The last time this happened was in late-August.
Update 3:16 PM: Finally a readable version of the City Marina Business Plan (57 pages, 12 Mb PDF) is posted by the web-bozos at the City of Kingston. It's an incomplete posting, lacking appendices.
Update 7:00 PM: Here's the original sloppy version (164 pages, 7 Mb PDF) first posted by the City. At least this one contains the appendices. It's just ridiculous how the public gets waxed by the systematic incompetence of the City of Kingston Communications Department.
The communications bozos at the City of Kingston have posted a sloppily-scanned borderline unreadable City Marina report.
I'm trying to obtain a readable version to post.
The report is dated January 5th. The City Committee meeting is tomorrow night. This smells exactly like the folks we all know running their usual railroad.
The screwing-up of Kingston's Waterfront is apparently continuing unabated. Early public participation and input in waterfront-related processes is clearly not in the cards, and marinas is no exception. Quite the opposite, evidently.
IT'S OFFICIAL Kingston is not the sailing venue in the Toronto 2015 Pan American games bid.
AWESOME ICE BOATING CONDITIONS, according to those who know. Good skating too.
Be careful out there.
The K7 LIST OF MAJOR REGATTAS IN KINGSTON has just received a major functional upgrade.
You can now filter and search the list on any phrase you choose.
Kingston has hosted some 160 major events, defined as national championship or higher, over the past 35-years.
THE FEBRUARY 2009 THOUSAND ISLANDS LIFE is online. It appears to be a most excellent issue, with lots of Canadian content and great photographs throughout.
Articles include The MacNair Forty-Acre Muskie about the recently celebrated world-record catch-and-release by Dale MacNair. There's an article about The Canadian Empress, a very interesting article about Winter Island Living, and an article about Snowsqualls that explains how nearby Pulaski NY gets so thoroughly buried each winter.
Important News for Brockville breaks very recent news about a Brockville waterfront condo development landing a government-goodie in the form of a two-thirds funding of a new $18M Maritime Discovery Centre. (Incidentally, reading this, how does Kingston's Token Park sit with you now?)

KINGSTON'S 2009 REGATTA PICTURE is firming-up and it looks really good.
This summer sees Kingston host The Byte CII World Championship and seven North American Championships including three from Olympic classes: Hobie 16 (women, youth, and open), Finn, 470, 29er, and 49er class sailboats.
Here's how 2009 shapes-up compared to previous years in the number of prestigious championship events hosted.
