St. Patrick’s Day Festivities

On Saturday, March 15th, 2003, St. Patrick’s Day festivities will begin at the Shamrock at 1:00 PM.

There will be the Shopping Cart Race (5-man Teams); the traditional Tug-O-War between the Fishchockers and the Hayseeders; and both a Women’s and Men’s Fish Toss. Live fish will no longer be sanctioned for this event.

The Fish Stomp will use 4-person teams, whereas the much discussed Precision Poking will use the easier-to-form 2-person teams.

This year entries in the annual Limerick Contest will no longer have to confine their subject to cheese, although the
King and Queen contestants will each have to name at least seven varieties (Velveeta doesn’t count.) Quick: name a half-dozen words that rhyme with shillalah.

Note: Lots of Pictures from the Event are in the April 2003 Beacon.
