and Histories Beneath the Inland Seas" will be held on Saturday, May 3, 2008 at the Knickerbocker Theatre in downtown Holland. detaisl of the show may be found here: http://www.michiganshipwrecks.org/show.htm.

Dave trotter will be back, as will Ralph Wilbanks and the rest of the NUMA team sponsored by author Clive Cussler.

MSRA will present a program about identifying a schooner off the coast of Saugatuck as well as an update on the ongoing shipwreck quest.

Speaking of that, Clive Cussler's National Underwater & Marine Agency (NUMA)team should be arriving in West Michigan in late April (if the ice ever melts this year!) to cntinue the search for Northwest Airlines Flight 2501 which crashed into Lake Michigan on June 23, 1950. Ralph Wilbanks, Steve Howard and Hary Pecorelli will spend most of May, 2008 criss-crossing the area of the lake where the remains of the plane are expected to be located.

Watch this blog and for updates, but join MSRA as a supporter for personal email updates during the search -- even before we tell the media!
