We are now 35 and not even half way there....

Let's all get registered - this is one of North America's best sailing venues!

Registration is off to a very solid start.  Maybe there will be a couple more boats from the GL Region.  I would expect another 3-5 entries from WLIS at minimum, and hopefully at least 3-5 more from the Chesapeake.  There's only one GYA entry so far, and that is very likely to improve, hopefully by a lot.  There's hopefully 1-2 more Marblehead entries in the hopper.  Plus I know of a couple of people looking for charter boats already.  So I think it's safe to assume that at some point in the process, hopefully in the next couple of months, we'll be at 50+ entries for Kingston in case anyone reading this from far away is debating whether to make travel plans.

The working plan is a street hockey tournament (sneakers/feet, sticks, ball, unclear if there will be goalies or not) - single elimination, teams organized by region (whether that means Annapolis, or Chesapeake A, Chesapeake B, etc., but hopefully there will be enough Annapolis sailors to field an Annapolis team), 6 on 6, short games (5 minutes?) to minimize odds of there being a cardiac event, champion team to get some prize to be determined (likely a case or two of Molson or Labatts), folks not playing or spectating will be eating / drinking around the field / concrete.  Post tourney, there will be a USA vs. Canada All-Star Game, with players drafted 2018 NBA Draft Style by assigned captains (Brad Boston for Canada, Zeke Horowitz for USA) to play a 10-minute game, if Americans win, a bottle of the finest Canadian Club, and if Canadians win, a bottle of the finest Jack Daniels.  Unclear if those drafted will receive custom jerseys for the occasion to motivate people to play hard in the tourney and be drafted, but maybe we can make up some t-shirts that will become highly coveted collectors items.
