Middle Pond Cleaning - Will be Waterless for 3 Weeks

The GGACC Middle Pond will be drained on Friday February 28th - for cleaning and repairs - and will not be re-filled until Monday March 17th..

I do not have absolute confirmation of this fact yet, but this appears to be a "solid rumor". Assume it is true. Please plan your travel schedules accordingly and/or plan to do your practice casting in the deep pond (unless someone tells me that's going to be drained too!!)

Flights booked and got 7 days sponsored paid leave from our BOM, casting ponds here I come  in April.
Question, is the Sealrock Inn the nearest place to the ponds? as I did have to walk a few times to the ponds last year and them hills are a bit steep .
See ye all on the 4th of April.

* * * pond cleaning update * * *

The Word from The Head Water Warrior, Bob Pauli:

"The ponds will begin draining Friday evening, Feb 28. Water Warrior V pond cleaning takes place March 3, followed by repairs. Refilling will take place beginning March 14. I believe the ponds should be available by March 17.

[However,] I would not recommend making an airline reservation that is non-refundable based on these dates."

Postponement of draining... ponds will remain opened

Golden Gate Casting Pond at Golden Gate Park, San Francisco will cancel the draining of its pond due to servere water shortage problem. To refill the pond would require over 800,000 gallons of water ... which inevitably will shed some poor publicity and become a catastrophe political and environmental nightmare if the people of San Francisco realized what happened. For those that wish to come and practice... bring it on!

Is this fact, rumor, or speculation?

It makes sense, but can someone confirm this?

SOR 2014 Member Training Day: April 9, 2014

I am unable to log in as Bob Pauli, and pleas to administrators have gone unanswered so I logged in as Robert Pauli.

Wednesday before SOR is member training day so GGACC members have the opportunity to cast with the "SOR Pros." We have 15 members signed up for this event and need volunteers from our cast of contestants.

Last year our volunteers included Anita Strand, Travis Johnson, Knut Ekelund, Lee Davison, Gene Oswald, Tommy Aarkvisla, Bruce Kruk, Tyler Kushner, Tim Arsenault, all of whom did a terrific job and whose effort and time were appreciated by GGACC members.

Who will volunteer for SOR 2014?

Many thanks,
Bob Pauli

Members day

My flight gets in early Wednesday morning and I am straight to the ponds. Would be happy to help out just like last year. I had a good time with that last year.
