FLORENCE EVENT - The Beacons and Buoys are Talking -- what you should know

Date of Activity:  7/13/2018

Narrative: Do you know what Fl R 4s 20ft 4M "42" or G "39" Fl G 2.5s mean? No? Maybe you used to, but it's fallen through your brain sieve? This short clinic may be just the thing for you. We'll interpret the obscure notations and have some fun learning about beacons and buoys. This will be a short (about 30 minute), interactive class. Join us before the potluck to add to your chart reading skills and hopefully your appreciation of the absurd.

DON'T LET THE POTLUCK HOLD YOU BACK. Make an easy dish for tonight's potluck and join us.
