F18 Clinic

AustinCats & 2WireSailing (our local AHPC Dealer) will hold an F18 clinic at AYC on Saturday January 8, 2011.  
We will be working on boat handling, starts and mark roundings.  
John Tomko will be running the clinic and he will be shooting video on the water for review during dinner and drinks at the clubhouse.

Philippe Better has graciously agreed to organize the meal, and I will organize the rum.
We are planning to have grilled ribeyes and all the rum anyone could drink (Well, maybe anyone but Beuerlein)

We are looking for volunteers to run chase boats and to grill steaks.  
The expected cost will be less than $20 per person.

We will make a go/no-go weather decision on Friday January 7 at noon the announcement will be made on the mailing list.

We have three F18s committed already:
Philippe on his Tiger
Luke & Laura on their Infusion
Your Commodore on his C2

Please let me know if you would like to participate or volunteer.
Volunteers eat and drink free, but we need a head count so we know how much food to buy.  I already know how much rum to buy (as much as I can!).
