Shipwrecks/2007 was held Saturday, March 31, 2007. We had approximately 430 people in attendance. For 2007, we had 87 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 $863.00 was raised for the project and three prizes of $432.00 / $259.00 / $172.00 given out. Our thanks to the FEURU for their contribution and effort.
