Possible Swim-in in Georgia

Chuck,

I think it's a great idea to have an Amphicar gathering in GA.
However you should check with Bob Becker, a club member, from Covington
Georgia. Bob was at Mt. Dora showing a classic boat. He didn't have
his Amphicar, but he did stop by and speak to everyone. Bob was asking
about a possible gathering in conjunction with the National Antique and
Classic Boat show sometime in September. I understand the location is
somewhere north of Atlanta.

Hi guys,

You can definitely count us in for that one. It would be nice
for a change to drive only a couple of hours to a swim-in instead of
an entire day. Sounds like fun!
