Samantha Rose and Katherine Richmond off the line in yesterdays race.
Planning is underway for the 22nd Annual Goods & Services Auction! Don’t miss this great night of fun and great deals! Don’t forget to check-out the on-line Auction at CapeAnnChamber.cmarket.com (on-line Auction website to be activated in June 2009).
Items featured in the On-Line Auction will be marked with an “On-Line Auction Icon”. Click the icon to go to the On-Line Auction.
The Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce is grateful to the hundreds of generous donors who support the auction and provide bidders such fabulous options.
Derby was a blast as usual although I was exhausted and didn’t get the interviews that I really enjoy doing because I just didn’t have the energy.
The Let Er Go is the seine boat for the Plan B. The seine boat is loaded up on the stern of the Plan B through the slot where the guy in the orange shirt is standing. When they approach the school of herring the Plan B will lower the Let Er Go into the water. The Let Er Go will set the seine in a circle around the school as quickly as possible. A seine net creates a cylinder in the water around the school. Then the net is pursed up at the bottom and makes the net from a cylinder into a purse (hopefully with the fish caught inside).
Thanks, Jay! That was great!
