Special Vintage Race Boat Program

The past came come alive this summer when the vintage race boats of bygone eras returned to the Buffalo Launch Club to participate in a special vintage race boat program. The beautiful vintage boats started arriving on Friday morning, Sept 8th with registration and APBA vintage safety inspections during the day, followed with the now famous free "Pit Pass Party" at the Launch Club. The Vintage boats were on display on Saturday and ran demonstration laps on the historic BLC race course all day long, and the sights and sounds were spectacular. And perhaps the highlight Tom Bertolini presented with the Bob Schroeder/Schenley Award, well deserved recognition from his peers, for sound and consistent leadership of our beloved APBA V&H Division ???!!!

Check out our Buffalo videos, let them load and crank up the sound!

Saturday began with our drivers meeting, and then we ran vintage heats all day long !!!


























After a full day of running hard on the course, it was time for a few cocktails with good friends, some good food and of course, some awards.








Thanks again to Bill and Rich DeGlopper, for another great Buffalo vintage event ???!!!
