I think folks assume that more people use the forums than they actually do.  Email works better to confirm things like attendance.

Grendel CAN 70 is planning on it, but we are also looking at alternatives if this doesn't happen.

Nick, #194 is in Chicago, and I have beer, so the two of us at least can have a good time!

Hey Nick. Might be worth posting something on the Facebook page and/or send out some emails. If you need the viper email list just let me know. I can get it to you.

We will have the Sail22 Demo boat there. Either myself or Sam House will be racing the Viper. We both like Beer!!

Thanks for pushing this onto FB. Much easier to see what is going on as it gets pushed to us. CYC is working on their plan for taking care of traveling teams. I will forward info when I hear but I know NOOD was easy just not published.

Thanks,

Ed

I have sent emails to everyone in the GL - will circulate results shortly.
We have to commit - one venue or another - and get people signed up!!

More shortly.

After polling all of the GL owners, with 18 boats responding (and a few who I am sure will reply to my earlier email), there are 8 boats who confirmed and 1 maybe who have all said they will be in Chicago.

This event is being hosted by the Chicago Yacht Club, Belmont Harbour, and held in conjunction with the Verve Inshore Regatta

Event website: https://www.chicagoyachtclub.org/verveinshore

Register at http://www.yachtscoring.com/emenu.cfm?eID=2711

Please get online and register today!

Note that the J70ís at this regatta are sailing 3 days. Vipers will only sail 2 days.

Itís a great venue and has excellent facilities. Just north of the city centre and Lincoln Park, in the Lakeview suburb, this is a fantastic site for Vipers and the club will be a great host. I visited Chicago this past March and really enjoyed some great food, amazing night life and the great location on the lake.

Local owner Tony Bowker (194) claims there is good beer to be had, so grease your wheel bearings and get ready for the road trip, it will be worth it!
