BOAT SHOW NOTES
by Scott Robinson 2014 – Boat Show Chairman
Hello Cutwater readers and members. Linda & I would like to invite all of you to attend the show this year. It is my second year as show chair, and as my pal, Don Minor said, “another 20 years and you will get it right”. But having said that I have received very positive feedback from last year’s show that was attended by hundreds of spectators.
I have all the necessary forms completed to allow us in Meredith for the day. We do not have a Marque Class this year, so I would like to invite all of the folks who own different-from-wood boats to attend. Please bring your classic fiberglass, metal, birch bark, and any other material that your boat was constructed with to the show. Remember, there is a non-wood classic boat class among the judging criteria…class “P”.
This year the Town of Meredith is having an event presented by The Greater Meredith Program called “Drop Anchor on Main Street”. It is the same night of our show from 6:00 pm to 9:00pm. It will feature many fun activities for the family. Please sign up for the show early this year so that our registrars, Barbara Kelly & Scott Hayes make sure you have a confirmed spot.
This year we have a special surprise. Christopher Reed of The Balvenie Scotch Distillery in Scotland is going to bring some of the company’s best scotch to the Friday afternoon social gathering. Also, from Scotland is David Laird the company’s ambassador to share with us some of his knowledge of whiskey and the country’s long heritage of distilling the finest whiskey in the world.
Last year the show was blessed with great weather, and we expect the same this year. The show was a great event and I had fun with all the folks who helped.
I would like to invite you to volunteer with me so that we can have a FUN, wonderful show this year. Please feel free to email or call me with any suggestions you have. It’s amazing what folks can come up with.
