The Blackhawk Chapter, featuring Lars Bergersen, will be holding a workshop at Bergersen Boat Co.

Lars is an expert wood boat restorer who learned the trade as an apprentice at Streblow Custom Boats under the “nothing less than perfection” mentorship of the late great Randy Streblow.

Lars is currently working on several different boats in his shop in various stages of restoration. He will be demonstrating several of his restoration techniques along with answering any questions you may have.

A light lunch, complements of the Blackhawk Chapter and Bergerson Boat Co., will follow the presentation around noon. All members and guests of ALL ages are welcome to attend.
