Tim,

I am hoping to make it out your way next year for the Regatta with my significant other. Is there anything else out that way to see or do while we are attending the regatta?

Thanks,
Ron
:D

Ron,

You could take I-80 west through Cleveland and visit the USS COD on the lakefront. From Cleveland, take I-71 south to I-70 to Indy.

Tim or John,

How do I get posters and such to distribute in the local hobby shops in the Cleveland area?

The actual address of the pond (if you are MapQuesting it) is 802-3rd Ave SW Carmel, IN 46032. The pond doesn't show up on the Mapquest map yet because it is too new.

There are tons of hotels in the area and we will have a list available soon.

I want to thank Tim for sending me the Hi-Res copy of the 05 regatta poster. :D I will print out some and give them to the local Hobby shops. You never know, there could be someone in your area that is a closet Bubblehead. :p I hope to see you all at the regatta next year. Dave.
