Ron Fennel, Chairman, TEAM Georgia, speaks about the boating safety and the importance of designating a skipper.
Lee Johnson signs the first Safe Boating Designated SKipper pledge of the season.
Get Onboard - Right now, over 300,000 Georgia boat owners are preparing to cast-off for a summer of fun on the water. For almost a decade, they've been taking TEAM Georgia afloat with them through the TEAM Georgia Safe Boating program. Last year there were 147 boating accidents and 19 boating accident related fatalities in Georgia and DNR Conservation Rangers made 187 boating under the influence arrests.
In partnership with Georgia Department of Natural Resources, TEAM Georgia reminds boaters to take the rules of the road afloat - designate a skipper, watch your speed and know Georgia's boating laws. It's time to make a bigger splash.
Here's How it Works
Georgia boaters are encouraged to be the Designated Skipper by taking the safe boating pledge. Pledge forms are available at participating Anheuser-Busch retailers, or you can download the pledge form here. Everyone taking the pledge will be registered to win a grand prize. The grand prize drawing will be held on September 10, 2012.
Thank you for being the Designated Skipper! The TEAM Georgia Safe Boating Campaign is sponsored by Anheuser-Busch wholesalers: Atlanta Beverage, Dender Distributing, Eagle Rock Distributing and Leon Farmer Company.
