Hello Bill and all well we did not find a pond yet still looking we have a few sites in mind
went to see one it was a great size but it would be to much work since the land needs alot
ok this is why we lost the pond at the end of our season one of our members fell into the pond
while getting our bouyes out the water was very cold and he could not make it back to shore,
we had to call 911 to come get him out after trying for a bit our slefs without success
and the member sufferd a mild heart attack from a mild hypothermia.
after this happend we did contact the land owner on the monday this happend on a saterday
we had to wait till that day since there business is only open week days.
and he was gald that we called and all was ok with him after speaking with him at that time.
ok now it was time to get the club re-registerd with IMPBA so i called him to get all the info and his ok to do so
and he told me that over the winter he had time to think about what went on and he changed his mind for us not to be able to use
the pond any longer for racing boats, also he told me that he did not want to take a chance of anything happening bad happening on his land.
even haveing the IMPBA insurence would not help the cause, also what i think did not help us is that it made the local news and he did not like that.
so this is why we are looking for a new home let's all hope we can find one soon since we still have time to save our club and the 2012 season.
