The other day John Heiderich heard back from the owner of Big Water Marina (the second very promising location we considered). With all of the construction they are doing between now and April next year they are afraid to commit to being ready to host our show for 2022. They still want to host us in 2023.
Some of the committee members met on Friday to flip John’s boat and the members agreed that the Green Pond location we looked at for a possible show in June, just will not work for us. The long pier with no break water and the possible wind and boat action would possibly cause a lot to damage to our boats tied along side. Even if all of the boat had a number of bumpers out we think damage could happen. So with that no Hartwell show in 2022.
We will plan an outing like we did this year for the second weekend in April and will work with Big Water Marina to see if we can have a couple of slips for boats staying in the water over night.
We know this is not what we all wanted but it is for the best.
