Regarding the NARAM site, suggesting Joomla is a fine idea, but there's still a learning curve to it.
Remember, the club hosting the event is full of volunteers, and they already have a lot of work to do. I'm sure they're doing the best job they can.
'tis a lot of why I offer to host forums here on TRF for events such as LDRS and NARAM -- it's one less thing the host club has to worry about.
A few thoughts.
1) NARAM is only 2.5 hrs from me! Sweet!
2) The website needs some help, it's just a revamp of the NARAM 49 site, as linked to by the capsule graphic up top from any page but the main page.
4) I can volunteer some web design help.
Here's a suggestion.
Better? Should I submit to SMASH?

SS Spartan when I was a kid back in the sixties. That's part of the reason why I want to take a ferry again... My parents took me when I was a kid, now I want to take my kids.
As I recall the Badger/Spartan hits a top speed of about 15 knots. Crossing from Milwaukee used to take about 5-6 hours, but I think the trip from Manitowoc is a bit shorter.

I'm wondering if the "Swamp Gas" Night Launch is Class 1 only, or if it holds the same waiver, etc. as the daytime activities????
I'll get on M-46 at M-47 and avoid the "War Zone." May only attend one weekend though.
Bang-Bang Shoot 'Em Up Destiny! Bang-Bang Shoot 'Em Up To The Moon! Bang-Bang Shoot 'Em Up 1-2-3!
Activities on the first weekend (Fri 7/27-Sun 7/29) are pretty laid back, just informal fun flying mostly. Although the Saturday night launch and the Sunday Mercury-Atlas launch should be must-see events.
