these three ACBS chapters will have for mally put together a joint meeting,
one which may become an annual event. So save the date and look for more

for 1998 Boat Show Underway
meetings between the Skan eateles Chamber of Commerce and the Chapter were
initiated in Oct ober to begin the planning process for the Chapter's 20th
Annual Boat Show next July. Boat Show press releases with photographs have
also been mailed to 59 national and regional publications. Local releases
will begin in February 1998.
Past Presidents' Council Formed
THAT THE PAST PRESIDENTS OF
the Finger Lakes Chapter represent a unique and valuable
resource to the Chapter, a Council has been formed made up of the six individuals
who have previously served the Chapter as president and continue to be
active members; namely,
Marsden, Bob Myllymaki,
Jim Brennan, Susan Buehler
and Dick Sherwood.
The purpose of the Council will be to identify other Chapter members who
should be recommended for future leadership positions in the Chapter. The
Council will, in effect, act as a standing nominating committee for future
officers of FLC. 1997 concludes the second of two years in office for the
current slate of officers listed in the side bar on the opposite page.
On January 24th at the Chapter's Annual Meeting, a new slate of officers
will be pre sented for the years 1998 and 1999. If you would like to be
considered for a future leadership position in the Chapter, please let
Dick Sherwood (716-265-1518) know of your interest as soon as possible
and that message will be conveyed to the Council.

From The President
EVERYONE KNOWS, WHEN WRITING A letter
of thanks and naming names, there is always the possibility of overlooking
someone who deserves special recognition. In my letter in the September
issue of Brightwork, I did just
that! My apologies to
Bernie Clapp who
designed and labored long to build
the 45 boat placard holders for the Chapter's
Boat Show. They mount on the pier's railing where spectators can read information
about the boats they are viewing in the water. Those holders are an excellent
addition to the Chapter's Annual Boat Show and fill the bill to a tee.
Many people commented about how effective and convenient they were. And,
of course, they can be used year after year. Thanks,
Bernie, for making such a fine contribution to the Show. It is very much
appreciated by Chapter members `and spectators alike, and will be for many
years to come.
ACBS and chapter registration renewal forms and membership dues for 1998

a note to say thank you for the great article you wrote for Brightwork.
Winning at Clayton was such an honor and then the publicity that followed
was a big surprise. We both were amazed at how basically the same information
was told in different styles, tone and emphasis. We particularly liked
how you communicated the history and back ground of Betty Anne.
thank you for your interest.
Peter & Ann Patch
would like to take a minute to thank you and Arnie Rubenstein for seeing

Letter to the Chapter
Friends at Finger Lakes, ACBS,
was so surprised to receive a beautiful vase of fresh flowers so soon after
my recent surgery. So great of you to think of me. The flowers brightened
my day for sure. Actually, Connie and I are snug as a
bug in a rug out here in Sue &
Jedd Dove's camp on the lake -- awaiting later in the fall when we can
get on down to Key West and into our "new" abode. We enjoyed the Boat Show
and work ing with all of you. And playing, too! In retrospect, I wish I
had begun my boat show affiliation sooner, but suffice it to say, a return
to Skan eateles at the end of July would be great!
wishes to all and to the Chapter in general. You certainly have a dynamite
show going and I'm sure you'll
want to continue the tradition.
you again for your kindness.

for the many comments about the September `97 issue of B r i g h
t w o r k. Unfortunately, use
of color will probably have to be
limited, reserved for use in the fall issue that covers the summer Boat
Show. However, it is clear that
glossy white paper does provide increased quality especially in the reproduction
of photos. Stapling is also an attempt to up the quality a bit. Hence,
the changes you see with this issue.
