What a difference one day makes in Rochester!! Yesterday was 90 degrees, today was 62 and windy. That didn't stop us from have our best annual International Fun Run yet. All boats ran good and came home with their skippers. No rescues were required, but the Lil Toot was standing by just in case.
All of the 8 Balls, and 5 of the SubRonOn gang enjoyed a beautiful day running their boats with their friends. It doesn't get any better than that!! What a great time and great company! This year Brad and new member Ian came down with their boats too. Hopefully next year Ben Cliffe can make it too.
Don May was the cook again and cooked all of the sausage, white hots, and burgers to perfection. Thanks Don.
Bruce's wife Brenda stayed up late the night before so that we would again have those delicious Butter Tarts! Thanks very much Brenda, they were very much appreciated and didn't last very long!
Here's some pictures:

Many thanks goes out to the 8 Balls for an awesome day. Weather held up for us, food was perfect and nothing sank (unless they wanted it to, sorta speak) Boats all performed as they should and all Captains and Captainess went home happy. Still trying to put out the flames from that Hotass cheese. Nice to meet all of the Rochester gang, thanks, we had a great time !!!

Great fun, great turnout, great food, great friends, so-so weather (62 degrees and very windy) but hay, 4 out of 5 ain't bad. Seriously, thanks to all who attended and made this a fun year-end-event for SubRon8. Another international event thanks to our Canadian friends to the north. Commodore BD, good work......
Patty wanted me to thank everyone again for making the IFU a success. All the wives that made cookies, butter tarts, deviled eggs and such. And the husbands for coming to eat them. Plus my cousin Donnie the chief cook and bottle washer. Commodore BD.
