Our 38th Annual Sunnyland Antique and Classic Boat Festival
Registration Is Now Open
BOAT FESTIVAL UP DATE
FEB 4, 2019
NO MORE DOOM AND GLOOM AND NO MORE CLOUDY SKIES!!!!
THE PATH FORWARD IS BLUE SKIES AND WATER DOCKS!!!!
Last week the City of Tavares stepped up and solved the Dock issues. They contracted with a company out of Monett, Missouri named EZ Dock Inc. for 70 floating slips. 35 of the slips will accommodate boats less than 20 feet and 35 of the slips will accommodate boats up to 26 feet. This is a major accomplishment for the Sunnyland Chapter. Our registration is up and running and we are anticipating another great fun event.
Since this is an Antique and Classic Boat Show we will obviously fill all the slips with Classic Boats. We will let you know when the water docks are filled and if you don’t get a slip, you have an option to be on Land Display. Either way, plan on attending and come and enjoy the Friendship and Comradery that has made the Sunnyland Show such a success. For most of us, it’s like “Home Coming”, a place to bask in the sun, re-new old friendships and talk about Boats!!
Just a reminder that ACBS will be present in force and will conduct their quarterly Board Meeting on Thursday Mar 21 at the Mission Inn. We have a block of rooms set aside at the Mission Inn and there are plenty of Hotels in the area. Also on Thursday night the City of Tavares will welcome everyone for a reception at the City Pavilion on site and will update you on the future of the Marina.
We have planned an exciting ACBS Symposium this year and have teamed up with the new Florida Vintage Race Boat Club (FVRC). We have a great line-up of legends from racings past that will speak to us on their racing days and their Race Boats. In addition, The FVRC will conduct their event a week prior to our show (Mar 15-16-17, 2019)
Both the South Bound and North bound River Cruises are starting to fill up and all indications are that we will have another outstanding event.
Friday night at the Captains Party, everyone is encouraged to wear a Beach Shirt and enjoy the Beach Music from the Caribbean Chillers.
When you add up the FVRC event—The North and South Bound River Cruises and all the Sunnyland Events, you are in store for another great show.
All the show events and information is on the homepage of our website.
We will keep you informed and as we get closer to the show. We certainly look forward to seeing all of you in Sunny Florida—-The for-cast is for Sun—Fun—Docks and Boats,—SO COME ON DOWN. YOU’LL HAVE A GREAT TIME. I GUARANTEE IT!!!
