Viaje Seca update

On Wednesday I hitched a ride south with our club's treasurer to meet with folks at Elephant Butte Lake State Park.

The meeting went well and will result in the State Park making a project plan request and potential contract modification that will help us with boat storage. We should hear in a few weeks as to whether we've received all the approvals we need.

We also met with a couple of our treasurer's friends and then on the way back north introduced him to one of my favorite restaurants, the Socorro Springs brew pub.

It was a productive trip, although a dry one in the sense that I spent much of a day at the lake without going sailing or getting out on the water. However, there may be a lot of benefit for local sailors flowing from the meeting.

The State Parks department is hosting Boater Safety Classes, with one this Saturday in the training center at Elephant Butte Lake State Park, and one the following weekend in northeast Albuquerque. New Mexicans born after Jan. 1, 1989 are required to complete the course or an equivalent in order to operate a motorboat, jet ski, or sailboat.

PS I noticed that our son shows up in one of the pictures on the web front page; in the picture he'd holding a chunk of watermelon at a Memorial Day Weekend potluck at the Heron lake marina.
