Well is has gotten to be the shortest day of the year today - which means boating is only days away! (about 150 days). However we have lots up our sleeve!
Toronto International Boatshow (TIBS)
opens Jan 11th and runs to Jan 17th
Kids & Classics Boatshops Museum has been given a booth in the foyer next to the ACBS
We look forward to this cooperative display
Our plan is to display the elements of our Boats 4 Folks Programme:
1. four kids build a 12' boat in two days - then get in it and row it!
2. The same four kids go sailing in our newly restored Lightning "Bolt"
3. And then they go for a "Sea Flea" ride in our TNT (with moderate power to start)
This redesign of our programme is intended to get some of these kids more "hooked" on the benefits of the boating way of life. The intention is that they will come back and become immersed in the culture of boatbuilding and boating.
We are looking for volunteers to join us on our booth at TIBS, get to know us better and help spread the word! For more info email us at Blackbox@cogeco.ca
Then on Feb 15 2014 Kids & Classics Boatshops Museum is hosting the ACBS Toronto Chapter Winter Workshop event! This will be a blast for sure - To be on our volunteer team contact us at the email above, also check out the ACBS website for tickets if you wish to attend and are not on our volunteer team.
Features of the day include a Chili Contest, and multiple skills development opportunities!
