Horner made island party a success


Let’s give big kudos to Marley Horner. His first year as ambassador of our annual Pyramid Island party was a smashing success! All the planning and forethought was worth every minute of stress he endured. Planning a party of this magnitude is an overwhelming experience. It worked out so well thanks to the combination of weather, seas, tides, and friends. Well done, Marley Horner.

Also, it was great having Phil Wilde make a special guest appearance on the island to do one of his private events. What else can we say other than it was nothing less than spectacular.

Also, Devine Funk played a really long, live electric set that was generator-fed, and it was turned up to 11! Those guys are always welcome out there.

The shuttle boys David Benjamin and Josh Benassi did a great job bringing the river boat to provide safe and fast transportation out to the terminal moraine. It was great to see 20 or so individual canoes, kayaks, and rafts scattered all over the beach.

Again, great job, Marley.
