4CFF Christmas Party - December 2013
Friday, December 20, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PST)
On Friday, December 20, we will gather at the Bellingham Golf and Country Club to celebrate the holiday season with fishing buddies old and new! The social hour begins at 6pm and dinner will be served at 7. There dinner will include a salad, your choice of entrée, potatoes, seasonal vegetables and dessert. The three entrée options are: sockeye salmon with lemon chive cream sauce, pork tenderloin with fig and date sauce, and butternut squash ravioli (vegetarian). You will need to specify when you make your reservation which entrée you would like. We need an accurate count by the Monday prior (Dec. 16) at the latest. Dinner is $34 per plate, payable upon arrival. There will, as usual, be a cash bar available.
In addition to the festive holiday meal, there will be a number of fun opportunities to exchange gifts and perhaps win a nice prize.
The biggie this year is a gorgeous 7wt Echo TR spey rod and matching Echo Ion reel. Backing is included and you can pick out the line of your choice to put on your new weapon with a quick visit to see Ed and Scott at The Confluence Fly Shop. Tickets in the rod raffle are $5 each and will be available the night of the party.
For the Christmas Raffle, Errol is going out in style as raffle coordinator and has amassed a veritable Santa’s Bag of goodies to hand out. Remember to bring your raffle tickets from this past year and exchange them 5 to 1 for tickets in the evenings drawing.
Finally, there will be the traditional gift exchange – bring a gift, get a gift. Aim for around $25 and it need not be fishing related.
Our usual signup procedures are in place, so please RSVP as soon as possible. Because of the extra lead time required for the meal, I’ve set a deadline for all reservations to be in by Sunday, December 15 at midnight. You can make your reservation and indicate your entrée preference by visiting http://4cff.eventbrite.com or by contacting me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 360-319-1350.
Lastly, Errol needs a count of the number of women attending the party (non-member spouses and partners in particular), so if you could let me know that with a separate email I will keep track for him.
I look forward to seeing you for the party!
Tight lines and ho, ho, ho!!!
