On October 21st, NOAA Announced an end to traditional paper charts. What does this mean for the kayaking community? Paper charts are one of the essential tools for marine navigation. NOAA has been printing paper charts for mariners for over 150 years but with the increasing use of GPS and other electronic devices, the demand for the paper charts has decreased and NOAA has decided to get out of the printing business. Instead it will rely on private vendors to sell and print the "Print on Demand" paper charts.
Oh, the weather outside is frightful, But the pool is so delightful. And since we've got no place to go, Let Us Roll! Let Us Roll! Let Us Roll!
There are several clubs and organizations that rent pool time during the winter months so thier members can work on rolling, rescues, and having fun in a warm safe enviornment.
Most of those organizations also allow non members to join in on the fun for a small fee.
