IJSBA is sad to report that the Lake Elsinore race scheduled for this weekend has been scheduled for this weekend due to an algae bloom.  According to local health authorities, the algae is at a level unsafe for staff and participants.  At least that is according to this article:  Stay out of the water: Officials warn about algae blooms in Lake Elsinore, Big Bear Lake (msn.com).  The Wikipedia website states that there is not even a generally accepted definition of what algae is.  Well, whatever algae really is, we forever dislike it for blooming at this very inconvenient time for PWC Racers.
