Thursday April 7

I am hoping Thursday’s forecast holds up. Does the Dome effect set in later, after lunch. Or is it totally unpredictable?
I actually got summoned to Jury Duty Thursday morning so I am hoping when I call Wednesday evening, I am not needed! Hope to see some familiar faces if I can make it!

Re: Thursday April 7

Keeping my fingers crossed. Hoping that the high temps being in the 60’s won’t create much of a dome effect.

Re: Thursday April 7

Temps in the 60s didn't seem to trigger it last week. Sunday was warmer and also cloudless which probably suggested less vertical atmospheric movement - although I defer to the pilots in the group to confirm that theory.

Definitely an after lunch thing - depends on heating for it to start happening. Smaller lakes and shorter fetches are your friend which may be why Randy was having such a good time at Galts while we were bobbing around.

If you have jury duty, I can dependably just load the 4.7 in the car with confidence. Biggrin

Count me in for Thursday. With a great wind forecast, I hope to be on the water a lot in the coming week.

I was just excused from Jury Duty. Whoop. Now I am summoned to Lake Duty!! Forecast for wind and temps look pretty nice so I am planning on spending most of the day at the Lake.

Wow, even Langdon is skipping work 😉. I guess at least one of us have to work to bring home the bread - I might just have to take one for the team 🥲.

PS: I do realize most others in this thread are retired; ie. they have wrapped up their share of bread winning and good for them.

The bathroom at VP has been vandalized again

Van Pugh North Park Vandalism
MOBILE, Ala. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Mobile District Project Management Office at Lake Sidney Lanier is seeking help from the public regarding the vandalism recurring in the restroom at Van Pugh North Park. Vandalism has been a frequent occurrence over the past several months resulting in significant expense in cleaning and repair costs. Unfortunately, it will be faced with closing the restroom if this activity continues. Due to health and safety factors, if the restroom closes, the park will have to close.
The office implores visitors, if you see acts of vandalism in progress, call 911. The office team are working closely with the Hall County Sheriff’s office regarding this issue. If you have any information regarding who is responsible for this vandalism, please call the Lanier Project Management Office at 770-945-9531.

Re: Thursday April 7

I don't know if you agree, but I talked with a Park ranger who thought the best approach to reducing vandalism was a night patrol. I call the Corps. office (770-945-9531) and suggested a night patrol, even it a higher entrance fee is required to fund the patrol.

Re: Thursday April 7

How many times has this happened now? I seem to recall that quite a number of years ago there was some vandalism at VP and the club offered a reward and the culprit(s) were caught.* I just have to think it is someone with grudge centered around the park, or perhaps with a desire to shut it down. Someone not liking the big crowds in the summer? Someone kicked out of the park or arrested there for some reason? Seems that a little police work could identify some suspects.

*I may just be wrong about this. I think it goes back to the days when there was newsletter we got in the mail.

What happens in a black hole stays in a black hole.

Re: Thursday April 7

We could set up a web cam temporarily or permanently, strategically located outside of the restrooms. If that is allowed by the corp of engineers I could buy it and set it up myself.

Enjoy - and thank my work and school assignments; not sleeping in or taking my time with coffee. Not sure if I’ll make it or when; too much going on. Might try a short, session or skip.

I had the exact thought. I'm going to call the CoE on behalf of all us Windsporters and propose this.
