Waterman’s Gathering

This Friday night, September 26th, 2008 at 6:30, the second of our Fall Season “Waterman Gatherings.” We’ll be meeting at the Gulf Place Artist Colony, right across the street from Ed Walline Park on 30-A

Bring your own guitar to pick a couple of songs for us. Or, if you have any surfing home video, bring a DVD to show off on the big screen. This is a family friendly event so choose your material accordingly and we’ll all have a great time.

We’ll have a showing of the YOLO stand-up paddle board race series slideshow, some video from Hurricane Ike, and pictures from recent swells…followed by a “bona-fide” surf movie!

The Artists Bar will be open for business if you would like beer or wine and there are several restaurants on the property for pizza, sandwiches or fancy food.

Water testing

Hey, so we are in the water testing business. With all the Stand up boards operating on the dune lakes, and most especially with the number of women involved, it becomes prudent to test the lakes for Fecal Coliform. We started with western and eastern lakes. Both lakes were absent of fecal coliform. Water tests will be listed under that heading on the right side of the page.

Dune lake tests

We started today! We tested water from western lake and eastern lake. The samples will take 48 hours to reveal results, and they will be posted here!
This is to get started. We intend to test more lakes, BUT only ones where the public has access!
