The 7th Whitefish Woody Weekend took place in Whitefish Montana on the last weekend in June. It was a very WET woody weekend. High winds and lots of rain came through Friday evening to moisten things up for the main event on Saturday. This hearty group of boaters didn’t bat an eye at the weather. They just put on their rain coats, pulled out their umbrellas and made it happen.

As it turns out, with the right people a boat show can still be a lot of fun regardless of the weather. The unofficial report I heard said that we had over 700 people walking the docks to see our beautiful boats. Not bad considering it was very clear that it would be a wet day. But the boat owners still hung out, gave rides and mingled with the public. Another very well run boat show.

On Sunday the clouds broke and we had a fun Poker Run followed by an excellent BBQ lunch where awards were given out. This is not a judged event so the mood is always light and the folks always ready for fun.
