WHAT'S HAPPENING

May 20-26 is National Safe Boating Week

PIERRE, S.D. – Join the United States Coast Guard and the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) in celebrating National Safe Boating Week May 20-26, 2017.

“This year’s theme is ‘Wear it!’ We want to help educate all South Dakotans about safe boating practices and the different styles and proper fits of various life jackets,” said Joe Keeton, GFP boating law administrator.

Wear Your Life Jacket to Work Day is Friday, May 19. Post photos to the Ready, Set, Wear It! Facebook page or submit them to outreach@safeboatingcouncil.org.

Use the hashtags #RSWI2017 and #safeboating throughout the week.

Keep in mind these basic boating tips:

1. Wearing life jackets saves lives – wear yours.
2. Boating education saves lives – take a class.
3. Safe boats save lives – get a vessel safety check.
4. Sober boating saves lives – don’t drink or use drugs and boat.

May is National Electrical Safety Month

Fergus Falls, MN – 

Every digging project—whether rural or urban, large or small—requires a call to the national 811 One Call center at least 48 hours before you start. This means calling no later than Wednesday for a weekend project. When you dial 811, you’ll be connected to your state’s One Call center, which will notify the appropriate utility companies. Be prepared to give the location and start time of your dig activities. Each affected utility company will send a professional locator to mark the approximate locations of underground lines with flags and/or paint.
 
Utility line depths can vary for a number of reasons, such as erosion, previous digging projects, and uneven surfaces. “Digging only a few inches creates the risk of striking an underground utility line, which can cause injury and may require repair costs and fines,” said Otter Tail Power Company’s Safety Services Manager Greg Overland. “Unsafe digging can compromise community safety and disconnect people from critical services.”
 
Your 811 call and the locating services are free. Don’t risk damaging your underground utility lines and causing needless electricity, cable TV, telephone, high-speed Internet, and water and sewer outages. “Always call 811 before you begin outdoor projects such as planting trees or shrubs, establishing a new garden, digging footings for your new garage, burying a water line, erecting a fence, or building a new deck or patio. It’s fast, it’s easy, and it’s the law,” said Overland.
 
Each state has its own rules and regulations. Contact your state’s One Call center for more information:
Minnesota: 800-252-1166 or gopherstateonecall.org
North Dakota: 800-795-0555 or ndonecall.com
South Dakota: 800-781-7474 or sdonecall.com

Sand guys are coming to Watertown

The Travel Channel’s ‘Sand Guys’ to Visit Watertown

Lake Kampeska will be the backdrop for an internationally recognized sand sculpting crew during this summer’s Cookin’ on Kampeska, set for July 14-15.

Sand Guys International, who star on the Travel Channel show, “Sand Masters,” will be featured throughout this summer’s two-day event at Stokes-Thomas City Park.

“The possibilities for our Cookin’ on Kampeska sculptures are endless, but so far we’ve been talking with them about creating something unique to Watertown,” said Megan Olson, President of the Watertown Area Chamber of Commerce which organizes the annual event.

“We’re also excited that they are going to work in some time on Saturday to teach kids a few of their techniques,” she added.

Sand Guys International was formed when two world-renowned sand sculptors, Rusty Croft and Kirk Rademaker, decided to combine their talents. The pair have traveled the globe and have more than thirty-five years of experience sculpting sand on a professional level.

In 2011, the Sand Guys were offered their own television show "Sand Masters," by the Travel Channel. The show chronicled their adventures in sand for two years filming a total of 29 episodes.  Since its premier, "Sand Masters" has been translated into Spanish, French and Italian airing throughout the Asian-Pacific rim and Europe.

The Watertown appearance of Sand Guys International, sponsored by GCC/Consolidated Ready Mix, Inc., will be on Saturday, July 15, in Stokes-Thomas City Park near Lake Kampeska. The exact times have yet to be determined.

Designed to be a family-friendly weekend, Cookin’ on Kampeska centers around the 6th Annual Kansas City Barbeque Society sanctioned BBQ contest. In addition to sampling fantastic food, attendees will also enjoy a wide variety of games and live music.

“We just feel bringing a group of this caliber to Watertown will give families even more to look forward to. They will also draw people in from around the region,” said Olson.

More information on Sand Guys International and Cookin’ on Kampeska will be released as the dates draw near. For the latest updates, go to www.cookinonkampeksa.com.
