The 11th annual Gull Lake Classic Boat Show will be held at Bar Harbor on beautiful Gull Lake — now an official and featured club event, and well worth the trip.
This show attracts some of the most beautiful and rare antique and classic boats, along with live music, breakfast, the Classic Boat Tour of Gull Lake, and a shoreline parade. It’ll be hard to top the boats, activities, and camaraderie of the 2018 Gull Lake Classic, but we’re working hard at it!
We’ll begin the festivities on Friday afternoon, August 23, with a cruise on the Gull Lake chain, departing from Bar Harbor at 1:00. We’ll return to Bar Harbor, where we’ll be able to park our boats overnight, in time to get ready for the Captain’s Party at 6:30.
Lee and Penny Anderson have graciously offered to host the gathering at the Anderson Classic Boat Museum. Those of us who attended the event there during the International Show in 2015 know what a special opportunity this is, and we’ll all look forward to having another opportunity to see the Anderson collection. (SPACE IS LIMITED – REGISTER EARLY)
The show will take place on Saturday, August 24, at Bar Harbor. Please plan to have your boat in place by 9:00 AM, as judging will begin then, with awards at 3:00, and the show will conclude at 4:00.

We’re really looking forward to this show on several levels: it’ll be a great show, but it’s also an opportunity to extend the BSLOL message to more members and potential new members further north!
