Congratulations!! And thanks to all who participated in the flotilla, providing us all with some exciting summer entertainment. And if you are wondering, like a lot of us are, how the winners of the flotilla are chosen, here’s how it works. The board member in charge of the flotilla selects various people from around the lake to vote. Nobody knows who is chosen (unless they tell) and those chosen are different people each year. After the flotilla, the chairperson contacts the judges, tallies their choices for 1st – 3rd place, and then the awards are presented to the winners at 4:00pm at the public access. Mystery solved!
