Good afternoon Fellow Members,

Led by  Committee chairs, Jim Barrick (909-9463), and Rocky Nagel (523-2143), planning efforts are well under way for our 40th  Antique and Classic Boat Show September 7th - September 9th.

We are looking forward to returning the tradition of sharing fellowship in the appreciation of antique and classic boats again this year to Buffalo Launch Club on Grand Island. This years featured boat is the Dart Boats of Toledo Ohio. (oldboatsbuffalo.org for more info.)

Our member participation has made each boat show an event to remember through generations! We would like to welcome members again to participate in continuing the tradition of hosting one of the biggest, and greatest ACBS boat shows!

Areas available for member participation include a wide variety of skills and talents- to meet all members' special qualities. In addition to behind the scenes preparations, options to assist under the direction of coordinating chairman on the days of the show, are short 1 hour, 2hour, or 3 hour blocks of time needed each day of the show.
