Subject: RE: Update: Portland (Maine) Maritime Festival
we're both still pinching ourselves at how well it all went last weekend.

By rights we should have had at least one "oh shit!" moment but we didn't.

We have learned a lot from last week and are now starting to think about what will happen next year. We will choose people to help who have expertise in specific areas - we already have a few people who we know are good at publicity and whose experience will be drawn upon. We know that we can trust those people to do the job and that will be one less task for us.

First thing is sponsorship. We already have a couple of sponsors and will be looking around the area to see who we can persuade to come on board as well.

Many thanks, once again to all those who made it such a memorable day for all of us.
