Just another day at the CGA. Well, I would say that, had we not all just come back from spring break. The Coast Guard Idlers and Fairwinds traveled down to Florida for our weeklong break. We performed in Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Pompano Beach, Key Biscayne, Naples, Sarasota, and at Disney World! The performances all went great, and the only con out of the whole trip was that I got really badly sunburned on Wednesday. I still haven’t gotten over it, and now it’s Monday of the next week! But aside from that, the trip was a blast, with beach trips to Chipotle runs and everything in between.
Lacrosse is going exceptionally well at the moment. We are ranked Number 8 in the nation, and are 3-0 heading into our conference play. We have a huge game against the University of Rhode Island on Wednesday that could really set us up for a bid at the national tournament. We’re all excited to get to that game to prove we deserve to go to Greenville in May! The team looks really fluid, and is doing the best in its history, which makes it really exciting to be a part of this team.
As for our summers, well, it’s tough to say what is going on. I got my cadre choice, Waterfront 1, so I’m pumped for that. However, due to the sequester with our great pals in D.C. a lot of our summer is looking like it might get cut, resulting in unpaid leave. While leave is great, at the expense of CATP and CSTP, two great 2/c summer programs, it appears to be much more of a downer than you’d imagine. We’re all hoping that these problems get fixed quickly down in Washington!
Well, that’s about it for now. With no more real breaks aside from Easter Weekend, the push is on to finish the semester! Any questions, as always, I’m right here. Hope you’re getting ready 2017!
