We can't watch from our boats? That sucks.

I know it would really depend on the lake conditions, but how about watching from on on the Lake?

Jack are you leaving your boat at NP and driving to the race? I didn't understand your post.
I'm thinking of trailering to NP. It would be a long run back to Portage if the Lake gets nasty.

Northpoint slip information:

Contact Cindy Holland at Northpoint Marina
847-746-2845
Tell her you are with Chicago Offshore Powerboats
$15 per night for any length boat

They will try and keep everyone together in large slips, but the downside is that low voltage power will not be available. It will probably be 50A 240 V which requires an adapter that can be purchased at West Marine or other retailers.

If you need low voltage power it may be available but the chances are slim. All of the smaller slips with low voltage power are sold for the season and it is doubtful that many people will be leaving during the biggest party of the year. You may be able to get it but you will probably be away from the group.

Please contact me if you have any questions

Payton,

There is a big seawall between the lake and the race course. (similar to Navy Pier)
If we anchor in the lake it would probably be hard to see the boats.

Payton,
Did you make reservations at Northpoint yet? Are you going to make it Friday night or Saturday?

It sounds like Candyman will be there.
I am curious of how many we will have in our group at Northpoint for Friday night and how many on Saturday night. Should be a good time. Hopefully we can get together on the same dock.

Steve,
We ordered our adapter, should have it early next week.

Steve(42sonic) will also be joining us.

For those that wonder which adapter here is a link.
http://www.boatfix.com/bymfg.ASP?make=MARINCO

The model number is 121A. This hooks 250V, 50A to 125V, 30A (typical shore power cord). However, depending on your shore power cord you may require a different adapter. Make sure you know what you have.

I just got off the phone with NP Marina. I'm all set for saturday night. That's the only night I'm staying. They said they are trying to put us all together.

Rick,
My plan was to launch Saturday morning at NP. I have a slip reserved for Saturday evening. I hate to say it but I think we may be better off going by land to see the races. I was shocked to see the course totally in the harbor. I'm not sure what we are going to do now. I don't want to blow off a day of boating. Any suggestions????

Dan

Since you are going to drive, do you think about 30 of us could pile in your pickup for a ride up to the race?

And by the way SHOTGUN!!!

"I think we may be better off going by land to see the races. "

Watch out Candyman - I think people have been shot for saying a lot less.
