    Thursday evening at 6:30-8:30PM, we're hosting an invitation only VIP party at the Orvis Bellevue store. We're having food, booze, sales, free reels with rod purchase, and a book signing by Kirk Werner, author/illustrator of "Olive, The Wooly Bugger" series of children's books.

    NOTE: All of you on the board that requested invitations and sent me mailing addresses should have received them. Make sure you come. There will be a very special gift for you at the door.

    See you,
    Leland.

    Leland, I'm sure a good time was had by all who were there. I had planed to be there but had some family problems and and had to cancel my plans. Sorry I couldn't make it. Hope to see you on a beach or river some time. Bob

    Had a great time seeing Bill, Steve and Derek. Thanks for a fun event, Leland. Walked away with some nice steelhead flies that I'll use for casting practice this winter.

    It was a great time. It was a terrific party. It was good to see you guys. The food was good. We didn't run out of Glenlivet or Jameson whisky.
    But the best part was that we gave a $25 gift card to everyone.

    I did my part to make sure the booze ran out, but fell short I guess! Thanks for the gift card, great food and whiskey! Picked up Ed Wards new video and Itchy's third book.

    Happy Holidays! :beer1:

    Thanks Leland and the Orvis crew for hosting a nice event. Great food, drink and $25 shopping gift card which brought a smile to my wifes face and was totally unexpected.

    Have to "ditto" all of the above. It was a great time. I too, tried real hard to empty a few of those bottles, especially the Glenlivet 15. Thanks to Leland and the Orvis Crew.
