Your Red RD needs to make the chilie and needs to make enough. Did I say "with your confirmed reservatio, you can have some"?

It was a tough day today at the pond. Wind direction was terrible....90 degree shifts. sw to nw. Our pond is ok with either, but it was west most of the day the other worst direction! RD (Luscomb and Losell) struggled "chasing the wind", but they could not catch it! Wind was A rig in the morning, then around one, folks began to switch to B and there was talk of C!!!!!. Most were there by 1:30 or so.

We had 3 new sailors in the class andthis was their first regatta! Greco, Scavala and Brewer. We are very glad to have them! WELCOME!!!!

Last night, the boys and girl got together and told me I should sail. Well it did not take too long. Gibby offered to RD and I sailed! (should have stayed RD...it is too hard to do both!) Than you Gibby! THe team of volunteers that were here to help were really an Army! The food was excellent. Breakfeast was like a bake sale..with fruit and coffe. Lunch was Pizza, footlong hot daogs, and Luscombs homemade chilie,,,,Thanks to alll that helped!!!

Tommorrow is forcasted to be a growler out of the north. Good for our pond, but growler not so good. I am hoping that the blast from this front gets it over with and moves on. Tonights lows with wind chill...35. High tommorrow....55, sunny and 15 to 17!!!! cold for us thin blooded whimps..but at leasts the ponds are not frozen.

Gold Fleet:

Perkins 36
Dion 54

Jon and PBG team: Great time, wonderful hospitality and perfect venue with more buoys than I have ever seen in one place. Loved the chance to visit and race with the Florida gang. You made it special for all of us. Glad I bought long pants on Friday. I will never forget the 250 times you announced the course. Let me see if I remember: Start between the two Yellows and go White White, Yellow, Yellow, Yellow, White, White, Yellow, Yellow, Yellow, White, White, Yellow, Yellow and finish between the white (with black stripe) and the bright orange. Reminded me of the instructions that the men memorized for the attack in the Dirty Dozen movie. "Franko goes in where the others have been. We all come out like it's Halloween." Love to see you guys and gals come north this Spring and Fall. Liberty Bell, Mystic, Stowe and Tilghman await.

Fantastic run regatta. Great company and wonderful evening venues both nights. Good winds and temps on Saturday, but a stretch to the far side of the lake made it challenging. High winds and a Canadian Blast of cold air cut racing short on Sunday. The two with C-rigs were willing and able, but it was just a matter of time before someone was going to get holed. It was great to meet some new faces, Fred Greco, Chester Brewer and Earnan Scavela. It is nice to see some growth in the class and especially Earnan who is probably the youngest EC12 skipper in the country now. Welcome aboard.

Good job all around from the PBGMYS and special thanks to Doc and Kelli on the frontal lobotomy. The stitches don't itch at all.

Thanks a bunch everyone.
