How did you spend your weekend?

Lake Arrowhead, California, is the premiere show of the year for the Southern California Chapter of ACBS.  It was a unique opportunity to boat on this private lake in “the Alps of Southern California”.

Half of the boats came early to enjoy a 76 mile round trip to lunch on Thursday.  Then Thursday evening through Sunday morning, the phrase Cruisin’ N Eatin’, and Eatin’ N Cruisin’ was the theme.  Table Rock Lake offers over 700 miles of shoreline with many beautiful side river channels to explore.  During a three-hour stay in-the-dock show on Saturday afternoon, the public was invited to enjoy rides, visit with owners, and little kids had boats to paint. 

The following video is part of a TV news broadcast created during the Friday excursions.  This really brought in the crowds to the mini boat show.  Click on the next picture to see the short news report: 

Near the East Coast, the Smith Mountain Lake Chapter hosted the ACBS Quarterly Board Meeting.

The SML Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society held their annual Spring Boat Show at Bridgewater Plaza last Saturday. The boats and their owners were on hand to answer questions and explain the history of their wooden boats. Over 20 members attended and 12 boats were on display. Prior to the show this year the officers and directors from the Antique and Classic Boat Society traveled to Smith Mountain Lake for their quarterly board meeting. This is the first time the 11 member team has held their meeting at SML. The Spring Boat Show is a preview of the chapter’s fall boat show which will be held at Mariners Landing on September 15, 2018.
