This year's Festivus Party will be held at Fore River Brewing in South Portland, December 8th 12-3 pm. Or until they kick us out. The fine folks at Fore River have encouraged us to bring food if we'd like, there will be a special guest appearance, and the ever popular Yankee Swap will be held once again. For those of you who are a long distance from Portland, bring the significant other and make a day or weekend out of it. A good time is usually had by some.

Updated to add we'll have a box of flies from Dave Martel as a door prize, with the proceeds to benefit the 2019 Casting for Recovery weekend. Thanks Dave! Anyone else willing to throw in a box?

I've got a few left over moving boxes. I'm happy to donate one. :mrgreen:

When does the airing of grievances start?

Will there be peanut butter, hamhocks and guitar strings for the winner of the Yukon Cornelius look alike contest ( only two contestants)?

I plan on attending unless duck missing tides intervene.

Tell us more about these courtesan shots? I've heard interesting stories from Marines coming back from the Phillipines. Oh- nevermind- you wrote Cortisone. :mrgreen:

Sorry to hear you won't make it this year Don. We'll have a toast to you and Rose and pick on Ken as much as practical without pushing him over the edge into the dark world of worm fishing. Best to you and Rose!

Happy Holidays,
-Hunter

Don- I have found that aggressively wading in cold water is just what a bone-on-bone hip likes..... Good luck in February.

I'll going to take a ride up. What is the swap value figure, if any. Are Flatlanders allowed??
