Thanks for a successful salmon feed


July 1, 2010

Another wonderful bike event and highly successful fish feed. Wow! Approximately 850 people ate kings, salmon that is, all free! Our fleet provides us with much of our income in Haines, including fish taxes, property taxes, sales taxes, and fish! Thanks, gang. Have a great season. A special thank-you to Gregg Bigsby, Haines Packing "Feed ‘em Fish," Hugh Rietze and crew, NSRAA and Steve Reifenstuhl, ‘The Fishpickers" and especially those people whose last names I can’t remember who worked their sweat glands to make this another nice, successful event three years running.
