Sat April 18 fun run in York SPECIAL EVENT !!!

Postby subdude » Tue Feb 17, 2009 9:11 pm

Folks,

We have a great opportunity coming up in April to both help out the York YMCA and to promote the model ship / submarine hobby. The April fun run will NOT be held at the Shrewsbury YMCA, but will instead be held at the new Graham Aquatic Center in York. This new center is a part of the York YMCA, and is a brand new facility. They are hosting a "Healthy Kids Day" on Saturday, April 18 from 11:00 until 3:00. The aquatic director in Shrewsbury has asked if we would display and run boats there that day. We'll have the use of the 25 meter indoor pool.

I would appreciate if you all could check your schedules, and put this date on it. Note that it's a Saturday, and will take the place of our regularly scheduled Sunday meet in Shrewsbury.

Please consider coming if at all possible. Even if you don't actually run your boat / ship, it will provide wonderful exposure to the hobby in general and the local clubs for the community and the media. We all lament regularly how the hobby is shrinking, here's your chance to make a difference. Show up, and show off! Let me know if you're coming. I'll follow up soon with directions, etc.

Thanks!

Jim

ps. The regularly scheduled March meet for Sunday, March 8 will be at the Shrewsbury YMCA as usual.

Jim,
That sounds like an interesting event.
Hopefully I will be able to come out with a Type IX that will be under construction.

I gotta learn to read! I was reading and writing April, but thinking March. April 18 is indeed a Saturday, because it is the start of the Gulf Coast Small Craft Festival. Since I can't be in two places at once, I'll have to pass on the York event and settle for Cortez Florida instead.

Show up, and show off! Let me know if you're coming.

The location:

Graham Aquatic Center
542 North Newberry Street
York, PA 17401

From I-83 exit 21 (US Rt 30, Arsenal Rd)
Take US 30 (Arsenal Rd) west
In 1 mile, turn left onto Pennsylvania Ave
In .9 miles, turn left onto Parkway Blvd
in 500 ft, turn right onto Newberry St.
The center is on the left, just past the church.

There is an unloading area and handicapped parking in front of the center. After you have unloaded, there is a parking lot on the other side of the church, with a walkway and bridge over the stream to the center.

Hope we'll see you there!!

The sat image hasn't been updated since they built the new facility (enclosed the pool and added the parking lot) but this should give you the basic idea.

We had a great time! Subs and skimmers coexisting pretty much without incident. Check this out. My first attempt at a video:

Not fancy like yours, but hey, it's a start.....

BTW- Mr Butt Sir!! Is the camera behind the clear dome, and is the dome sealed? Or just like a clear cover. Curious 8-balls want to know :?: :?: BD.

PS-Did the package show up??
