As most of you know, Surfrider members Bill Lydgate and Scott Willits have been attending PG&E’s working group meetings on behalf of Humboldt Surfrider and keeping us all updated. A general meeting takes place on Feb. 2 (same night as our regular Surfrider meeting!). While we love you to come drink beer with us, we must encourage folks to turn out for the PG&E meeting as decisions are being made about where the wave energy pilot project will go.
