Our next regatta is at CJ Strike. As usual, Set up Friday Night or Saturday Morning at the Air Force Ramp/North Idaho Power Camp Ground. Skippers meeting at 11, with racing at 12. There will be a little different setup with a battle of the sexes race thrown in at some point.
Come on out and enjoy the fun, comradery and the ever famous pot luck.
Last Regatta of the Year, Oct 11-12 at CJ Strike
As always, our last regatta of the season (Oct 11-12) will be the end-of-season blowout, with SISA providing the meat dish to go along with everyone's potluck offerings, but this time with a twist! Remember that 185 pound pig that we pit-roasted for the Luau in August? We have plenty of 1-gallon zip-lock bags of leftover pork, and the challenge is for you cooks out there to take a bag of meat and prepare your best pork creation for the 'Great Pig-Dish Throw-Down'! We've distributed some of the bags of frozen pork, but if you don't have one yet and want to give the throw-down a shot, contact JT More at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at: 869-3748 to arrange to get yours!
Idaho Invasive Species Announcement
In Idaho we are lucky to have waters that are relatively free from invasive species (there are some, but compared to some other states, our waters are still pristine). Dick Armstrong has forwarded this important update about the Idaho Invasive Species program. Please take the time to reveiw the information in this link and understand the implications.

KNOW THE RULES!
Do you know who has room at the mark? Do you know the right of way rules? SISA subscribes to US Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing 2013-2016 for all events. The Racing Rules of Sailing are published by the International Sailing Federation, the international authority for the sport (http://www.sailing.org/rrs) . One of the the most important functions of rules is safety as well as promoting good sportsmanship. If you have questions about sailing conduct on the water or just want to test your knowledge, we have a fun link for you. The link below has three levels of difficulty. In each one you are asked to respond to a particular situation on the water. After you answer, you are given an explanation of the correct response along with the applicable rule. Give it a try!
