2 more lessons learned. Pricing your event 100% higher than the competition and then having a 6 hour flash sale at 50% off two days before event did only two things. Ticked off the 1 existing competitor that registered early paying high price and didn't generate not even one additional competitor.
This will be an excellent event for FS, Optis and other dinghys. Next year they will not punish the Vipers with over priced entry fees. We all learned from this. Pontyc is a great venue that takes RC work very seriously and is very hospitable with kind members.
