This Thursday - Sunday, January 24-27, is the Strictly Sail show at Navy Pier http://www.strictlysailchicago.com/ The cost of entry is very reasonable and includes many free seminars ranging from Boat Handling to the history of sailing ships during the War of 1812. The UASC is not exhibiting at this show, but if you go, pay attention to the exhibitors in regards to what seems to work well and what doesn't. Please take photos and let the UASC officers know your opinions about this so it can be taken into consideration for future UASC displays.
If you are a diver and need to get any of your gear serviced, now is the time to get it done.
If you are a researcher, let me know if you want to join me at the National Archives, History Museum, Newberry Library, Harold Washington library or any other research facility that you are interested in.
Don't forget to tell your friends and anyone who may be interested, that the UASC has a new meeting location for this January's meeting, as well as our Guest Speaker, Dr. Anna Roosevelt who will be discussing her underwater work discovering new Paleo Indian sites. More info on both of these is available on the UASC website.
See you at the January 30 UASC meeting,
