14th Annual Lake Dora Southeastern Swim-In

Main Show Day - Saturday March 26, 2011
(The Actual Festival is Friday - Sunday March 25-27th)

Grandiose Amphicar Banquet Saturday night


Information regarding the Upcoming March 2011 Swim-In at beautiful AND
WARM ( ! ) Lake Dora. In many ways, the Lake Dora Swim-In heralds the comi
ng of Summer and gives Northerners an opportunity to throw off their
overcoats and say good bye to the fluffy white stuff and bask in the warmth,
sunshine and atmosphere of Florida. This Swim-In dates from 1998 and is now the
14th Annual South Eastern Lake Dora Swim-In. (Until 3 years ago, it was
called the Mount Dora Swim-In) The Festival is still on beautiful Lake Dora,
but is 6 miles west at Wooten Park in Tavares, Florida, where there is a
lot more room. The city of Tavares has gone all out to make the festival a
memorable event. In addition to the huge Antique Boat Show and the Amphicar
component, they also have a Woodie show ( Wooden bodied station wagons and
convertibles from the 30's to the 50's,) so there is literally something
for everybody. It is worth noting that for all of the 13 preceding Lake
Dora Swim-Ins, we have never had a rainy day - just one or two slightly cool
days in the 60's which still felt like a heat wave to the northern
visitors. Registration last year was $30 and is expected to be the same this year.
More information can be obtained from the Sunnyland ACBS web site:
_www.ACBS-Sunnyland.com_ (http://www.acbs-sunnyland.com/) ( be sure you are
looking at 2011 information, as in the past the prior year information also
came up which had incorrect details.) More information can be obtained by
contacting our local Amphicar leader, Peter Fredsall by telephone (386)
788-9211. Additional details will be forthcoming in e-mails posted on the
Amphicar Lovers. Our Host Hotel, The Inn on the Green, and our Banquet site are
actually closer to the Tavares show site than they were to Mount Dora. There
is also a first class RV Campground 3 miles away from Wooten Park.
