Hey Jim - we just heard from Big Dave Welch. He is donating one of his BRAND NEW Kilo version 2 Cylinder kit, along with the 1/144 Kilo plastic kit itself for the raffle table.

You da man Dave, thanks!

Here is a shot of the Kilo kit as built - you get yours (if you win) unbuilt along with the Big Dave kit to build the WTC!

The floodgates opened up today, lots of cool stuff to add to the raffle extraveganza!

From Ray Mason, DVDS of SubRegatta 2001, 2002/3, and 2004. Invaluable reference materials, and you get to see how much younger we looked then :wink:

From an Indy Admerals member why chose to remain anonymous (wonder why?) a copy of "The Idiots Guide to Submarines" What's he trying to say? Seriously, it looks cool!

Image

A beautiful donation from Tom Kisler, a framed recreation of the
Bowfin battle flag. Cool!

From Ron Martini, DVD's of The Discovery Channel programs "Submarine: Hidden Hunter" and "Hunt for the USS Alligator"

Also from Ron Martini, a signed by the author copy of the booklet commerating the 100th anniversary of the USS Holland, SS1. Please be advised that if you win this book, I'm going to be ready and willing to commit crimes against humanity to pry it away from you.

Thanks to all!
