    I've asked that same question myself many times over the years when email has gone unanswered. I was assured a year or so ago that there is a real person whose name is Terry Moore-Reed. I don't know if he (or she) is still the webmaster.

    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.

    3) Frames?

    4) I can volunteer some web design help.

    Here's a suggestion.

    Better? Should I submit to SMASH?

    And no turns! it's just off M-46!

    Me I'm another hour further away on the very east end of M-46.

    Still...no turns. Except through Saginaw...the road gets kind twisty in that city.

    Much nicer.

    Yes, you should submit it to them.
    If they don't like it, I'll use it on fakenaram, the site I'm using to build a NARAM website template.

    I've thought about attending my first NARAM this year and going this route. Sure beats going around Chicago. But don't you guys have E.C.O.F going on the first weekend of NARAM?

    Me three! I'm looking to attend, planning on taking the S.S. Badger across. http://www.ssbadger.com/home.aspx. I've lived in Manitowoc nearly my entire life, but haven't taken the old ship across, I figure this is the perfect excuse! Granted, that hot rod that Chad is riding across is a bit faster!

    Since the family and I are just sport flyers, we have been thinking of doing ECOF at Bong Saturday and Sunday, then spending a few "vacation days" to hit NARAM during the work week. It's a real tough choise. We would hate to miss ECOF, but there is a Saturday Night "swamp gas" nite launch at NARAM that we also want to attend.

    I have "sailed" on the Badgers's Sister ship - The 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.

    Scott; sweet! Looking up the Spartan, it appears it is still docked and remains dormant in Ludington. Indeed, the Badger crossing is right around 4 hours.

    Swamp Gas Night Launch

    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.

    Activities wrap up Friday afternoon (8/3), so there's really only one weekend involved.

    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.
