Crowley's Yacht-a-palooza Report
Ed King and I drove down from Milwaukee for Yacht-a-palooza at Crowley's. We picked up former crew member Brad Boman who has moved to Chicago from Kansas City. He is still not back in Milwaukee where he would be useful but at least he is closer. My take is the Yacht-a-palooza suffers from the success of Strickly Sail. THe Strickly Sail show is such a big deal that Crowley's can't really compete. They had two great bands and some good pork sandwiches. That was fun. There was a very cold wind off the lake so that wasn't fun. Perhaps if we had known more people from the Chicago race crowd it would have been a better time.
