Thanks to all who participated in our Tie-One-On event last Friday, Feb 22, especially the many new members who helped-out. This was a fun time, blended with a little bit of boater education, and also a great mixer because it encouraged participants to wander about learning from other members.

Five members tied for second-place. They each received a new 25 foot dock line from Sampson Rope. Christine Smith of David B fame won the event, being the only member who got all five knots and all five wines right. Christine also got a Sampson dock line and a bottle of wine of her choice. She chose the 2010 Italian Montepulciano. A good wine.

Watch for photos on the BYC Photo Gallery of our website.
