Boise Party Note from Bill

Dear Keen folks (and John):

Thanks so much again for providing the impetus (with your bike ride and film) for our Celebrate the Payette Party Monday night in Boise. By all accounts it was a wild success and a fun evening.

Some highlights:
We had more than 200 people through the door during the course of the evening... And fed and watered them all.

While those in attendance were mostly IRU members already, 10 new families joined on party night.

We covered our expenses and raised $1,000 on top of that for our conservation work.

We got some decent press coverage from the Idaho Statesman.

Stan and Jo sold some stuff — part of the proceeds from those sales came back to IRU.

And our members had a fine time of celebration and great music and beer without being pestered... For once... For money.

All and all, a very good night. Thanks so much for your part in it. Have a safe ride to SLC, and I’ll see you all on party night.

If you love a river. . .
