July 4, 2009 - RACE

Wow, I just got word what Ross has planned for the race. It sounds like so much fun. Here is what he has planned:

"Just for fun, this July 4 we are planning an informal event to test your knowledge of Milford Lake as well as your sailing skills. At 1:00 sharp, under the shelter, we will hand out a list of Milford Lake trivia questions that can only be answered by making observations from your boat on the water. The challenge will be to sail around the lake to answer as many of the questions as you can before the race ends at 4:00. The team with the most correct answers wins. If there is a tie, the boat who turns in their answers the soonest will be the winner. Prizes will be awarded for the top three finishers. In honor of the Independence Day Holiday, boats displaying an American Flag will be awarded bonus points. It should be a great time--bring family, friends, a Milford Lake map, a GPS unit (not absolutely necessary), and a cooler full of your favorite beverages. "

This just sounds like so much fun. I think we should coordinate our efforts, get some great teams lined up, and really have some fun with this.

Happy sailing. -- Donna


  1. Several items that you might find useful during the July 4 race: binoculars, a standard issue Corps of Engineers Lake Map (I'll tray to have a few extra available), a GPS unit (helpful, but not absolutely necessary, a clipboard and a pencil. More details to come later. Ross
