Re: Electronics and Navigation Workshop - CANCELLED

Claire Acord
 

As far as on-line learning goes, if there is some participation such as the antenna discussion, you will have a solid framework of topics folks want to know about if you ever do get to do a hands on workshop.
I saw a photo of the inside of a BC longhouse with a sail draped over the rafters, so it seems that at least some post contact canoes were rigged to use the wind.  I will have to find the reference if I can.
I will just send any interesting electronic type discussions on to the puget G.IO myself, so folks don't have to remember to cc' in their messages.
stay well

We've already been having some discussion on antennae, and such here. We
can warm up for the Workshop by discussing some of the things we'll be
covering in the Workshop here too. But it won't be a substitute for the
Real Thing. Unless it has to be... <sigh>

BTW, John McC's canoe-building associate at the Grande Ronde res, Brian,
is very interested in coming to the Workshop, to learn some things to
make the annual tribal canoe journeys, and other canoeing outings,
safer. John said Brian wondered if he might be able to tell some stories
about his canoe adventures. I'm sure we can fit that in somehow. :o)

Brian is one of the more adventuresome of the canoe people at Grande
Ronde, and has been experimenting with using a sail. I've attached a
couple of shots of Brian in John's latest design, derived from a sketch
made by a White explorer on the bank of the Columbia long, long ago.
Isn't it just the purtiest little thing! :o)

Re: Electronics and Navigation Workshop - CANCELLED

 

Trying to discuss anything on multiple groups using CCed messages would be a nightmare. I know some Ol' Coots are so computer semi-literate they don't even know where to find the CC button. ;o) (hint: it's _not_ on the back of your keyboard <g>)

The Coot group is set up as openly as I can make it. Anyone can read the messages on the group Web page and view atachments, though they can't see the file and photo archives (I wish they could), so members of the groups Up North can monitor any discussion here. If they want to participate they're welcome to join this groups.io group, a painless process. They'd be welcome here, but could quit if they want to after we're done talking about radio, electronics and navigation.

Depoe Bay Wooden Boat Show -- CANCELLED

 

It was decided at the Boat Show meeting in Depoe Bay this evening that the Boat Show & Crab Feed should be cancelled due to Coronavirus concerns. A sad decision, but a wise one. <sigh> We discussed a possible future state ban on events, not having heard that Gov. Brown issued such a ban yesterday (Wednesday). That ban was on events of 250 people or more, but I don't know if they count that as 250 at once, or 250 altogether... Whatever, there won't be a show this year.

Re: Lunch at Lebanon Shari's tomorrow

 

We arrived at the Shari's in Lebanon and found a sign on the door saying that they were temporarily closed to disinfect the premises! We had lunch a few steps away at a Pizza joint.

Tonite I read that there are now 8 suspected cases of COVID in Lebanon, all at the new veterans' home. Maybe one of those vets had lunch at Shari's. Who knows?
