2017 Pre-Events Day 2 @ Fox River, Oshkosh to Winneconne | Oshkosh | Wisconsin | United States

The 2017 ACBS Pre-Event Cruise starts here.

DAY 2-MONDAY SEPTEMBER 4, 2017 OSHKOSH

Get some breakfast (Ground Round restaurant at the hotel or nearby restaurant), then we’ll launch the boats early in the morning from Rainbow Park on the Fox River.  The park is a short drive from the hotel, on the “other side of the river”.  There is a large parking lot for vehicles and trailers.

There are municipal docks (first come, first serve) in front of the hotel.

Enjoy your Labor Day cruising the waters of the Fox River Valley in Oshkosh, a fun and exciting river town with lots of natural resources and boating history.  The city of Oshkosh, named for Menomonie Indian Chief Oshkosh, first was established as a fur trading center.  The fur trade was quickly diminished by the lumber industry.  The navigable waterways provided easy access for lumber companies to get their products to the markets.  Oshkosh was known as the “Sawdust Capital of the World”. 

Of course, there are a few breweries in town, too.  Around 1900 Oshkosh was home of the Oshkosh Brewing Company. Its Chief Oshkosh beer became a nationally distributed beer.  They coined the marketing slogan “By Gosh It’s Good.”  That’s what you’ll be saying as you cruise the waterways of the Fox River Valley and other lakes in the Wolf River Valley.  Explore the waters where Dunphy Boat Corp built runabouts from 1940 to 1965.  Enjoy the scenery with a box lunch while participating in a fun Poker Run that will guide you through some of the interesting sights of the waterways. We’ll have organized stops along the way for fuel, rest stop and poker card stop.

In the evening, we will meet Fox River Brewing restaurant to exchange stories of boating adventures over a buffet style dinner.  We’ll have awards for the best poker hand.  The restaurant has many docks out in front, participants are encouraged to drive their boats from the hotel to dinner.  Back to the hotel to rest-up for the next adventure!

Sep 5 all-day
2017 Pre-Events Day 3 Madison Lakes Cruise @ Madison Lakes Cruise | Madison | Wisconsin | United States

Tuesday is the day to cruise the Madison Lakes.

DAY 3-TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 5, 2017 MADISON

The home of the University of Wisconsin – Madison and the Wisconsin Badgers, and the Yahara Lake Chain.  The Yahara lake chain bisects the capital City of Madison and provides many miles of waterways.

We’ll start early with boat launching at 9 a.m. on Lake Waubesa.   We’ll gather at Christy’s Landing on Lake Waubesa where we’ll have coffee, juice and danishes available.  Then we’ll begin a spectacular boating excursion through Madison’s Yahara Lake Chain. ACBS members will cruise on three connected lakes (Waubesa, Monona, and Mendota) via a guided water tour that includes viewing some of Madison’s spectacular sites. Whether it is seeing the Madison skyline, cruising past the Wisconsin State Capitol, or enjoying a beverage at the University of Wisconsin Memorial Union Terrace, skippers and their crew will enjoy a full day on the water.

The tour includes passing through a unique lock system that lifts the boats to one of Wisconsin’s largest lakes. The lunch stop will be at UW Union Terrace-Sunset Deck/Tripp Commons Deck.  After lunch, we’ll take a break from boating, with tours of the UW venue (Porter Boathouse home of the UW rowing teams, Camp Randall Stadium), and Governor’s mansion.   

The day-long event culminates where we started at Christy’s Landing with its Tiki Bar and outdoor dining.  On the menu for dinner is Barbeque.   

Tuesday night hotel accommodations are at either the Country Inn or AmericInn, approximately 6 miles from Christy’s and the nearby boat launch.  Parking is available at both hotels.  Bright and early Wednesday morning we head east to the City of Milwaukee and Lake Michigan for more boating.

Mention “ACBS International Boat Show” to reserve room at either Madison hotel
