2014 Meet and Event Schedule

 

Last updated: April 8th 2014


 

Attention Club Members

The MLC is always looking for volunteers to help mind booths and/ or provide motors
or other marine items of interest at our display shows.

These events are a great place to recruit new members,
make new contacts and scare up a few leads on some old outboards.

Please contact the display coordinator of any upcoming events if
you can be of assistance.

 




Some events are still to be updated or added.

Check back often!

Meet info: At this great location we have rented the picnic pavilion, which has a kitchen and washroom area attached,
to display our motors to the public. The adjoining parking lot has plenty of space for swap and sell.
The paved public (free) boat launch is 200 meters away and there is a fair bit of dock and beach area to park boats.
The meet will start at 8am and wrap up whenever the last person decides to leave!
At this time no contests or awards are planned with the exception of an afternoon cruise around the lake and up Levy creek
which runs through a rich natural wetland full of birds and beavers. Aerial view of the lake here:
