    To versus Until

    I was just working on an ad. What is proper on a newpaper ad. The line that would read: 65 Days Until The Regatta or 65 Days To The Regatta. I thought the word "To" would be incorrect to use, but want to be sure. Thanks.

    Re: To versus Until

    I like "until" better also, but what about something a bit more catchy, like

    Regatta Countdown: Only 65 more days!
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
