Antique Outboard Motor Swap Meet held Saturday in Tupper Lake
TUPPER LAKE — Current President Michael Glenn has announced that an Antique Outboard Motor Swap Meet of the chapter will be held at the Tupper Lake Municipal Park, 17-19 Demars Blvd., on Saturday, June 10.
Attendees come from throughout the Northeast as well as the local area, and the general public is welcome to attend. There is no admission fee and no fee to display, buy, sell or trade.
The day is planned to begin at 9 a.m. as a casual open-air event that is expected to last until 2 p.m. The event includes the buying, selling and trading of antique and classic outboard motors, boats and related items. There will be food available for a donation for morning coffee and donuts, and at lunchtime at noontime local eateries including PorkBusters BBQ will sell food.
The swap meet is held in an “Antiques Roadshow”-type atmosphere, and interested parties can get parts, advice and resources for their old outboard motors and boats, as well as an outlet to bring their motors to put them in the hands of a collector who can restore it. There will be judging of motors in several categories.
The chapter, organized in March 2005, has experienced growth over the last 18 years.
