ver 150 years ago, Theodore Roosevelt — the 26th president of the United States — was born to a wealthy family that summered in Oyster Bay not far from the waterfront property that today bears his name. To honor his memory, community leaders organized a parade to celebrate his 125th birthday. The parade proved so successful that it provided the roots of what would become the Oyster Festival. Today the Oyster Festival is a much awaited annual event that consistently attracts approximately 200,000 plus visitors from along the East Coast. Its continued success is due to the dedication of members of the Oyster Bay Rotary who are committed to this event year-round and to the members of the Long Island business community who sponsor the event. They help cover the costs of the infrastructure of the festival such as the buses and cleanup.

Oyster Eating And Shucking Contest Held Saturday, October 13 at 2 p.m.

T

voice their interest in the contest to keep the contestants working at a good pace — be that shucking or downing oysters.

Oyster Shucking Contest The Oyster Shucking Contest rules include having a maximum of 10 contestants. They need shoulder room as they work to open the oysters. All the contestants must be over the age of 18. They are each provided with gloves, apron, knives, a name tag and Frank M. Flower & Sons, Inc. hat. Contestants may use their own equipment if approved by the chief judge. Some people like to use a familiar knife. One used pliers to break open the oysters as apposed to getting in with a knife and preying them open. Oysters must be completely severed from the shell, the muscles cut and oysters must be whole and not mutilated. They must look ready to serve. The time limit for shucking is 4 minutes. The Oyster Festival record for shucking is held by Rodney Dow, who continued on page 17

On the West End Avenue stage, contestants shuck oysters.

OYSTER FESTIVAL - ANTON COMMUNITY NEWSPAPERS - OCTOBER 2012

NFL PPK Long Island Championship Public can watch and then participate in the fun he NFL Punt, Pass & Kick Long Island Championship will take place during the Oyster Festival on Sunday, Oct. 14 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. on the artificial turf athletic field at Theodore Roosevelt Park. This free event has bleacher seating available for the public. “The Oyster Festival committee was looking for an opportunity to include the field as part of the Oyster Festival, as it is the centerpiece of Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park restoration. The NFL and TOB have been fantastic partners, and we are excited to add a youth athletic event to the festival, “said James Werner, event chair. “After the official competition, we will open up the Punt, Pass & Kick event to

T Oyster Food Court Specials The Oyster Festival is a project of the Rotary Club of Oyster Bay and they run the raw oyster booth. Because the raw oysters and fried oysters are favorites at the festival, they have earned a separate Oyster Food Court area to the left as you enter the park. There you will find raw oysters provided by Rotary, fried oysters made by the members of the Mill Neck Rod and Gun Club, and clam chowder provided by the Life Enrichment Center of Oyster Bay. There is even separate seating by the Oyster Food Court so you can slurp in comfort and go back for more. Experience has shown that is what oyster lovers do. Professional shuckers are hired to keep the flow of oysters coming and local volunteers help out too. One of the latter is Darryl Dowers who has been volunteering for the Oyster Festival for 27 years, shucking oysters. Each year he gets a red Oyster Festival T-shirt with “VOLUNTEER” on the back. He really cherishes them. Darryl likes his clams as well as his oysters. He gets his yearly shellfish license from the Town of Oyster Bay and gets his own clams with his sweat equity right out of the harbor. And while you are there, don’t miss the clam chowder that is the specialty of the Life Enrichment Center of Oyster Bay. They have both Manhattan and New England Clam Chowder to choose from. It is also sold by the quart for you to take home for $20. It is a great way to keep the festival going as you return home from the fun of the festival. -DFK

the general public, allowing everyone to participate.” To register for a local qualifying event, visit NFLPPK.com. The NFL Punt, Pass & Kick football competition allows boys and girls ages 6-15 to showcase their talents in punting, passing, and kicking with scores based on distance and accuracy. Local qualifying events are held across Long Island during the summer, with the winners of the local events advancing to the Long Island Championships Oct. 14 in Oyster Bay. The top finishers from each of six age groups at the Long Island Championship will advance to the regional competition, to be held at Met Life Stadium during a Jets pre-game event. Age-group champions at this level will be declared NFL Punt, Pass & Kick Team Champions. The top four finishers in the boys and girls divisions within each age bracket from the pool of all team champions will qualify for the national finals at an NFL playoff game in January.

Oyster Eating Contest The contests each accept only 12 contestants — a stage-full — with additional names accepted for the wait list. All contestants must be over the age of 18. Each contestant in the Oyster Eating Contest will have a tray of (preshucked) 36 oysters to begin with. They will then be replenished with cups containing 12 oysters each. The original tray and empty cups will be counted to get the number of oysters consumed. The contest time limit is 2 minutes, 40 seconds. Contestants will be allowed to season their Oysters. Sauce and lemon will be made available. The Oyster Festival Record was set in 1998 by David Leonard of Central Islip with 480 oysters chugged in two minutes and five seconds. It should be mentioned that the oysters were small that year.
