2015 Photo Contest ends this month!
The 2015 Mariners Trail Photo Contest will be ending at the end of September. The rules are quite similar to those in previous years, although only photos are being accepted this year. As before, the 13 winning pictures will be used in the 2016 Trail calendar. Larry Corrado, Calendar Committee member, said that the committee would like to see more pictures showing action along the Trail, people actually using Mariners Trail. He mentioned, however, that photographers should get the permission to enter the photo from any recognizable people in their photos.
A pdf version of the Rules/Entry Form for the contest is available here. The form can be printed, filled in, and sent in with submissions. Those wishing to email entries can simply provide the same information as on the form in the body of the email message. Anyone with questions about submitting pictures can contact committee member Kelly Keedy by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (920-645-7786). Photos must be submitted by September 30.
Brush cleanup along the Trail
On August 30, a group of FOMT members spent the foggy morning clearing brush from alongside Mariners Trail in the area of the Thiede St. and Davis St. Waysides. Those working on the project included Lee Kummer, Bill Martin, Jim and Carolyn Rabata, Elizabeth and Stanley Palmer, Ted Zigmunt, and Dennis Larsen. Thank you so much to all of you. Thanks also go to Bill Martin and Lee Kummer for organizing the cleanup, and Judy Goodchild and the City of Two Rivers Parks crew that cleared away the cut branches.
Those interested in helping with future Trail brush cleaups should contact FOMT at MarinersTrail@gmail.com.
