While most of you were at your boat shows, an even better thing happened in Woodyboaterville. We met a new citizen of Woody Boater! Bob ” Have I Got A Calendar For You” Kays reports in as Jack North takes a first ride and the rest is our history. THIS IS WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT.
Meet Jack North, a 9 yr old 5th generation resident of Halsey Island, Lake Hopatcong. He waved to us while out Tuesday for a sunset cruise. Jack loves Chris Crafts and knows where everyone on the lake is located. We arranged to meet Jack and his parents, John and Emily, at the Main Lake Market on Wednesday.
Once there they joined Bob and Pam Rice and Denise Kays and I for a lake tour in Bob’s 22′ Sportsman “Lieutenant “. Jack was a happy boy!
On Thursday Jack and his Dad met us on Raccoon Island for a ride in “Relax”. We ended our ride around the lake with a stop at Katz’s Marina, where Seth opened the showroom for Jack to see all the mahogany beauty inside.
Jack’s dad said his son would think about this all winter and look at all the pictures. That means Jack is a Woody Boater like all of us. And he has a calendar!
Thanks Bob for a fantastic story that reminds us all about the good in people, and Woody Boaters around the world.
