Re: Upcoming meeting concerning Seacrest ferry dock

Is this a CRITICAL meeting? No. No need of anyone to dump important personal activities for this. The one 9 years ago was. That only happened after about half a dozen of us harassed Parks and the City council a bunch. Took months of work to get that meeting. OTOH it is a good place to get your polit...

Re: Upcoming meeting concerning Seacrest ferry dock

Chris is right, I am being a bit snippy. OTOH what I see after a lot of effort over a lot of years is some divers taking any excuse at all of actually doing some work for the community at large. Divers do make the effort to show up for a night dive at Seacrest. Why is it so hard to show up around th...

Re: Upcoming meeting concerning Seacrest ferry dock

Gad, SCUBA is littered with political wimps. I appreciate that Mike R. DID take the time to call. Sadly, I did not. This IS an omission on my part. OTOH, I'm gonna pull a tad of rank here as I was doing this long before Mike came on board. I DID say this is NOT an attempt to take Seacrest away from ...

The internet is an amazing place. You really can learn an incredible amount here. OTOH it's a bit like being in a library where every other book is the 'Enquirer Magazine'.

Re: Upcoming meeting concerning Seacrest ferry dock

Well, it appears there was a server SNAFU and I and my posting was wiped out of existence... Oh well. So, again, near as I can recall. First-this is NOT just a meeting for WSA. This is a meeting for as MANY divers as possible. The City NEEDS to know that we WILL be included in the planning process g...
