A total of $1214.00 was raised for the project and three prizes of $607.00 / $364.20 / $242.20 given out. Our thanks to the FEURU for their contribution and effort.
CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS- SHIPWRECKS/2012
We are now in the planning stages for our 18th annual one-day symposium on shipwrecks, Shipwrecks/2012 . We are requesting presentations in either of 2 categories:
Primary presentations may be up to 45 minutes in length, but most are approximately 20 - 25 minutes, with additional time allotted for question and answer. Live commentary is preferred to "canned" packages.
Short, 5 minute maximum, presentations (primarily to introduce new topics or presenters) are also being requested.
All presentations should be shipwreck-related and we try for an even split between recreational and technical topics.
Please forward a brief overview of your presentation and a brief biographical sketch to the Shipwrecks Committee at ; InfoShipwrecks
