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.

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!

Check below for photos from the May 24, 2014 visit to the Keewatin and cruise of Georgian Bay on the Miss Midland. As well there is a link to photos from the the fiberglass class at the Antique and Classic Boat show at the Recreation and Performance Motor Show (RPM) in Havelock on July 18 to 20, 2014.

Lindsay Rib Fest Sunday August 17

***Please note this is a Sunday event.***

MMMMM - Ribs! The Lindsay Rib Fest organizing committee has invited the TSACBA to help with their 2014 event. They remembered the big impression the antique boats made during a stop in Lindsay on the High Water Summit Tour a few years ago. This year Rib Fest has a nautical theme with a poker run on Sturgeon Lake on Saturday and an antique boat show on Sunday August 17, featuring the TSACBA. Rib Fest has moved from the downtown area to parkland on the Scugog River across from the lock. The park, located at the top of the lock features new docks and boardwalk. A free public launch with new ramp, docking and parking is just around the bend on the River. The area features miles of walking trails to the North & South and is a short walk to picturesque downtown Lindsay with many shops and boutiques.

Come and help make Rib Fest Lindsay 2014 a success. We plan to have our boats on display from 10:00 AM until about 2:00 PM after which we will motor down the Scugug River. Bring your boat and bring your appetite. If you have never been to a Rib Fest, you don't know what you are missing.

Due to limited docking we only have room for 15 boats. If you would like to attend, please register early by responding to . There is no cost to register. Additional details will be sent out to those attending.

Tour of the SS Keewatin and Miss Midland Cruise, May 24, 2014

The SS Keewatin, built in 1907 and after a stay in Michigan, returned to Georgian Bay in 2012. The passenger liner once sailed between Port Arthur / Fort William (now Thunder Bay) on Lake Superior and Port McNicoll on Georgian Bay (Lake Huron) in Ontario, Canada.

Members of the Trent Severn Antique & Classic Boat Association gathered on the foredeck of the Keewatin.
