Today Skip talked to Billy S (Our PINS expert) and because of the wind, and the wind direction, Billy has advised against a trip down the beach this weekend.
No One is more disappointed in this turn of events than I.
Skip D. talked to our famous Billy S. today and the trip.
With the winds and direction they are coming from, for safety, and comfort’s sake, the trip to PINS is cancelled for this year.
