The chapter tried a few new categories this year, people really enjoyed them! Herewith a review of the new classes and the winners from all our formal categories.
Best Educational Display
This class has been created to further education, learning and the communication of ideas pertaining to the old outboard hobby. The guidelines will be kept purposely broad but could include; accessories, parts, outboard boating related equipment or a mounted display of photographs. Points are awarded based on the educational aspects of the display followed by creativity and the presentation. (Any collection of motors in this class must have a clear cohesive theme that adheres to these guidelines.)
Boat & Motor
The winners in the established Yankee Chapter award categories are as follows:
Running the Yankee Chapter is a lot of work. Without the help and assistance of many individuals the job would be overwhelming. Putting this meet together was a big job but it paid off handsomely and a good time was had by all. The meet would not have been such a success without the help of a number of members - a big thank you to the following:
Michael S. - Michael made our new sign and banner. He also let us use his tent and volunteered for the very important and time consuming role of Judging Coordinator.
R. C. - A tireless helper who worked for months beforehand to help plan the award classes and how the judging should be structured. R.C. also donated several nifty old race prizes for the "My First Outboard" theme. R.C's expertise was also evident in his role as judge for our formal awards.
Walt & Maureen L. - Walt was chapter President when I joined the club 10 years ago and has been a role model and helped with the many questions I had upon taking over this year. Maureen worked the sign in booth and really helped keep things organized.
Jim M. - Jim has the unenviable job of coordinating all the Yankee Chapter events and getting that information to our chapter newsletter The Knuckle Knews and to the Outboarder Newsletter. This is a monumental and almost thankless task - I say almost thankless because I want to take the time to say THANK YOU now! Jim also contributed the excellent article on Elgins for our Featured Outboard on our homepage.
Debbie C. - Our treasurer and keeper of all things financial relating to the chapter. This is another thankless job but one that is critical to keeping us firing on all our cylinders. THANKS DEBBIE!!!
Garry M. - Another former Yankee Chapter President, Garry sent me a load of information on how the categories should be organized and judged. He also has provided content for this website and offered answers to my many questions.
Tom M., Kevin S - Each gave up part of their day to help with the judging for the formal awards. Their knowledge and expertise along with RC and Michael gave us a top notch team for deciding the finest motors in each class.
Abby S. - Wives are not usually volunteers but drafted into the job of helping. I can't thank my wife enough for all the help and support before, during and after the meet. Thanks hon!!!!
