Happenings on August 11

Two noteworthy events are occurring today, August 11, in North County San Diego in Carlsbad.

First, the much anticipated opening of The Crossings at Carlsbad public golf course occurs. The original opening on August 4 was pushed back due to a small plane crash from Palomar Airport, which damaged the greens and the fairway near hole 3. Residents quickly signed up and filled the available spots for the "Carlsbad Residents Days" on August 5 and 10. The official Grand Opening ceremonies are delayed for a few weeks in order for the grass to grow in. This 18-hole $68 million golf course has been much anticipated, although not without controversy given the time it took to build, the budget, and other issues.

Second, art fanciers (such as myself) will appreciate the opening of the new show at the well-known Cannon Art Gallery (adjacent to the public library in South Carlsbad). "Natural Connections" features artists Joanne Hayakawa (ceramic sculptures) and Gail Roberts (paintings). Both are Professors at San Diego State University. The reception is from 5 - 7 pm. There will be Family Open Studios at the gallery courtyard with opportunities for children and adults to make their own creations on Saturday September 15 from 11 - 2 PM. FREE to the public.
