Lake Lotawana Rendezvous Trois @ Marina Grog and Galley (Lake Lotawana, Missouri)
Oct 4 – Oct 5 all-day

Lake Lotawana Rendezvous is now an autumn tradition held on Lake Lotawana, primarily centered at the docks of the Marina Grog and Galley.  In addition to the Lake Lotawana classic boats, several guest boats and their guardians from the Heartland Classics Chapter are invited to participate.

Lake Lotawana Rendezvous Trois 
will be held October 4-5, 2019.

Lake Lotawana is a small city on the southeastern corner of Kansas City, Missouri.  The inhabitants surround a beautiful lake named Lake Lotawana.

In 2016, several residents with classic wooden boats began to get together socially and the gathering of a few classic boats attracted interest from others who already had or desired to have classic watercraft on the lake.  From this group, the Lake Lotawana Wooden & Classic Boat Club was organized in 2017.  Many of the members joined ACBS and the Heartland Classics Chapter.

If you wish to participate in the Lake Lotawana Rendezvous Trois, contact one of these gentlemen:

POSTPONED - Adirondack Chapter Spring Workshop @ HackerCraft Boatworks

Join us at the Hacker Craft Boats production facility for a tour of the shop and discussion about the boats being built and restored. John Skinner will lead us and he is a wealth of knowledge.

The legacy is that of John L. Hacker (1877-1961), the preeminent naval architect of mahogany pleasure crafts of the last century, whose designs included some of the greatest mahogany boats ever built, with exotic names such as Pardon Me, Thunderbird, El Lagarto, Bootlegger, Peerless, Dolphin, Kitty Hawk, Belle Isle Bear Cats, My Sweetie, among others.

In the 1930’s, our celebrated boats were named “The Steinway of Runabouts,” and have exhilarated people around the world: Gold Cup racers, celebrities, royalty, captains of industry… and those who simply want the very best.
