Florida Chapter AOMCI annual Super Meet

Postby DaytonaJohn » Sat Sep 28, 2019 2:54 am

Nov 14 and 15 2019 will be the dates for the Florida Chapter AOMCI annual Super Meet in Winter Haven, FL. This is a Friday- Saturday event with a lot of activities lined up ! Friday is set up day at Lake Shipp Park with a cruise for lunch at the Harborside Restaurant. There are 16 lakes connected by canals. The cruise usually goes by Legoland (the site of the former Cypress Gardens) so everybody can watch the water ski show.

That evening there's a banquet with guest speaker Dennis Evinrude. I believe this is the 110th anniversary of Evinrude so this is going to be a real big Evinrude celebration. Off duty police are hired to stay in the park overnight to guard everybody's displays.

Saturday will be more cruising, a BBQ, judging of the outboards and displays, and awards.

the address is 1649 Lake Shipp Dr., Winter Haven, FL 33880

I stay at the Lake Roy Beach Inn where you can go back and forth to the meet by water . There's plenty of parking at the motel for trailers on the grass. The people who insist on more luxury stay in a Hampton or Holiday Inn next to each other .

Ooops !  It should say Dennis Evinrude above NOT Ralph Evinrude !   [ Made that change for you in the post above. -Moderator ]

Ralph Evinrude is the guy who offered Charlie Strang a job as Chief Engineer of Evinrude !
