A group of about 30 rabble-rousers from Eastport invaded City Council chambers on Monday to challenge Mayor Josh Cohen and the City of Annapolis to the annual Tug-O-War.
The "Slaughter Across the Water" will take place promptly at the "crack o'noon" on Nov. 3. The parties, which occur on both sides of the Compromise Street bridge, run from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m.
The Eastport teams will meet on Second Street at Spa Creek, and the Annapolis teams will meet at Susan Campbell Park.
“Although the tug is a competition for bragging rights on either side of the bridge, the event provides a great opportunity for the community to come together and have a good time supporting local organizations,” Cohen said.
The following organizations are this year’s benefactors.
- We Care and Friends
- Save the Coconuts
- The Polar Bear Plunge
- MainStreets Annapolis Partnership
- Eastport Elementary School
- The Maryland Wing of the US Air Force Auxiliary Civil Air Patrol
- Eastport Girls Club
- The Berie House
Editor's Note: Here at Patch we believe in transparency, which is why I feel I must disclose that I live in Annapolis. The Tug-O-War also falls on my birthday, and I plan to help the city defeat Eastport. You can help me defend our great city and join the side of the union by clicking the links below.

If you feel your conscience requires you to aid the rebels, I suppose you had better know where to find them.
