Snood Fest V Feb. 22, 2009
Yes it's 2009 not 2008,,,I typed the wrong year in the title,,Sorry:confused:

SnoodFest is an annual gathering of the TF Crabbing Board membership at the Harewood Park Community hall off Ebeneezer Road (near Chase, MD) every Feb.
We gather there to share crabbing experiences, techniques, stories, etc., to learn what's new on the crabbing scene, to feast on some of MD's finest delicacies and to break the winter boredom.
Generally around a hundred people show up (give or take another hundred or so) and everyone has a great time.
There are many members of this board with many years of crabbing experience, both recreational and commercial, and a wealth of information they are willing to share. We learned a lot at the last events and hope to learn more again this year.
No one leaves without learning something they find of value to themselves.
We have show and tell sessions and various demonstrations all relating to crabbing. There's opportunities to purchase materials for our favorite sport such as Soft Lay, Bungee, Topless traps, baskets, etc., etc.
It's the perfect opportunity to put a face to a name and make new friends and greet old friends.
Some bring projects they are working on ....
Some bring problems they need help in solving...
Just about everyone brings a covered dish of some kind for all to share.
Everyone is expected to bring their own beverage and to pitch in at clean-up time at the close of the event.

Since the hall is rented the event is held rain or shine.
We always seem to have an awesome menu of various seafood items and wild game as well as many delicious desserts.
It's an event that you don't want to miss
