Lorain Meet

WRC Guys & Gals. Come one, come all to enjoy a day of fun with old boats and outboards, playing on the water and venturing back to days of your youth ! We just came from a meeting with the Lorain Port Authorities regarding the meet Todd Mizen has put together for Saturday the 6th of September starting at 9:00 AM. We covered a lot of information which I will attempt to explain ! The area at Grumpy's Lunch ramp on the west side of the Black River is where the meet will be held. There is plenty of parking area, both for displaying of our motors and for vehicle trailer parking. Todd has arranged for a designated area under a pavilion that will have tables set up for people to sit at. There will also be a table set up with small boat kits for children to assemble. Todd has enlisted sponsorship of many of the surrounding business's to supply prizes for our water competition, the Chinese Raffle and the 50 - 50 auction. They will consist of three water events. This meet is open to the public so we expect a lot of people to stop by and visit and maybe even bring some old motors to swap sell or trade. So keep your eyes open and watch for the special deal ! The first will be obstacle corse that will consist of several floats anchored out along the edge of the river. The contestants will estimate how long they will take to pilot the boat from a starting point around the floats and back to the starting point. The operator will be timed, and the closest to their estimated time wins the prize. A boat with motor will be supplied for the competition. Closest to their estimated time wins the prize. The second competition will be " The Pull Off " ! This will consist of a boat secured to the dock with a line tied to a scale. The boat will be tied in such a manner that it cannot break free of the dock but will allow it to pull against the scale and get a measurement of how many pounds pull the motor will exert. Each contestant will supply their own motor up to and including 7 1/2 hp. The boat will be supplied. Highest pounds pulled wins the prize. The third competition will be the " Longest Running Motor " on a thimble of gas. This competition will consist of a barrel filled with water, the contestant will mount his motor in the barrel and be allowed to warm the motor up and adjust controls, the motor will be run out of gas and the fuel line removed from the carburetor. The measured test fuel supply will be attached to the carburetor and the motor will be started and set at the operators decided speed and run till it stops. Longest running motor wins the prize. Grumpy's boat launch will supply us with several docks to tie our boats up to and for those that do not have a boat to run their motors on they will have two boats available for anyone in the club to use. There will also be a raft that members can run motors on. There will be a table for the Chinese Raffle with buckets for people to bid on the different items donated. the Amherst Pit BBQ & Pub will have a tent set up for sandwich's, drinks and chips. Grumpy's will also have some food available. Or if you want to bring your own food, there will be tables available to eat at. The entire river is a no wake zone so if you want to go fast there are two areas out in the lake that you can run at high speed in. One is to the east of the break wall one to the west of the break wall, depending on weather conditions either could be a calmer area to run hi speed in ! Of course the lake outside the break-walls is always an option to go fast in. One other water event that we could partake in is a squirt gun water battle ~ Weather permitting i.e. that is, if it's warm enough ! So prepare to get wet ! This will be decided the day of the meet ! The Port Authorities Division of Watercraft has said they will be happy to give any boat owner an inspection during the day of the meet and if your boat has all the necessary safety gear you will be issued a sticker stating your vessel is in compliance. They also told us you would NOT be issued a citation if you don't have all necessary gear. If you use a Garmin or other device to get you to the meet, you can use this address to enter in it. " 1405 east 14th street Lorain Ohio 44052 " 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. Turn right going east and follow the signs to the launch area where you will see our club set up. From the west, take Rt 2 east to the Middle Ridge Exit and follow the above directions. Hope to see you there ! Keep the blue smoke flowing ! Gary

There will be no open swap and sell at this meet as this activity is not allowed in the State Recreation area. There is a nice picnic area near complete with a shelter and rest rooms. We will be doing something special for lunch this time. Hot dogs and burgers will be provided; we ask that you just bring a dish to share.

Indian Well/Shelton Formal Meet

The Yankee Chapter Formal Meet will once again be at Indian Well State Park in Shelton CT. This year’s theme, by popular demand, celebrates Row Boat Motors and Ruddertwins. There will be formal awards presented for 6 categories for the motors on display in the Award Area. The meet officially starts when the park opens at 8:30 and runs until 3:00PM. (or sunset!) Most importantly, we want to do a cruise and have as many running examples of RBMs and Ruddertwins as possible out on the river – they don’t have to look pretty, they just need to run. This gives everyone almost 3 weeks to dust off their RBMs and Ruddertwins, charge the battery (if applicable) make sure the fuel system is clean and do what it takes to get their motors running! We currently have commitments from 15 individuals for running motors on the cruise; it would be great to see 25 (or more!) motors out on the Housatonic and try to set a 21st century record for the most running at one time and place! Don’t have a RBM or Ruddertwin then bring your oldest motor to run and share with everyone. Have a RBM or Ruddertwin and no boat, reach out to me and I’ll see if we can get an extra boat or loaner for the day. And if you would like to try running a RBM for the first time, let me know and I can arrange for you to get hands-on experience with someone at the meet. The Yankee Chapter is serious about making a lot of waves with RBMs and Ruddertwins at this year’s meet!! Link to the Yankee Chapter site page on the meet with directions: Click HERE for directions
