How cool is this...I got a text from my guy, Alex, from last year. He sent me a message on Superbowl Sunday saying he just sent in his application and requested me as a boat. Bring on the humpies!

We are registered for the 3rd year in a row. This is a fun and rewarding event, if you have a boat and the time, I recommend doing this. Moderators, can we make this thread sticky? I want it to reach as many people as possible.

There is a fund raiser on March 21 at the Summit Brewery 1830 Bickford Avenue - Snohomish, WA on March 21. They are introducing a new beer, Freedoms American Pale Ale. It goes from 12:00 noon until 10:00 pm. Come on out and enjoy a beverage or two, not enough to impair your driving of course, and help out a good cause. All proceeds from beer will go to the Salmon for Soldiers org.

Google Maps tells me I'm 19 minutes from Sound to Summit Brewing, so I'll try and make it.

I don't have the pride of the fleet, but I can pull one or two guys off the waiting list.

Come on, if you have a boat at least check out the website.  They are already full with a waiting list, there is a huge need for boats.

Anyone know how to order a shirt?  Website says Harbor Graphics, but link goes somewhere else.  Both of the shirt websites don't have anything listed?

Hey Carl, you may end up a deck hand if you don't mind. Last year my wife got sick and couldn't make so I had to scramble to find someone to help me out. I'm sure there will be a few that may need someone to drive the boat while they set gear.

Is it too late to volunteer?  I don't have a boat but could possibly help out in another way?  :dunno:

No it is not too late to be a volunteer, I am the Coordinator this year. Shoot me a call and I will give you some directions of what is needed.

Not a bad idea but keep in mind....the entire event, before, during, and after is 100% dry.
