Looks like we have about an hour before the weather gets here.
If you didn’t have a chance to get to Sunset last night you missed your first opportunity to get a sign. Don’t panic. While odds are it will be a rainout tonight we’ll work something out.
Anyone want odds on the big sign on the boat has a sign permit?
See you at the meeting tonight!!
