Final Reminder....

snip ->

So it looks like it is a go for Saturday August 16th sub regatta at the cottage. This is a non sanctioned SubcomOn event so alcohol may be present.

My contact details (for the event) are as follows:

House
465 William Street.
Gananoque, Ont.

Cottage
Tremont Park Island
Cottage (613) 382-3509

Cell (613) 859-8928

The plan is to have folks show up at the house (land based) to prepare for the boat ride to the cottage(water based).

Based on the logistics involved I would require an RSVP so I can determine who I would have to transport to the island as well as obtain food.

To simplify things an estimated ETA would be good so I can minimize trips back and forth to the island. It may also be advisable to remind people to minimize their field packs for transport in the boat.

Attached is a map of Gananoque. For explicit directions please visit mapquest and use a destination postal code of K7G 3A8.

For those looking to spend more time in Gananoque to lose some money at the casino ect, you may want to visit http://www.gananoque.com/main.html to get some ideas what things there are to do.

And the reasons why to attend would be :

George,

It sounds like the bulk of folks are arriving around 10 am. That being said I am always willing to pick up out of country folks at their convience ... so anytime!

Glad your coming.

Well you 8-Balls really missed the boat this time, eh?!! This year's event was OUTSTANDING! Ben, thanks for the SUPER hospitality! If I counted correctly, 12 Captains made the scene with 21 submersible craft. Here are some teaser photos.
