Deep Creek Marina Lakeside Club
The Second Annual Boat Parade will be held on Saturday, July 5th, starting from the McHenry cove and ending at Dutch’s at Silver Tree. The flotilla of boats will get underway around 5pm and proceed in single file past a number of judging stations along the route. Spectators at the judging stations will vote for their favorite boats, and prizes will be awarded in a number of categories, with a Grand Prize consisting of a custom-designed Winner’s Pennant and trophy. Entrants in the parade will need to pay a MINIMUM $50 registration fee at the Grand Marshal’s boat anchored off the in the McHenry cove, and the number of entries are limited, so be sure to pre-register to ensure your spot.
Here are the details: There will be a MINIMUM $50/boat entry fee. The winner of the Parade Pennant and trophy will be the boat that collects the most donations – both through sponsorships and votes – so if you get more sponsors for your boat, you’ll start with more votes. Once registered, each entered boat will receive a large reflective sign with their entry number. The parade will start at in the McHenry Cove (there will be the Grand Marshall boat there to enter your boat) and proceed to Silver Tree, passing a number of judging stations along the way – at each station, spectators will vote for their favorite boats by placing a cash donation into the appropriate jar with the boat’s number. The motto for voting is “Vote early, vote often and vote BIG!” The boat with the most “votes” wins! The winner will receive a trophy and a custom-designed pennant to display on your boat. Runners-up will also eceive prizes. We will be limited to 40 entries this year, so print off the form and pre-register to secure your spot!
