Paddling for bogeymen

Even better, for the birdiemen who will collect the big bucks from the corporate sponsors at the U.S. Open on Father's Day;
Enjoy Father's day and the first day of summer, on the water, while making a powerful statement to protect our environment and our future.
Join the People's Climate Action Fleet, Sunday- June 21, 2015 off the coast of the Chambers Bay Golf Course in Pierce County. Bring all your watercraft - kayaks, canoes, sailboats, and power boats.
Power boats are welcome?
The Chambers Bay Golf Course hosts the 2015 U.S. Open Golf Tournament June 15th-21st.   More than two hundred thousand people will attend the tournament and one hundred million more will watch the action on television.
This is our chance to bring a dramatic climate justice message to the attention of a national and international audience
Chambers Bay is a new world-class golf course immediately north of Steilacoom. The train tracks run between the golf course and Puget Sound.
100-car oil trains already use the tracks several times a day to transport oil to refineries in Tacoma, Anacortes, and Cherry Point. The streets around Chambers Bay will closed to the public during the tournament, but boats and kayaks on the Sound will be visible to all the cameras and spectators.
Most of which boats and kayaks will be made of petroleum. Even the wind-powered ones.
