May 2010 : 15 21 22 28 29 30

Saturday, May 15, 2010
Where: River Vltava below Charles bridge, Prague, Czech Republic
Saturday, May 15, 2010
In its second year, an event celebrating boatmen and their boats. Originally for Venetian gondolieri, it is now open to most boatment and their boats, and most particularly to steamboaters. Although the closing date to register for special perks with a steamboat is April 15, I'm sure the organizers will give some leeway.

Even if you won't have a steamboat available, if you're going to be in east Europe check out the website at http://www.navalis.cz/en/st.-johns-river-festivites-navalis/ and see if it's something you'd like to see.

Event Title: Caddo Lake Steamboat Meet
Where: Shady Glade Marina, Uncertain, Texas
Friday, May 21, 2010
A regular annual meet held at the Shady Glade Marina in Uncertain, Texas (just across the border from Shreveport, Louisiana). We will spend Friday and Saturday exploring the many boat roads through looming Cypress trees and Spanish Moss with a special side trip on Friday afternoon to tour the historic steam powered McNeill Street Water Pumping Station in Shreveport ( http://www.mcneillstreet.org ). For those of you who would like to start early, some of us will be arriving with boats on Thursday.

The usual Saturday night dinner will not be held at the Big Pines Lodge due to a fire last year. It will be held at a nearby location, with an evening cruise thereafter.
