I sail from time to time at the capitol pool at lunch. It was turned over to the Capitol this year from the Park Service. Capitol is expanding it's "Security Zone"
There was that guy they arrested that was planning to fly a RC plane into the Capitol With something on it.
When I go I take a copy of the Capitol and Grounds Visitor rules posted online somewhere.. It has nothing on the pool yet.
Most of the time a cop on a horse or motorcycle will go by they usually have nothing to say.
One day an Officer told me "you can't do that here" I handed him the visitor guide I had printed out and said "It doesn't say that here, where does it say I cant sail here"
I continued to have a nice afternoon sail.
The Lincoln Pool was pretty much always off limits, something about the "View"
There are now some plans to redevelop the "Mall" and a model boat pond was on one option, but it was pretty small, surrounded by trees and where the hell can you park anywhere near there?
