If the weather holds and we go to Midway...
Win a $30.00 gift certificate to Best Buy
(exp. 12/11/04). All you have to do is have the
closest guess for when the first line is passed ashore
in Midway. The Furuno GPS Navigator on the bridge will
be the official clock. A single guess will only cost
$1.00; while $5.00 will get you six guesses. Each
guess should be in hours, minutes, and seconds. The
current ETA to Midway is October 1st sometime around
1400. NOTE: All guesses may be charged to your Ship
Store bill so you don't have to bring any money at this
time. All proceeds go directly to the Ship Store fund
so purchase your guesses today. Good luck.
Movies for this evening: (Both will start at 1730 and
again at 2000.)
