The Roche Harbor Salmon Derby was a terrific finish to this year's official Wheel and Keel cruise schedule! Food, drink, laughter, and fish! Yes, lots of fish! Prizes were awarded for biggest, 1st, 2nd & 3rd place, as well as closest to drawn random weight. There was a raffle with many wonderful prizes to chose from, all donated by many of our local businesses. A big thanks to Gordon Lavigueure and Roger Schjelderup for an outstanding job of hosting this very special event!
Joni is all suited up for the fishing life and enjoying her time with friends!
We had good weather for early risers out on the water in their skiffs, utilizing all of their skills to catch salmon and win the big prize.
Some good catches and some just good for eating later.
Saturday evening's potluck dinner was amazing, since some of the best recipes in the northwest were on the tables. And afterward, a performance and sing along featuring Joe and Carol Young. Then, early to bed for Sunday morning's last chance to catch the winning fish! Gordon's fantastic breakfasts each morning were a big help in fueling the morning appetite. Happy fishing!
