The day dawned grey, overcast and cold. The chill wind off Lake Huron was unforgiving. After a week of cold, rain- filled days the forecasted promise of sunshine was no where in sight. It was 2 degrees at 5:30 AM at the Registration Tent when the ladies arrived to get ready to welcome the first wave of eager event participants at 6:00 AM.

A little later Doug Pedwell, on behalf of the HFBF Committee paid tribute to some of its generous sponsors with a special breakfast and presentation in the warmish Visitor’s Centre.

Not all of our sponsors were there, but those that were  received a “Thank You Plaque” with a beautiful photo of a Piping Plover.
