36th Annual Antique & Classic Boat ShowPosted on July 19th, 2009 No comments
July 25th, Meredith Public Docks
The 36th annual Antique & Classic Boat Show at the Meredith public docks is a huge gathering of beautiful antique and classic wooden boats, with large crowds and over 80 vintage wooden boats on display all day in a judged competition. This is quite a sight to behold, and for a special treat get to the docks early on Saturday morning to watch and listen as the vintage boats arrive under their own power. There will also be a large static display of vintage race boats. The sights and sounds are magnificent, and to get an idea of the magnitude of this gathering of wooden boats, please take a moment to view our photo album from last year’s ACBS Meredith Boat Show.
This year’s 36th Annual Boat Show will be very special, featuring a very large showing of Gar Wood antique and classic boats, including an expanded display area of Gar Wood vintage race boats. Tony Mollica, author of Gar Wood Boats: Classics of a Golden Era, will also be our special guest at the Awards Dinner on Saturday night, and will give a talk on Gar Wood and his very special boats. He will also be available at the Boat Show to autograph copies of his several books. If you have one, bring it along. If you wish to buy one of his books, copies will be available for purchase.
For participants, don’t miss our Friday afternoon Judging Clinic and Friday evening reception, and plan on arriving early for our Boat Show on Saturday morning, as we are expecting another large turnout of antique and classic boats. As usual, the weather forecast for our 36th Annual Boat Show in Meredith will be sunny and hot, as we fill the Meredith public docks with our beautiful vintage boats.
The show is presented by the New England Chapter of the Antique & Classic Boat Society, a very active local group of over 300 members. Our boat show registration form is printed in our Cutwater publication, and a special registration mailing to all chapter members will soon be mailed. Please register early to help us plan for a gala event, hope to see you there ???!!! Visit the website to learn more: www.necacbs.org/MeredithBoatShow.htm
