California Dreamin’

by Debra Dobbins

California has beaches and we just love them!  Cold or warm, rocky and sandy sunny beaches.  The smell of the Pacific Ocean is intoxicating!  The salt air on the tip of your tongue as you breathe in the other flavors of the sea.  Divine!  There is no place else like it.  Seagulls, sea lions and seaweed.  Santa Cruz has it all!  Cypress trees, Redwood trees and wineries.  Delicious!


Herb Hall Confirms Sierra Boat Company Has NOT Sold

Although there was a two page article in the latest Classic Boating magazine saying that Sierra Boat Company has sold, long time member Herb Hall would like ACBS membership to know that Sierra Boat Company has NOT sold, though it remains on the market.   Herb would like us to correct the story when we have the opportunity to do so.  Thank you for helping.

Woodie Whoopie at Atkinson’s was a HIT!

August 4th’s Woodie Whoopie at Bernie and Carol Atkinson’s lakeside home at Tahoe was a record breaker!!!  There were 119 ACBS members and friends in attendance on a beautiful August evening.


California Dreamin’ Chapter Annual Meeting in Santa Cruz

                              California Dreamin’ in Santa Cruz             

ACBS Annual Meeting  November 10, 11 & 12, 2017

It has been eleven years since our chapter has been to the beautiful Santa Cruz coastline.  Many things have changed in the area but some of the very best have not.  There are still tall, tall Redwoods, surfers challenging the waves and sea lions hanging out under the public pier.

Who can resist the allure of peaceful, winding Delta waterways, watching all manner of waterfowl in their native habitat and enjoying warm, evening sunsets with the many hues of pink, orange and gold.
