Yankee Chapter: Making Waves With Old Outboards

Yankee Chapter Formal Meet 2005 Indian Well State Park 9/10/2005

by Chapter President Art S.

A more perfect day of fun, friends and old outboards there never was! With record attendance, the formal meet at Indian Well was a huge success. This was the first time I am aware of the Yankee Chapter has had a themed event and the "My First Outboard" concept met with rave reviews. The idea was to bring the first outboard you ever owned (or a replacement if the original is no longer in your possession), and share photos or stories about it with other members. Almost 20 members brought their first outboards - Roger H. brought his first 3!! (Scroll down to see the group photo)

This year the number of formal awards grew to ten. Several new categories were: Oldest Running Motor, Best Boat & Motor and (my personal favorite) Best Educational Display. See The Award Winners
