Please send this to everyone you know to help stop this!!! Thanks!! <BR> <BR> <BR>[bawsc-all] TOWN MEETING: Discovery Bay Waterski Ban- Tomorrow 7:00pm (5/30/07) <BR>From: <a href="mailto:bawsc-all@yahoogroups.com">bawsc-all@yahoogroups.com</a> on behalf of Dave Kroske (<a href="mailto:davekro@comcast.net">davekro@comcast. net</a>) <BR> You may not know this sender.

They propose to ban skiing from Orwood (Werner cut) and all of Indian slough, all the way out to Old River! <BR> <BR>This is a lot of info, but on a very important topic. <BR> <BR>Thank you for looking into this. <BR> <BR>Dave Kroske <BR>PS. If you can, please check the above web site, then Submit public comment at link below. <BR> <BR>Indicate it is for Ordinance 2007-22 prohibiting waterskiing near Discovery Bay <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.co.contra-costa.ca.us/depart/cao/agendacomments_form.htm" target="_blank">http://www.co.contra-costa.ca.us/depart/cao/agendacomments_form.htm</a> <BR> <BR> <BR>Email directly, The Members of the Discovery Bay Town Council and the County Board of Supervisors and Express your Opinion <BR>Contact Us: mailto:<a href="mailto:info@deltawaterskiban.org">info@delta waterskiban.org</a> <BR> <BR> Not a single death in this area is due to watersports – this ordinance unfairly targets watersports enthusiasts. <BR> * <BR> <BR> Accidents in this area are largely due to excessive speed and alcohol – this ordinance wouldn’t have prevented a single death. <BR> * <BR> <BR> This ordinance essentially creates a freeway from Orwood to Old River, likely increasing speeds and accidents. It is a killer. <BR> * <BR> <BR> This ordinance paves the way for a 5MPH zone putting the watersports we all love in further jeopardy. The supporters say this isn’t true, but isn’t it the logical next step after the next death due to excessive speed and drinking. <BR> <BR> <BR> * This ordinance paves the way for more deep water development – Private Island Homes will require this to be a 5MPH zone, this is the first step. <BR> <BR>BOTTOM LINE: This isn’t about safety! If it were it would address the cause of accidents! It DOESN’T. Discovery Bay has prided itself on being the place to “Live Where You Play”. Our very way of life is under attack. Don’t believe for a second it is anything less. <BR> <BR>Even if you 100% agree that something needs to be done to improve safety, you should NOT support this ordinance. As would be done for any road, a traffic study should be done, and an effective plan to address the REAL safety problem should be identified. <BR> <BR>__._,_.___ <BR>Messages in this topic (1) Reply (via web post) | Start a new topic <BR>Messages <BR>Community email addresses: <BR> Post message: <a href="mailto:bawsc@yahoogroups.com">bawsc@yahoogro ups.com</a> <BR> Subscribe: <a href="mailto:bawsc-subscribe@yahoogroups.com">bawsc-subscribe@yahoogroups.com</a> <BR> Unsubscribe: <a href="mailto:bawsc-unsubscribe@yahoogroups.com">bawsc-unsubscribe@yahoogroups.com</a> <BR> List owner: <a href="mailto:bawsc-owner@yahoogroups.com">bawsc-owner@yahoogroups.com</a> <BR> <BR>Shortcut URL to this page: <BR> <a href="http://groups.yahoo.com/group/bawsc" target="_blank">http://groups.yahoo.com/group/bawsc</a>

How did this work out? We are in a similar battle in Oregon. You can check out the thread at <a href="http://www.pdxwake.com" target="_blank">www.pdxwake.com</a> Go to general discussion and look for the OSMB (Oregon State Marine Board) thread

its kinda gay, they only closed down 2 sloughs, its only closed march through october or something like that and friday through sonday during those months its closed... its ok though bc on the weekends its crazy as crap there anyways, youd be stupid to ride there with all the drunks going back to the docks anyways.

I was wondering what is the final verdict of this. No new signs have been put up did this go threw. The link is not working at the top to read all of the info.
