Saturday, October 9th – Atwood Lake Meet Although we have a couple other AOMCI / ACBS outings before Atwood, I wanted to get the reminder out that it is coming up Oct 9th !  Mike & Judy Seachrist are our hosts and never disappoint, both from the standpoint of a great Lake to have a meet on and their usual over and above lunch they provide !

The lake has a 25hp limit but that’s plenty of power to keep most of us happy so figure out what Mercury beater you can hang on the transom to show these boys from the dark side what really runs cool !  And of course bring a couple of those beauties you have to show and tell about !  

If you plan on attending please RSVP Mike or me so we’ll know how many are coming !  If you came to the Leesville Meet you most likely drove right past Atwood lake !

Location is directly off Rt. 212


  • “Gary’s Garage” – Unless there is a special event or “meet” scheduled, the Western Reserve Chapter has weekly meetings at Gary Orloff’s garage, at 9:00 A.M. every Wednesday morning. Bring a project motor (or just bring yourself), and experience what membership in an AOMCI local Chapter can do for you!
