 Vol XXIII  No. 19  August 21, 2018


The Oshkosh regatta Chairpersons had to change the caterer and have secured a new one they are 100% confident will provide for a terrific event.  Because of that some of the information has changed for lunches. 

They also modified the accommodations section to include some other choices since the Best Western is now sold out.  Our entire block of 60 rooms was used.  That is great news.  They are looking forward to, and prepared for, a whole lot of boats on the starting line.
