Trent Severn Antique & Classic Boat Association
2014 Schedule of Events
Hi everyone, and welcome to the 2014 boating year. For returning members, you will find that we are offering a similar but interesting calendar of events. For new members joining us this year, we would like to welcome you to TSACBAand encourage you to take part in the activities. As in the past, our very popular “Free Runs” will continue thanks to the support from fellow members taking up the task of hosting them. The “Free Runs” are no charge for members to attend, and you only need to look after your own expenses for ramp, locks etc.
Four of the runs this year are made possible by members stepping up to organize and host them. Thanks to Sean, Jeff, Bob and the Rhodes. For those of you who don't have a boat, we always encourage you to contact the organizers to “hitch a ride” with other club members.
As usual our “Shop Day” concept was brought about to divert some of the busy summer event traffic to the quieter winter months. It is also in place to support our long range plan of introducing and encouraging future members to the hobby of boat restoration and building. Shop Day is another free event similar to our boat runs.Members will gather at another member's shop to view and chat about their current winter project, ask advice or just socialize. This is a great opportunity to show your kids what can be done in a real”hands on” situation rather than by simply reviewing internet sites! If there is an event you want to attend we encourage you to register by contacting as soon as possible to ensure yourself a spot.
More information and details will be coming soon, as each of the events get closer and don’t forget participation in our events not only strengthens the club, but it also opens doors to many recreational and social activities. There is no better way to see old friends and meet new people than to take part in the TSACBA events. You may even find another boat to buy!
