March 26-29, 2015 Tavares, FL.

Wooton Park on Lake Dora in the City of Tavares.
Lake Dora Antique and Classic Boat Show
Wet

Again, the Sunnyland Chapter of the A.C.B.S. has been gracious enough to invite A.O.M.C.I. members to participate in the Lake Dora Antique and Classic Boat Festival to be held March 27-29, 2015 at Wooton Park on Lake Dora in the City of Tavares, FL. This year we are going to do things a little different than in years past. To relieve the A.C.B.S. registration area of more congestion we are going to have a separate entrance, manned as best we can, on Disston Ave. Disston Ave. is the dead end side road at the east end of the park by our display area. We used this entrance once before and it now serves as the main entrance to the wedding chapel that is built over the water at the end of the road. There is no parking on this road but the plan is to drop off small boats on trailers or any motor displays on rolling carts to be wheeled into our area. If upon your arrival we are busy, you can unhook your trailer and it will be moved into position as volunteers from the Florida Chapter of the A.O.M.C.I. become available. This entrance will allow us to accommodate members from Friday until the closing on Sunday. It is the hope that people that canít stay for the entire weekend will participate for one or two days to reduce the overnight costs. Larger trailers or displays will not be able to use this side entrance path into the show and will be accommodated by A.C.B.S. tractors as time allows from another gate on Thursday and Sunday only. By large trailers we mean trailers that canít be rolled on grass by the owner and one volunteer. These folks will have to go through the normal registration area and ask to be sent to the east gate by the R/R tracks and train station close to our area. The larger trailers WILL need to be in place Thursday afternoon and REMAIN until Sunday. The cost for two wristbands (two people)for the weekend will be $20.00 with additional wristbands for children under 10 for an additional $5 each. One day passes for members, children over 10 or additional guests will be $10. each. Wrist bands will be mailed out in advance to reduce the confusion at the show. Boats in water are encouraged as the beach is clear and the docks close to our area will have room. There is a good ramp in the Dora Canal close by that we can use as the ramps at the show are closed. All members are encouraged to attend and this year we are being allowed to sell COMPETE, RUNNING motors. To sell boats, parts or other small items you must sign up with the A.C.B..S. in the vendor area. This is only fair to the other vendors that pay to participate in the show. If you have motors to sell or display they must be on rolling stands and be presented as a display at the show. Please donít expect the volunteers to lug heavy motors into the show. The idea is to allow us the freedom to act as this was an A.O.M.C.I. meet on its own to relieve the A.C.B.S. registration folks of having more to deal with so please understand what we are trying to accomplish. Information and advance registration form can obtained from Jim Dunn @ jdunn@ssmc.usjdunn@ssmc.us
