Is anyone paddling tonight? I can be there for 5:45pm. Nancy, Just so you know, a few of the regulars are going to Hanson tonight instead of Hingham. It's posted in the "Skills and Training" forum. (I won't be going to either place myself tonight.) But, maybe you'll get some response from...

I'm dying to see if they ever did any more to finish up the light-house keepers house. Our tax dollars at work.

Canceling for Hingham tonight. 50% chance of thunderstorms as well as 16mph winds. Too much chance of bad weather for Briggsy to make the trip up here this week, so I'll join the crowd over in Hanson and work on my off-side roll tonight.
