Clear Lake, Lake County, Northern California

All the boats and people are coming back together again.  19 years ago Jim Robello co founded this event with the calling “A gathering of family and friends to use and enjoy our antique & classic boats on Clear Lake.”  Wood & Glory remains a “Lets Go Boating” event first and foremost, with some social events blended in during the evenings as outlined below.

SIGN UP NOW!

The Northern CA/Lake Tahoe and Southern California ACBS Chapters want to welcome you to join us at beautiful Bass Lake for the 27th Annual Bass Lake Antique and Classic Wooden Boat Show and Rendezvous. This truly wonderful event has created many special memories throughout the years and is guaranteed to be a very FUN and RELAXING weekend for all. The first in-the-water boat show for 2017 is on May 19th through May 21st, but if you can arrive a couple days early to Bass Lake, plan a side trip to enjoy the beautiful and magical views of Yosemite National Park only 17 miles away. With all the rain and snow that we have been receiving this season, the waterfalls will be amazing to see. What a treat it will be to have Bass Lake full again this year after the harsh drought that we all have had to deal with the last few years.

Changes and Updates to Wood & Glory XIX

Thomas’ Thursday Dinner Venue Changed

By Feb 23rd the winter rains filled Clear Lake to some 18” above flood stage.  What that 18” did was flood Donna & Allen Thomas’ Corinthian Bay property and part of their home.  Yet positive Donna says, “we’re ok, and I guess I’m not cooking this year, and I guess I get new carpeting!”

SORRY, THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT!

DENIM, DIAMONDS AND DAFFODILS

April 7, 8 & 9

We are so excited to bring Spring Fling back to my favorite two towns in California, Nevada City and Grass Valley.  It has been eleven years since the Northern California/Lake Tahoe Chapter of ACBS has been to this area and it’s about time everyone returned.  We are very proud of this area.  Home of the largest gold deposits in California, beautiful lakes, clear rivers and tall pines.  This is a pretty nice place!  We have a rich history of gold mining, lumber production and agriculture throughout Nevada County.
