A group of volunteers from Yahoo! will serve as lock tenders on Saturday.
A volunteer team of lock tenders from Yahoo! will operate the restored Flight of Five Locks between 10 a.m. and noon on Saturday.

The manually operated lock gates , installed on enlarged Erie Canal Locks 69 and 70 as the Phase I project for the restoration of the Erie Canal Flight of Five Locks, will be worked by a team of the six volunteers, lead by David Chatt.

They will open valves to fill the 19th century engineering marvel with water, manually opening the five-ton wooden lock gates using wooden balance beams, and emptying the water from Lake Erie into the canal basin below. The Yahoo! team leader will be David Chatt.

Simultaneously, one lock tender operates the mechanized Erie Barge Canal Locks 34 and 35 adjacent to the Flight of Five for canal recreational boaters and sightseers.

The locks demonstrations and Community Market operate every Saturday through the end of September.
