Ok gang, Any New England Area owners interested in attending this event? Here is a letter I received March 14th. Contact me at here, or at g3owners.com if your interested and I will help secure the rest of the info.
So far I have a firm commitment from one boater. We need 4 more for featured boat consideration.
g3jim,or (65g3) Tony, you both are at least a day travel time away from this event. Would either of you know of anyone close enough to attend?? Other than Ben he's is planning on going.

The Lake Champlain Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society is a ~120 member group made up of antique boat enthusiasts from New York and Vermont. We hold an annual boat show on the waterfront in Burlington, VT. - this year's show will be August 8th and 9th. Our show is timed to coincide with a larger waterfront event and if the past is any indication of the number of visitors we'll have in 2014 they will be in the thousands.
In 2014 we are inaugurating a "Featured Boat" dimension to the show to expand the types of boats that are customarily displayed as well as to encourage broader participation within ACBS and our chapter. We are reaching out to marquee boat clubs to see if a number of their members would enjoy joining us at our show.
In order to plan for and promote our program this year we would need the featured boat group to commit to bring a minimum of 5 boats to the show. In addition to having a great time over the course of the boat show weekend we are offering some attractive benefits:
•VIP status for attendees
•An award for the Best Featured Boat
•Free boat show registration
• Free membership to the Lake Champlain Chapter of the ACBS for one year
•Free parking for the tow vehicles and trailers
•Free slips at the Burlington waterfront
• Free ad in the directory and boat show program
•Assistance in securing lodging and making arrangements for the attending boats
•Fellowship of a most welcoming ACBS chapter
If the Glasspar G-3 community finds this invitation attractive and would like to discuss participation please let me know.

It looks like a strictly a New York, New England event. Chris may be right about a conflict with the Clayton 50th celebration this year. We do have g3 owners up there but have not heard from some of them for a while. I have had this event posted on the g3owners homepage forum for a couple of weeks. As we still have many g3 owners here I felt this would be a good place to post the event. It is definitely to far for Mid Atlantic g3 owners for sure.
