The skies were overcast and a bit chilly, but no rain. 16 Wisconsin and 7 Chicagoland Section members, MBCA, enjoyed a fall afternoon luncheon at the Boat House Bar & Grill, adjacent to Big Foot Beach State Park on the east end of Geneva Lake.  We had 10 different models of MB cars on display which everyone enjoyed seeing and discussing.  A wonderful opportunity to get better acquainted with our fellow MBCA members and share our enjoyment of owning and driving these special MB cars.   After our lunch we headed west about 8 miles on South Shore Drive to the Abbey Resort in Fontana on Geneva Lake.  We had an opportunity to see many unique classic wooden boats at this annual boat show, which is one of the largest annual classic and wooden boat shows in the country. Some of us even had an opportunity to take a half hour ride on Geneva Lake in a newer, locally-built Streblow V8-powered wooden speed boat. Bernd Kampe
