If there's interest, I'd be happy to schedule a group conference call
to discuss and maybe vote on a schedule. I know it sounds like a lot
of people, but I've seen it work. -Joe B.
:: So, if I am understanding you correctly, you are wanting
:: more events on the schedule so you can choose between
:: races that fit your schedule. I think by having the
:: "Class" series and the "LD/Fun" series (or whatever you
:: want to call them) there should be plenty of events to
:: choose from.
:: The idea for having less events is to get more boats on
:: the line. I think everyone will agree that having 20
:: boats to race against is far more fun than having 2. If
:: we make too many events on the schedule then I believe
:: we will get lower attendance overall. Just my opinion.
:: Since I am not the class commodore, I am just giving my
:: opinion. If someone wants to put together some sort of
:: schedule, they are more than welcome to do so. Bruzzone
:: has been talking up a storm about a LD/Fun series on
:: this message board and has received little to no
:: response from the class.
:: Remember, this is your class (all e27 owners) and it
:: will only be as good as the amount of effort that you
:: each put into it!

:: :: Personally the 2007 schedule was a huge disappointment
:: :: and with only six or 7 Regattas on the schedule it’s a
:: :: do or die approach for the fleet. It great to have 18
:: :: boats on the line but what’s available to those who's
:: :: schedule cannot accommodate these specific dates. PHRF…
:: :: Ugh!
:: :: I would like to see more events schedule that will allow
:: :: for some flexibility in everyone busy schedule and I do
:: :: not believe that less regattas will be better attended.
