Dedicated to those who love and care for Vintage, Classic Boats in America’s Heartland

The 2022 Lake of the Ozarks (LOTO) Classic Boat Rendezvous
May 12-15, 2022 @ Hawks Landing Resort

 

 

This 2022 LOTO event was truly a RENDEZVOUS where friends gathered to use their classic boats and enjoy spring in the Ozarks. There was time to get to know each other.  It was not a public show, but rather an event planned for the enjoyment of our own members.

If you were there, is it the cruising that you’ll remember? 

Or will your memories flash first to the sit-arounds with smores and storytelling?

You always feel welcomed at a Heartland event!

THANKS to Mark Engstrom and Jenni Webber and also John and Mary Mason for planning this whole Rendezvous which had something for everyone in a relaxed fun filled weekend.

Mark and Jenni in Island Girl were IT in a game of Hide & Seek with boats on the lake.  And John is now known as the “consumate storyteller”.

All ages had a great time and the sign-up for next year has already begun.

An active group of Classic Boat boaters live around Lake of the Ozarks.  They frequently meet for coffee and to share expertise and stories.
