May 6, 2012 was another successful tournament day for Andy and Sheree Wess at the Lakeside Motel and Cabins in East Winthrop. As seen in the photos below, lined up near the buoy just off Island Park, 86 boats with anxious fishermen awaited the 8am call to shove off. One or two boats at a time then headed out to a favorite fishing spot in an attempt to lure on board a bag full of fish that would reel in a $3,000 first prize.
The best result of the day, however, was the final total raised for Maine Special Olympics. Our Commodore, who presented the annual CYC Donation of $500 at the event, heard from Peter Selwood that the outcome should exceed $14,000, a considerable increase over last year. Look carefully at the photos to see the major sponsors who made this year's event such a success.
