The hours area posted in the actual ordience as 9am to 7pm.
Looking closely I think that they may be aplying the mayor can close down the beach by proclimation clause. Durring the rescue in the chanel last week I belive he litteraly did this. As in used his voice to direct boaters away from the rescue divers area of operation. Hands on. I like that.
I don't want to make a stink as the city is likely to just ban all kiteboarding rather then acomidate us. I was thinking of going throught the friends of waukegan beach organization. Ask them if they would like help. I think they organize cleanup days if memory serves.
PS. Be carefull and watch out for swimmers in distress when out. This friday we had another fatality in lake county. 20 something male again. Sliped under off of the beach in zion. They had around 5 fire department dive teams, the coast guard and a coast guard air unit out. Bumped into one of them on the way to the beach and ended up leading them over to the boat launch. It's hard to find if you don't know the area. The pinged the swimmer with sonar and pulled him out around 7:30 after 50 min under water. Unable to resesitate. Cold water gives you a lot of extra time with out breathing before iriversable oxygen starvation to the brain so they did try and revive him. The water is cold. Swimmers without wet suits can cramp up or lose strength quickly. This is likely what hapened to this young man and the one that died swimming the shiping chanel in Wakegan. If we present ourselfs as equiped to help we are part of the solution not a problem. Oh and stay warm. Air is warm and the water is warmer but still cold enough to be a problem with prolonged exposure.
