Here you can find the many bikers tat take part in the Blessings of the Bikes which takes place in Baldwin, Michigan, each year at the locale airport. Some of those bikers have cycled over to Na-Tah-Ka for their favorite beverage and chow on this day. The tavern is located about halfway between Big Bass Lake and Loon Lake.

Not to be outdone by their summer cousins, the Irons Tourist Association has their own edition of the Blessing of the Bikes with the sleds in question being snow mobiles during the winter season. Ed Hawks was nice enough to take this photograph of this bunch of people.

But be tey summer or winter enthusiasts is not so much the question. Its that the blessing takes place to ensure a safe season of riding. So be it over pavement or snow, let the fun begin and have a very safe season. Oh, yes, and watch out for those deer!
