The dinner and party were at the Blackwater Café in Moneta, Virginia. Chapter President Alan Frederick reviewed the year’s activities and presented a slate of officers for 2018. The Smith Mountain Lake ACBS Chapter currently has 87 members.

Chapter President’s Cup Award

Each year the International Antique and Classic Boat Society sponsors The President’s Cup award for each individual chapter. The award goes to the chapter member who has been recognized for his or her dedication and overall contribution to the chapter during the year. This year’s award was presented to John Torok who exemplified the highest level of interest, dedication, and commitment to the goals of the Chapter.
