Ahoy there, Mates! It's your fellow MICom submariner David Marquez here to show you some pic's of our first sub run at Nimbus Flat state park at Lake Natoma near Sacramento on Saturday June 23rd. The weather was warm and sunny with a light breeze and our first run comprise of my self and Mark Jones from San Jose, the run went very well and I planed many more runs over the summer and into the fall leading up the the October Fun Run in San Francisco at Golden Gate park casting pond. Enjoy the pic's. David Marquez SC #3014

Hey, way to go, you two! I'm proud of ya both! I'll hope for a better turnout for you next time...where was Lance? And Kinkele? Vilagi? At least the water looked perfect. Any good launching spots? Wish I could've joined you.

Keep a level bubble,

Hey Jeff,

Thank you for the post.

Wish you can be there to join us on the fun too. Lance won't be joining us until Jul 21st, Aug 4th and 18th and Sept 1st. John Kinkel will try to be there Jul 21st and Aug 4th date. As for Paul, I think the drive may be a little out of the way for him. I do have a local guy Jeff Apps will try to make it on Jul 21st. David Marquez SC #3014

I wish I was there, the water looks great! Between travel and other work related duties I'm afraid my fleet is tied up in the harbor for a while. :( I should be freed up after July. I saw the dated Dave posted in the email exchange before thinking that we would choose one, I didn't realize that there would be a fun run on all of the dates. That's good, I was hoping for more venues than the annual San Fran fun run. Thanks Dave!

Hey Lance,

Thanks for taking a look at my post for the lake run. All the run dates that I've mention are open for everyone and will give us more opportunities to meet and have fun :D
