PATUXENT SMALL CRAFT GUILD ANNOUNCES WINNER OF CANOE RAFFLE

The Calvert Marine Museum Patuxent Small Craft Guild (PSCG) maintains the historic boats in the museum’s collection, and preserves the art and skills of wooden boat building. These volunteers build and raffle a canoe each year to benefit on-going activities of the Guild.

The winner of the 2015 canoe was Squadron Leader Simon Greig of the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF), stationed at Naval Air Station Patuxent River. Greig and his family are returning to Australia and are thrilled to take this unique memento of their time in Southern Maryland.

There were over 3,000 tickets sold last year at the museum’s annual events, including the Maritime Festival, Patuxent River Appreciation Days and the summer concerts. The winning ticket was bought at the Barenaked Ladies concert in July.

The 2016 canoe is on display in the Exhibition Building and tickets are on sale now for $1 each or six for $5 in the Museum Store or at the Patuxent Small Craft Center. They will be available at the museum’s annual events and 2016 summer concerts. The raffle winner will be announced in late November.
