Sunday after the boat show is dedicated to the participants, chapter members and volunteers who make this big event successful. In 1965 the house and 1,975 acres of the estate were acquired by the California State Park System. As the parade of wooden boats made their way up the lake, it was a perfect opportunity to see the boats on the water and grab a few shots from the aft cockpit. For the last 29 years, Roy has created the art work for every Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance poster, which are displayed at Sierra Boat Company. Approximately 250 people attended the Sunday picnic and awards presentation at Sugar Pine Point, and the individual awards were on display prior to the ceremony. One of the sponsors of this years South Tahoe Wooden Boat Classic is Korbel & Woodford Reserve who provided the Korbel California Champagne for all the award winners. The historic Sugar Pine Point grounds is just a perfect venue for the picnic and awards presentation, the property is almost like a small amphitheatre offering spectacular views of Lake Tahoe and the wooden boats while enjoying the catered picnic lunch. Smiles all around for the family enjoying their classic wooden boat on one of the most beautiful lakes on the planet. In the morning the boats leave the Tahoe Keys Marina and run up Lake Tahoe for a picnic and the awards ceremony which is held on the amazing grounds of the former Ehrman Estate.


Today the house is maintained as a house museum and as an example of the opulent tradition in Tahoe summer homes.
We were also joined by a photographer who was gathering images of the event throughout the day, and as you can see he had some serious camera equipment. She’s an original Lake Tahoe boat which was shipped from the Chris-Craft factory in Algonac to nearby Truckee, Calfornia in 1956. Roy is very active with both the South Tahoe event as well as the Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance which is held up the lake at Sierra Boat in Carnelian Bay in a few weeks. Roy has invited Matt & I to join him at his lake house in nearby Homewood during this years Concours, which will certainly make for an interesting story on Woody Boater. Here’s Ryan Barella (Korbel Market Brand Manager) and his lovely wife who were on hand for the awards ceremony. We were also joined by fellow Woody Boater and Chris-Craft Antique Boat Club Director Brian Robinson. The Rudloff’s use their boat every chance they get, and have logged over 1,100 hours on her over the last 19 years, for everyting from water skiing, tubing, wake boarding and evening dinner cruises which is great to see.
We have a cool story about the Sugar Pine Point Estate and one of the original wooden boats that remains on the property, but that’s for another day, later this week. Fellow Woody Boaters Dave Triano and his son Andrew presented the award on behalf of the Thunderbird Crew.
Matt has an ability to spin a great tale and although he can’t spell at 5 in the morning when he writes most of his blog entries, he sure can bring a smile to your face with his wit and humour.


The entire picnic and awards presentation was simply a great experience, and very well organized by the chapter and the countless volunteers – Thanks to everyone for a fun, memorable day.
Rudy is with Northwest Classic Boats, the folks who recently completed the remarkable restoration on Don Ayers Riva Ariston.
Hellman began buying property at Sugar Pine Point and by 1913 had acquired nearly 2000 acres.
His grand but informal summer home, called Pine Lodge, was completed in 1903 and was considered to be one of the finest in the high Sierra. His daughter, Florence Hellman Ehrman inherited the estate and she and her husband Sydney spent many summers there entertaining family and friends.

The estate is located along the shores of Lake Tahoe which offers some spectacular views of the lake.
