I got this wonderful note from Scott Turner from AristoCraft Boats yesterday and it was a wonderful reminder of why we do what we do. The Turners are amazing people and family. Yes, they are not sponsors, but we support them 100%, Gail Turner is a former ACBS President and one of the kindest person I know in the hobby. I wish I could be at the Lake Chatuge Show, its a stunning location, with warm weather and most importantly warm people! Thanks Scott for the wonderful photos and thought. MORE KIDS!
What an awesome week! I don’t even have to watch Jerry Springer anymore, just go to WoodyBoater.com!!!
Hope all is well with you and the family. Just thought I’d drop you a quick note. As I was going through pictures the other day I kept stopping and looking at how much the kids love the boating culture!
Man if we could all enjoy boating as much as they do, we all might be able to learn something. The joy of watching kids drive a boat, and learn about what makes it tick has become the best part of boating to my family. Just the other day, Owen drove us home from dinner in our Nineteen and Jenna and I just sat in the back and enjoyed the ride.
There are so many great opportunities for fellow WoodyBoaters to get involved in introducing kids to this awesome adventure as well. Next week we have our annual cardboard boat race at the Lake Chatuge boat show.
We do a model sailboat building adventure with the scouts and at the kids school. And fishing! Oh man take the kids fishing! Being involved in the kids lives and showing them the ropes of boating makes summer worth it.
Have a great summer and happy boating!
Get the kids out there! Summer will be over in the blink of an eye. And remember, its okay to be a kid no matter how old you are in Woodyboaterville. I for one am turning 12 this year according to the Boatress. YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE LAKE CHATUGE SHOW HERE on the Blue Ridge ACBS Page.
