    I am sure there are stories people have about the Riffestock AEG party or the jam on the OP. Good times!

    Here is the poster:

    Please pass this info around the internet. I want this to be the biggest salmon saving event of the year. If anyone has anything they would like to donate, please contact Joeseph or Darcy.

    Let the celebrations and libations go unforgotten!

    Sounds like a good time. Nothing like beer and fishing (at least watching it) on a Friday. :rofl:

    Kitsap Commuters?

    Is anyone from the Kitsap Peninsula going over for this? I'd be interested in getting up or joining in a car pool and either going over by ferry (seems the better option that time of day...) IF there's enough interest.

    Heck, I'd even be willing to be a designated driver.
