Hello -

I just came from a meeting between the Piranha 3D location people and the Lake Havasu City Manager's office. I want to remind everyone that the south end of the Channel will be subject to "Intermittent Traffic Control" during the filming of the "massacre scene" over the next few days. The big scene will be shot Thursday (June 4), with over 500 extras and 150 crew. Friday and Saturday will be a little smaller and each day's shooting will diminish in magnitude through next Saturday (June 13). There is no filming on Sundays.

The Channel will not be closed to boat traffic indefinitely, but be advised there will be times when the quickest route to the other side of the shoot will be to go around the Island. Access to all Channel businesses will be available by land and water. The beaches on the London Bridge side of the shoot will be open for your use.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation during this activity.

Charlie, when you say the beaches on the London Bridge side will be open for use, are you referring to the London Bridge Resort side (mainland), and that the beaches on the island side will be closed? Sorry, just not sure which side is the London Bridge side.

Thanks

Thanks, Phebus, I should be more clear. I am referring to the east and west sides of the north end of the south Channel. :D

In other words, the beaches on both the Island and the mainland sides of the Channel on the north (London Bridge) side of the movie shoot.

I hope that helps.

In fact, the movie folks encourage people to use those beaches for background in the shots.

So, if I understand you, the beaches on the north side of the bridge will be open, but the beaches on the south side of the bridge will be closed during the hours of the shoot and the channel will be closed intermittently during the shoot.

The beaches north of the Bridge will be open as well as the beaches south of the Bridge EXCEPT in the vicinity of the shoot. That's most of the south Channel open on both sides except for a couple hundred feet on either side.

I have to go to Thompson Bay at 5 AM. I'll be there for the next week and a half.

Does that clarify anything?

There you go.

I found the best way to figure it out is to watch the nice gentlemen collecting overtime in the police boat. They let people through between shoots, and cut them off during. You could have to park right where you are for an hour though, if you get stuck in the middle during a shoot. If your boat is loud, like mine, you won't be able to run through during a Channel traffic shot - too much noise for the mikes. That's why I was beached all day.
