Shipwrecks/2010 was held on Saturday, March 13, 2010. We had approximately 450 people in attendance. For 2010, we had 107 door prizes donated ($8.400.00 value) 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 $1015.00 was raised for the project and three prizes of $509.00 / $305.00 / $204.00 given out.  Our thanks to the FEURU for their contribution and effort.
