TENTATIVE SUBREGATTA SCHEDULE
(Since this is our first time at this location and figuring the vagaries of weather and general gremlin issues, we all need to stay flexible on times and locations.)
Friday 7:50 AM, 8:20 AM and 9:50 AM
"Live shots" at the pond with the local TV station for their "happy Talk" morning news show. Members are welcome to come (and bring your subs ready to run) to any or all of these shoots. Get the hobby on TV and attract more spectators for the SubRegatta, more spectators, more sub nuts, more sub nuts, more SubCommittee members, more members, more vendors with Sub related stuff, etc, etc...
Friday 6 PM - 9PM
Meet and Greet (pizza, sodas, deli trays, etc!) sponsored by Ships N Things and Mike's SubWorks at the Firehall (down the street from the pond.) Feel free to bring your subs for a shakedown cruise!
Saturday 8 AM - 4 PM
Doughnuts and coffee at the pond (free-will donation) All day fun run, buy stuff from vendors, talk to buddies, make new friends, shoot photos of new sub models you'd like to build, etc. Raffle drawing starts 3 PM. (note - if there are a lot of folks signed up for judging for engineering, photo contest, and navigation course we may run these on both days just to get everyone done.) The Indy Admirals will be selling 'dogs etc for lunch. There are a number of restaurants a short way from the pond as well.
Saturday 7 PM - 9 PM
SubSeminar at the Carmel City Council Chambers (about 5 blocks from the pond. Parking is available)
Seminar Features: Mike Dory - gas powered torpedoes, Dave Merriman - scratch USS Alligator RC model sub project he completed for the Discovery Science Channel. Dave will also discuss his new WTC for video cam and multi shot torpedo launcher, Tim Smalley - will be co-presenter with Merriman on the Alligator project. Skip Asay will most likely be talked into doing a quick "how-to" for us also.
Saturday 9 PM after the seminar until ?
Night run at the pond. Bring your own flashlights, chem lights to tape onto your subs, etc.
Sunday 8 AM SubRegatta re-opens
Doughnuts and coffee (please contribute). Visit vendors and buy that kit you looked at ten times yesterday, fun run and competitions continue and then judging. The Indy Admirals will be selling 'dogs etc for lunch. There are a number of restaurants a short way from the pond as well.
3 PM starts awards presentations and then raffle drawing after that. Generally everything is over by 4 but you are welcome to stay and run subs!
Remember - this schedule is flexible and tentative but will hopefully give you some idea of how things go.
Program Note: Bill Salati - famous "Voice of the SubRegatta" for years has agreed to come again and be our official announcer. If you have ever watched any of Ray Mason's SubRegatta tapes, you know Bill's voice.
