Karl,

Are you driving by Milwaukee for this, with a spot on your trailer, and a spot in your truck? (I'm defintiely a good driver- slow in the driveway)

This one has been on my bucket list for many a year.

In case you did not notice (and most don't because they come straight to the Forum and bypass the Headline/Welcome Page) there is a link to NOR on that page. Just click on the logo in upper left corner or go to www.catsailor.com and you will see the NOR link.
Preregistration would be nice.
Trophies are ordered and almost ready.
Wind will be the normal 15 mph with mildly lumpy seas on the ocean side and flat seas on the back side.
Party Friday night.., Frank Moore is hopefully supplying more rum and there will plenty of beer at my house.

Buttercup????

Another one of her favorites especially after a particularly difficult gate rounding is "come on grandpa get your sh!t together" it always made me chuckle.

Sorry Todd, I'm not driving down for Steeplechase.

That string pullin' sh!t is hard. Especially if you're a candy butt accustomed to the handkerchief sized F16 sails.

since ya'll have reduced the size of the control lines to that of fishing line/dental floss, I would suspect that doesn't exactly help the hands...

Where'd I put that 16:1 traveler setup?

PS I just checked and I DO have a 3:1 traveler (I think)

The NOR says we are on our own:

VENUE

The venue will be up to you, either the Caribbean Club or Gilberts Motel just before the Jewfish Creek Bridge. At the Caribbean Club (There may be a launching fee of $50, if you can launch at all)

Has anyone checked with Gilberts to see if they are willing to have us there for Steeplechase?

We'll likely stay at Gilberts if everyone else is.
