Just imagine … Mountains, endless sky, and clear water lakes as the setting for this Chapter’s events!

Big Sky Chapter of ACBS is located in Montana but draws members from all over the northwest for their two main events of the year.

Their first event held in June is titled Whitefish Woody Weekend.  This was the seventh year for the annual event which now is co-sponsored with the Lodge at Whitefish Lake.  This resort actually features pictures from the event on their website.

With 42 wooden boats on display, Whitefish Woody Weekend (WWW) spectators can closely appreciate the exquisite attention to detail on these gorgeous vessels. Woody boat owners are on hand to tell the story of their boat, be it a newly built masterpiece or fully restored antique.

The Big Sky Chapter will be holding their 13th Annual Big Sky Antique and Classic Boat Show August 3-5, 2018 at the Marina Cay Resort in Bigfork, Montana.
