Schedule of Events


Welcome members to the 2019 boating season. Next event on the list is Wayne's World on May 25. We have a list of events for the year listed here so you can see what is coming up. Hopefully when we meet at Wayne's the ice will be gone in the lakes and our backyards.

See you soon, Murray Parnell

Mark the events you want to attend and be sure to sign up. As our list is confirmed more information will be posted on this web page as well as lots of information you may need about an event well ahead of it taking place.

May 25 Wayne’s World Annual Spring Workshop, Port Perry

The ice is out of the lakes in the Kawarthas and the next step is the Spring gathering at Wayne's World. This year we are going a little different direction to help promote the members to participate. We are doing a show and tell of member boats and motors that they have been working on. These can be done, partially done, or ready to be started. We have many interesting boats in the club that dont get to be seen so now is the chance to be seen and appreciated. We would like if anyone that has problems or questions on a project to ask the group and we can as a group steer you in the proper direction.

Ken Kirk and his group will be organizing a flea market bigger than ever and we will also have room for some boats for sale. OPBRA will also have a race boat or two on display and can answer any questions. Wayne and Ken have been adding to their amazing collections upstairs and downstairs for us to admire. Wayne and his volunteers will have the Tuscan Chef Wood Fired Pizza Oven fired up for those amazing pizzas.

Location is 17251 Island Road, Port Perry. Registration is $15 per person to cover morning coffee and donuts, noon pizza and drinks. Schedule for the day is as follows:
Coffee and donuts at 9:30 a.m.
Welcome and updates at 10:00 a.m.
Any talks or questions to follow. We will tour the boats on display giving a brief story on them and answer any questions. Once the chefs and the ovens are ready around noon we will have lunch. This format will give us lots of time to take in all displays, talk to many great members, and bring home some new treasures!

We are looking for boats for these events and they dont need to be race boats. People love to see all kinds of different antique and classic models of wood, aluminum and classic glass from the 50s to the 80s. If you have any questions or are interested in showing your boat at any of these events you can contact .

North Bay
The first event for our Association for 2019 was the display at the Toronto Sportsman ShowSportsman Show and to no surprise the Half and Half project boat was a huge hit with the large crowd of people that came to see us. Along with the Half and Half we had John Gullick's orange speed boat that also raised a few eye brows and a total of seven Vintage motors from John's and Murray's collections. Thanks to all the volunteers from TSACBA and MLAOC that made this event happen.
