The Bilge Pump
Volume 2 Issue 8 September 2005
Our next meeting will be Thursday, September 15th at 7:30 p.m. Directions to our meeting location can be found on the website www.woodenboatassociation.com.
The WBA is on a roll now! Over the past three months weve had three great events - the most recent having been the 4th Annual Lewisville Lake Ride n Show. Much thanks to those skippers who put this years event together: Dick Peterson, Bob Van Guilder and Les Burton. We had 17 boats in the water on Saturday (which was fantastic), yet the highlight had to be having 10 woodies running across the lake Sunday morning. Believe me, heads were turning! Special thanks to those SWC ACBS members who made the pilgrimage from distant locales to join us.
Mark your calendars (and dont miss) our next club event: Monday October 10th - WBA at the State Fair of Texas. This is one of our clubs best venues and a great public relations opportunity. And since our boats will be displayed on trailers, project boats are encouraged!!
