Welcome to the North Carolina Coastal and Piedmont Chapter of the Antique & Classic Boat Society

December 1, 2022

Seasons greetings fellow boat enthusiasts!

Well, it’s been a little quieter on the waters near me since the temps dropped last month.  That said, I can usually spot one or two watercraft out for some fishing or fresh air it seems.  How are things in your neck of the woods?  Maybe you’re even one of the brave souls who enjoys the water all year round?

Weather be damned, the club got together in early November on Lake Gaston for our Fall Foliage Fun Run.  As it turned out, the temps were quite pleasant and we were able to enjoy a beautiful tour with the area showing off its best fall colors.  You can see pics and read more about the outing in this newsletter edition.

Of course, we’ll stay nice and toasty over the next few months as we gather inside for several planned events all around our area as well as some that are being held by neighboring chapters.  You can read more about the variety of activities below and on our website, which is regularly updated.

Finally, I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued efforts on behalf of the chapter.  We are only as successful as the combined contributions of the membership, and it’s indeed a pleasure to be a part of this truly successful organization.

Hope to see you at an event soon!


Jeff Martinson, President
