2008 IJSBA Quagg and Zebra Mussel Reminders
Dear Friends,

Here is a reminder about the Quagga and Zebra Mussels in regards to transporting your PWC and inspection stations, zones and changing rulings.

Keep informed by visiting your local boating law administrator page. If you are going to be at the IJSBA 2008 quakeysense World Finals and bring your personal water craft, you may pass through inspection stations.

Here are some good reminders to follow:
