|Karl Krompholz, Pat Householder, and Dick Gonzalez receive the Traveling Dolphins from Bremerton Base Vice Commander Steve Corcoran|
The ‘rules’ are that the base wishing to capture the Traveling Dolphins must make a visit to the base holding the dolphins at their monthly meeting with at least three base members, one of whom must be a current base officer. As part of the turnover, the receiving base members relate a personal ‘sea story’ to the base members present. In the case of two bases attempting to capture the Traveling Dolphins, the one with the most members present wins. If there is a tied number of members, a coin toss determines the winner.
The Traveling Dolphins started with South Sound Base and were first captured by Bremerton Base, then by Olympic Peninsula Base, then returned to Bremerton Base, and now to Seattle Base.
You can be sure there will be a ‘raid’ on Seattle Base to capture the Traveling Dolphins again, maybe as early as our May meeting.
