The city of Tomahawk has established a new vending/casual fee for sites at Sara Park during special events.

These sites will be available to rent from the city after registering with the AOMCI at 8:00am Wed. July 30, on a first come, first served basis. The city will be responsible for collecting camping, vending and boat launching fees. The Northwoods Chapter will still be asking ALL AOMCI members to register and pay $5 to sustain the meet. The Northwoods Chapter was able to secure a special site/vendor fee consideration for the Tomahawk Nationals. This fee is applicable from Wednesday-Saturday, July 30, 31, Aug. 1,2 ONLY. If you come early to secure your site, whether camping or not, you will be required to pay the city of Tomahawk $20 per night for each site you reserve. *Casual use constitutes using a site for such things as working on motors, setting up lawn chairs, taking a nap, having a picnic, etc.-pretty much anything but camping or vending.

So we will be scheduling some in the water competition events to go along with the prizes. We will also hold a best looking restored motor competition, A best original condition outboard and The most economical outboard or longest running on a thimble of gas. The Port Authorities Launch is on the Black river and has some nice areas to boat on. They also have a covered pavilion where we can do lunch, and a large area for a swap meet ! Todd has a friend that has a food trailer that might be able to supply some good sandwich's. There are still a few more details to be worked out on the whole thing but it is coming together nicely ! I will update with more information as we get closer to the time of the meet. Directions to the meet are as follows. From the east take Rt 90 west to the Rt 2 & 90 split, follow Rt 2 west to the Middle Ridge Rd exit. Take Middle Ridge north (it turns into Broadway) about 3 1/2 miles to the 14th street exit.
