Photo contests, horse genealogy, and a friendly (crew) competition

The Triumphant return of Photo Friday on Facebook already is a success, but we would like you to help make it even more successful by both participating and sharing your favorite photos of Ocean City and the surrounding area. For those of you who already have participated, make sure to share your photo to get the most votes. Winning this contest is in the hands of the participants. First take a great photo and then let everyone know about it. There are only 50 or so likes separating first and last place so it still is anybody’s game.

This week a local historian provided some insight into the Assateague Pony origins in celebration of the annual pony penning that takes place between Assateague and Chincoteague islands. He made quite a case for his angle, while taking the others seriously. It’s a long but pleasant read.

OCBP Crew Competition

The Ocean City Beach Patrol takes and afternoon to both show off their skills to the public and also blow of a little competitive steam in the annual OCBP Crew Comps. Each section of the beach is broken up into the responsibility of different crews. Over the course of the summer the crews develop a bond both with the people who frequent their section of the beach regularly as well as with one another.

Take a walk on the Boardwalk

After the crew competition, we took a little stroll on the Boardwalk, which always works great as a Facebook live post. Make sure to follow us if you don’t already, and feel free to reach out and let us know if you want us to cover something live that we haven’t already.
