SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 1, 2012 we published in the Federal Register this rule as a direct final rule under 33 CFR 1.05–55 expecting no adverse comment (77 FR 12456). The rule updates the special local regulations and safety zones relating to recurring marine parades, regattas, fireworks displays, and other events that take place in the Eighth Coast Guard District area of responsibility. The rule informs the public of regularly scheduled marine parades, regattas, fireworks displays, and other annual events. When these special local regulations and safety zones are enforced, marine traffic is restricted in specified areas. The purpose of the rule is to reduce administrative costs involved in producing a separate rule for each individual recurring event and to provide notice of the known recurring events requiring a special local regulation or safety zone throughout the year. The rule also helps to protect event participants and the public from the hazards associated with the listed events. We published the rule as a direct final rule under 33 CFR part 1.05–55 because we considered it noncontroversial and expected no adverse comment regarding the rulemaking. We notified the public that the rule would be effective May 30, 2012 unless adverse comment or notice of intent to submit an adverse comment was received on or before April 2, 2012. No adverse comment or notice of intent to submit an adverse comment was received; therefore, this rule is effective May 30, 2012. Although we received no adverse comments, the Coast Guard was informed of two required corrections. These corrections are made through technical amendment. The first is an event name change and the second is a change in how often a specific event occurs from annually to biannually. During the comment period, the Coast Guard posted supplemental information PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 to the docket, accessible as guided in the ADDRESSES section, explaining the necessary corrections. No comment or notice of intent to comment on these corrections was received. The corrections are as follows: (1) For entry no. 5 in Table 1 of 100.801, the ‘‘Spirit of Morgantown Triathlon’’ is now named the ‘‘Mountaineer Triathlon.’’ Therefore, the Event/Sponsor column for entry no. 5 in Table 1 of 100.801 requires correction to read ‘‘Mountaineer Triathlon/Greater Morgantown Convention and Visitors Bureau’’ in the final rule. The triathlon event’s date, location, and the resulting special local regulation remain the same. The next occurrence for this event is the second Sunday in August, 2012. (2) For entry no. 151 in Table 1 of 165.801, the air show requiring the safety zone takes place biannually, during odd numbered years only, not every year. Therefore, the ‘‘Date’’ column for entry no. 151 in Table 1 of 165.801, requires correction to read ‘‘Biannually occurring during odd numbered years; 2 Days; Mid March to end of April’’ in the final rule. This date description properly indicates the resulting safety zone’s occurrence every other year rather than every year. The time of year, location, and the resulting safety zone requirements remain the same. The next occurrence for this air show and resulting safety zone will be 2 days during mid-March to the end of April, 2013. Accordingly, 33 CFR parts 100 and 165, as amended March 1, 2012, at 77 FR 12456, and effective May 30, 2012, are corrected through the following technical amendments: PART 100—REGATTAS AND MARINE PARADES 1.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 1, 2012 we published in the Federal 
Register this rule as a direct final rule under 33 CFR 1.05-55 
expecting no adverse comment (77 FR 12456). The rule updates the 
special local regulations and safety zones relating to recurring marine 
parades, regattas, fireworks displays, and other events that take place 
in the Eighth Coast Guard District area of responsibility. The rule 
informs the public of regularly scheduled marine parades, regattas, 
fireworks displays, and other annual events. When these special local 
regulations and safety zones are enforced, marine traffic is restricted 
in specified areas. The purpose of the rule is to reduce administrative 
costs involved in producing a separate rule for each individual 
recurring event and to provide notice of the known recurring events 
requiring a special local regulation or safety zone throughout the 
year. The rule also helps to protect event participants and the public 
from the hazards associated with the listed events.
    We published the rule as a direct final rule under 33 CFR part 
1.05-55 because we considered it noncontroversial and expected no 
adverse comment regarding the rulemaking. We notified the public that 
the rule would be effective May 30, 2012 unless adverse comment or 
notice of intent to submit an adverse comment was received on or before 
April 2, 2012. No adverse comment or notice of intent to submit an 
adverse comment was received; therefore, this rule is effective May 30, 
2012.
    Although we received no adverse comments, the Coast Guard was 
informed of two required corrections. These corrections are made 
through technical amendment. The first is an event name change and the 
second is a change in how often a specific event occurs from annually 
to biannually. During the comment period, the Coast Guard posted 
supplemental information to the docket, accessible as guided in the 
ADDRESSES section, explaining the necessary corrections. No comment or 
notice of intent to comment on these corrections was received. The 
corrections are as follows:
    (1) For entry no. 5 in Table 1 of 100.801, the ``Spirit of 
Morgantown Triathlon'' is now named the ``Mountaineer Triathlon.'' 
Therefore, the Event/Sponsor column for entry no. 5 in Table 1 of 
100.801 requires correction to read ``Mountaineer Triathlon/Greater 
Morgantown Convention and Visitors Bureau'' in the final rule. The 
triathlon event's date, location, and the resulting special local 
regulation remain the same. The next occurrence for this event is the 
second Sunday in August, 2012.
    (2) For entry no. 151 in Table 1 of 165.801, the air show requiring 
the safety zone takes place biannually, during odd numbered years only, 
not every year. Therefore, the ``Date'' column for entry no. 151 in 
Table 1 of 165.801, requires correction to read ``Biannually occurring 
during odd numbered years; 2 Days; Mid March to end of April'' in the 
final rule. This date description properly indicates the resulting 
safety zone's occurrence every other year rather than every year. The 
time of year, location, and the resulting safety zone requirements 
remain the same. The next occurrence for this air show and resulting 
safety zone will be 2 days during mid-March to the end of April, 2013.
    Accordingly, 33 CFR parts 100 and 165, as amended March 1, 2012, at 
77 FR 12456, and effective May 30, 2012, are corrected through the 
following technical amendments:
