Hola, The Safety Stand Down Day at the Camas Center in Usk WA will be postponed. The Camas Center is open but their pool will remain closed until later in June. Once we have a better idea on different opening dates (Mudhole, Camas Center pool) we will plan for the event. We will set up a scheduled event in the website for registration so that members can start getting used to the scheduling process. Great Puddles and Stay Healthy Erwin
