Wreck Photos sought for AGM...

In an effort to remind our members what a rich variety of wrecks we enjoy in and around Kingston, it's planned to stage a photographic exhibition at the AGM. This will be open to the public after the event.

Please submit your best pictures, in the highest resolution possible, to me (mike.hill@mac.com) as soon as possible. We're imposing a limit of three pictures per person to give everyone a chance to have their work seen.

All images displayed will be fully credited and their copyright maintained. Post processed pictures will be accepted.

Guenter's Pictures now online..

Members may be interested to see some images of Guenter's wreck taken late last month. They're on our Flickr site, which can be accessed from this page - see the links below right.

If this wreck interests you, it's well worth reading a relatively accurate account of its situation in an article from the Kingston Whig Standard dated December 1st. Click here to read the piece.

AGM Date Confirmed...

The date set for POW's Annual General Meeting some time ago is confirmed as Saturday, January 24th, 2009. It will take place in the Marine Museum of the Great Lakes in Kingston, beginning at 2 pm.

There will be an opportunity before the meeting - at 1:30 pm - for members who have not had a chance to pay their annual subscriptions to do so. Remember - only current members have voting rights at the AGM.

This meeting is one to attend - the coming year should be a busy and exciting one for POW - make sure you're a part of it...

War of 1812 Shipwreck Booklet Available...

The book launch for the new publication prepared by Jonathan Moore for the series sponsored by the Cataraqui Archaeological Research Foundation took place in Kingston yesterday. Jonathan gave an excellent, richly illustrated presentation on the War of 1812 Shipwrecks in Kingston, on which he is a leading authority. His new book (ISBN: 978-0-9783359-2-2) was available for sale at C$ 7-95. The 30 page soft-cover work has many wonderful images that expand understanding of Kingston's local shipwrecks of the period concerned.

Copies of the book will be available from CARF (call 613 542 3483) at 611 Princess Street, Kingston, and probably also the Marine Museum of the Great Lakes at 55 Ontario Street.
