They're grumpy 'cause they never catch anything 😁

Wow, both of your kits are long out of production. Treat them nicely.

Yup, back in the day I worked at Hobby Shack as second a job. I bought both kits there, never managed to bring home a paycheck !

woodybob and I are planning on going tomorrow, but I do not know if anyone else will be, Due to the hot weather we have been dealing with, we plan on arriving earlier than normal. between 8 and 8:30, and subsequently leaving earlier also when the heat starts bearing down.

No pic's Pete. Same old same old.

woodybob (Pat) had his Springer and I had mine. I arrived very early, 7:45 AM. Boat was in the water by 8 and I cruised out and back a few times very slowly, just enjoying the "wake art" left by the hull on the glass surface. Pat got his "Scooter" in the water and we putted around and chatted.

A little while later D-Man Dennis and Cobra Greg arrived. Greg has rigged his Cajun Commander airboat to be a recovery/rescue craft and wanted to run some test rescues. It did very well, just needs a little fine tuning.

Another guy came to chat, and it turns out he is a scale model boater and has been lurking the forum for years! His name is "Joe" and hopefully he will start coming out with his boats. Hey Joe!

Well, by 10AM it was already uncomfortably warm and plain hot with the sun beating down. So we all packed it in.

We really need a shade shelter if we are going to set up on the cement dock. Either that or set up in the picnic area under the trees like the Violator's do and carry the boats to the water. But scale boats are slow and it means standing/sitting in the sun for an hour or two anyway, lol. Not like an FE that runs 3 minutes and then comes back in.

Well a bad day boating is better than a good day at work.☺ It's hot here too and the huniditity is really rotten. By ten it's in the house if not before. maybe next time for the pics.

The monthly meeting of the Irregular's will be this coming Thursday, Sept 1, for anyone interested.

For me, I am just mentally as well as physically burned out by the unrelenting summer heat, and since it is once again going to be over 100F for the next few days, I will be bowing out for this Thursday.

For any of you that brave the heat and do go this Thursday, have a great time and try to take some pics for the forum.
