We’re finally coming out of the most extreme COVID restrictions, but with too little time now to properly plan an indoor full-size fund raiser dinner and auction. We are planning a smaller, lower-key event for Saturday, April 9. We hope to host an outdoor event at Pierson Park in McKinleyville from 2 – 6. We’re still putting together all the details, but the rough outline is HASA will provide barbecued hamburgers, hotdogs, condiments and non-alcoholic beverages. Side dishes and salads will be pot luck. We plan to have a few silent auction items, a raffle item, and participants will be free to bring their own excess fishing gear to sell or swap with one another. As the date approaches we’ll be selling tickets: probably $10 per person or $20 for a family (up to four). If at the last moment the weather forecast turns ugly for the 9th, we’ll try again the 23rd.
