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
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 ???!!!
