The Victoria Boat & Fishing Show took place this past weekend and Eagle Nook Resort & Lucky Sportfishing had a booth set up for our second year at the show. Although it’s a smaller event than some of the other shows we attend in the pre-season, it’s an awesome opportunity for us to meet local fishermen (and women) and stay involved with the Victoria fishing community.
Another great event that takes place the same weekend every year is the Pacific Salmon Foundation Dinner & Gala, hosted at The Fairmont Empress in downtown Victoria. The dinner and auction support salmon conservation and rehabilitation projects throughout British Columbia and the Yukon, and it’s a guaranteed good time for all who attend. At last year’s dinner Eagle Nook picked up an inflatable paddleboard from the auction which was put to good use by our guests at the resort last summer.
We had a large group of past and present members of our team join us at the dinner and it was great not only to catch up with old friends, but also to see so many people out in support of the Foundation and their many projects on the west coast. We’re already looking forward to 2018!
