Both Gudgeon Base and Tautog Base challenged to recapture the Dolphin Plaque taken by Perch Base during their visit to Gudgeon Base's picnic last August. The Dolphin Plaque is captured when at least 3 members, including an officer, of an Arizona Base visit another Base's meeting AND one visiting member tells a Sea Story.
Bill Larime (Gudgeon Base) and Denny Honodel (Tautog Base) both told great sea stories, but Tautog won the Dolphin Plaque.
