Since we have no crews on base, Captain Rich gave the sailing staff the day off. Since Captain Rich gave the sailing staff the day off I gave the scuba staff the day off. Ahhh, no kids, no staff, is this what heaven is like?
Steve Terrell, BSA Central Region Aquatics Chair, has released a new National Aquatics Task Force newsletter. If you read the newsletter you will see a reference to the requirements for the Kayaking Merit badge. We were specifically asked to NOT post those on-line. There are many other noteworthy items in the newsletter. It is definitely worth a read. This is a very good way to me aware of recent changes and items that are in the pipe.
The Daytona 500 was rained out yesterday. The race is rescheduled for noon (Eastern Time) today. Nascar.com says the race will be televised on FOX. But the FOX website and my satellite provider have not posted any broadcast changes. I’m wondering how many of the 100,000+ fans will be able to return to the track today. The rain still looks pretty threatening to me.
I hope the weather is pleasant in your part of the world.
