The first-graders learned about the rules ot the game, sportsmanship and how good hotdogs and hamburgers taste at a ball game. After the game, each of the boys received a softball autographed by both teams and got to pose for a game photo. The Scouts, left to right, are Erik Alcala, Ernesto Perez, Gabriel Saldafa and Brett Johnson. Not pictured, Tony Vega. Continued from page 1 Pebbly Beach as a possible site for winter storage. Sue Perkins, a kayaker and resident asked that an area be designated for kayaks and non- motorized watercraft to dock. "When you're broke and live in Avalon, kayaking is one of the few things you can do" She also suggested a kayak rack, similar to the one at Descanso Beach, be available for use. In the period Sept, 1, 2002 to Clan. 31, 2003, the Harbor Patrol tagged 1012 skiffs on the dinghy docks to make sure the dinghies were in compliance with the 72- hour rule. While the Harbor Patrol is diligent about tagging the skiffs, it was pointed out that tags are being removed, disre- garded or placed on other skiffs. Avalon resident and boat owner Evan Ezell suggested a "nanny cams" on the dinghy docks to spot those who are removing the tags. Some of the suggestions from the survey included eliminating overnight parking on selected dinghy docks, providing a string line for local skiffs or for anyone who wanted to stay more than 72 hours, and enacting a dinghy width limit. Others suggested restricting metal and wooden dinghies to specific docks allowing certain docks for inflat- ables by color coding the docks. Also noted was banning kayaks and personal watercraft, keeping existing 72-hour limit on casino, clubs and pier east side docks, setting a minimal time limit for the west dinghy dock II II II I CATALINA COUNTRY CLUB Islander Special Available Sunday through Thursday Lunch Specials 11:30 am to 2:00 pm Soup or Salad with 1/2 Sandwich Mixed Field Greens with Balsamic Vinaigrette $7.95 Our Soups" Soup du Jour French Onion Soup Fisherman's Chowder Our Sandwiches Ham and Brie Perfect Ruben Turkey and Foccacia Dinner Specials 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm All dinners include House Salad, Fresh Vegetables, Choice of Potato or Rice, Rolls and Butter Slow Roasted Prime Rib $15.95 Shrimp Scampi $14.95 Fish du Jour $13.95 Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo $12.95 Petit filet Mignon $15.95 Veal & Crab Oscar with Asparagus & Sauce !
