The Hoopers Island Volunteer Fire Co. will host its annual Watermen’s Rodeo boat docking contest on Sunday, Sept. 12. Watermen will compete against each other by backing their boats into a slip, as they do every day for work. After backing into the slip, the watermen will hoop four lines on four separate poles. The fastest times win and there will be a team competition and a youth competition too. The grand finale will be everyone competing against each other for the fastest overall time.
There will be t-shirts for sale, raffles, and food and drinks available. Proceeds benefit the Hoopers Island Volunteer Fire Company. No outside coolers or drinks will be allowed. For more information call 410-397-3631 / 410-397-3311 or watch their Facebook page.
