Today was very productive and the staff is progressing well. This morning started with a staff meeting, flags and breakfast. Next the staff went swimming (BSA Swimmer’s Test) before breaking for lunch. After lunch the scuba staff worked on scuba skills review, rescue skills, and providing emergency oxygen. Flags and dinner followed AND, due to the hustle displayed during the day, the scuba staff had the evening off. In between the routine items of flags and meals, the sailing staff completed their swim review, learned how to teach the Snorkel BSA program, did some small boat sailing and I think I saw some kayaking going on as well.
The ranger staff spent much of the day on vehicle maintenance. The food service staff went swimming this morning with the scuba staff and spent the rest of the day on meal preparation and internal training. Overall a very productive day.
The weather was overcast and somewhat threatening early but it did not rain. We have a 20% chance of rain through Memorial Day.
I will be absent from this morning’s training due to a follow-up appointment with the surgeon. I am optimistic that he will give me good news. I hope you have a good day as well.
