    Published on Dec 2, 2012 This is a 15 minute video of the September 2012 show held at the Buffalo Launch Club that was almost rained out for the first time in 35 years! The video attempts to capsulize what spectators and participants would experience at the Buffalo show sponsored by the Niagara Frontier Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society. The show is 3 days for participants which starts on Fridays with seminars and an evening welcome party. Saturday is the action day and is open to spectators. Antique boats are displayed and vintage race boats are run. Normally there is a car show but the rain chased them away this year. On Sunday morning we make a 22mile "fun run" around Grand Island. The route puts the mist of Niagara Falls in the background! For more show information visit our website at www.oldboatsbuffalo.org. The site contains boat show information and a list of other club activities. Rich DeGlopper

    To all, A video of the last session at Buffalo on Sept 8th. A little cantankerous on the start, a little too much air and not enough fuel. Thankfully we have a pop off installed on the intake manifold. Once started she ran quite well considering the short course and too high pitch prop. Jack did a marvelous job of driving. He too said she was a truck in the turns. We will be making several changes in the off season to make her better not the least of which is the seat. He does not like the beautiful Kirkey we have installed because it apparently tries to spit him out in the turns. Picky picky. Jay
