Meet at 10 am.  

Meet at the front of the Tacoma Dome Station parking garage, 424 E. 25th St.  Park in the garage and walk out to 24th street.  This is the street the trolley runs down, between the garage and Freight House Square buildings.  I'll park as close to the trolley stop as possible.  Look for a grey Ford Escape with roof racks.  I'll be standing outside the vehicle.

Due to very restricted parking along Dock Street (where my boat is moored) we will have to ride down to the boat in my car as I have the required parking permit.

My cell is 253.820.7655.  Call or text if you need to cancel, are running late or can't find me outside the garage.

On-the-water practice for skills learned in the classroom sessions.
