Meeting Wednesday 31 July at 7:00 PDF Print E-mail

Hey Everybody,

Sorry for the short notice, but the next UASC meeting is this Wednesday
31 July, at the Chicago Maritime Society Museum, on the 6th floor of the 
Helix / LifeStorage building, 310 S. Racine at Jackson. As usual, light 
refreshments will start at 6:30, business at 7:00, and the main speaker 
at around 8:00.

This month's speaker will be our very own John Gerty, speaking on the 
Wooden Boat Show that was held recently at Mystic Seaport Museum in 
Mystic, Connecticut. Mystic is one of the premier maritime museums in 
the country. It has an active restoration and reproduction boatyard; 
displays include docked steam and sailing ships; work boats; plus dozens 
of buildings containing static displays of boats, models and historic 
artifacts. The wooden boats which were the focus of the boat show 
comprise vessels of all shapes and sizes, made by both professional boat 
shops and individual builders. John's presentation will focus primarily 
on the museum's holdings, but will also cover some of the other wooden 
boats entered for the boat show.

If you have any items that you would like added to the agenda, please 
let me know, particularly if you have materials to display on the screen 
as part of the discussion.

I believe there is at least one and possibly two volunteers to help with 
refreshments this month, but still some room for additional help, so if 
you would like to help out with refreshments, either this month or some 
other month, please contact Dan Kasberger,  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Thanks, and hope to see you on Wednesday,

Hey Everybody,

Sorry for the late notice, but the next meeting of UASC will be this 
Wednesday, June 26th, at the LifeStorage / Helix building, 310 S. Racine 
at Jackson. As usual, light refreshments will start at 6:30, business 
at 7:00, and the main speaker around 8:00.

Our speaker for this month's meeting will be Keith Pearson, Past 
President and Founding Member of UASC, speaking on the Wells Burt. Keith 
was one of the original discoverers of the Wells Burt, as part of A & T 
Recovery, back in 1988, and was then one of the major surveyors of the 
wreck as part of UASC's first big survey project in the late 1980s and 
early 1990s. Keith will talk about the history of the wreck, the 
condition it is in now, and lead a discussion of what if anything should 
be done about it next, 25 years after its original discovery by A & T.

If anyone has anything they would like put on the agenda, please let me 
know by return e-mail.

Thanks, and I hope to see you all there on Wednesday,

John
