NEIYA Gathering @ Moore Brothers Bristol RI Apr 20th


Hello All-

The NEIYA Spring Meeting has been scheduled for April 20, 2019. Clear your calendars and come join the fun! Grizzled veterans and future rookies welcome.

The place will be the Moore Brothers Company shop, 253 Franklin St, Bristol, Rhode Island 02809. Heading west on Franklin St look for a driveway on the right with a big gray building on the left and a big red building on the right. Moore Bro Co is in the gray building. If you miss the driveway take a right on Buttonwood and take the next right into the parking lot.

The date is Saturday April 20th / Hours 11 – 3

Refreshments and lunch provided – nothing fancy, just the usual champagne, caviar and foie gras. Or possibly pizza.

Bring iceboat related items for sale. Maybe one last chance to move some gear!

Oliver Moore, Jeff Kent, T Thieler, and who knows who else will be on hand so it’s a good bet there will be some discussion (formal or otherwise) on a range of topics, including but not limited to the worlds of iceboats, dirt boats, regular boats, composites, road trips, sailing stories, and God knows what else.

If you are interested in attending please give T a shout via email so we can get a rough idea of how many mouths to feed- t_thieler@yahoo.com

Looking forward to the event and seeing everyone! Think ICE….

Williams Bay Speaker Series, Iceboating Is The Topic For Saturday

Hey Folks- Jane Pegel gives us all this heads-up on a very interesting event out in Wisconsin- If you are in the area be sure to check it out!

Good evening iceboaters.

The Village of Williams Bay was incorporated in 1919. For the next few months
there will be a number of events celebrating the centennial.

The Williams Bay Centennial Speaker Series is part of the celebration . The Skeeter Ice Boat Club was
incorporated in 1933 and holds a significant roll in the history of the Village. Iceboating is the Speaker Series
topic for Saturday, March 30. Spark Lundberg, who has been successfully building and racing iceboats for over 60 years,
and Susie Pegel, a Williams Bay native who began racing a DN in her early teens, will be giving a presentation
about iceboating in Williams Bay and the Geneva Lake area.

The event will be in the council room of Williams Bay Village Hall beginning at 10:00 a.m. CDT.
To get to the Village Hall – take Stark St. west off Wisconsin Hwy 67, on the north side of the Village.
( Burroughs’ Floor Coverings on the corner). Drive past the tennis courts to the stop sign at the west end of Stark St.
Turn right and drive up the hill to the Village Hall.

Enjoy! No charge!
