Workshop 2019

I encourage everyone to begin planning for the 2019 Workshop on Saturday February 9th. You can now register on-line for the event here on our website, as well as submit payment using a credit card or PayPal. This functionality is an effort that has been underway during the past year and should make it easier and faster to get registered and participate. Many thanks to George Reaves who manages the technical support for our website.

We have dates already calendared for our 2019 annual events; Hot Springs Classic, Classic Cruisin’ Table Rock Lake, and Mahogany and Chrome Classic Boat Show. Event dates and contacts can be found on the website Events page. As we get nearer to these event dates, updated information and on-line registration will be accessible.

Annual Report

Later in the month of December, I will be completing our annual report and chapter status to ACBS. Also, I will once again put together a report for all of our members, which will be emailed.

I look forward to seeing everyone at our workshop on February 9th, and then “on the water” for our first boating event in Hot Springs, Arkansas scheduled for April 3rd – 7th. Both events will be here before you know it.

See ya’ ll soon!
