The 2020 LOTO Classic Boat & Engine Rendezvous was on a beautiful fall weekend, September 25-26, 2020.
Margaritaville at Lake of the Ozarks hosted the event, filling the boat slips with classic boats and the docks full of spectators.

Mark Engstrom and John Mason planned and delivered a weekend of fun boating (to a lakeside dinner on Friday night), time with old friends and many new classic boat friends, and a spectacular show for hundreds of spectators. The variety of boats ranging from 1931 Mahogany through a 2020 fiberglass with a classic name and classic lines.
Of course, Jenni Webber and Mary Mason were working right alongside the guys. Becky and Jerry Caddell brought the Heartland Classics Ship Store which drew a lot of attention. Ken Everett provided extra help at the retrieval ramp.

Oh ... the stories, better than fish tales
