Bass Lake Rendezvous

Save the date on your 2019 Boating Calendar for a great weekend at beautiful Bass Lake.  The NC/LT and SoCal ACBS Chapters want to invite all our members and their guests to our first in the water fun and relaxing event of the 2019 boating season at Bass Lake.  Sign up early and make your room reservations soon so you don’t miss out on a truly memorable weekend!  Last year we had 50 boats in the event and over 125 ACBS members and their guests.  They enjoyed great food, wonderful weather, and so many amazing Antique & Classic boats while visiting with ACBS friends and their families from all over California at this little jewel of a lake so close to Yosemite National Park.

Come join in on the fun starting with a great Hotdog BBQ at Millers Landing @ 5:30 pm Friday night, sponsored by the SoCal Chapter.  Good times!  Just bring your favorite adult beverage and either an hor d’oeuvre or dessert to share.  The SOCal Chapter supplies the rest!  What a great way to start your weekend by attending an amazing BBQ on beautiful Bass Lake by way of boat or car.  It’s a very nice 25 minute ride around the lake if you can’t or don’t want to go by boat.  Hope you can join us for this very fun part of your weekend.

Saturday morning @ 7:45 am we are having a simple continental breakfast with coffee, juices, donuts and many other tasty breakfast treats dockside at The Pines Marina.  The Boat Show starts at 9:00 am Saturday morning sponsored by the Bass Lake Lions Club.  Hope you can participate in the boat parade and fly-by at 10:45 am Saturday morning for this very fun gathering on the lake.  This gives spectators around the lake a chance to view our amazing Antique & Classic boats in action.  This is the 29th year that both northern and southern California ACBS Chapters have gotten together at Bass Lake to help support the many wonderful things that the Bass Lake Lions Club does for their community.  Thanks for all of your support!

After the Boat Show there is a sunset dinner scheduled at The Pines Resort starting with a no-host cocktail party @ 5:00 pm with dinner following at 6:00 pm.  Come join us for a beautiful view of the lake while enjoying your cocktails and dinner from our private location overlooking the lake.

Sunday morning starts off with our Annual Poker Run @ 9:00 am…lots of fun for all!  Sunday morning brunch and awards start right after the Poker Run @ 10:30 am at The Pines Resort overlooking the lake.

Hope you can join us for the 29th Annual Bass Lake Rendezvous to view some of the finest antique and classic boats on the west coast, and, if you can, try to take an extra day or so to visit the beauty and magic of Yosemite National Park, only 17 miles away.

Great times, great memories, great friends!  What an amazing way to start out the 2019 boating season!

Teri and I, along with the SoCal ACBS Chapter hope everybody comes and has a Fun and Relaxing weekend at Beautiful Bass Lake!

All the best,

Robert Gaestel & Teri Parker, Co-Chairs
