"Shipwrecks/2012"was held on Saturday, March 31, 2012. We had approximately 550 people in attendance. For 2012, we had 138 door prizes donated ($8486.00 value) which are now listed on the web site along with the contributors and winners' names.
The Fort Erie Underwater Recovery Unit once again held a 50/50 draw with proceeds going to the Lake Erie (Eastern Basin) Mooring Project. A total of $861.00 was raised for the project and three prizes of $430.50 / $258.30 / $172.20 given out.
An additional $240 was raised through the sale of "Woame Posters" which were donated by Les Pullen.
Our thanks to the FEURU and Les for
their contributions to the Mooring Project.
CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS- SHIPWRECKS/2013
We are now in the planning stages for our 19th annual one-day symposium on shipwrecks, Shipwrecks/2013 . 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; InfoShipwrec
