The Next Potluck Meeting is June 12th at 6:00 PM
Speakers: Coast Guard Talk and Flare Shoot (Bring Outdated Flares)
You won't want to miss our June 12th Potluck. After we have finished eating, Jon Martin has arranged to have members of the Coast Guard give a talk about how they would like to be contacted in various situations such as emergent or less-than-emergent situations, using VHF and cell phones. We will then have an opportunity to talk about using flares and other devices.
Next we will head over to the breakwater area and Corinthian members can shoot off their flare guns and ignite a hand held flare. Mike Reed will also have his boat out in the bay, and he will shoot off various types of flares, including standard 12 gauge flares along with a 25 gauge flare, and a SOLAS parachute signal rocket. He will demonstrate the new non-incendiary signal device. Mike will also have a personal strobe light such as one might attach to a life vest. People can get an idea of what it looks like from shore when one is trying to signal using flares and a rescue light.
Members are encouraged to bring their flare gun and expired flares for personal use, along with eye and hearing protection. A half dozen or so safety glasses will be provided as well as some foam ear plugs. The Coast Guard personnel are also invited to share our meal, so bring a few extra helpings with you for the potluck. This is meant to be a fun and interactive evening that is designed to increase your confidence in contacting the Coast Guard or other boaters if the need were to ever arise.
Thank you Jon for arranging such a wonderful event for our members. REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR OUTDATED FLARES.
