I knew right when I posted about no water in Vegas that someone would say something about Lake Mead 30 or so miles away from Vegas.

I have been there and the Hoover Dam is an awesome engineering achievement, especially considering when it was built.

Pretty cool to be able to walk across the dam and see a clock at each end with each being an hour different in time due to the time zone line being right where the dam is.

The spillways for overflow if they ever get any again are large enough to float a WWII battleship. It says it right there on the sign.

That's 'zactly what you can have here

If you want another Steam-Up next year in 2011, jump up an' down, stamp yer feet, holler and yell, raise a ruckus and generally let folks at the Club know that you'd like to see it happen again! (Becoming a member couldn't hurt...) But mostly let folks know you want to come play next year then show up!

There was plenty of room on Spreckels Lake this year for more boats and more participants. This is how you "grow" events!

Great boats and folks
Portland won't dry up and blow away if you come down and play by The Lake for a weekend or so... really Maybe you can make it in 2011.

Everyone I moved the Fishing Boat Funrun to Oct. 10th Sunday to make room for the SwapMeet on Sat. 9th. so if we need a bit of time to get our goodies and cash together for that this is your wakeup call.

Sounds good Lee. Has the San Fran club ever had a swap meet before? Do they usually get a good turn out?

This is the second one and figure it will be a fair attendance. There were several transactions completed last year, I scored a Stanley Hurdee-Gurdee drill for my collection and a non-member friend got a bandsaw and a 2.4ghz trans. for a decent price.

Sign your life away! Join up (a mere $30 ) and come play. The bigger and more active the Power Squadron, the more power events!

Here's an application form (Adobe PDF format) (Easier than joining the Mobile Infantry! )
