Water ]Festival to Feature "S00fety on the Blue" Safety on the Blue isa one-day water safety program that will be held on the last day of the West Virginia Water Festival on August 5th in the "Pits" area of Bluestone Lake in Hinton, West Virginia. The event is designed to highlight the importance of water and boating safety for people of all ages. Safety on the Blue began in 2004 as a low-key safety outreach event coordinated by a small group of volunteers and has grown into an award-winning program supported by the US Army Corp of Engineers, the Coast Guard, the National Park Service, West Virginia State Parks, and WVU Extension Service. The event uses an entertaining, innovative approach to educate both youth and adults about water safety. Utilizing young volunteers from the audience, the program focuses on how to properly fit a life jacket and the importance of wearing one at all times when on or around water. But, the true highlight of the event is the distribution of a new, properly fitting personal flotation device (PFD or life jacket) to the first 100 children and youth that preregisters and attends the educational program. Several of the coordinating agencies will also provide various types of water safety information and there will also be casting tournament for young children. A new feature this year will be a water safety talk by Phil Knuckles, President of Vandalia Water Sports. Phil and his team will focus attention on demonstrating water sport equipment safety with a special emphasis on hand signals. Vandalia Water Sports is an affiliated club of the USA Waterski Organization. There .will also be good food and soft drinks available for purchase with the proceeds going to support the event. Bluestone Lake extends more than 10 miles up the New River and is the third largest impoundment in the state. With a 2,040-acre surface area, Bluestone Lake provides vast recreational opportunities for more than 1.3 million visitors annually. Recreational boating continues to increase each year on the lake and personal mOtoriZed war' "-":" "'  ' craft such as SeaDoos'and Jet Skis are becoming much more popular and prevalent. These craft pose safety risks to their inexperienced operators, boaters, and swimmers.
