    The Official New England Classic Mako Funament Style Convoy !!!!! Aug 11 & 12 at Sandy Point in Stonington CT

    EVENT HELPERS/Organizers WANTED



    This 1st post will be updated with changes as time moves forward...

    EVENT PLANNING* VOTE LINK * http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/5PMKQ5Z

    Here's were to VOTE on the date.

    Tournaments / Prizes / Cookout / Sponsors / & More !

    UPDATED MAY 9th 2012 :

    Location Sandy Point ! I think I'll be trying to leave from Stonnington or another local ramp...... It sounds like a good central location aside from Block Island. Guys coming from MA RI CT NY NJ looks like so far.

    I Just received some nice intel on another Island That would be great.... Less people & less rules. We have some new options to consider in the same area.



    It's time we represent with a real New england Cook Out, Fishing convoy, Prizes, t-shirts & more... We're still deciding on a date july / august somewhere Possibly out to Block Island Or Point judith . Gloucester would be fun But way too far north for some of the boys.

    Wish I could drive all the way to florida this year. But not yet !

    ((( Maybe one of the old salts that have been around for more yrs will take the reigns & I can help AS MUCH as needed. I'm a better Gunnery Sergeant than Captain at this point in my classic mako career.

    We need a good New England CM Captain to help me make this ship shape.

    Stage 1) Decide on our Date / Time / Location Looking like Sandy Point off Pt judith.

    The ned of August Might give those finishing up more time to join. But June & July Are still open too. We need to vote.

    Stage 2) I'll start some Art Work for our Shirts & Maybe one of my Wooden fish for a Prize.

    Maybe after my next build I'll move up the ranks & learn a thing or two to compete with all your beautiful vessels. I;m already dreaming of a larger scrap heap for a 6 yr PT build. It's really become a way of life now... Wandering out to grind & build.

    Thanks Dave !

    Patrick

                I see a few Contests & Tournament Brewing. And you know I'll have a sick piece of Art for one of the trophies. One of my wooden Mounts. I already started the Art for our page & shirts.

                Comments from the old page :

                WILDMAN Said : Provincetown, Race Point. Leave it open ended for a couple days (maybe a weekend) so the guys coming across the bay can 'pick a day' when its not so windy. Or trailer over to Truro and launch there for the guys with the smaller boats.

                TPG Said:Lots of places around the Cape/Islands to meet up.

                Weir mako 21 Said :I'd be up for it if we can get a date that works. Of course the North shore would work too .

                -John

                dhnehlsen Said:

                I would take the trip across the sound. Just remember us LI guys

                SaabMarine : Gets A Shirt & Wish you were here package.

                Let's get this Rollin'

                    The only thing about the end of summer is it seems (to me anyhow) that things get a little hectic with kids going back to school, etc. It's like everyone is winding down and getting into "responsibility mode" again LOL! Let's have a vote like you said and I'll be happy to go along with whatever the result [8D]

                      End of August is no good for me.... Back to school!!! Let's do end of July. July 27th weekend?

                      I like the idea Sandy Point. It is perfectly in the middle for everyone. I will be launching out of Orient.

                            Goto Goggle maps and place "Sandy Point, CT" in and it will come right up.

                            From Orient you would cross the race and either go South of Fishers Island towards Watch Hill, RI or if weather is snoty you can go towards new london and then cut through Fishers Island Sound North of the Island. Either work. it's 17 Miles from Sandy point to Montauck, NY as the crow flies.

                            I vote for the following:

                            June 30 & 31

                            July 7, 8

                            But I am open to dates later in the summer.

                            Once scool gets near it will get tough.

                            Also we normaly see a lot of Storms in Aug and Sept and surf and wind pick up.
