A Legend Returns For The NEIYA Meeting This Saturday

This Saturday a New England iceboat legend returns, at least his boat. If you’re not already coming to the annual meeting and swap meet here is another good reason to come.

Fred Greis will be bringing Hal Chamberlain’s HICDIC to our swap meet. I saw the boat in Greenport last month complete with stickers from a 1989 trip to Siberia. It is a piece of local iceboating history and a must-see. Hicdic needs to stay in New England and hopefully, someone can make a new home for her

Questions about this craft? Give Fred a call 516-313-7788

The NEIYA Annual Meeting Swap Meet and Luncheon is Saturday, November 2, 2019, in Hudson MA. Remember the new venue, the same as last year. Parking lot activities generally begin around 10 am with lunch at noon. The full schedule of activities will be released in a couple weeks.

Hudson-Concord Elks Hall

Everyone loved the new venue so we are back again. As you recall there is plenty of parking lot space so bring ice boat stuff to sell or just show off your latest project before it hits the ice? Bring it on down all are welcome.

Come and celebrate last season, and get ready for an even 2019/2020 iceboating season.

Let’s be ready to roll when the “Polar Vortex” comes down for a visit.

If you have not dragged your craft(s) out of storage now’s the time. Get ready. Sort through your gear and consider selling or trading the extras at the swap meet or via our classified section. Help fellow enthusiasts get on the ice and sail fast. Remember what’s old and slow to you is fast and new to someone else.

See you there,



P.S. Question, concerns, want more info, want to try out iceboating, or want to help.
