Contest Announcement: Dale and Debbie...soon to be inducted in the FYC (BJ and Jeremy's Uncle and Aunt)...have had a wonderful suggestion.... That we have a photo contest! So here is the "official announcement" and the rules...such as they are. Let the submitting begin for our First Annual Photo Contest!

1. The photo must be cruising/sailing/boating/marine oriented. This can include boats, scenery, mammals, fauna, fish, people etc. The photo must have been taken from (and including) Thanksgiving 2004 until close of contest 5:14 PM November 15, 2005.

2. We will have a special section on the website to post the photos.

3. You may have up to three photo's entered at any time. You may remove photo's if you feel you have a "better" one. However, you cannot remove a photo without replacing it! The photo's must be titled and have a complete description included at submission.

4. We will have a dis-interested anonymous panel decide the winners. (This is to avoid bribery and other nefarious acts!)

5. All person's entering the contest will submit a $5 entry fee per photo into the "prize pot." Entry fee's will be collected throughout the year. You may submit a photo without an entry fee, but must pay-up prior to the judging.

6. The winner will receive a prize purchased with the entry fees.

7. The winner will be announced at the 2005 Blake Island Thanksgiving Celebration.
