The Angling Community Is A Giving Bunch--Waypoints Conclusion

We had people waiting at the door 25 minutes before opening.  From that point on I knew we were in for a great evening.

The Spokane premier of Waypoints to benefit the Wild Steelhead Coalition is in the books, and watching folks generously open their wallets for conservation is a really special thing to see.

And they kept doing it to the tune of over $4300.

A big thanks to the Kalispel Tribe of Indians for their major donation of the banquet room at Northern Quest Resort and Casino.   The substantial room fee was donated free of charge and allowed us to net a much greater sum of money.

The event wouldn't have had the draw without the guides who donated their trips and the companies that freely gave product donations.  They substantially add the event's draw and in turn the money raised.

(Yours truly trying to sound coherent)

The three city benefit for the WSC went off without a hitch.   So a gigantic thank you from this humble blogger who is just a small part in the conservation machine of anglers, guides and companies that made Spokane premier of Waypoints a gigantic success.

We'll be at it again this spring.  Stay tuned
