I'm definitely going to try to get to this one. It will be my first Regatta. I'm looking forward to bringing the Nautilus and Victoria out for some playtime with the other bubbleheads.

Looks like its about four and a half hours from Port Angeles, so if I tack on another couple of hours for the ferry ride, it should be a decent day's travel.

I hope lots of people can attend, I'd love to start putting faces to names!

I'm living in Edmonton, AB right now but by summer next year I hope to be living in Vancouver (wife is applying for grad-school @ UBC). That means the drive will be very similar to Bobs. Hey, maybe we could get a sub-convoy going :;):.

Even if we don't move I think I still might make an effort to come down. It'd be one heck of a drive but I think it'll be worth it! Make a nice vacation state-side.

I'll be bringing the SF Storm (my unique scratch build) provided that it actually works when I get it finished.

Look forward to seeing you all!

Hey, Dan! Just hop on Westjet and hit Victoria (its a direct flight). You can stay with me overnight and we'll drive out together. Lots of room in the van for subs and people!

Bob,

I'll look into it however all hopes are riding on my wife getting into UBC (were beign very confidant!!!) meaning no need for a flight then cause we'll be out there then. Driving down together sounds like a less boring option though!! :D

I look forward to it!
