ARE YOU “SONS OF VARNISH” CHAPTER WORTHY?
Here is the big announcement we have been working on for some time. A huge thanks to Steve Bunda for the idea and the official first Chapter Of The Sons Of varnish. WISCONSIN CHAPTER. We are now going to open Sons of varnish Chapters across the planet. For FREE…ish. No dues, no board meetings, just do what ya gotta do.
So you ask? How in the heck does this work. Glad you asked. It’s getting worked out. If you want to start a chapter in your area, you raise your hand…s and say I want a Chapter. We will need around 20 or so to start the chapter. It will make sense in a second.
We will make a limited number of Sons Of Varnish t-shirts. With your Chapter location. The first person will get one for free. On us. Then, that first person buys one for a person they want in the chapter and give it to them. Free. And then they pass that on. This way no one pays to belong, you are gifted it. Invited. You shouldn’t have to pay your chapter to belong. This way you are all Brothers and Sisters of the Varnish. Your shirt with your location, will be your membership. Wear it proudly, and often. We are planning on some other swag that will compliment your Chapter once its large enough.
We will have a special page here on WoodyBoater to see updates and any SONS OF VARNISH events. Please. Facebook can rot in hell. So keep it here. SONS OF VARNISH ® is Trademarked and Copyrighted to protect us all. This will be fun and fair if we do it right..
Gatherings. that’s up to you. We will try and make it. And promote the living bejesus out of it.
Now go have fun. Let me know though our contact email. Matt@WoodyBoater.com if you are in. Please get a bunch of people to agree first so we can get it underway. This could be a tad overwhelming for just me. But could be cool. And may change around as we march forward.
I will have LAKE DORA chapter T’s For the Lake Dora Gang. I will give the first one to whom ever is the President of that Chapter. And they get one for the next person and so on. OR, because it’s Lake Dora, I may offer them as you go. Not sure unless someone from Lake Dora raises there hand and hangs out at the tent.
Are you one? Interested? Just want to kill some time and click on crap. WELL CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO.
A Maine chapter does not look promising.
Maybe an ANE (Atlantic North East) chapter would be possible, if we can all agree on the name.
I would think that Troy could have his own “Harem” chapter.
Scott I think we would need to re-name it the Daughters of Varnish.
See you in two weeks my friend!
What if no one invites you?
If you read the official rules it might mean you need to take a shower.
Only need 10 members according to this page, getting more promising.
So what about me?
Maine is all yours Troy! we can do a collect them all thing like Harley Shirts.

Can aId just buy 20 shirts and have a micro-chapter here on Long Island? I’m pretty good at multi tasking (President,VP, Secretary and Treasurer). Meetings would be easy. Or I can join Troy in Maine. Troy the water up there is not frozen when? August 15 to about the 18th?
Long Island is well within the ANE designation.
I wonder how the Winnipesaukee crowd would feel about ANE? Maybe Mark Mason will chime in.
As you email me I will add you to the Contact page on the Home page.
Troy – I am in with your ANE idea.
Just no group meetings right now please.
We should have enough for an Upstate NY chapter, but what do we call it and how do we frame it?
All of NY? That may steal from Troy and Long Island is really far away. Upstate, and include the River crowd, through the Finger Lakes to Buffalo and Chautauqua? Or just Western NY?
Isn’t everything north of the Tappen Zee Bridge considered Canada?
It’s the Mario Cuomo bridge now.
Neat idea. I see a glitch or two though….
1. Charlie Brown nailed one.
2. To quote Seinfeld…..”But I don’t wanna be a Pirate.” And I really would prefer not to be Shanghaied just to make the quota of 20….
There is an I in Team!
Yahoo! I never saw that before.
My day is made.
thats some funny shite right there!
Don’t think that black life jackets meet Coast Guard specs for visibility.
Make the Sons of Varnish lettering reflective
“Recognize the face?” At the helm of THUNDERBIRD, at the 2018 Lake Tahoe Concours held at Obexers Marina, Lake Tahoe, is PHILIP ANDREW!!!
Please leave the WoodyBoater banner, and put chapter name above it.
How about some more “Son’s of Varnish” Tee shirts in white. Black gets to hot in the summer sun, especially in Wyoming at 6000 ft. To close to the sun. I can come up with 4 members for a WY chapter – I may need a waiver for a special chapter!
What about Phil in New Zealand? Are there even 20 people in New Zealand?
If I live in Ohio, and keep my boat in New Zealand, can I be a member in both chapters?
So if I live in Ohio and keep a Constellation on Lake Erie and also keep a woody in New Zealand as well, can we be a member in both?
need to be careful with the rockers and the 1%er clubs.
