SML-Spring-Cruise-(2) by Nadine Breen

There are SEVEN events to choose from this weekend.

The Events Calendar on this website lists all events that have been submitted from chapters, marque clubs, museums, even community organizations.  All of the events feature vintage boats in one way or another.

The Events page looks like this image.  What can you do with it?

When you go to the Events page:

  •  If you want to add an event to the calendar, click on the blue button.
  • Clicking on the word “Categories” is an easy way to look for a specific chapter.
  • The next row of buttons lets you move on through the list – 
  • – OR clicking on the word “Agenda” will let you change it to a monthly calendar view.

Clicking on any one of the event titles will lead you to more details, contact information, and the specific location.

Example would be the Smith Mountain Lake Spring event which includes the “Happy Days” picture taken by Nadine Breen.

Look through the Events Calendar as you think about your travel plans.  Visiting a new lake or waterway is a great way to have fun with your boat, and best of all, meet ACBS members to add to your circle of friends.  Traveling to other chapter events also makes you an ambassador from your chapter.

What’s next?  Take pictures.  Email them to  Hopefully, you will include people’s names, locations, even the boat story that goes with the picture.

“Thank you” to George Blosser, the publicity chair for the SML Spring Boat Show, for sending pictures taken by Nadine Breen.  We’re looking forward to a full report on the event next week.

The boat “Happy Days” belongs to George and Joan Blosser who are members of Smith Mountain Lake Chapter of ACBS.  

Happy Days is a 1956 23΄ Chris-Craft Continental powered by its original MCL 175HP engine. The Blosser’s are the 5th owner of the boat having purchased her from a close friend in January of 2008. The entire boat has been professionally resorted and is an “all original boat” containing 98% of her original wood and hardware.  Happy Days is home ported on Smith Mountain Lake and can be seen cruising around the lake with Angel their yellow Labrador Retriever sitting proudly in the mid-seat.
