While I believe that we tend to rely on the police and the courts too much
for what are more or less social issues, if Jeff Skilling had gotten heat
rather than acceptance at his country club, Enron may not have been the
ugly mess that it was. If thaat person you recognized that threw litter
out of their car window heard from you rather than from the police, they'd
probably stop sooner. I think that our habit of using courts tends to
create weird incentives where people look at the cost as just another cost
of doing what they do. I also am accutely aware that my habit of not
requiring money in advance can backfire, and on bigger trips I will
require money pre trip, and require accounts to be settled each day(even
though this means I have to keep more detailed records to "prove" that the
money is not income, but is simply a reimbursement, during an IRS audit.
While I appreciate the helpful suggestions and the passion on the
financial issue, I'd also appreciate if we moved on to more kayaking
We still need more people to assist with training newbies on kayaking safety.
We need more paddling events posted, I have a challenge putting on more
than one or two a week, but based on sign ups the group wants a lot more
While I will cross post kayaking events to my other groups, I won't cross
post non kayaking events to the kayaking group.
This means a paddle and BBQ will still get posted, as will swim support
via kayak for a triathlon, while a party or a dance won't. For the Party
and Dance crowd, I will be limiting those posting's to the get up and get
out meetup group. Movies if they are about kayaking or about the water we
kayak in will probably still get posted.
Thanks and let's get out on the water soon.
