St. Louis Admirals Regatta

Cold Duck, I'm glad to see you are keeping the newsletter editor straight. The CMBC has sent a couple of guys to MO every September for several years. I would hate to see them arriving a week late. Am remarking my calendar to show St. Louis as the 8th and 9th of September. You have any plans to go??

Yes, I hope to be able to attend this one. I've never been there, but have heard and read good things about it. The pictures that I've seen in various locations indicate that the competition is strong.

Reason For Change

Not an editorial error in the newsletter, but a change of plans.

The following quote is from greenboat on the SLA regatta thread that I started in the scale boats forum. It explains that the reason for the date change was the Governor pulling rank on the Admirals What was he thinking!?!

"The dates were switched at the request of the state govenor. There is going to be some kind of bicycle event and he is going to be there. You would think that with all the press there that us model boaters could get some much deserved media coverage, BUT NO, the govenor wants it ALL for himself.

Traditionally we have the Regatta on the second weekend in September but someone had overlooked the schedule and originally planned it on the third weekend. So now we are back to where we should be."
