Southwind Boats 916-600-6938
  • Thrill the Children First Annual VJB Toys for Tots Challenge!

    Saturday November 2, 2013...

    I know it's short notice and not even sure if we'll be able to access Lake Berryessa because of the government shut down, but VintageJetBoats.com would like to start a new tradition and make a worth while donation to the Marines Toys for Tots Foundation and have a little hot boat fun at the same time.

    We usually meet up for breakfast at Black Bear Diner just off 80 in West Sac and then convoy over to the lake...
    I hope we can make this an awesome annual gathering that's worthwhile!!!

    Same gathering place as other times in the last few few years. Steele Park/ Lupine Shores
    I'll bring hamburgers/hot dogs to feed those that bring a new unwrapped toy...
    If you don't bring a toy and still wanna eat there will be a box for $$$ donations...

      I love this event! If everyone would bring at least "ONE Unwrapped New Toy" We could make a significant difference, for this Awesome Cause!

      We've been talking about this since last year. We wanted a yearly gathering for a worth while cause and this just kinda fell in place

      no...it's more than that when you factor in the alcohol needed for installation

      I was factoring in the alcohol!! The driveline is about $250.... Not sure what anyone else is going to drink though.

      Ok so we will definitely be at this event. We will meet up with everyone at the lake. David, let me know if we can bring anything for food or beverages to help out.

      Great news!!!

      I'll be bringing a bunch of hamburgers, hot dogs, buns, and fixins for both...
      I have been known to bring Bloody Mary mix and since this is a fund raiser of sorts would be happy to accept donations for the cause...

      So I guess bring what you want to drink and snack on would be the answer to the question...
