Thank you for your understanding and continuing support!
Great Lakes Grillers (Nathan’s famous hot dog brand) and WPIB Radio presented a five-hundred-dollar check to the Put-in-bay Senior Class on Monday, 15 October 2018, for their fund raising efforts during the 2018 Bash on the Bay. Pictured are senior class advisor Linda Rentz; Patrick Myers from WPIB radio; PiB seniors Lauren Peters, Mathew Stacy, Max Schneider, Jack Booker; and Jim and Debbie Menezac of Great Lakes Grillers.
Put-in-Bay School Sailing Team ventured out in The Bay this morning to continue their 2018 training. Alex, Nora, Tali, Kate, Max, Alice, Macy, Emil, Joe, and Hope (students in grades 7 through 11), handled the 420’s in southerly 10-knot winds and brilliant sunlight.
Safety in sailing is paramount; in addition to life jackets, helmets and layered clothing, team sailors follow the “100 Rule.” This rule requires the combined water and air temperatures to be at least 100 degrees. Today’s Put-in-Bay air temperature is 51°F, and the water temperature is 63°F.
Oktoberfest Put-in-Bay, celebrated under sunny skies and a high temperature of 54°F, generated good attendance. Boaters braved brisk southwest winds to fill the public docks as well as Park Place Boat Club. Golf carts lined Delaware Avenue, and the Oktoberfest tent teemed with visitors enjoying authentic German fare and music. The Chamber of Commerce festival continues on Sunday, 14 October 2018, from noon to 5pm.
