Wow, can’t believe how quickly June has snuck up on us. We are gearing up for what looks like is going to be an excellent and busy season. With our opening weekend on June 14th, we have been busy getting the resort up and ready. We have managed to have a bit of pre-season fun, with our Luckysportfishing Derby last weekend and our Eagle Nook Derby, going on right now. Besides our fantastic staff team already up here, we have also have some incredible groups of people coming up to help us out.
John Ferraira, John Hill, Steve and Rick Gordon, who have over 135 years of gardening expertise, working at one of the islands most famous gardens, came up to help us set up all our flowers and landscaping.
This year we brought in a whole bunch of new swag in our gift shop. Jan and Danielle were rockstars, setting it all up for us this year. We have hats, jackets, t-shirts, long sleeved and some artwork and jewelry, we have something for the whole family or a little souvenir to take home to remind you of your time up at the resort.
Thanks to all the guests who made it out to participate in our annual derby. There was lots of fun had and plenty of Salmon caught. It was a close race to take home the trophy this year. A big congratulations to Reklyne for reeling in the Derby Winner at 22 pounds. In a very close second, Scott Munro and his team reeled in a 21.8 pound Salmon, and just behind them in third with a 21.6 pound Salmon, “Jeff” and his crew.
Eagle Nook Derby
In typical west coast fashion, the Eagle Nook Derby has started off a little bit soggy. None the less, that isn’t stopping them from getting out there to find the big Salmons and bring home the $5,000 derby prize. Julia Raedar is back this year, hoping to defend her title. But she has got some competition with many eager guests hoping to take home the prize and bragging rights.
Still time to book
While opening weekend is just around the corner, there is still plenty of time to come and visit us here this summer. We have some space still available in July and the beginning of August. So what are you waiting for? Come and see us and we will send you home with not only great memories but hopefully also have you reeling in some prize worthy salmon.
We hope to see you this summer!!
The team at Eagle Nook.
