Trent Severn Antique & Classic Boat Association
2016 Schedule of Events
Hi everyone, and welcome to the 2016 boating year. For returning members, you will find that we are offering an interesting calendar of events. Be sure to watch this page for full information prior to each event taking place.
For new members joining us this year, we would like to welcome you to TSACBA and encourage you to take part in the activities listed below. 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 when boating is involved.
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!
Following is the list of planned events for 2016. As each event approaches more information will be provided.
- August 13-14

August is fast approaching. I hope you are having a great summer on the water! The next event on our fridge magnet is the Port Carling Boat Show and Potluck with Doug and Kathy Potts in Penetanguishene. The plan is to meet in Port Carling on the morning of August 13, 2016. The boat show runs from 10 a.m. until 4p.m. and has no admission fee. Following the show we are invited to the home of Doug and Kathy Potts at 237 Church Street, Penetanguishene, for a potluck in the afternoon / evening. For those interested in the Miss Midland Cruise on Sunday August 14, 2016, it departs at 11:30 a.m. and returns at 1:30 p.m.
Come for the day Saturday or Sunday, or join us for the weekend. Several members have already booked their reservations at the Best Western in Midland for the weekend.
Please confirm by your intention to join us. I hope to see you there.

- August 22 -25 - Rideau Lakes Run
This event is planned as a four day tour on the Rideau Canal system. It is an area where I have gone boating several times in the past and have thoroughly enjoyed. The week begins on Monday August 22, 2016 with a rendezvous at the Marina in Portland, Ontario. The marina has a wide ramp, is an excellent place to launch and there is amble street parking for the week located throughout out the Town.
After launching there is a short cruise, one lock then on to the Town of Westport. Accommodation will be reserved at The Cove which has dock space available for us on the property. Tuesday, August 23, 2016 will be spent cruising north on the Rideau up to Smith’s Falls for lunch, returning to Westport for dinner. Wednesday August 24, 2016 we will cruise south to The Opinicon for lunch followed by a leisurely cruise back to the Cove. Thursday August 25, 2016 is check out day with the short cruise back to Portland for haul out.
Your cost for the weekend will include ramp fees, lock passes for the 4 days, accommodation and food. An estimate of the costs will be provided once accommodation has been secured. The event is limited to 10 boats and 20 people on a fist come, first served basis. In order to make the required reservations we need to know who will be joining us. Please e-mail with any questions you might have and to confirm attendance.
Hope to see you there! Jeff Souch, President, TSACBA
