    Crona is the only deterrent and 12 or 13 hours drive, on the plus side, it is all down hill!

      Rick,

      We were talking about putting someone in charge of events and excursions for non-sub people.The owner of the resort also runs a travel company and we could potentially hook up with rafting, shopping, hiking or other activities to keep them busy. If kids come, we could organize soccer/football/frisbee games on site as well.

        Any Casinos? and near-by corn-field perhaps? I'll bring my own shovel.

              Do you think four month notice might be a little tight?

                If vacations had to be planned around a school year yes, this is an unreasonably short heads-up. However, thanks to the Kung-Flu the kids are home and looking for something to do. Also, as many vacation venues are closed or of questionable availability this quick-draw regatta should garner significant attendance by cabin fever crazed model ship drivers.

                  I'm already in, Groton cancelled anyway and who knows when Joe Oliver nails it next year,

                  Great location personally. Yes it's a 14 hr drive from eastern Long Island, 3-4 of which is battling thru the NY Metro. But it's only 7 hours from Summerfield FL for "Sub" Eddie.

                  Making for a GREAT yearly Father/Son event for me.

                  Reserve a block of hotel rooms for the "Tribe".
