A look straight across. The bottom is visible all the way to the otehr side. The dark area in the middle/center is bottom detail at what seems to be the deepest point, approx 5 feet deep. The shadow of the subs against the bottom helped to gauge proximity to bottom.
Neil Stevens, owner of the Subsim site, came by to watch. A decent interest was shown from people who had seen fliers, website postings, and just walking by.

Mid-afternoon talent show across the pond......
We also had another entertainer show up across the pond for some song and guitar playing.
What's wrong with this picture? She was taken out of service immediately!

The Crozier familey showed up at lunch to feed us all. Thank you!!!!

A young man brought his target to play, and spent some time, and interest, in the submarines. We gave them contact information and a copy of the Report.
Night Run at Discovery Green. Target vs Sub. We drew quite a crowd of onlookers.

Close pass. Good eyes for depth perception.

If you guys like that pond, try making it up to Carmel if there's another SubRegatta there. From your photos, seems like Carmel is a little bit bigger and has a painted concrete bottom. Is that correct, Wayne? It is ideal.
But it's great that you guys now have something so nice close to home.
I had a great time this weekend! Many thanks, Paul, for hosting us!
It was great to see everybody again! I think we had more working subs this year than the last one I attended. The heat did not dampen our spirits, and I think a good time was had by all.
The venue was absolutely wonderful. I've never been to Carmel, but I think Hermann Park would be hard to beat. Not only great for running subs, but so much other stuff right around the area for the rest of the family to enjoy.
Just goes to show you how important Subron5 is
needing security passes. I am planning to come
in 2010. I guess its not my style or good planning
to make it two years in a row. Now all I have to do
is come up with a Sub standard clearance to attend.
Now before some one else says it "We don't need no
stinking badges!" The security passes looked pretty
Don Baker's Sturgeon underway. He and Matt got the boat dialed in. She really performs now. Don won the MVM award -- most valuable modeler. He brought two new boats, a Seehund and a Marder, and both ran well.
