Lake Havasu group receives boating safety award

The Lake Havasu Marine Association received the Hollister Award at the recent annual meeting of the Western States Boating Administrators Association in Flagstaff, Ariz.

The award recognizes outstanding service in the field of boating safety by individuals or groups.

“Clearly the LHMA has made a positive impact to recreational boating safety in the Lake Havasu area and they are to be commended,” Arizona Game and Fish Department state boating law administrator Kevin Bergersen said in a statement.

The association has been active in fulfilling its mission to provide a safe, clean lake and river environment by enhancing the public’s boating experience. The group is composed of boating industry businesses, 77 dues-paying Lake Havasu-based community businesses and representatives of local governments.

Association president and CEO Jim Salscheider said the award recognizes the group’s boating safety projects, including Designated Operator, promoting a sober driver for every boat; Designated Captains; the Pack-It-In/Pack-It-Out Trash Bag clean-lake program; the creation of a half-mile-long deep-water channel between the northern section of the lake and the entrance to the upper river and Topock Gorge; the installation of new lake navigation/hazard buoys; and a much-needed dock renovation project at the Windsor Beach launch ramp.

The Western States Boating Administrators Association established the Hollister Award in May 1962 to recognize Sen. John J. Hollister Jr. of California, who was then known as the “father of good boating legislation.
