Good old fashioned Tug of War (our fun planned for tomorrow)

There's a "Tug of War" event going on tomorrow that we'll be going to and if the weather isn't too horrible it will be a blast!! Do you guys know what a tug of war is?? If you do, there is a little twist on this one, it's across the water with the opposing tugging teams on either side!!

Here's the link to the event, http://www.themre.org/tug2008/index.html it will explain more and you'll see exactly what we'll be doing, Mike may even get in on being a "tugger" LOL! Alot of the proceeds from the event will go to Aaralyn's school Thumbs Up

This has been going on for many years, even though Eastport is actually part of the city of Annapolis, the Eastportians (myself being one now Very Happy ) want Eastport to be it's own little city, The Maritime Republic of Eastport vs Annapolis, it's an ongoing humorous rival going way back.

here's a link that has a little history about it if you're interested

Tug-o-war is a big thing up here, we have teams who have made the Birtish championships Smile

Yep, it turned out to be a great afternoon weather and other wise... just uploading some pics and video now Wink

No one got wet, darn it!! and my side (Eastport) lost, I think we got 2 of the 6 tugs they did and Annapolis won the rest of them Bad! It was all in good fun though. Mike didn't get to pull because they already had the teams established. He's still down there LOL, Ren and the kids and I came back a little bit ago (she didn't end up working so she went with us too!)

I'll post some pics in a little bit....

Soon as I get the kid's belly filled up I'll post the pics... Mikey's so funny, he was (so he thought) taking pics of Aaralyn and I dancing and I had taken a video of her just before that so there's about 5 little mini movies a millisecond long to upload, doing it to have the images for pictures though otherwise I would've deleted them Rolling Eyes, he had no idea it was on the video taker...
