Having been to many shows over the past 9 years of doing Woody Boater has made me somewhat burned out on boat shows by this point in the summer. At least the boat part, the people part is always amazing and is the fuel that keeps me going. There are countless folks I see maybe once or twice a year around the country, and it feels like yesterday. Which is exactly how yesterday felt here in Reedville.
The show was around 40 small classic boats, many I had seen before, and some new ones. We had some great folks come up from North Carolina, down from Baltimore and over from Richmond and Fredericksburg. This years Reedville show might be one of the best we have had here in years. The weather was flawlss, and the food sold out around 3 and the beer just kept flowing. Boats got sold that were for sale and rides were taken, and given. And again, the people part did not disappoint.
We met a bunch of you Woody Boaters. Alot of you as a matter of fact. Who knew there were so many in our little corner of the world. Heck I even met folks I went to high school with and someone in my neighborhood in DC that also has moved here. Not to mention keeping up with folks I sadly only see at other shows. But always have fun! See. It was a perfect day! And ended with a great steak with my family and no long drive home.
