    Default First Annual Frosty Balls Regatta

    We joked about this at the pond last week so I'm going to toss this out there for your consideration. Having seen numerous YouTube videos, we were thinking of getting together and running for fun in the snow! Weather permitting, it would have to be on short (1 or 2 day) notice. Find a park or field somewhere and run just for fun.

    Not sure of all the particulars yet but thinking just get several boats together (maybe an LSH can turn left in the snow) and run them!

    So how many of you would be interested?

    I'm totally in. We could even toss some buoy out and do some laps. Dumbest thing ever. Can't wait.

    I'm guessing cats would be best.

    X462. They're only spec motors.
    haha I have no idea. I'll have to test come first snowfall.

    Maybe I'll put the 1527/.5y in the Cheetah instead.

    We'll wait until about late January. Before any of us have renewed for 2015. Maybe use a local baseball diamond or something.

    You want in John?

    Could be interesting....Have to see how it fits in with our yearly Jan snowboard trip out west and our yearly Feb beach vacation to Cuba.
