2012 Fish Box Derby Registration and Weigh In Photos From Rick Isaacs

Hi Joey,

Gloucester Gig Rowers get a new Gig! From Rick Isaacs

Hi Joey,

Gloucester Gig Rowers held our christening and launching party on Sunday evening, 8 Jul for our new 32′ Cornish Pilot Gig, custom-built for us by the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum’s Champlain Longboats School  http://www.lcmm.org/education/champlain_longboats.htm .  Here are a few pictures of our party party to celebrate the arrival of our new boat, and christen her.  She can be seen moored at the Harriet Webster Pier at Gloucester Maritime, on Harbor Loop.

The boat’s name is the "Annie B", and one picture shows Annie Banks, her namesake and one of the chief founders of Gloucester Gig Rowers, breaking the traditional bottle of champaign over her bow.

Sorry this took a while – I needed to secure the club’s approval for all of these mug shots to be published before sending this.  We would be grateful for any coverage which you could provide us!

All best,

Rick Isaacs

Not much happening in Gloucester these days is there? 

Nothing to do, ho hum. Smile  Bahahahahahahah!

Hey you, yeah you sitting in that chair wishing you were here in the middle of the action! The fun isn’t over yet!  We still have a Block Party right around the corner and a whole lot more fun stuff coming up.  The fun doesn’t stop just because labor Day is over.  This town has some killer community event every single weekend of the year.  You need help with accommodations or finding out stuff to do?  Check out The Chamber of Commerce Website or Discover Gloucester or GloucesterMa.com to get the latest skinny on what’s happening round town.  Or of course you could check out our little ol blog.
