    Default Wave Blasters Race and Test & Tune Schedule?

    Does anyone know the Wave Blasters schedule? I'd like to go check them out but would hate to drive over an hour for naught.

    Hi Dean,
    I just spoke to Jeff Shipley and he and a few others plan to attend the "Test and Tune" this Sunday.
    They usually meet from about 8 am to 11am. Keep in mind that we have had a lot of rain this week,
    but from what I understand they plan on attending. We may not have a full size rescue boat there,
    but they have a model tug set-up for the difficult retrievals.
    Hope this helped,
    enjoy the pond,
    and thanks for the inquiries,

    Dean,the Wave Blasters do not have any regularly scheduled organized test and tune days.The best we can offer is open water after racing on race days and after 10am on scale boating days.A recovery boat will not be available on non race days,so bring your fishing pole!

    Absolutely the best time to come check us out would be a race day.We race every other Sun at 10 am and our next race will be Jan 19.

    Scale model boating has use of the pond until 10am on non race days.

    I hope this helps you or anyone else planning to travel to check us out.

    Tomorrow is scale boating until 10am,no FE boats on the pond until 10am.After 10,probably no one will be here.Like I said,it's best to visit on a race day.Next race...Jan 19,2014.

    BTW,what is your interest,Scale Boating or FE?

    Just trying to save you from a drive for naught!

    I'd be interested in driving across the state for a race. Can I get on an e-mail list. What classes do you usually run.

    RDC,

    I Just joined the club this past week and attended my 1st race Sunday as well. From what I recall, they had a stock SV27 class, a modified SV27, a stock Revolt 30, a modified Revolt 30 And some offshore class. Maybe p- limited offshore. May have been others but I don't recall.

    I just tried to sign up and the site is not adding up the dollar amount for the number of races I entered correctly. I'll check back later.

    Default Made some corrections

    Made some corrections....
    Both days are now working.
    Seems as though very slight deviations lock the program up.
    We also changed the first boat / registration fee to $5 additional
    dollars rather than $10. Having this posted as a 2 separate day event
    would cause that charge to be $20 total instead of the $10 as it has been for the past years. So making it $10 per day remedies this problem.
    We have posted it as 2 separate 1 day events to keep the heat sheets better for each day. It makes sense if you were there the past couple of years when the 2nd round heat numbers jump all over the place.
    Let me know if anyone has any additional problems,
    Thanks,
    Ken
