Just a heads up/reminder...
The Boat Racing Swap Meet and season kickoff party @ Picton will be on May 5
I believe this is the 20th anniversary of this TORC event (not always hosted at the Fralick's)
Dig out the dusty stuff you dont want/use anymore... someone is likely looking for it!
This event goes rain or shine.
NO PARKING ON THE LAWNS WITHOUT DIRECTION FROM THE FRALICK'S
Lawns have been damaged in the past. Welcome to pull down to the house/shop, drop off your items and then drive back out to parking.
Show up anytime after 9 am
- Pay as you go BBQ/drinks throughout the day
- 50-50 draw at 3:00, must be in attendance
- Pot luck dinner in the early evening (5pm?)
- Camping overnight permited, or couch surf, but pre-arrange with the Fralick's
- Racers, collectors and enthusiasts welcome!
This is as much a social event as it is a swap meet. Many people are there well into the night!
Most of the space is outdoors... best to bring a table or tarp to spread your stuff out on. Also if you have an ez-up might be a good idea.
Bring a lawn chair or two also!
Usually about 40-50 people show up through out the day. Anything can show up... Outboards, OPC, Inboard, current or vintage, never know what will be there. All welcome. But primarily it is outboard racing related equipment. Sometimes there is lots of stuff... sometimes not so much.... but always a great time.
This site is on the water with a boat launch and open to at your risk boat runs. Rick is happy to answer any quesitons in regards to this. It is bigger water, but has provided a good testing area when weather co-operates. This is the site of the historic Picton Inboard Races.
