View Full Version : Open water for the rest of 2014

08-06-2014, 12:28 AM
I thought I would start a post here for Open Water announcements for the remainder of the 2014 season.
That being said, I will be at the pond around 6pm on 8/6.


08-06-2014, 01:11 PM
See you there!!!

08-06-2014, 01:25 PM
ill git there

08-09-2014, 12:47 AM
Bump for saturday practice. To my knowledge open water will start at 10am on 8/9/14.

08-09-2014, 12:58 AM
Yep I'll be there, I have the motor and battery so we can run into as many buoys as we want!!!

08-09-2014, 11:20 PM
Good times.

Tom - Sorry I passed on the right and corrected left causing the blowover. Almost as bad as Ty when he's in the lead.....zig zagging.....roughin' up the water. Damn, he's dirty. Lol.

08-10-2014, 02:38 PM
It's looking like may make Sundays race without dear old dad. How cool is that?

08-12-2014, 05:47 PM
Yes I will be there for open water on Wednesday, high water or not!!

08-14-2014, 10:50 AM
Man, I took another beating in the wed night grind line race. I kept bragging how fast my LSH was and then Tom took me to the cleaners, especially in the turns. Something to be said about a lighter boat changing directions. Anyhow, I think Tommy is leading in grind line points this the year.....something I used to take pride in.

08-14-2014, 11:46 AM
Lies!! All Lies!!:doh:
BTW no matter how you look at it Pete, you are still leading in LSH points and not just "gring Line" points!:roflol:

08-19-2014, 09:07 AM
As per our usual, the Wednesday after a club race the pond will not be open. So no open water this Wednesday the 20th.

08-19-2014, 10:03 PM
:ohmy: Whaaaaaaaattttttt??!!! Then when am I going to be able to play with my new aquacraft pro fishermen???? :huh:



08-22-2014, 08:09 AM
Is there practice on Saturday 23Aug??

08-22-2014, 02:17 PM
Yep. 10:00am until the pain stops.

09-03-2014, 10:14 AM
Yes there will be open water today. 9/2.

09-10-2014, 09:19 AM
Gates will be open today weather permitting!

09-10-2014, 09:28 AM
We'll see. 100% chance of rain according to weather bug.

09-10-2014, 04:41 PM

09-10-2014, 05:27 PM
I'm not coming out today either. Hope that doesn't screw you guys up too bad as I have the motor for the the retrieve boat.

Hey, trying to sign up for the race, and rcracingevents is down. Just want to sign up for LSH.

09-11-2014, 07:20 PM
Not a problem Todd. Got you down.


09-12-2014, 09:24 AM
Hey Tom
Just tried to get on to RC Racing also, I will continue to try throughout the day and if it does not come on line put me in for SV27 and LSH. And (if possible) keep Jeff and myself out of the same heats so we can pit one another and it helps with charging also.

09-12-2014, 01:09 PM
Will there be open water tomorrow?

09-12-2014, 01:44 PM
Yes sir.

09-12-2014, 08:48 PM
i'll be there too! need more time with the sx400 on the pond!:Praying: no more rain please.

09-17-2014, 12:46 PM
No open water tonite. The Wednesday after a race.

Will be there on Saturday 10 o'clock.


09-20-2014, 11:46 PM
sat. the 20th. terry and tom set a new bouy for the offshore class course! it was tried out today and may become the new layout for next year. try it out guys while you can-----the core would like feedback on this new position--which would remove the long run bouy on the back side of the course and cut retrival time down. please note the course will remain as is for the rest of the year.:banana::banana:

09-22-2014, 08:50 AM
The new pin is basically in the bay where we keep the retrieve boat. It's not in the normal lanes of traffic or anything. It's outside of that. Could be moved a bit further out maybe. It's pretty cool to drive. It's not a "NAMBA" course but we don't really have enough pond to go 100% legal anyway.

This layout is basically 180 degrees opposite of what we ran in Phoenix and London. The difference being that you can see the offset pin really well since it's in the front close to shore. Hope you guys dig it too.

We wont be running points on this course this year or anything. Wouldn't be fair to those that have done well on the big course but for sure give it a try before the snow flies. Like to know what you all think of it.

09-22-2014, 08:30 PM
I really liked the course. The offshore left is more of a turn than a slight veer. Would like to see it used next year.

09-25-2014, 07:56 AM
Need string of garlic for Wed nights. Lost a pint of blood last night to the vampire mosquito.

10-04-2014, 09:43 AM
anyone going to the pond today if it stops raining?

10-14-2014, 12:08 PM
Due to the diminished available light on Wednesdays, open water on Wednesdays will be cancelled for the rest of the season. We will still have open water on Saturdays starting at 10am.

10-22-2014, 11:13 PM
sat. looks like a great day, coming for another get together before winter gets here----feels like its here now! might be the last one of the year,come on out guys,racings over but the fun times aren't!:sinking-guy:

10-23-2014, 08:50 AM
John's right. It's kinda cool to turn some laps when it doesn't matter too. Just fer fun. Remember? Plus you can give the potential offshore course a spin. Still not sure about that. Sure could use some more opinions.

We can talk trash and tell lies about next year. Scare the crap out of everyone with your build plans.

Hey, did you guys know there are some guys trying to pull together an actual SAW club right here in MI? Might be cool.

10-23-2014, 08:58 AM
Wait....SAW is that like "I SAW the boat go straight" . . . or "I SAW the boat almost make a turn?


10-31-2014, 04:10 PM
Supposed to be 36 degrees at 10am tomorrow. We'll see who's dedicated now. bahaha

Come on! It ain't over until the fat ladies big butt is frozen to the surface of our pond! Then we'll use the heat gun.

Think I'll leave Tyler at home.

10-31-2014, 07:56 PM
I'll be there. I have mystery things to test :biggrin:!!

11-01-2014, 10:59 AM
I actually was preparing to come out there....then this new thing called 'common sense' entered my thoughts. I'll never let that happen again!!!!! Darn it. Missed it.

11-07-2014, 11:54 PM
going to be cold--but no ice--still time to let'em rip guys--i'll be there,will any body else? :noidea:

11-08-2014, 02:09 AM
I'll be there. Will probably be one of the last open waters.

11-08-2014, 07:03 AM
I'm currently in a tent in the woods so not me.

37 degrees. Yikes.

11-14-2014, 05:30 PM
Well as the cold weather approaches less and less turn out for Open water on Saturdays. I will not be there tomorrow so it's up to Mr. Davis. On another note I don't know if we even have the permit for these November days?

11-14-2014, 09:30 PM
staying home-building for next season already! see you guys at the club meeting nov. 22 at 1:00 p.m. on second thought somebody twist my arm and then maybe-------!:bash:

11-15-2014, 12:34 AM
Well, Ty really wants to go. Sicko. We spent last weekend in a tent so what's a few more hours? We're going swimming in the afternoon.

Figure 11 if you're coming out. Maybe it will warm up a few degrees.

11-15-2014, 06:51 PM

11-15-2014, 07:13 PM

11-15-2014, 07:25 PM

Got one run in before I broke my radio.

11-15-2014, 07:55 PM
