    Bill, great document presentation. Even for me it’s a good refresher.

    I was on the water this past Saturday and Sunday. Defiantly bring layers. 

    It started out warm on land, was nice on the water, was pretty cold after the first hour and that was at 3pm.

    Looking forward to meeting some of the new people.
