Group 20 – Mixed Friends – August 19 to 22

Mixed friends, some retournees and some new friends from the Seattle area spent this week at the lodge.

Our favourite family from Hawaii, the Santii’s were our retourning customers this trip and Mark Santii, an Orthopedic Surgeon was just what we needed to deal with our one armed hostess! As soon as he arrived, Mark got everything explained and interpreted properly – we only wish he had arrived a month ago! Lori, Mark’s wife who is a famous sports announcer and analyst for the University of Hawaii, and their son Brock who will be starting his first year of college in September, were also part of this group.

Our engineering team from TLG Aerospace were another big part of this trip. These boys had lots of fishing time together as well as lots of meeting time on the back deck. We just hope that enough work was accomplished!

Unfortunately, the fishing slowed down for the majority of this week. Although all of our guests came back to the dock with some Salmon, the big ones were hard to find! This blogger is sure hopeful that more will be flowing through in the next couple of days!
