After doing some further investigation into this matter, it really does appear that the SFMYC is the party that dropped the Surface Portion of this regatta, granted that they really did not have much to do with it to begin with out side of a few people in that club, and the biggest pusher of this moved away at the biginning of the year.
The main point is, this event is now behind us, and it is time to look forward to next years event, weather it will be an all submarine event or nbe a full Military Ship and sub regatta is being worked on.
You guy out there want a West Coast event, well you have to do more then just say what you want, YOU HAVE TO GET INVOLVED.
My Vote is for it to go back to being a Military Ship Regatta and that the Subcommittee is involved.
Lets all play together and further the hobby as a whole.
I have been in the hobby for 36 years and in the business for over 25 years now, I can see the trends of where this hobby is going...it is not good boys and girls.
Tom, I know that you have worked hard to further the Model Submarine hobby in the Bay Area and have dedicated a lot of your own resources to further this goal, none of my Post or this thread were ment to cast a shadow on you or your efforts. This thread was ment get people interested in going to the regatta, by seeing what other people were bringing.
