Save the Date! UBM’s 46th Upper Bay Decoy Show
The Upper Bay Museum is proud to present the 46th Upper Shore Decoy Show on October 18th – 19th at the North East Fire Hall on Mauldin Avenue in North East, Maryland. As with much of the museum activity this season, the show has taken a rebirth and has much in store for this anniversary year. Chairman Rick Bouchelle wants this show to be memorable.
The decoy show will open on October 18th from 3-5pm with a Boat School Demonstration, following with the preview party and benefit auction. Saturday, the show will be open from 9-5 and will be packed with demonstrations and activities. Kid’s activities will be available all day including paint their own duck silhouette. Also, feel free to bring your unidentified decoys to our expert, Vernon Bryant Sr.
Starting at 10:00 a.m. Frank Muller will be demonstrating how to make a canvas decoy which he is highly regarded for making.
12:00 P.M will be the old decoy competition organized by Jack Manning.( More details to come ) The rules are as follows:
- You may enter your decoy as early as 3:00 P.M. on Friday the 18th.
- Prizes of Plaques & Ribbons will be awarded following the judging at 12:00 P.M. on Saturday the 20th.
Following the competition, Vernon Bryant Jr will be demonstrating how to complete a duck taxidermy mount at 2:00 P.M. Then the boat school will then demonstrate.
Both the museum and boat school will be open special hours during the decoy show and volunteers will be available to give tours. We have invited local vineyards and orchards for tastings and to sell their local made products.
