2014 Black Lake Regatta is this weekend!!!! Alcohol is fine:)

This #10 GP just showed up from Phoenix to go for a world record!!! One of 6 GP's and our local Rick Bridgeman will be the beaches roar in competition!!! 


The races are all weekend, but my neighbors across the street have offered their grass lawn for lawn chairs and blankets to watch the Sunday races for our Meetup Group with a max of 20 friends. The Pits are a block away and beer garden and bands. Bring money to get in the Pits as $10 is entrance and beer is probably $5 each. Would invite for the the weekend parties, but they are on private properties, but feel free to come to the Pits on Saturday too. 

We have 6 Grand Prix's coming plus 60 other boats to try to set world records as Black Lake is a record setting course so they come from all over. 

So if you sign up, please make it mandatory to show for the sake of others. Alcohol is totally fine!!! Swimming and wading is when boats are not running as the boats are very close to us. So Lets Have FUN!

    Bruce could you send the last picture (#20) to my phone? It is the one with Anne and I in the left foreground.

    Would really appreciate it if you could.

    Thanks!

    Thank you Bruce for a most wonderful day. I met some very interesting people and really enjoyed being part of the "boys club" at the end of the day. So kind of you guys for letting me join you. The traffic was stop and go for quite a bit of the way home even though I left a little later. I might have had to fight traffic but the day was well worth it!

    Special thanks to Roger for taking such good care of me all day ---- I didn't know anyone when I got there so I really appreciated it!

    Hi we are coming but running late. I think I remember how to get over there from last year. So you all a bit later just guess about 1:30 we should be there.

    Not sure what is going on with a Waiting List and I have 20 allowed, but it is fine for anyone since there is a low head count.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
