Re: Season Opener Messabout Saturday -- CANCELLED

I can explain the rationale for shutting down the Toledo Boat Ramp.  All the other boat ramps in LIncoln County have been shut down. This caused everyone wanting to get on the water to flock to Toledo causing a bottleneck and congregation place for people .  Given this and the directives from the governor, it was right thing to do.  It would have also put the Port of Toledo in a bad position with the other entities who closed theirs.

It should come as no surprise that the season opener won't be held this
year. Although we could do it safely enough, out in the open air and
keeping a safe distance, events of any sort are frowned on right now. <sigh>

I heard that Bud has shut down the airport boat ramp near Toledo. Seems
extreme, seeing as how you don't need a group to go boating, but
probably part of the campaign to keep people from the interior visiting
the Coast...

Take care of yourselves, and wash your hands.

Steam is the friend of man. Steam engines are very human. Their very
weaknesses are understandable. Steam engines do not flash back and blow
your face in. They do not short-circuit and rive your heart with
imponderable electric force. They have arms and legs and warm hearts and
veins full of warm vapor. Give us steam every time. You know where you
are with steam. (William McFee)
