Nice photos Craig.

Re: the situation.....

They pulled the same crap at Pt. Mugu Naval Air Station several years ago. Used to be we could bring our lawn chairs and set them right on the tarmac at airshow center and enjoy the show. Then one year we arrive to find a couple hundred yards of bleachers have been installed and fenced off and they were charging admission to get into the area. If you did not pay, you were relegated to the off sides where you got to look at outbuildings and other stuff in front of you.

The reasons for the military shows are to #1 recruit new young people into the armed services and #2 to show the taxpayers what we have payed for and to thank us. Privatizing and charging the taxpayers money for what we have already payed for is so much BS I cannot express it decently.

Now, if ALL the money collected were to go to something like Military Family Assistance Fund I would be okay with it. But to richen the coffers of private enterprise on the backs of my taxes, nooo that really tee's me off.

Annual fishing boat fun run regatta - 2010

The annual "Fishing Boat Fun Run" Regatta for 2010.

October 10, 2010, Spreckels Lake, Golden Gate Park!!!

The weather early in the day through mid-day was pretty icchy; fog and socked in overcast. As I said lousy weather, but it gives great light for shooting models since it is a near flat illumination with hardly perceptible shadow and a high light level; I couldn't have asked for better shooting weather for digital! Like having a natural light tent! (Not to mention good for very moody shots as well as you can see from the murkiness of the day in the backgrounds of a number of Vspeed's shots. You know, that haunted scottish moors, Hound of the Baskervilles (cue the howling), Jack the Ripper stalking Whitechapel kind of weather... in other words, a typical San Francisco summer day )

In a way it was perfect weather for a fishing boat regatta as fishing boats go out to earn their keep in the foggy, misty dawn and lousy weather to find their catches. Wonderful weather actually - for fishing boats.

Free Run Time: The 'Irregualrs' take to The Lake with their go-fasties!

With the end of the official regatta in the afternoon, the Irregulars (folks who are regulars at Spreckles Lake, but who choose not to join the San Francisco Model Yacht Club) get their go-fasties fired up and start running some laps!

The sun started to come out from behind the cloud cover after about 13:30 and by 14:00 or so, there was full sunshine and the day started to really warm up.

In other words... more photos to come LOL
