Triton Yacht Club Boat Show

The Triton Yacht Club and the Coots would like to invite you to attend
the 2018 Triton Boat Show at Fern Ridge, Saturday, July 14, at
Richardson Park, at the northwest corner of Fern Ridge Reservoir, 
northwest of Eugene, Oregon.

http://www.coots.org/mb/tritonbs/

The show is for interesting boats of all materials, sail, power, or
human powered. Triton will showcase the Thursday night racing fleets and
classic cruisers. Also on display will be the boats used for sailing
instruction through the City of Eugene and rental watercraft available
through Underway LLC. The Coots will be displaying our usual eclectic
mix of oddball boats.

The show starts at 10:00 AM Saturday morning and runs until about 5:00. 
There will be a potluck feed, or some other group dinner, sometime after
the show ends, and a moonlight sail after the sun goes down.

Boats may be displayed in the water or on land. Exhibitors will get free
parking passes for the park, and free marina slips will be provided
Friday and Saturday nights to exhibitors who wish to use them (sleeping
aboard is OK).

If you want to attend the show, please fill out the registration form
and return it well ahead of time. The information you give us on the
form will be used to make a nice display placard for your boat.

http://www.coots.org/mb/tritonbs/2018-TritonBoatShowForm.pdf

If you displayed your boat at the Depoe Bay Wooden Boat Show this year
and your information hasn't changed, you just need to tell me that
you're coming. There is no registration fee. Exhibitors should check in
with the marina host, at the trailer by the marina as soon as they
arrive, to get parking passes and slip assignements. If you're bringing
your boat for just the day of the show, please show up at least an hour
before the show starts Saturday. Contact me jkohnen@boat-links.com home: 
541-688-2826 cell: 541-913-0299 (only turned on the weekend of the show) 
if you have any questions.
