Hi Peter,

Board,

I am thinking of running an online-Zoom on-the-water race. Sending out details something like the following, comments? 



Sound Rowers Zoom race 1: 10am Saturday 10th September
=================================================
This is an open water race, for any human-powered craft. Entry is free, to members and non-members.

Rules:

0. A Zoom link will appear in the Google signup sheet, before the race.
1. The race is for the period of exactly 1 hour, determined by how far you go.
2. Wear a mask whilst on land, before and after racing.
3. You can select your own race course, any open water, but the course must be a loop, or out-and-back. You must finish more or less where you start.
4. Use your smartphone (ideally perhaps in a waterproof case) to log into the Zoom call, and the start will be a verbal "Go".
5. After exactly one hour, "Stop" will be called, and record your distance, ideally using GPS.
6. Write up your distance, comments, race course, etc., in the Google sign up sheet.
7. Digital ribbons will be mailed to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd in each class. Normal Sound Rowers classes apply.


I will be starting at the 14th Ave NW boat launch in Ballard, going up the ship canal, round Lake Union, and back down the ship canal. A 12 Km course. Join me if you live nearby, otherwise any water works.

Re: Races for 2020 currently suspended

I am hoping to set the upcoming events as virtual races. We can create a Google doc where people can upload their results after they complete the course individually. I’ll try and get more details out in the next few days. Stay safe and stay fit!

Good decision...... as disappointing as it is. 

The Wenatchee Row and Paddle Club has been discussing whether Guano Rocks Race might be rescheduled for later in the year . But at this point it's just  wait and see how things develop.

I’ve paid a fee to Tacoma Metro Parks for the May 9th Commencement Race. Shall I ask for a refund or is there a chance we will still do it?
Thanks

The San Juan County Parks Council is trying to help fix a budget shortfall by no longer allowing overnight camping on Shaw Island. If this happens, the park will be day-use only. Ferry services, the General Store, and overall landscape maintenance may be effected. 

The money saved would be a very small part of the budget shortfall. Let's ask them to charge higher use fees, rather than shutting down all camping.
