There is ususally enough parking around the pond (on the street, parallel) and the parking is free... always best to get there a little early to ensure a close spot... we do have an informal "loading zone" though if you need it-

Hope to see you there!

I thought the park was going to drain the lake that weekend for weed abatement?

No I'm hoping to take a newer one out by then, still haven't got the reverse problem figured out on the Wilder.

I think I told you it's a "Misuri" push tug I got from a guy online. Won't take a lot of work but I need to find all my tools after my move.

I don't know Bernard... the last outing 2 weeks ago to Union City left me with (yet another) burned up ESC. It's sitting on my workbench with the wiring pulled out. I want to install a dual speed controller setup, but I have to come up with the $$ first, and all of my spare change has been going into the Newport lately.
