New Year's Day pelagic trip reminder

David Povey

Hello all, and Happy New Year,
Just a reminder to those of you who signed up for the San Diego Field Ornithologists New Year's Day Pelagic trip.
We will meet just before 6:30 a.m.,Saturday morning at Seaforth Sportfishing Landing, in Mission Bay. 
Do not check in at the office.  Meet us on the patio area between the office and the docks. We will check you in and have you sign the boat manifest there.
Parking in front of the landing and on the street is plentiful and free. Do not park in the lots to the east or west of the designated Seaforth Sportfishing parking area.That could get expensive.
The weather and seas forecast currently seems to be much improved for Saturday, and we will keep an eye on that. Offshore conditions right now are a mess. Predictions, as of this morning, are that it will start to come down Friday ( maybe even sooner, as it's sunny and near calm here at this moment ??). I will keep you posted if conditions, other than weather service predictions occur.
At minimum I would be prepared for cool temperatures and motion, and of course we will not go into unsafe conditions.
I have not checked with the landing on any new covid protocols, but I would have a mask along incase. I need not remind you if you are sick or showing symptoms don't show and don't go. 
We do have a small number of spaces available, if you get a last minute urge to come along with us. I would suggest you show up Saturday morning with cash or a check to SDFO in the amount of $65 for current (2022 ) members and their guests, or $85 for non members. Certainly you can pay your 2022 SDFO membership at that time if you wish.
I hope your New Year is healthy, prosperous, and full of good birds.
