Our April meeting was a great success and we were pleased to see so many members in attendance for the excellent slide show put on by Barry Andersen and Jack Heintz. Barry showed slides of scrap tows in the Welland and of the construction of CANADIAN OLYMPIC, while Jack presented photos taken at various locations on European waterways. We thank each of these gentlemen for their efforts and look forward to seeing more of their work in the near future.

By the time these pages reach most of our readers, our Annual Dinner Meeting will have come and gone. We had a good number of our out-of-town members in attendance and if you were not there, you missed a good dinner and an outstanding show presented by Peter Worden. Our thanks to Pete for coming all the way from the Detroit area to address the assembled faithful.

Our dinner meeting was the last formal meeting of this season and although many of us will meet along the banks of the Welland Canal or the St. Clair or St. Mary's Rivers during the summer months, we will not get together again officially until October. Until then, all best wishes for a happy summer of boatwatching. Remember that we will be sending a "Scanner" your way around the beginning of August.

In the New Member Department, a hearty welcome goes out to Capt. Robert A. Sanderson of Windsor. Capt. Sanderson is master of the tug PRESCOTONT.
