Its that time of year already!? Geez this year cruised along!
I attended last years fundraiser and it was a great event. Friendly volunteers and folks doing what they can for a great cause. Last year this event took some heat on this forum, hopefully it will not draw the same negative attention from a few...
Those TUNA fisherman may find large bags of herring for cheap a good thing to have on board for next season....chum cha chum chummmmmm
why isn't this on VI?
How many folks in Richmond need Herring?
I was thinking the same thing. A second sale in the greater Victoria area would generate a lot of interest.

Ě believe it`s being look at......perhaps red tape..
Years ago they used to do it in Namaimo. My dad would buy a couple of buckets and pickle them.
I don't see how there would be red tape for an event that donates a portion of proceeds to Cancer?
