Antique & Classic Boat Show this weekend

The Bass Lake Lions 24th annual Antique & Classic Boat Show will be held this Saturday, May 17, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Miller’s Landing in Bass Lake. This year’s show will feature more than 30 of the finest preserved and restored watercraft to be found on the West Coast.

The show is the annual rendezvous for the Southern and Northern California/Lake Tahoe chapters of the Antique & Classic Boat Society, and promises to be one of the largest of the season in California.

As a result of lower lake water level and a last-minute decision by the management of the Pines Marina not to allocate slips for the classic boats, the show will take place on the docks at Miller’s Landing on the south shore of Bass Lake.

Admission to view the boats is $5 per person, children under 10 are free. The proceeds go toward sight preservation and other community projects supported by the Bass Lake Lions, including a camp for sight and hearing-impaired children.

If you bring your old eyeglasses, cell phones and hearing aids for recycling, you will receive two free raffle tickets for the mega drawing.

Details: Jim Milligin, (559) 642-3420; or Ed Koehler, (559) 683-8220.
