A HUGE thank you to the Eight Balls for stepping up to the plate - I know this will be the best SubRegatta yet.

I made my reservations on the Hilton website and it worked perfectly. Nancy and I are coming in on Thursday evening and staying until Monday morning checkout. (BTW - Nancy loves to shop so if any other wives / GFs are coming, I'm sure she'd be happy to join in on an expedition to the nearest Mall on one of the days!)

BTW - August 4th is my birthday, if anyone would like to buy me a nice new sub kit for a present! :lol:

See you in August!!!!!

If I can make it, and fly in, how do most people transport their subs? Do you ship them in or trust baggage handlers (images of gorillas come to mind - apologies to any members that may be baggage handlers)?
Thank you.
If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

I think Rick Galinson carries his "visible sub" in one of those fiberglass golf bag carriers with wheels when flying.

I believe some folks have also had luck adapting rifle/gun travel cases. Hardshell plastic outside and sliceable/customizable foam inside.

Along these lines, Ive seen a bow (as in bow and arrow) case used to good effect.

My 1/96 Blueback travels in an arrow case. Room enough in there for the boat and transmitter, stand, and a couple extra batteries. Fits in the overhead just fine.

I've also used in the past a length of PVC pipe, both split to make an opening case, and left round with end caps.

Other than the funny looks you get, no problems. A few suggestions:

1. If you have a gas boat, remove the valve core from the ballast filler. Do NOT carry Propel thru security at the airport.

2. Let the folks at the scanner know you have an R/C model in the case before they run it thru the x-ray. This cuts down on the "excitement" factor.

3. Carry an old issue of the SCR, just in case they get really curious about you being legit.

I'm not sure about moose milk, but the Canadian Mafia will definitely be there.

Registration fee will be $10 as last year, T-shirt prices the same, and Saturday evening session will be in the tent prior to the night run, and I am still looking for someone to give a seminar talk then. A Paypal registration site is in the works, and I will update the info thread shortly, which will include a registration mail-in address for those without Paypal. There will definitely be raffles held on Saturday and Sunday.
