Recruiting for Crew and Drinking Crew Slots, Sunrise Regatta

note for crew, potential crew, supporters, and friends of Team Black Magic

Summer's ending quickly; Tad is already back in school (and had two music lessons this afternoon plus Pre-Calculus and US History homework tonight). We learned a lot in Colorado (Dillon with a hundred other boats!) and had some nice sailing last weekend. This past week we re-rigged and launched Black Magic after returning from Colorado, some of us got to sail both at the Butte (with Zorro) and at Heron, we ordered sails and boat stuff, worked on a marina, and helped some Scouts start on their sailing merit badge. That's a decent week.

On Carol Anne's behalf -- she hates bugging people and thinks Torquemada had something to do with inventing the telephone -- I want to check with you on when you'd be available as crew, support crew, boat riggers, advisors, coaches, cheerers-on, spectators, scenic tour passengers, dinner guests, sources of wisdom / encouragement / consolation, drinking buddies for Carol Anne and the fleet, whatever, especially for the Sunrise regatta coming up soon the weekend of September 8--10. We'll probably bring Black Magic down to the Butte on Labor Day (Monday). Also, perhaps most important for crew members, what size t-shirt would you want for Sunrise Regatta t-shirts?
