    I could be open to attending in October if no more east coast battles get planned then. Would depend on number of expected captains

    so if its october it could be "The Battle of Valcour Island(Bay)" from the Rev. war on Lake Champlain.... They could have sailed all the way over to Lake Gitchee Gumee! or we could go with something less easy to know like Trafalger.....:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    I’m still possible, but I’ll want to know how many people decide to come out, and certainty of weather (if possible)

    I'll be there. 1 more possible riding with me. trying to get more of PPB to come, that way we can figure out which date (8th or 29th)

    There is no such thing as Bad weather. just bad gear.
