Tonawonda Winter Fest Run January 16, 2011

Postby donO » Sun Jan 16, 2011 10:31 pm

The Rochester Gang was invited to attend this fun event at the Tonawanda Pool. Although we only brought a few boats, the subs were a definite hit with the Buffalo boat club. Many questions were asked and we all had a great time looking at all of their boats as well. The pool was huge and we got to run for about 2 hours along with sailboats and some really nice scale boats (aka targets). It was decided to not run subs and targets together as we didn't want any mishaps and many of us had the same frequencies anyway. Thanks to Don3 and the Buffalo boat club for the invitation and for inviting us back next year. I know all the 8 balls had a great time and look forward to coming back to this event next year.

Here's a picture, more pictures and video to follow in the next couple of days.

That was a fun event even though I didn't bring a boat. There were some very nice models on both display and on the water.Next year I'll have my sub running . Greg

Here's the video. Only Patti's boat and some sailboats in the water when I was running. Great pool, very clean. Watch the surprise ending.

I am still working on the video for the FS-1 Donnie took for me.
She was running much better than I was able to run her. :roll: :lol: BD.
