Port Renfrew Marina is closed for the winter as we all know. We did want to post some bits of information that may be of some interest to some of you. We received a thank you letter from Maurice Trembley who runs the San Juan Hatchery and anyone interested in reading it will find it below. The letter is to inform people of the monies they have received from the different derbies the marina has held, most specifically the Labor Day Derby, the Coho Derby and the Davey Derby. Also some of you may be wondering about the well being of our previous caretakers, Wayne & Gwen Coleman. Clint is still very seriously ill in hospital and is making some slow progress but is going to need ongoing care. Anyone who would like to help the family out can go to the website set up for them and you can see any updates and donate if you care to do so. The site is http://colemanfamilytrust.wordpress.com/ .
Port Renfrew Marina now has a new caretaker. His name is Desi Hatchard, some of you may recognize the name as he was one of our guides at the marina. If you need to contact him the caretaker number is 250 483-1486. The main office number is not hooked up until next April.
We, Bud and Tedi, Rex and Diane would like to send all our customers a a wish for you to have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and we hope to see all of you again in the coming new season at the marina. Be safe.
Bud, Tedi, Rex a& Diane
