Local CSPS Course offered

Make sure you are ready for legal boating in Virginia. Local CSPS Course offered June 20 and 22 to meet new, July 1 training requirement

In 2007, the Virginia General Assembly enacted a law to establish a boating safety education compliance requirement (reference http://www.dgif.virginia.gov/boating/).

Beginning July 1, 2016, all PWC (personal watercraft) operators age 14 years and older and all motorboat operators, regardless of age, need to take a boating safety course. By 2016, all operators of PWCs (personal watercraft such as jet skis, Sea Doos, Wave Runners, etc.) and operators of motorboats with a 10 hp or greater motor, will be required to have a boating safety education course completion card on board when operating a PWC or motorboat.

To this end, the local Colonial Sail and Power Squadron (CSPS) offers free classes to the public at prescribed intervals. As a matter of convenience to peninsula boaters, and especially those of the Jefferson Lab community, CSPS is offering a two-evening class at the Denbigh Community Center, on June 20 and 22 from 6-9 p.m.

Folks can register for the course at: https://www.register-ed.com/events/view/83238

For those unable to attend this session, future classes are anticipated by CSPS and other organizations, as well as online, for a nominal fee (~$30). Don't ruin a summer sail with a citation! Get this safety training now and be ready to enjoy the water this summer!

Catch the Free Yoga Classes on Wednesdays in CEBAF Center

As a JAG activity, Joe Beaufait, Physics Division, is offering free, all-level yoga classes on Wednesdays in CEBAF Center. The classes run from 5:30-6:30 p.m. and take place in one of three areas of CC: the auditorium, or conference room F113 or F224/225.

Joe is a 200-hour certified yoga instructor. He describes this all-level class as friendly to the beginner, but offers plenty of challenges for those who want to push themselves. Yoga is a great way to lower blood pressure, lose weight, gain flexibility and reduce stress, he adds.

If you are interested, just bring a yoga mat, and wear easy-to-move-in clothing to the class.

If you’d like notification, let Jodi Patient, CEBAF Center receptionist, know and she’ll post the classes to your zimbra calendar.
