Southern California Fun Run, April 12th

Know of an upcoming modeling event?

Southern California Fun Run, April 12th

Postby JefftyToo » Sun Mar 23, 2014 1:29 pm

I'm posting this as a reminder for those already planning to attend, and an invite for all other locals who might wish to join us.

Impromptu Southern California SubCommittee Fun Run
Saturday, April 12, 2014
Time: 0800 hours for earliest arrivals...till who knows when

Yorba Regional Park
7600 E. La Palma
Anaheim, CA 92807
park phones for info.: (714)973-6615 or (714)973-6838

Here's a web link for map and directions:
http://ocparks.com/parks/yorba

Note: there is a $5-per-vehicle park entrance fee.

Those currently planning to participate:
Tom Chalfant (in from Las Vegas)
Mike Dory
Darrin Hataway
Steve Neill (down from Ventura County)
Will Oudmayer
Jeff Porteous
Neil Schmidt

The pond is in beautiful Yorba Park, one frequented by Will and Mike in recent months: Lake No. 3—second to the right from the main entrance, with handy parking located directly in front of it.

Our running area will be farthest to the right side of the lake, near the stream which apparently feeds it. Water seems clearest there. Water quality is fairly good: moderately clear close to shore/fine for periscope depth running farther out. As proof, I'll include some photos below from Tom Chalfant's and my quite brief but successful recon mission there yesterday afternoon (Sat., March 22).

Gentlemen, care to post here with news of which boat(s) you plan to bring?

Looking forward to seeing you all then! Perhaps this can even turn into a semi-regular gathering…

Plenty of handy, covered, closeby areas for laying out our boats...
Image

Plenty of quacking targets too...

Tom C. briefly tests his finicky Thunder Tiger: battery or ESC trouble?

Reconnoiter mission successfully completed.

Pretty setting. Reminds me of the San Gabriel, Jeff.
Warm regards,

I think this is the location of your event.

Yorba Regional Park

Easy access from the 91 freeway.
Three lakes and I believe you plan to use the north side of the middle lake.

I have a scheduled competition that Friday, Saturday and Sunday BUT, I may miss Saturday and make the drive down.

I will be bringing my Steven Neil George Washington. It should be running again by then.

Ralph will be there? Yessss. Look forward to meeting you!

I will bring:
1/72 Revell Gato
1/72 Skipjack
Bronco Type XXIII
Neptune (if it works)
1/32 32nd Parallel Type XXIII (also depending is I can find the source of the leaks)
If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

Yeah, I might be a bit too hopeful. Maybe I could buy one of those u-haul trucks (stroking my chin coming up with a plan, then reality of trying to run it past Tina crashes the idea).

Bad news for you all.
I have looked at my calendar.
I have notified those that needed to notified.
I will be at this event with at least one sub and a camera.
Hear that ! ... a camera.
That's something to be afraid of.
Why you ask?
I have lots of web pages.

Now I have to find the manual to see how to make this camera take movies.
I know it does.
Said so on the box it came in.
------------
Steve...it will be good to see ya again.

I will stick my Gopro on my large tug. May try an underwater rig to see what we get. The lake is normally more clear than the photos.
