    most of it will be a buck a ticket, but I think the guide trips might be a slight bit more...either way, bring your scrilla...

    just a scosh over a week away and things are shaping up nicely

    Simms just threw down on some raffle gear

    Mike Doughty graced us with some narsty streamers

    A friend from Woodcraft in the valley is donating a beautifully hand crafted landing net

    We're looking at a royally massive pile of raffle prizes....remember, 3 guided trips are there too.

    Also, a generous portion of the proceeds are going to Bill McMillen's study on developing a baseline for historic returns for steelhead in the Columbia Basin above Bonneville Dam. So in other words, our eastside rivers gentlemen. We cant fully go forward unless we understand where we have been

    Here's a link to that study the Wild Steelhead Coalition and Mr McMillen are working on
    http://wildsteelheadcoalition.org/2...mbia-river-steelheadsalmon-abundance-project/

    Please, please, puuuuuuurdy please come on out and enjoy a great night...

    Bring cash!!

    Thanks to everyone who came out and help, supported, bought raffle tickets and had a good time. After our expenses such as building rental and rental of the film....we netted over $2,000 for the Wild Steelhead Coalition. Boo yah

    What are the chances of an event like this making its way over to the east side? I am willing to bet it would be well received.

    Huge, huge thank you from the entire WSC--board of directors to members--for the energy and time commitment that went into hosting this fundraiser and raising $2,000 for the Wild Steelhead Coaltion and helping directly fund our work on wild steelhead recovery.

    Wild steelhead sure could use more people like Josh...

    ...well done, sir, well done.
