The Vintage Race Boats Returned to Valleyfield !!!
The past came alive this summer when the vintage
race boats of bygone eras returned to Valleyfield to
participate in a special
Vintage Race Boat Program. The Vintage boats
were on display
all weekend, and ran demonstration laps on the
historic Valleyfield race course. A
special thank you to Ben Lemay - our Valleyfield vintage event organizer. Ben
arranged for The Obsession Boys to run a couple of parade laps during
the opening ceremonies on Friday, Saturday and Sunday - allowing us to
help the other vintage boats throughout the day. The photos below were
taken on Friday morning, giving Ben's friend a ride, waving the Canadian
flag and having a ball. And to top it off, Steve David was part of my
crew, helping Donnie McLean at the dock - it doesn't get any better !!!
And this year at Valleyfield it was no contest -
our beloved Golden Snorkel Award winner was Jason
We all jumped right in, helped a friend in need, got the
motor drained and fired, and all had a lot of fun. Jason was
a good sport, but most important, nobody got hurt and The
Obsession Boys got to pass along the Golden Snorkel and
after a long, cold winter in the Vintage Race Boat Shop !!!
After three days racing and of vintage fun at Valleyfield, the final party
at Big Willy's !!!
Yup - we sure had fun - and I posted these pics from a
MacDonald's WiFi hotspot ???!!!
