OAC Name a Great White Shark Contest

In December of 2012, following Greg Skomal’s awesome presentation at the OAC, the Board of Directors voted in favor of a $500 donation to Greg’s Shark Research program. In return, Greg promised to name a shark tagged in the future on our behalf. We would like our youth members (15 and under) to submit a proposed name (1 submission per youth) to our club manager at [email protected] or 508-420-4336 by Friday May 10th. The winner will be announced at Youth Striper Night the following Friday May 17th.
