"The owner of the company where I work has offered me first choice on vacation time for 2006 but I must make my decisions by September 15 or forfeit that chance to someone else." Is anyone outside of Florida and Texas planning to host a North American Laser event of any sort in 2006? I went to the www.laser.org regatta schedule and found only two regattas for 2006. One is just down the street from my house and I will attend for sure. The other is more than a days drive from my home but if it is really the only other Laser regatta planned for 2006 I guess I must plan on going to it.
