Fall Color Meet

Donuts & coffee in the AM, Pizza and pop for lunch. Rest rooms. Lots of inside space available, but plenty of room outside if you prefer.

Hello, Antique Outboard Club Members and Friends,

Time to get excited about the upcoming Fall Color Meet! The leaves are beginning to turn and there is a hint of fall in the air.

This year our meet will be held Saturday, October 7, 2017, at the Ozarks Auto Show in Hollister, MO. Like last year, the meet is co-sponsored by the Prop Spinners and the Twin Rivers chapters of AOMCI. So you know you are in good hands!

Plans are much like last year's in that the "Free Table" will be there, as well as the afternoon auction (Scott Brown has volunteered his talent as auctioneer.). We'll make room for you to sell your stuff, and buy some, too.

Food? Morning coffee and donuts will be followed by pizza and soda pop. We are also within walking distance to three restaurants, a cafeteria, and several fast food places!

The door prize this year is a 1948 Johnson TD-20, restored and very nice. All you have to do is register at the door and be there at auction time.

Speaking of prizes---Plaques will be presented to the winners five categories. We have added recognition for the motor that travels the fartherest to get here. Best of categories are Pre-war Restored, Pre-war Unrestored, Post-War restored and Post-War Unrestored.

We are looking for contributions to the free table so if you have any old parts, literature, or anything of value that is of no value to you, please bring it. Someone will want it. Also, don't forget the auction. It is your opportunity to sell something.

Also, this may be your last chance to see Mark's 1200+ antique outboard motors all in one place. (If we haven't sold them all!) (We won't be selling at the meet.)

Baymont Inn, where some of you stayed last year, gave us the same price as last year: $89. Their number is 417 334-1985. Request the Antique Outboard Motor Club rate.

Plan to spend a few days in the area. There are 160+ shows open in October as well as many dining and shopping facilities. Plan some vacation time during this time.

Find us on your GPS at 134 Industrial Park Drive, Hollister, MO 65672. We are just off of the Hwy 65 freeway at the only Hollister exit.

Thank you. Hope to see you October 7.
