Participants, Member and Friends,
The 2017 Payette Lakes Boat Show is almost here, and we can’t wait to see you! We have a full show with several boats that were not in the 2016 show. This year, we have some different wood boats, some great fiber-glassics and even a wooden sailboat!
Just a few details to communicate to you:
Registration – We have just a couple of spots left…contact us immediately if you want to join!
Launching – The boat ramp is downtown, as you enter McCall going North on Hiway 55, take a right hand turn a block before you get to the water on Railroad Ave. There will be signs directing you from there. If you are coming from the north on Hiway 55, make the right hand turn in the middle of downtown and look for Railroad Ave on your left. There will be help at the ramp from 10am to 1pm to get you unloaded so no need to stress about that! Our first activity is Friday at 2pm! See the updated show agenda by clicking here
Trailer parking – There is public parking for trailers in the marina parking lot. If that location fills up, we will have other options to advise you of upon arrival.
Mooring – We will have pre-assigned slips and can advise you of your location upon arrival. We have worked out the kinks over the last couple of years and think we have it working well now. Please moor in your assigned slip upon arrival. Thanks for your cooperation!
Registration Packet – Once you have docked at the Shore Lodge, find your way to the Ship Store to pick up your registration packet. It is located in the Lodge at the end of the dock (the right dock if you are looking from the water to the Lodge).
Banquet and dress – We hope you are joining us for the awards banquet dinner on Saturday night. While this is McCall and casual goes anytime, this is your opportunity for men to wear a sports coats and ladies to don their summer dresses if the mood strikes you. I have been known to wear a sport coat and ascot with flip-flops! If you can’t wear an ascot to a classic boat show, where can you wear it?! That said, if it is 90 degrees us there, I will be in short sleeves!
Bring your fun self – As my wife has said, leave work-self at work! The purpose of this event is to enjoy like-minded people for the quintessential McCall event! With all the little details, I am sure we missed something, somewhere. If that happens to affect you, please smile, be gracious and let us know – we will attempt to fix it if we can!
All the best and I will see you in about three weeks!
