Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

Wooden Boat Festival

Every two years Hobart hosts the Australian Wooden Boat Festival, which showcases lots of wooden boats, large and small. This year our Scouts were invited to come along and build a couple of wooden canoes. These are made from plywood (and the guy running the workshop pre-cuts the pieces for the kids), and then assembled with screws, cable ties (initially), and lots of resin to make them waterproof. Here are a few photos of the first day’s construction efforts. The finished products (not shown) really did float, although they need a little more work to make them reliably seaworthy. It was a great opportunity for the Scouts, who got to do most of the work themselves.
