12th Annual Madison Area Antique & Classic Boat Show

August 4th and August 5th 2017

You are invited to take part in the twelth annual, Madison Area Antique & Classic Boat Show. Christy’s Landing Restaurant will again be the site for the show on Saturday, August 5th.  This location is simply outstanding for the public to view these beautiful boats on Saturday.  On Friday, August 4th, we will host a boat tour of the Madison chain-of-lakes; including Lake Waubesa, Lake Monona, & Lake Mendota (weather permitting). The tour will break for lunch at the Edgewater Hotel overlooking Lake Mendota and the boat piers and includes a few excursions before heading back to Lake Waubesa. 

One of the most important aspects of this show is the majority of the proceeds will go to the Clean Lakes Alliance. This organization is dedicated to improving the lake quality within the Yahara Lakes’ watershed.  For 2016, our goal is to raise $5,000 from the public and area sponsors donations. 

Awards will be given in several categories including the Best Chris Craft, Best Century, Best Thompson, Best Inboard Motor Boat, Best Outboard Motor Boat, Best Non-Motorized Boat, Best Fiberglass Classic, and of course the “Best of Show”.  This will also include the public selecting the People’s Choice Award.  This year’s featured boat manufacturer is Thompson Boats.

Please return your registration form quickly, as we are limited to approximately 45 boat slips (entries accepted on a first-come-first-serve basis).  Also e-mail a brief history of your boat and a photograph (waltswoody@charter.net) to enhance our boat show program booklet, which will feature all the show participants’ boats. 

The accompanying Schedule of Events, Registration Form, and Map should help answer your questions. If you need additional information, please contact Mark Walters or Andy McCormick via e-mail or telephone (see below). Should you desire lodging, we list local hotels on the map. 

Thank you in advance for your interest and involvement.  We look forward to seeing you at the show!
