Shipwrecks/2008 was held Saturday, April 5, 2008.  We had approximately 470 people in attendance.  For 2008, we had 77 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 $804.00 was raised for the project and three prizes of $402.00 / $241.20 / $160.80 given out.  Our thanks to the FEURU for their contribution and effort.
