|As Josh puts it, the 3 dumbest people in Utah!|
I got about 1/3 down the marina when I saw Josh and Gords coming back. I turned around and made it back before they did but didn't want to spend any less time in the water than them. I was glad when they got near so I could get out.

After Josh's wife fed me (THANK YOU!), he and I headed to Salt Lake Community College to see a private screening with Gords of Evaporating Shorelines. It's a documentary on the Army Corps of Engineers plan to dike off 91,000 acres of the lake for mineral farming and how it's going to impact the life around the GSL. I liked most of the film and it did get me thinking. I did learn quite a bit about the type of wildlife that is a MAJOR part of the GSL and how this construction will severely negatively impact the lake and the life that goes with it. I wrote a letter to Jason Gipson of the Army Corps of Engineers to ask him to reconsider. The amount of minerals taken from the lake just isn't worth the permanent damage that will be done.

On a side note, I did think it was nice that the 3 of us from the WFPBC were there in our hoodies. I think we look cool and "unified" in representing the swimmers of GSL at the screening.
