|The Gracious Host|
We may have set a record for the most boats on Lake Wicwas at one time, as there was a bass tournament taking place at the same time. I was at the ramp this morning for Lake Host duty when they launched and started their day. They were a great group of people, and most were well versed in exotic plants and the Lake Host program.

Anyone who wants to enjoy this experience can call Paul Trombi and sign up to be a Lake Host!
The only down part of the whole day was paddling over to the start of the regatta, in the calm water, where we went through a couple of large blooms of cyanobacteria (probably oscillatoria, as identified by NH DES). The patches were approximately 45 feet across, with individual clumps 4 to 10 inches in size. Not uncommon on Lake Wicwas and all lakes in NH, but something to be attentive to, both to the toxic properties of cyanobacteria, and the steps everyone can take to reduce its presence in our lakes.
