The Vintage Race Boats Returned to Valleyfield !!!

The past came alive this summer when the vintage race boats of bygone eras returned to Valleyfield to participate in a special Vintage Race Boat Program. The Vintage boats were on display all weekend, and ran demonstration laps on the historic Valleyfield race course. A special thank you to Ben Lemay - our Valleyfield vintage event organizer. Ben arranged for The Obsession Boys to run a couple of parade laps during the opening ceremonies on Friday, Saturday and Sunday - allowing us to help the other vintage boats throughout the day. The photos below were taken on Friday morning, giving Ben's friend a ride, waving the Canadian flag and having a ball. And to top it off, Steve David was part of my crew, helping Donnie McLean at the dock - it doesn't get any better !!!

         

         

         

   

 


 

        

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

         

And this year at Valleyfield it was no contest - our beloved Golden Snorkel Award winner was Jason Pomerleau.

       

       

We all jumped right in, helped a friend in need, got the motor drained and fired, and all had a lot of fun. Jason was a good sport, but most important, nobody got hurt and The Obsession Boys got to pass along the Golden Snorkel and after a long, cold winter in the Vintage Race Boat Shop !!!
