    So we did run with Empire State Model Mariners in Queens yesterday for the first run of my USS SHARK SSN-591 with her 2020 refit upgrades. Alas the emergency surface gas solenoid is not functioning. So on the hard she sat. The PBR got wet at least.

    Ray Mason's 1:72 ALFA got underway on Electrochemical power. Discover the old Propel Valve o-ring doesn't quite work with the new Badger cans. Lost half a can and frosted his fingers quite badly.

    We also discovered with that with less than a 1000 YouTube Subscribers, we can't live stream. Oh well.

    Still had fun, a bad day at the pond still beats a good day at work.

    Important Parks Department Service Changes Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

    Updated: Friday, June 26 at 1:30 p.m.

    The World Health Organization has declared the COVID-19 disease, known as the coronavirus, a pandemic. During this time, we ask that all park goers use additional precautions to protect their health and safety and that of those around them.

    At this time, City parks are open. We ask that all park goers take extra precautions to stay healthy and safe. While solo exercise is okay, team sports (such as basketball, football, softball, and soccer) are not permitted in our parks at this time. Please maintain at least 6 feet of distance between yourself and others when outside and avoid congregating in groups, use acceptable face covering when individuals are less than six feet apart from one another, are adhered to by all parties.

    Our park restrooms are open. We are cleaning our restrooms daily with appropriate cleaning products to ensure that they are being fully disinfected.
