2014 Tahoe Concours d'Elegance

Post by Ken Miller » Wed Jan 29, 2014 11:58 am

From the January/February 2014 issue of Classic Yacht Magazine:

The Tahoe Yacht Club Foundation President is quoted as saying,
"We want to thank Sierra Boat Company for the close working relationship and amazing venue over the past 20 years that helped solidify the spirit of the Concours. Unfortunately, there were several conditions that were added by Sierra Boat Company, under the license agreement, that jeopardized the boat owners, judges, sponsors, event personnel and volunteers, as well as the charitable status of the show."

Does anyone know what happened, or if there is an alternate venue yet?

they couldn't reach agreement on terms, and so the foundation is looking for another site. The website for the concours will contain any news of a new site, if they secure one.

this has been a dance for some years now. Revenues and risk allocations are always the main game.

If you own a barrelback, or just enjoy them - Obexer's is the place to be (hopefully with your boat) August 8-9 2014. As one of the organizers of the show I can tell you it will be the largest collection of barrelbacks in one place since they rolled off the production line. There will be barrel's there from all over North America.
