May 21-22, 2016 Grosse Pointe Shores, MI

Grosse Pointe Yacht Club, 788 Lake Shore Rd. at the end of Vernier Road, Grosse Pointe Shores, MI 48236
Grosse Pointe Yacht Club Invitational
Informal

The AOMCI represented by the Great Lake Chapter has been invited to participate in the 28th Annual Great Lakes Boating Festival at the GPYC in Grosse Pointe Shores. The festival is a prestigious event that kicks-off the busy Great Lakes boating season. In addition to new boats and yachts of all sizes on display in the harbor there will be several static displays of classic boats, automobiles and even motorcycles. We have been invited to display our antique and classic outboards and boats. The Yacht Club will provide us with full sided canopies for our motor display in a prime location on the club grounds. Boats will be adjacent in an open area. The festival is actually a three day event beginning at noon on Friday, however our display will primarily be on Saturday; show time is Noon to 7PM for the public. The noon start affords us plenty of time to set-up on Saturday morning. You are not expected to remain "on post" for the full seven hours, there will be other club members that can be there if you need to take a break, have lunch in the club dining room or just go check-out one of the yachts afloat in the harbor. As for Sunday, I hope that we can leave at least a portion of our display up for the day on Sunday. Sunday hours are Noon to 5PM. There should be no concern about leaving a motor overnight as the Yacht Club grounds are securely gated and that there is 24 hour security present. Because the display area will be busy with visitors, unloading and set-up must be completed prior to noon. After unloading, vehicles will be parked in a secure lot near our display area. This event is a great opportunity to showcase our club as well as your original or restored outboards at a unique public venue where they will be appreciated by an enthusiastic boating public. The event is open to the public with free admission, so even if you do not participate in our display come on out and enjoy the festivities. NOTE - Because the display space is limited, PLEASE CONTACT Joe Brincat if you would like to participate so that we can ensure that you have a space for your motors or boats. For more information contact Joe Brincat or Jeff Bahr. Information on the Boating Festival can be found at www.greatlakesboatingfestival.com

10th Annual Gruender Lake Meet
Display

10th annual Gruender Lake Meet and 3 hp race. There is room to display or sell. This is a small lake with a concrete boat ramp. Any size boat is welcome, but you can't go fast very long. We will have 2 races. First is a timed event, run one boat at a time for stock motors that are under 4 HP. Plaques for the first 3 places. Second is a match race of any motor that started as less than 4 HP, any modifications allowed. 1 plaque for the winner. This race has gotten quite interesting. We take the time from the first race, or a qualifying run if you didn't participate in the first race, then start 2 boats at staggered times, so that if they both run the same as their qualifying run, they'll cross the finish line at exactly the same time. A rowboat motor has just as good a chance as a 3.9 modified. In this extreme example the rowboat motor may complete several laps before the 3.9 gets to start. Then it's a race to the finish. It's very exciting, and yes, the little ones often win! If you bring a motor and no boat, there will be several available to use. Food will be served, there are several full hookups available for RVs, space for camping is available, either outside or in the air conditioned shop. It's a private lake, catch and release fishing is allowed, no license required. Come a day early and relax, stay a day longer if you like. We always have fun.

Constantine INTERNATIONAL Super Meet
Formal/Wet/Swap/Display

This meet is the BIG ONE. Jointly sponsored by the Great Lakes and MOB Chapters. This year we are honored by being designated an INTERNATIONAL MEET. We are celebrating both the 50th anniversary of the "Antique Outboarder" magazine and the 20th year for the Constantine meet. Come join in three days of outboard fun on the St. Joe River. Large swap and sell area, formal boat and motor display. Lots of "water time" for all your boats and motors, "Putt- putts" to "go-fast". The Constantine Cup Fishing Motor event will be held on Friday at 4 PM. The motor type for competing in this year's event will be 3 HP or less, pre 1950 stock motors, direct drive (no gear shift or neutral). The feature motor this year will be, Your Favorite Outboard Motor THAT HAS A STORY! So, bring any motor that you like and be prepared to share it's story; how you acquired it, fixed it, restored it, etc. Also, do you have a classic Johnson outboard that has a serial number very closest to the legendary 1,000,000th Johnson? If so bring it out, let's see who has the motor with the closest serial number motor. As in the past the Legion will be offering food each day at a nominal cost. Camping space on site is limited so it's first come, first served. The gates open at 6AM Friday, July 8th. Absolutely no one will be allowed on site prior to 6am! Super Meet registration is $10 per family (i.e. you and your immediate household). ADVANCE REGRISTRATIONS, received prior to June 14th will be rewarded with a commemorative plaque. The always popular hog roast will again be held Friday evening and open to all attendees. The Saturday evening awards banquet is always a popular event so reserve your seats early; cost is $10 per person. Registration forms and complete meet information packages will be available at upcoming MOB and GLC meets. In addition to the meet registration form, this year you can download the complete Meet Information Package at the AOMCI "Upcoming Events" page, and the Great Lakes Chapter web site, just click on the link.

If a test tank is available, we will have running motors making smoke during the day. Swap and sell items are encouraged, but must adhere to the "Rowboat Motors Only" theme of the event.

Hope to see you there.

23rd Annual Houston Swap Meet
Informal

This three day swap meet hosted by long-time member, Louis Rothermel, opens at 9:00AM and closes at 6:00PM each day. This will be the 23rd year that Louis has sponsored this event. Friday morning is primarily for setup, but some dealing starts early. Members arrive at various times throughout the day on Friday. At some point near noon, Louis will order in some local hamburgers for those who want one. At the end of the day, some members usually visit the nearby Jax Grill for dinner and beverages. Saturday is the heart of the meet with swapping starting early. Coffee and donuts are provided upon arrival. An excellent Bar-B-Q lunch will be cartered in around 1:00PM for a $10 per person fee for all you can eat. A business meeting will ensue after lunch. The remainder of the day is for swapping, repairing, or running your motors in the test tank. Most trading has been completed by the end of Saturday. Sunday is mostly a work day for those wishing to take advantage of Louis' shop which includes a lathe, parts washer, bead blaster, drill press, and torch equipment. We usually have several experienced members on duty to help with those stubborn problems. Lunch is usually the remaining Bar-B-Que from Saturday's feast. Swapping is usually light by Sunday and most time is spent visiting and working on motors. Please contact Louis for information on available hotels in the area if a room is deesired. There are several nice hotels within a short distance of the meet.
