On a brisk December Saturday sixty-two members and guests attended the December 10th luncheon at the Damariscotta River Grill in Damariscotta, Maine. This event, one of our most popular, may have set the attendance record for a standalone GMP gam. In the privacy of the entire second floor of the restaurant there was plenty of time to take advantage of the bar and to mingle before lunch orders were taken. Following lunch Post Captain Maggie Salter welcomed the group, especially the newest members Dale Bruce, Gene Gardner (who couldn’t attend), and Gust Stringos. Then after describing the future GMP events that she has planned she introduced Boston Rear Commodore Bob Morris to present the 2014 Vilas Prize to Zdenka and Jack Griswold for their article "Kite Crossing the Indian Ocean from Indonesia to South Africa" which was published in the 2015 issue of Voyages, the first opportunity to present the prize since the completion of their circumnavigation.
