Sorry for the lack of club news and updates this year. As you are all aware it has been a tough year on Utah Lake with the low water and algal blooms. It is the UWSC boards opinion that the algal blooms are generally not any worse than in past years but there is just more publicity and water quality testing which is good because there is a problem. In low water years like this year algal blooms are more common but things are not as bad as the news makes it out to be. There have been members out skiing the courses this year and many times they have had the lake almost to themselves, no reports of any big algal blooms in the courses. For the current Utah Lake algal conditions go to https://deq.utah.gov/water-quality/utah-lake-jordan-river-canals-algal-bloom-monitoring-2018 and check out https://wqdatalive.com/pu
blic/669 for live Utah Lake water quality data including water temperature.
Saturday the 15th is the clubs Adopt-A-Park service project day, will be picking up garbage around the marina. This will be a very casual event with no club person in charge, come at 10am if possible but anytime during the day that is convenient is fine. Pick up a garbage bag at the entry booth then work for as long as you want and report your hours to the person at the booth on your way out. If you do attend please send a email to firstname.lastname@example.org and the club will Venmo you $20 for you time.
Happy Skiing to those that are able to make it out. If your looking for people or places to ski with post on https://www.facebook.com/groups/utahwaterski and often those members that are owners one some of the private lakes will get you out skiing.
