Here is a fun story from fellow Woody Boaters At Smith Mountain Lake.
Youth Judging is a new activity for ACBS this year. Smith Mountain Lake was one of the first chapters to participate and by all measurable standards this new program was an unqualified success. The idea is to educate and train young boys and girls regarding the history, restoration and preservation of antique and classic boats. The program was developed and is sponsored by Hagerty Classic Boat Insurance. Each young judge was given a short brief on how to evaluate a boat, issued a special hat and shirt, and given a clipboard complete with judging sheets and guidelines. Then it was off to the docks to select their Best of Show as determined by the Youth Judges. Pictured above are 12 Youth Judges reviewing one of their candidates during the 19th Annual Smith Mountain Lake Antique and Classic Boat Show. The group was under the watchful eye of (L-R) Cindy Okeson, Sherie Rieth and Marilyn Cusumano.Photo by Ted Pratt Photography
