SubComEast has been approached by the director of the National Capital Area Council for the Boy Scouts with a request to support the upcoming Cub Scout Jamboree this weekend (Saturday, May 19th) at their new camp area in Haymarket, VA. This is going to be a huge event with lots of other activities and events for the Scouts.
In my conversations with the director, we have been offered an opportunity to showcase the r/c sub hobby using their large outdoor Olympic size pool. Since it's still a bit on the cool side, we'll have the pool to ourselves. In return for supporting this event, we are being offered access to the site for running our boats whenever there isn't a Scouting event planned. (yea!)
A group of us (Jim Butt, Andre Burgess, Don Finnerty, and I) are planning on supporting this request. I know this is late notice but if anyone would like to join us, please drop me an e-mail and I'll be glad to send details like directions, etc.
-hope to see you there!
