The Southern New England Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society
Presents the 30th Annual Mahogany Memories Antique & Classic Boat Show
July 11-13, 2014
The show takes place at the Connecticut River Museum on the scenic and historic waters of the southern Connecticut River in the town of Essex which has been voted one of the 10 best towns in the country. The boat show has always been a showcase for antique and classic runabouts and this year will be no different.
Activities include a Friday night cookout, Saturday evening catered dinner with award ceremony, boating on the Connecticut River and an overall great time. Everyone is welcome to attend with or without a boat and all antique, classic and modern classic runabouts are welcome and encouraged to attend. Boat owners can choose to have their vessel judged to ACBS standards. Come and enjoy the beautiful scenery, stunning boats and great friendships!
We have decided to mix things up a little this year and find a way to get some of our boats away from the docks during the show so everyone can see them coming and going as well as maybe get a chance to go for a ride! We will have drawings throughout the day where show attendees or the members of the public can win a ride in a classic.
We would like to hear from a few boat owners willing to participate with us in offering up some boat rides during the show. If you are interested, please contact me and I can review the details with you.
If you have children or grandchildren in your family, then the Southern New England Chapter would like to invite them to become a “Youth Judge” and learn about boat judging at our July 12, 2014 show. We will gather those interested at 10:00 a.m. Saturday morning and pass out all of the required information to judge the boats. Lynn Dombroskas will be in charge of the children. We are able to accommodate 10 children. The “Youth Judging” awards will be presented at the award ceremony Saturday night. This will be a fun experience for the kids – so… come one and all and become a “Youth Judge”!
