RE: [BSA] Re: Saturday L.P.
- Well... that makes my decision easy. I will NOT be launching from the new
beach. What a shame. It showed some great potential. And to comment on
kiters getting in the way, I wouldn't expect there will be many picnicers
and beachcombers at 7:00AM in the morning. And the kiters and windsurfers
are totally compatible.
Anyone up for working on the deer trail from turner gulch parking lot to the
bay up the way? I'll be purchasing a pump to stash there.
Good luck... looks like the kiters are on there own to make it work.

I could be wrong, but I'm not sure that input to the Parks and Recs
would have made much difference. From looking at Tom's pix, it appears
that if the area in question was left open for kite launches, it would
require an entirely empty beach. While that would be great for our
purposes, it might not be for many others (picnics, kids, parties,
The sailors are just one user of the facility, and I would bet a
minority user at that.
Not trying to get down on the kiters, but it just doesn't seem
reasonable to consume the entire beach for a launch site.
