Accuweather has removed the chance of rain on Sunday. Lets hope for a great weekend and safe boating. Looking forward to seeing everyone. My boat is still at the shop but I have been promised it will be ready even if they have to give me a loaner drive.

No such luck. Just a loaner Bravo on my boat.

The yacht club is inside the wall, but outside the safety zone. We should be able to come and go as we please.

There are quite a few coming up Saturday AM. I am not sure if it is realistic for us to leave much earlier. If we leave at 11 it will conservatively take us about one hour to get to Milwaukee and park. (Some might make it in 20 minutes) We will leave proptly at 11. If anyone is late they can head North on their own.
The races don't start until 1. We can always grab a cab to the north end of the park. It will be a 5 minute ride. I will leave at 10 if the others want to as well.

OK, I'm blind Apparently dumb Peggy tells me I can't hear and on more than one occasion I've been called crazy:

I think these are all requirements to own and operate a power boat.

Thanks for setting up the slips.

ok....before i go back and read through 7 pages of this stuff.....where will the race boats be docked for viewing?

I think Karl and i may shoot up to Mlwke early in the day to check things out and go back down to Chicago for the redbull flugtag thing.....may swing by NP around 11ish when you guys are all leaving and say hi.

Wally,

The boats will be at Mckinley Marina in Milwaukee on the North end of Veteran's Park.

Steve,

Wally,

Don't go up the river. There are three holes in the breakwall. Go in the Northern most entrance and you will be right in front of McKinley Marina.
This map shows it pretty well. You want the marina just North of the "North Safety Zone"
