What A Day We Had At Wayne's World!
On a cloudy Saturday, about 80 members of the TSACB, The Maple Leaf Outboard Club, and the Toronto Chapter of ACBS got together for a workshop day and tour of Wayne's fantastic Nautical collection. Every year Wayne's World gets bigger and better!
Ron Stevenson, John Gullick, Murray Parnell, and our very own Fibreglass Professional Ronny Haylock put on workshops to help us become more knowledgeable boaters. Photo at left shows "Professor" Ron Stevenson discussing lower unit repairs for outboard motors.
Wayne provided us with homemade pizza on his wood fired oven and we also had submarine sandwiches. Photo at right shows Christian Robinson getting the Tuscan Chef pizza oven ready for lunch.
Lots of trading and selling of "marine stuff" took place all day and there were some great deals. I would like to thank Wayne Robinson and his family for hosting this event which has become an annual event not to miss!

This year's workshop was the inaugural event for the new TSACBA 6 by 12 trailer showing our logo on the side and used to ferry supplies and other items to various events which are attended by TSACBA members. Congratulations to John Gullick, Murray Parnell, and the Trailer Committee for following through on this project for the benefit of the Association.
