  • 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...

My buddy Ryan's boat, 74 Wriedt, 455 olds, took a major dump on him and thank you David for towing it in. All is not lost how ever as he still has the other 455 from the boat he scrapped. Glad it was the end of the season and not the start. We will get it back on the water. We took about 80 pictures and I have sorted through most of them. Here are some of the better ones cause I know we all like to see the picturesAttachment 12465Attachment 12466
      Great to see you and the family Jeff!!! Thanks for bringing your buddies too!!! I forgot to get the last guy that showed up a dash plaque, pm me over his name and address and I'll drop one in the mail...

      There was also $137 in the box from sales of shirts, decals, & koozies!!! 1/2 of that will go to TFT too!!! Way to go everyone!!!

      Mark your calendar for the first Saturday in November next year too!!! Rain or shine we'll do it again!!!

      It was kind of short notice, but ended up pretty good, for a last minute event. We had 2 goals in mind, 1. Do something for the Kids, this Holiday Season & 2. Establish a Firm Date, for an Annual West Coast, Near End of Season, Rain or Shine, Freeze You Tail Off, Hot Boat Extravaganza! I think Next Year, with a little more notice, we can easily Double the Boat Count & Donations for the Toys for Tots! The Official Day for this, will be The First Weekend in November! Whether it happens on Saturday or Sunday has yet to be ironed out, but that shouldn't be to hard.
