Okanagan Rendezvous on Shuswap Lake on August 12th @ Shuswap Lake
Aug 12 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

The Okanagan Chapter of ACBS is having a Rendezvous on Shuswap Lake on August 12th!

This is a fun and casual event where we get a chance to get together for a visit, parade past waterfront homes on the lake (great exposure for the club) and have a nice lunch at a lakeside resort.

This is not just for Members, this is for anyone who wants to get out in their antique or classic boat, or who wants to ride along with others (we will organize people and boats if required).

Here is the plan:

·        Have you boats launched and meet at the Harrison’s Dock (across from Sicamous) at 10:00am

·        Parade our boats along the shores up to the Cinnemousun Narrows, and then down Shuswap Lake to Blind Bay

·        Eat Lunch at Finz Bar & Grill (

·        Boat back along the other shoreline to our starting points

We have reserved dock space at the restaurants for the boats; and the folks at Finz Resort are excited to have a mini boat show on their property!

Please RSVP if you are able to join us, and advise how many people you expect to bring along in your boats.

We are so excited to see everyone!

Mountainview Chapter’s 2017 Foliage Cruise @ Long Lake Marina
Oct 7 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

The Mountainview Chapter’s 2017 Foliage Cruise will be held on Saturday, October 7, 2017, beginning at 10:00 AM.

 It’s grown in popularity every year since its inception.   We have been offered free launching from Long Lake Marina as they have graciously offered in the past.  We will congregate there or in front of the Naples town docks and take a casual tour up lake stopping at the docks in Harrison.   There we will walk across the street to the Old Mill Tavern to dine off their fall menu.  

RSVP is required so we can give the Old Mill a headcount so they know how many to set up and plan for.  Also, if you have room in your boat for passengers and you are willing to take them, please let me know how many you are comfortable taking in case somebody needs a ride.  Please RSVP for this event by emailing us with the count in your party.  Trust me, you won’t want to miss this fantastic event.
