What do you do when you win a raffle prize of a couple bushels of oysters for your family? You throw a party. At least that's what Jen and Rick did 8 years ago when they won ACME Seafoods bounty of fresh molluscs.  When Dave the owner got wind that there was going to be a party thrown with his oysters as the focal point, he offered up he beachfront property on Samish Island as party centeral.  The do gooders came back with collecting a bunch of loot from the party goers and donating it to a cause.  8 years later, Daves still donating all the seafood (oysters, clams, mussels, crab and salmon), Rick and Jen are still throwing the party and it's turned into 200 or so people raising over $8G for a non profit farming organization that helps people start and run their own farms.

We borrowed Tonto's vanagan for some luxury accomidations, beachside.

Crabs, lots of them.  When we ran out, jumped in the boat, pulled some pots, and brought more up.

Grappa's just as nasty at an oysterfest as it is in Italy.
