30th Anniversary Antique & Classic Boat Show & Raceboat Reunion - September 2007

On behalf of NIAGARA FRONTIER ANTIQUE & CLASSIC BOATS, a New York chapter of the Antique & Classic Boat Society, Inc. and the 2007 Boat Show Planning Committee, I want to welcome you to the 30th Anniversary Antique Boat Show & Raceboat Regatta. --- We appreciate all the support given to the show by the participants, volunteers, sponsors, and spectators! --- We have put together a fantastic collection of classic wooden and race boats, as well as antique cars for your enjoyment.

A special thanks goes out to all the BUFFALO LAUNCH CLUB members who have moved their boats out of the basin to make room for our show! ---They make it possible for us to display all of the magnificent boats that participate in the show. --- We would also like to thank ANCHOR MARINE for being a great neighbor and for all their support in putting on the show. As boat show chairman, I need to thank all the members of the planning committee that give countless hours over an entire year to make this show happen.

We do hope you enjoy our 30th Anniversary Show and welcome your feedback, so visit us a www.OldBoatsBuffalo.org to share your thoughts and view the following photos of this year's event.

We hope that your travel plans will include Buffalo, New York next year, so mark your calendars for the weekend of September 5-7, 2008.
