We are going to have an exciting meeting on Tuesday evening this week, February 09, 2016. We start at 7:30 pm.
First, Henry will be cooking giant dogs with chili, Shorty’s cole slaw, and baked beans. There will also be some ice cream for desert.
Second is our guest speaker from University of Miami, Lisa Kaminsky, Ph.D. She is
studying the water quality of Biscayne Bay and sampling salinity, bacteria, etc… She was supposed to be at the last meeting, but was struck by the virus going around. She has arranged to present this meeting.
Third, this Saturday, February 13 is our annual outing to Lake Okeechobee. Everyone remembers how much fun this trip is. We are planning it to be independent of wind problems.
You might ask how that can be done? Well, we are planning to launch on the lee side of the shore depending on the wind direction.
There are three potential launching locations. First of these is on the SouthEast corner at Slims Fish Camp. Second is on the East shoreline at Paul Rardin Park. Third is at Lakeport in the NorthWest corner of the lake.
We will show Google Earth images of each location and strategize how we will be getting there. The winning destination will be emailed on Friday afternoon.
Get your boat and trailer ready to go. This is the only outing scheduled for Okeechobee in the whole year. Alternatively, hook up with your friend to ride and help on their boat.
Take advantage of this once-in-a-year opportunity to explore a unique area of Florida you would not go by yourself.
About half have renewed their memebership. If you have not, please bring your check.
Hope to see you there.
