Equipment Update

Since the steward program started in May, our stock of equipment has been steadily growing. Here is a catalog of what we now have for you to use. It’s first-come, first-served unless other arrangements have been made. Fore example, if you rely on always having one of the camp chairs available, let Jane know when you schedule a shift.

Umbrella and sand screw — The umbrella lives in a plastic case (unless you find it’s starting to mold in there) and has a metal auger-style sand screw to go with it.

Three red camp chairs — They live in red bags and are handy because they are easy to stand up from. This is important because not many people will come over to you if you’re sitting down in a chair. You’ll want to get up and go over to them.

Two folding beach chairs — Harder to get up out of because they’re lower to the ground.

Blue tent — It’s daunting, but actually two people can set it up without much trouble. Pay attention to how it’s been put away to see how to do it. It provides a lot of shade, but it’s better for the lagoon where it’s less windy.

Cardboard box — This has four orange vests and two spare laminated cards, in case you’ve forgotten yours.

Wheeled cart — The wheels are a little small, and it’s not the easiest thing to lug across the sand, but it will carry your stuff, especially if you plan on taking equipment south around the lagoon to the Gulf. Hopefully we can upgrade in the future.

Scope — Currently we have no on-site scope storage, so it’s being passed around. Check with Brad or Lindsay as to its whereabouts.
