SWITCH THEM,

you have my permission!!!

The coast in October is much nicer than in the spring time. AND I'm getting tired of watching nEIls canopies get blown about.

On a side note-- John -have you made it to the city to watch the Kiwi's dominate?? Think Jimmy can win 8 of the next 9 to retain the cup? slim chance. and about your axles, if you were so worried about your hubs only dropping 1/2" when lifted you could have just switched to steel rims and solid rubber tires.

Hey this thread is alive again.. lots of stuff going on here for sure. Our thoughts go out to the "Sunshine" crew hoping things go as planned and a speedy recovery... DG and the dreaded black tank woes.. familiar territory here as I just finished one up.. crappy job but someone has to do it. Jeff, I like the idea of switching to Jackson in the springtime and maybe a new venue for the fall? Casini is close to home and I was just getting used to the "F" troop but who knows... Bob, if you see this put me down for a hat too! Looking forward to seeing the gang soon!

Vinnie and Cindy

Coastalview,
You can book Becky and me for Thursday Oct 9, 2014 thru Tuesday Oct 14, 2013. We are happy to get together with the group anytime spring or fall at Jackson so swapping the dates is fine with us.

DG,
I agree that the Cup is on its way to NZ... but it sure is fun to see those 72 foot cats fly around the course.

Everyone else,
See you at Jackson!

Glad we have a host for Happy Hour.. We may take on Thursday evening cocktails, assuming a smaller and more intimate group..

And DG, NO I haven't made it to City for America's Cup racing.. I am enjoying watching snippets of AC-72's nearly flip or foiling 3' out of water at 35 knots, but three really bothersome work projects are keeping me lashed to PC.. All have late September deadlines.. Sigh.. <No added comments about failed retirement needed..> I think if Spithill and Ellison pull off the necessary wins to retain the Cup, the judges will disassemble their boat on the dock to figure out how they cheated.. I am assuming next round will be in Auckland, and we'll be watching races on cable-only TV at 2 AM in 2016.. Seems a shame, as SFO Waterfront is perfect location, but a lot of San Franciscans seem happy to see Ellison lose...

And as for axles, we already have steel rims, and all of the prior suspending was via tirewall flex.. Now the wheels can actually be observed rising and falling as trailer flies over rough roads... The only other alternative to new axles would be "Tundra Tires" which have lots of give in them, and glide over small boulders and tree trunks on small aircraft...

Things that have been noted are weather, rates, availability, other rallies, other calendar activities, personal interests, etc.
Once again the fall rally will be held at Jackson in October 2014. This location is becoming more popular each year; I generally discuss our contract with Jackson Staff 16 to 18 months in advance of our annual rally here and needed to commit to dates for October 2014. Their booked most of next year already and it was in best interest to reserve dates for October today. I've set the dates for October 10-12, 2014 and will be signing a contract.
I plan to discuss with many of you either through this thread or at Jackson next month the rotation of the Jackson rally to April beginning in 2015.
Seems a bit crazy to think so far ahead; but group arrangements can be a challenge.

To change rotation for Jackson to the spring time in 2015, it will need to be secured by April, 2014.
Now is anyone volunteering to host happy hour Friday night, or do we all storm a site by random!

Hey Jeff,

We support the switch! If we end up going to Casini in the fall, the weather is much more pleasant (less windy)....and, maybe we can get better rates that time of year (wishful thinking, I know).

Cheers, Dee

DG,

Don't you have I've if those "way back" machines made by Professor Peabody? If not, I would gladly share mine with you or Jimmy (although I think he needs it more than you do at the moment). Worked late tonight so we didn't get to watch today's races on TEVO. Hopefully we will be pleasantly surprised and Oracle can keep the racing going. But I do believe the 35th AC will be sailed in NZ.

See everyone soon!

We'd be fine with making the time of year change for Casini and Jackson. Additionally, please mark us down for Jackson for 2014.

WOOO HOOO; party @ Ric & Jeans. I'll be all over that friday evening!!

I got the plumbing almost finished today. 1/3 of the holes in the frames would not hold the bolts in, rusted out. Next move is to locate some self tappers and wind them in, I could drill out the frame and re-tap, don't really see the need with the new technology fasteners.
Bob, we're not going to move Jackson, it's there to stay, just gonna attempt to change the dates we stay there.. lol Then again it is a sovereign nation, so we'll have to check with them
Jimmy pulled off a masterful start today to postpone the end of it all another day! The bartenders in New Zealand are lovin him!!!
Got the diffuser panels cut for the new led lights in the bathroom, I'll attempt to form them tomorrow with my heat gun.
I know no one is reading this as few have voiced their opinion on SWITCHING THEM..lol
I'm ready to rally
