I know there is a lot of Donzi and other performance boat folks on the Bay, come on down. Even if you don't bring a boat. Mike and I should be easy to find.
Its a great little town with hotels from basic to super high end, plenty of little shops and restaurants to explore. The Museum, the show, the flee market, the vendors, there's a lot to do. Or do nothing at all and take it all in with a drink in hand.

The registration is out >>>>>> http://www.chesapeakebayacbs.org/ima...Form_FINAL.pdf (http://www.chesapeakebayacbs.org/images/PDFs/2016_CBC_Boat_Festival_Reg_Form_FINAL.pdf)

Wooden classics, vintage race boats, and other antique and Chesapeake Bay-related boats are coming to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum for the 29th annual Antique & Classic Boat Festival in St. Michaels, MD. Hosted by the Chesapeake Bay Chapter of the Antique & Classic Boat Society (ACBS), this Father’s Day weekend event brings an era of by-gone days to the Miles River and CBMM’s waterfront campus.
This year, the festival features a selection of Chesapeake Bay-built workboats, including the Chesapeake deadrise and buy boat seen dockside at the museum. Along with the East Coast’s largest collection of antique and classic boats, the festival’s signature Arts at Navy Point pavilion brings 70 juried fine artists, craftspeople, and vendors offering nautical and maritime-themed items for boat and home.
Boats range from runabouts to yachts, including race boats, work boats, launches, hydroplanes, and utilities. Workshops and seminars, building demonstrations, family activities, and a nautical flea market will be available throughout the weekend, along with a selection of regional and grilled foods, music, and a Pyrat rum bar for libations and other drinks.
Children’s activities include boatbuilding craft projects, and the Hagerty Insurance Marine Youth Judging program, where youth learn about the award-winning qualities of preserved and restored classic boats. Along the Fogg’s Landing side of CBMM’s campus, the festival’s Field of Dreams features an array of restorable classic boats and motors, along with other items in a nautical flea market sale.

Hey folks, the show is coming up in just a couple weeks and a friendly reminder that you all should make an effort to attend. Lots of cool stuff to see at the show and there is the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum on the grounds, St Michaels the historic town itself, restaurants, shops, bars with live bands … plenty to do or do nothing at all.
If you all mention this website I will let you stand at the steering wheel and look down the same deck Allen “Brownie” Brown did many times and I’ve been told the great Don Aronow once did back in the late 1960’s during the heyday of offshore racing. You all have herd Brownie’s adventures in this boat ( http://www.powerboatnation.com/brownies-bites-boys-and-girls-just-wanna-have-fun/ ). Now come see his engineering creation in person and if you are there at just the right time there may be a ride happening.
