I've been looking at an application called "Group Valet" for setting up the attendance for OWFO races and perhaps as a crew bank.  If you register with this group you should get updates as to who is coming to each race.  Let me know if you need an invitation to this group.

Starting Friday September 27th, the race committee will start races at 6:00pm rather than 6:30 due to daylight.  If the registered competitors are not ready at 6pm, there might be a short practice race start (Race 99.)  The practice start is the same 5-4-1 start, after which all boats stand clear of all other competitors and return to the start line for the start of a full race.
