List of Presenters:

.

Mick Griffin - One of our “elder” statesmen of the club, Mick will get us up to date on all the new judging changes that ACBS had approved at their summer meeting in St. Michaels, MD. Some of the changes involve new point values with respect to the different boat categories. There have also been changes in the “preserved” vs. “restored” boats.

.

Ryan Sherwood - Ryan is a representative from Thruway Hardwood and

Plywood Corp on Anderson Rd. in Cheektowaga. He will go through what his company can provide in the way of hardwoods and marine plywood that we are always looking for during the restoration process. Always great to have a new supplier as presenter.

.

Margaret Szczepaniec - Margaret, Chairwoman of the Black Rock Canal Steering Committee, will present plans for the redevelopment of the Niagara River boat launch and surrounding areas @ the foot Of Ontario St. Public access to our WNY waterways is always an important issue for boaters. Questions and answers following her presentation.

 .

Alan Frederick - Now that you have that waterline scribed on your side planking with the laser level you got for Christmas, how do we get those crisp and sharp lines painted in place? No need to bring those 3-D glasses, the mystery will be solved at the Maritime Center. Another long time member of your club, Alan is also sneaking up on the “elder” statesman status.
