Shipwrecks/2006 was held Saturday, March 25, 2006. We had approximately 450 people in attendance. For 2006, we had 80 door prizes (including regulators & dive charters) 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 $750.00 was raised for the project and three prizes of $375.00 / $225.00 / $150.00 given out. Our thanks to the FEURU for their contribution and effort.
For our twelfth annual Shipwrecks Symposium, the Niagara Divers’ Association was very pleased to present:
