Dear Antique Boat and Marine Engine Enthusiast:
The weather may be cold and grey but the Calvert Marine Museum is already looking forward to the warmer weather and the Antique Boat & Marine Engine Show, May 6-7, 2017 as part of the twelfth annual Solomons Maritime Festival celebrating Southern Maryland traditions. The show hours are 10am – 5pm on Saturday and 10am – 3pm on Sunday (optional). Registration materials and the schedule of events for Saturday’s Maritime Festival will be available on our website, www.calvertmarinemuseum.com.
As in the past, the marine engines and vintage boats will be on display in front of the museum and in the parking lot. Once again, we will have a forklift available for those requiring extra help unloading and loading. Although there will be no judging, each exhibitor will receive a commemorative plaque of the event. On display in the boat basin will be the recently-built, electronically powered, modified Smith Island Crab Scrape.
If you would like to participate, please complete the enclosed registration form. Registration forms can also be found on CMM’s website. There is no registration fee. The event is open to collectors of pre-80 outboard and inboard engines, antique marine steam engines, and model engines. Antique and classic boats of all kinds can be displayed on trailers or afloat in the museum's boat basin. Please return the registration to me by April 14, 2017. Once it is received I will send a confirmation. If you have any questions regarding registration, please contact me at 410-326-2042 ext. 19 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. For all other questions contact Richard Dodds (ext. 31 or email email@example.com ).
Your invitation includes a list of local accommodations. We have reserved a block of rooms for Friday and Saturday nights at the Holiday Inn Solomons at the reduced rate of $91 per night plus tax. The rooms have been reserved under Calvert Marine Museum, Solomons Maritime Festival until April 21, 2017. When calling for reservations you must give the Holiday Inn the code “C2M.”
All participants are invited to our traditional supper in the boat basin at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday evening. Thanks to our sponsors, we have managed to hold the cost again to $15 per person. If you wish to join us, please include a check payable to the Calvert Marine Museum with your registration. Once again, we will also offer a free continental breakfast on Sunday morning. Indicate on the registration form if you will be taking advantage of this offer.
We look forward to seeing you in May as we celebrate antique boats and marine engines.
Sherry Reid, Volunteer/Event Coordinator
