Lake Charles Cruise
Aug 25 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Here’s the plan for Saturday. We’ll meet and launch from a private launch near David’s home at 531 River Road in downtown Lake Charles and get the boats launched between 9 and 10 AM. David lives in a tight knit community of waterfront homes on the Calcasieu River and his neighbors are excited about our arrival and will provide plenty of dock space for us.

Once launched, we’ll take a scenic cruise up the Calcasieu River to Sam Houston Jones State Park and then return for a poolside burgers and dogs cookout.. Be sure and bring your swimsuit so you can cool off in the pool. We’ll head back out after lunch and give the folks of Lake Charles a show, cruising by the Civic Center and then down to the Golden Nugget Beach.

If you want to come in Friday evening so that you’re well rested before boating on Saturday, David’s hosting a snacks and cocktail hour at 128 Bilbo St (near where we’ll be launching). There will also be secure space where you can park your boats overnight instead of the hotel parking lot.

If staying over Saturday night, David suggest Sunday morning breakfast brunch at the Blue Dog or Lunas. Both have excellent food.

NFACBS Returns to The Buffalo Launch Club, Grand Island NY for their 40th Show @ The Buffalo Launch Club
Sep 7 – Sep 9 all-day

NFACBS Returns to The Buffalo Launch Club, Grand Island NY for their 40th show!

As many shows have a “static nature”, this show looks to be “user friendly”, not just “dunk-in and tie up!” The Race Boats that were part of the event have moved to their own venue with “Thunder at The Outer Harbor summer event”. This frees up the waterway for boats to come and go as they please, taking people on rides to really enjoy the hobby! Of course, over 100 classic and antique automobiles will be there along with Fiberglassics and Go-Fast boats. There will be increased areas for static land displays and the nautical Flea Market. The DART BOAT CLUB of Ohio will be the featured boats for the show and a good number of Chris Craft Silverton Cruisers are expected.

Contact James Barrick – or (716) 909-9463 for more info.
