Hey Chuck.  BJ and i were hoping to make it this year.  He broke his wrist today en route to helping Don at the Mallory on LNYC so it looks like he is out for the rest of the 2011 season.  we are disappointed.  Have a great regatta.  Emily

Team scram #159 has been registered for some time and will be there.  The Ultimate 20 Class being the fast, fun, freindly & fair folks that we are will be once again be a sponsor for this event.  Bad news about BJ and his accident this morning, ya know, sometimes people will do the strangest things to get out of a little work.  Yesterday BJ put up the jibs on the eleven U20s for the Mallory Cup races satrting today and we certainly missed him today on the water manning the U20 support boat.

So far you and I are the only ones racing. I haven't heard of anyone else coming. Steve normally brings 228, 50 and his mixing machine.
