Indoor Pool Sub Run - Carmel Feb 11

Know of an upcoming modeling event?

Postby TMSmalley » Fri Jan 13, 2006 8:51 am

Just a reminder - there will be a SubRon6 fun run at the Carmel (Indianapolis) High School Natatorium (pool) on Saturday, Feb 11 in conjunction with the Indy Admirals Scale boat club. We will be from noon to 5 PM.
If you haven't been to this facility before, see some photos at www.subron6.com in the photo gallery.

It is a perfect indoor sub facility - and there is a good amount of natural light from the large windows on the side of the building. You don't need to be a SubCommittee member to watch, but we ask that anyone running a boat be either a SubCommittee member (get those dues in :;): ) or a member of the Indy Admirals.

Tim,

If you don't mind me asking, how much does it cost to hire that facility?

I checked with Chris Campbell - Indy Admirals Potentate :;): who does the legwork in Carmel for us.

He tells me that his club just leaves a $100 refundable deposit with the city - in case we break anything - but there is no charge to us as a club.

That's great.

i wish that spirit of altrurism existed over here.

I tried a couple of times to find reasonably priced venues, but they all want a ton of money to use the facilities.

What bugs me, is that in many cases, the places sit empty.

Believe me - at most places we would have to pay to rent the facility. Carmel is unusual. The whole place is like Oz :laugh: "Pay no attention to that man behind the RC transmitter!"

Seriously, I have heard from a lot of the guys who went to the regatta last year how the people in Carmel were really friendly and they were treated really well.
