This is a collection of Friday,Saturday and Sunday's Greasy Pole contests that I slapped together.
It's not "soda" and not "pop" or even "soda pop" it's "tonic"!
It's a "rotary" not a "roundabout"!
"Going up the line" is a term used when leaving the island!
A "jigga"is a homemade powerless go-cart!
It's not "Break Time or Coffee Break" it's "Mug-up"!
It's not a "water fountain" it's a "Bubbla"!

For Sunday's festivities I headed down to the beach. High tide and a big crowd resulted in wet feet and bumping into people I hadn't seen in years. With many more photos to go here's today's fun!
What a day,the harbor was packed with boats as the crowds filled the beach. I headed out around 3:15 and couldn't find a place to anchor ! Myself along with talented photographer Mark Teiwes "rafted up" to a string of boats just outside the pole. We had to jump from boat to boat to get a better view and I'm telling you my knees and back is killing me! My biggest regret is that I was moving to get a better view when the flag was taken. I got the shot but it was too blury. Anyway I took so many photos I'll post the rest along with a controversy later on.
