Annapolis, MD
Event Date:  Saturday, September 15, 2018
It is with deep regret the Annapolis Wish-A-Fish Foundation has to cancel the September event scheduled for this Saturday. We waited until last possible minute – hoping for a better weather forecast, but it was not to be. The safety of the families and volunteer boat owners is our top priority. Northeast winds of 15 knots – gusting to 20 are predicted on Saturday. This makes for a 2 to 3 foot waves in the bay, which would not be at all safe or comfortable for the families. Adding to our decision was the state of emergency issued by Governor Hogan – this prompted some volunteer boat owners to have their boats pulled from water as precaution. The final piece of this tough decision was the opening of the flood gates at the Conowingo dam again. This will send a lot of muddy water and dangerous debris down the bay. Some of our volunteer boat owners would be making a 15-25 mile trip to and from Annapolis under hazardous conditions.

The Annapolis event WILL NOT be rescheduled this year, but look for us again next year.
