Marking the unofficial beginning of summer on beautiful Whitefish Lake, the Big Sky Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society (ACBS) is sponsoring Whitefish Woody Weekend VI hosted by The Lodge at Whitefish Lake.
Whitefish Woody Weekend VI will begin on Friday evening June 23th with a cruise/parade around Whitefish Lake. Thirty-six classic boats will be on public display at the Lodge at Whitefish Lake from 9AM until 6PM on Saturday, June 24th. Sunday morning, June 25th will feature a poker run with the wood boats out on the lake followed by a BBQ at the Lodge for event participants.
The event is fun for all ages. If you have a classic boat, register early and join us for a fun filled weekend using and showing your boat. If you don’t have a classic boat there is still fun to be had. Join us on the lake or on the beaches, decks and docks around the lake for the Friday evening cruise or Saturday at the Whitefish Lake Lodge marina to enjoy the boats up close and met the owners of these fine representatives of the art and craftsmanship of the past.
Admission is free to the public. Cost to enter a boat in the event is only $70 which includes all event activities and the BBQ lunch.
The Lodge at Whitefish Lake, the only Four Diamond Resort in Montana, is a great host for this event. The venue is first class and the accommodations are specially priced for this event.
In only its sixth year, Whitefish Woody Weekend has become a premier classic boat event, attracting award winning classic wood boats from all across the Pacific Northwest. The event normally sells out, so register early to ensure participation in this event. Registration materials are now available.
