Mr. Veep,

So sorry to hear it -- what a bummer! Will you be recouped enough to still join us in Georgetown three weeks later?


P.S. You'd better be, Comrade! What would we Yankee Imperialist dogs do without your expert Cold War photographic surveillance techniques?

I will make it to the Subron 5.
Would not miss it for the world. I would have made the national with a window of a few days. Just unfortunate luck!

Woo Hoo! The SubRegatta is only a couple weeks away!

Hope you are getting your subs all ready to go! Be sure to bring every boat in your fleet - working or not. Visitors like to see lots of subs - working, undergoing refit or under construction! They DO NOT HAVE TO BE PERFECT!

Just send your name, hometown and subron affiiation (if any) to - that will enable John Schagane to have your name badge ready when you walk up to the registration table on Saturday morning. The badge will be your ID for checking transmitters in and out of the impound. It will also enable other guys you have probably already talked to on the message boards to recognize who you are! Even if you aren't bringing a sub, please register as well.

Don't forget the 7 PM Friday Night Meet and Greet at the Hilton garden Inn (official hotel). Metal artisan (and SC member) Steve Jensen is sponsoring the goodies on Friday night. Pizza (lots of it), sodas, treats, sub movies and getting reaquainted with old sub friends and meeting new ones!

We have a great slate of speakers this year for the Satuday Night SubSeminar in the Hilton Garden Inn (our official hotel). Dr. Art Broder talks about his RCABS ballast systems, Pete Piekarki (Pirate on this board) will talk about scratch building sub hulls, Jeff laRue will tell us how he does his stainless steel sub decks, and Dave Merriman is discussing painting and weathering. Dont miss this event!!!

Along with our usual competitions (navigation, engineering, etc.) we are having the photo contest again this year. Color or B&W, any size - 4 x 6 or larger. No frames, but matting is ok if you wish. Anything submarine related, model or prototype is in the running.

Along with all our regular competitions, the Great Sub Race is a go - for sure - this year, honchoed by Dave Welch. There will be three size classes - so there are three chances to win.

R/C Engineering & Craftsmanship - 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place
R/C Navigation: Open Class - 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place
R/C Navigation - Bottom Gun class - 1st place only
Photography - 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place
Static Modeling - built from kit - 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place
Static Modeling - scratchbuilt - 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place

SWAP TABLE - "One man's junk is another man's treasure"
If you have kits, completed subs, rc gear, or other hobby related stuff you want to sell, bring it along. I think last year, just about every item on the table was sold by Sunday afternoon. You put your item on the table with a price and your name - It is your responsibility to keep an eye on it, handle the finances etc...

Our base hotel room block is full up, but there are plenty of other places in the Carmel Indiana area.

Any questions?
Shoot me an email at

See you in a couple of weeks!!!
