2008 NAC Registration Deadline

July 5 is the deadline to get your NAC registration in the mail! It seems we Scot sailors have a way to go to get to the 119 boats that Fishing Bay hosted last year. As a member of Nockamixon Sail Club Fleet 163 in Pennsylvania, I am very glad to see that our fleet has more boats signed up than any other, but... I would think that a radius of nearly any size has more Scot's within driving distance of Tom's River than nearly anywhere else. We should easily be able to have a hundred boats. We can race each other at home on Lake Nockamixon... See you at the NAC! [8D] Phil Scheetz FS 4086

Do not know how 'things are' in PA, but with fuel at $4 a gallon

Do not know how 'things are' in PA, but with fuel at $4 a gallon and the least expensive room I can find is over $175 a night plus taxes (another $25) and food for two, it works out to over double what my budget was for Deltaville. Additionally, it is an extra day's drive there and back, which tacks on another $250 bucks. Sorry, but won't be going to Wisconsin, either. Even further away from the southeast. On a positive note, planning to be at the mid-winters for the next two years. As far as a radius of Scot owners, you may be right; however, a radius of Scot racer's would be an imaginative point between VA/NC, Texas and Florida. Go back in time and look at Lake Norman participation, the southeast/texas IS where it's at. I am not being critical of venue or management at all (and wish them 'off the hook' success), the national economy has dealt a wicked card that may play for years to come and if so, we have to look to more a regional concentration of participants vs. moving regatta's around nationally 'to be fair to all fleets'. One item that impressed me with Deltaville was the number of 'families' that were there, vacation style (mine included) and of course, to add in that expense for Fishing Bay ... it is further out reach financially. Please do not change the mid-winter venue (as has been discussed), it is affordable, family friendly and a great club (SPYC) too boot ! Hope Mike Noone continues to show everybody the way to the windward mark and has a drink on me. HPicco #5257

It's a give and take. For me the Wisconsin NAC is finally a NAC close enough that I can attend and I'm excited about it.
