E-mails with Ken Bouwens that Avista doesn’t see where their $2000 increases the number of dead Macks, would like a portion to go towards a total caught prize, not just biggest. Letter written to justify the money and explain the probable stockpiling of fish and problem of weigh stations time expense.
Kevin E.brought up that donors are starting to provide large amounts of money, some not dedicated to a specific project. Need to come up with a suitable project to fund. Possibly the previously discussed scholarships.
