Framingham MA Meet - January 27th 2007
By Snow Miser
Seventy five souls braved the single digit temperatures to attend the meet at Edwards Church in Framingham. I think Bob and Louisa G got the long distance award coming up from PA, all the New England states were well represented and Joe & Barbara R. from NJ also made the trek. Lots of outboards, parts, tools and literature changed hands despite the cold. Inside the hall was warm and it was wonderful to come in, warm up, talk old outboards with friends and enjoy a nice hot cup of coffee.
I know of a '26 Caille 5 Speed, Caille Rowboat motor and a Lauson twin that changed hands - not your usual fair. Ken H. had several of his popular "dollar" bins that were full of goodies. I purchased an enormous pile of West Bend literature from Ken, great reading for the rest of the winter! Gary M. always finds a truck full of nice old iron to swap & sell, this meet was no exception.
Lois M., Louisa G., Barbara R. and Maureen L. worked tirelessly to prepare the hot chili and sausage & peppers for everyone, it was delicious!
Thanks to Ron and Lois M. for holding this great meet!
A really big thanks to Norm D. and host Ron M. who saved my bacon and provided the photos below. (I forgot my camera!)
