Attention all hands,

The status of our third annual fun run, Sun N Fun 2005, is as follows:

We will return to San Gabriel Park in Georgetown on August 20 - 21 at Arbor A. Many of us will arrive Friday, August 19th and go out to eat together at one of the local restaurants near the Holiday Inn Express, our base HQ.

So far I've heard from many who are coming, both faithful attendees and newcomers. My current count on running subs is six with half again as many active targets as well. The waters will definitely be stirred! Many boats under construction will be there too.

Since the Nautilus seminar was such a hit last year, we've reserved the conference room again for Saturday night. This year's theme will be "Build That Boat". Wayne Frey will demonstrate polyurethane resin casting, Tom Kisler will speak about how he weathered his beautiful USS Scorpion, Gail Phillips will discuss r/c electronics, and Matt Thor will bat clean-up on prinicples of r/c sub construction.

Finally, the official Sun N Fun 2005 t-shirt is in production. Price at the event is $15 for sizes adult M, L, XL. Price for mail delivery is $18 (order via email: Here is the design for the back of the shirt:


So, let's hear from everyone who's coming and what you're bringing! Personally, I can't wait.
Warm regards,

Paul Crozier

Hey Paul!

That T-shirt design rocks! You've got mail.

I and the XO will arrive Friday evening "sometime".
We will have the Scorpion and a target this year;
a 1/96 Liberty Ship running unescorted.

Really looking foward to seeing you all again.

Hi Tom,

Thanks for the kind words about this year's logo. It's taken straight from the battleflag of USS Wahoo (SS-238). The original was designed and made by Mush Morton himself.

It's great to hear you will be attending. I look forward to patrolling with Scorpion and making an approach on your skimmer.

Albert Johnson is planning to attend as well. He has a Type XXI under construction but will be bringing his 1/96 Burke class DDG which is running. So, you won't be unescorted.

Love the T-shirt! Count me in for two of them!

Tom, I can't wait to see your liberty ship! I've got a liberty ship hull (1/96) that I want to build up some time...
