Ravens Roost #4 descended on Ocean City from May 31st through

weather was great this year! Sun was soaked-up and suds were slurped by
all at the beach.
Thanks to the following people for their time and effort in
preparation for and during the convention:

leash! Thanks to the following volunteers that helped with the
conception and construction of the float: Frosty & Ann Volmer, Steve
Shinham, Missy Kolman, Bob Caldwell, Mandy Young, Mitch Hooper, and anyone I
Karaoke - Thanks again to Katie Pearl for belting-out
some Shania Twain on Friday night - though once again the DJ didn't have her
requested song! Thought we had another winner this year, but competition

Pacen/Lee Todd and Frosty Volmer/Dave Miller for representing Roost #4 in

together! Thanks to Anna, Missy, Leslie, Mitch, and everyone else who pitched-in for
