Labor Day weekend. Committee agreed by consensus that Tim will review
charter, and if and where possible, will schedule meetings on non-holiday
- Steve Locke identified issue at Long Beach Marina that
boats, many without FI stickers, are tied up for extended periods of time to
the dock reserved for loading and unloading at the ramp. After discussion,

dock use only. Steve Locke will take the action to contact John Crosby to
work out details.
