Looks like we're pretty done except if we want to do something before April 22nd. Austin Governor's cup is April 8th. 

 

Bridge Too Far/Governor's cup - FEEDBACK NEEDED

Conroe Board Boat Regatta - April 22-23 (firm)

Rush Creek Spring Dinghyfest May 6-7 (firm)

Seabrook Summer Solstice June 17-18 (tentative)

Austin Centerboard September 16/17 (firm)

Rush Creek Dingyfest October 14-15 (firm)

Wurstfest November 4-5 (firm)

 

I agree Claire. I'll get with Harpoonette and if everyone is in agreement We will go ahead and get the schedule posted to the website. I'll see if I can get in touch with Seabrook and confirm Summer Solstice. My thoughts are count the best five of seven. We have two each in Houston, Dallas and Austin, then Wurstfest for our finish.

Austin also has camping, cabins for rent, and decent priced hotels in the area. Wurstfest is awesome and probably the best bet but if the dates don't work. Rush creek doesn't have camping and the hotels are $$$ up there. Nice folks though.

Ummm Claire,

     Rush creek does have camping. Excellent large field to set up tents and you can be right on the water. Showers and bathrooms are accessible 24/7.  Claire your spot on correct in no close, very affordable accommodations.

Another thought would be to just use the permanent marks and run some races.

Hi all,

     I have been in contact with Stillhouse. Currently as it stands if we decide to do it.. We would be doing it on our own. We'd have to keep our own time and I'm not sure there would be any support boats if trouble was to occur or the wind died like a couple of years ago.  Let me know your thoughts as to should we or shouldn't we.  Austin Yacht Club had their January board meeting and I should be getting the details of this years schedule soon. I will post them when available.

Regards,

FM

Hello, my name is Clay Poulson and I am the President of the US Fireball class.
Right now our class is looking for a location to hold our 2017 National Championship in the fall. September, October, or into November would be ideal.
Texas would be a good location as it is a fairly equal drive for our western and eastern fleets.
We do have several boats in Texas and I myself have raced a Fireball in Austin 6 years ago.
If you folks would be interested in having us that would be great. We could probably only muster around 8-12 boats so not quite enough for a stand alone regatta. We would be willing to race with any other club boats or one design classes.
Please let me know if there is a regatta that might work.

Hi Clay,

     I'd have to agree with Charlie, Wurstfest regatta would be a fine choice. Excellent venue and there is the Wurstfest itself for evening entertainment.
