The 2021 LOTO Classic Boat & Engine Rendezvous
May 14-15, 2021
Margaritaville at Lake of the Ozarks
1. Old timers and newbies still came together
2. There were windows for cruising in calm water and no rain – especially Friday evening.
3. The Saturday show still drew spectators
… other boats and scenes from the weekend …
4. Great events happen because of great planning! Thanks to Mark Engstrom and John Mason along with Jenni Webber and Mary Mason.
(That’s a pirate’s hat on John Mason – not a shock of gray hair from this event.)
Sunday Breakfast at Mark Engstrom’s home was such a fine way to end the LOTO event. We got to visit the chickens, the shop, the dogs, and his charming lake house and then visit on the dock – a dock for boats and a living space for cooking, dining, and visiting. And Jenni had laid out a delicious, beautiful breakfast buffet.
Owning a classic boat is a ticket to many things besides maintenance. There’s pride in owning a piece of unique history. Each boat has a story and each guardian has their own story full of memories and dreams. It’s also a ticket to fun events with classic friends around the country.
The event at Lake of the Ozarks allowed classic boat enthusiasts to share those stories and use their boats. Thanks are owed to Mark Engstrom, John Mason, Jenni Webber, Mary Mason, and others of the LOTO area who made this fun weekend a success.
