SubRon 8 Funrun - Its only a few days away.

The Greater Rochester, NY area, otherwise known as "the Rochester Gang".

Well 8-balls, its only a little bit longer! In preparation for the great event, I've been tuning up the Akula and honing her hunting skills in some of the Upstate waterways.
This past weekend the K-191 patrolled the clear waters off Cape Vincent in the 1000 Isles. Last month she prowled the sandbars of Sodus Bay, where many very large
targets were to be found. Many were sunk, and some were taken as prizes.

The following photo shows the K-191 posing atop one of her captured prize ships. This is un-retouched, and definitely not one of Paul's fanciful Photoshop compositions!

Man, that's a good picture and I already have ideas of altering that picture so Crazy Ivan looks more like a sea-worthy Captain.....it's very tempting !!!

You guys are cruel! How 'bout some photos? :D

If you don't have a way to get them posted at a decent size, email them to me and I will post them on my site and you can link them to here.

Tim,

We have one posted (a group shot with our new banner!!!) so far under "Upcoming Events and SubRegattas"...

The pictures that I took are on 35mm film and they are waiting to be picked up. I'm having them transfered to digital also. But there were a few others that had digital cameras that should have them ready to post.... :D

Paul

Sorry Tim,
Some lunkhead forgot his camera. But we had a few others who did remember. The others will have to post photos. It was great weather, great food, the pond was clear, and a great bunch of old farts playing with expencive toys. How could it get any better :D BD.
