Colorado Crew Keystone Regatta 2013

There is going to be a regatta in the ski resort of Keystone, CO. Looks like it will be a lot of fun. I am planning to be there.

Tom,

glad to hear you will be there, it will be nice to meet you in person. I plan on bringing all my subs, and a couple surface runners.

You have no idea how excited I am to meet you and other RC submariners - it is a desert out here in Las Vegas, not that we do not have great waters to run in, it is finding others who share the same interest (might have to get that interest going here).
I am working on getting my Skipjack ready for the event. The Gato and 32P Type XXIII will be there. Not sure about the little Aluminaut, might bring it for display.

I look forward to learning from you.

Seaman Jones: Correct! Seaman Beaumont, Signal Algorithmic Processing System. Give it a week and you'll be teaching at Caltech. So, like Beethoven on the computer, you have labored to produce... a biologic.
Beaumont: A what?

The biologics did not react the same to my Gato.

it was weird, at no time did they try to attack, they seemed to just be interested in what that weird fish was. even when we threw fish food in front of the Delta, to get a bunch right in front of the sub, the fish were not interested in the submarine, they were simply going after the food.

Tom and i both discovered that if you got right in front of the fish, and then gave them a blast of full throttle, they would follow you for quite a distance.
