Late Live-ish From Spring Valley Lake California
Fellow Woody Boater Maggi Cassell reports in from the West Coast reminding us all that the So Cal gang sure knows how to get the most out of Califorina’s counter clock wise lake life! Woohooo!
The ACBS Southern California chapter is holding our first event of the year, with an informal gathering at Spring Valley Lake in Victorville, CA, north of Los Angeles. It’s a private lake, and the home owner’s association and yacht club are very kindly hosting our wooden and classic glass boats this weekend.
This reporter forgot to count, but let’s say we had at least ten boats and thirty club members in attendance. The weather was cool and blustery, with occasional sun, but as long as you’re messing around in classic boats, what’s a little shivering between friends?
Spring Valley Lake is a 200 acre man-made water ski lake, surrounded by homes. We collected a few onlookers during our parades around the lake on Saturday afternoon.
The Dogs name is Chloe. Her full name is Chloe the wonder Dog. You know Dog spelled backwards is God. And we treat her like one, she is very spoiled.
We put together a little slide show of our club folks enjoying the brisk weather — including a couple more shots of Chloe the Wonder Dog (who is indeed the sweetest little dock dog).
Thanks to Maggie for this great article and pix!
I know Maggie took a lot of pix of this wonderful event, would love to see more, particularly Dave & Johns spectacular ’28/28′ Hacker Craft triple – “Reina” that made her on water debut. Excellent job Maggie!
