SFMYC meet OCT.28 Boats on Parade

Just as a notice to people in the area....The SFMYC will be having a model boat display/free running day on Oct.28th. One of the model boat magazines will have someone there to take pictures for an upcoming article. Bring any and all boats that you want to. Anything goes. A display table would also be good as nothing to set them on at lake side.
I want to say be there by 9AM to set up. (probably a bit earlier if you want prime space) here is their site...but not updated very recently SFMYC
The promo for the event is HERE

Question about parking in the area. Last time I was up in SF and at the GG Park the parking situation was almost impossible. I am talking 20 years ago. I normally don't go anywhere near downtown SF when I am up north, but I took my sister there.

If you go to this event, where do you park? And how is it transporting your boats and tables and etc. to the pond? I have some disabilities and cannot consider a long haul from a block or two away.

on a normal day, if you get there early enough, (and it doesn't have to be at sunrise...) there is usually parking right there at the lake... you have to share with the folks who are ususally doing tai-chi there in the morning (I don't know if they are dangerous!) I can't think of the road names right now, (Fulton and 36th?) I will get a map but, you can get to the lake without having to drive through the park which is is hard to do on a Saturday... not sure what the crowd size will be for this event but I would guess at a minimum, there would be a 'loading zone' if the parking is bad

Looks like a great event. I wish I could be there. Just the drive is a bit long. Then again, I work for an airline - so I could be there easily for a couple of hours. (No intentions of checking my boats as luggage though!)

KMOT - - if you are going to make the drive, could I send the Donzi and Prime Time with you?

Matt, seeing as how you can get a free ride worldwide, I am surprised you have not already flown to China to load up on some TianJie and Arkmodel boats!!

I was thinking of going up north, but there is a BBQ at the local flying field that the Valley Flyers is putting on so 5 miles versus 450 miles? Well........

Are you planning to bring any boats Pat or just a camera? Ken says the Springers will be out in force!

Looking forward to seeing you there!
