Fisherman's Ball - May 8th

Rate this topic

12 posts in this topic

Guys...   If it helps, honoree this year is Debbie Harry.  :bigeyes:

 

It's pricey, but if you can swing it, do it.  Great cause.  

 

I managed to snag a ticket.  Since dress is "Festive Attire," I believe I'll go in waders.  Seriously.  It is, after all, a "Fisherman's Ball."

Interesting place to be for your 14th.  I was 11.  ‘79 was smack in the middle of her hot period.

 

To this day when someone asks me how it’s going, I’ll often say “the tide is high, but I’m holding on.”

To close on this, I did indeed take advantage of their listing dress as "Festive Attire."  

 

Girlfriend wore her waders.  I went full wetsuit authentic right down to the taped finger.  Only concession I made was removing the spike soles from my Korkers at the door lest I wreck their dance floor.  Boom!

Funny...I give you credit, I would have been sweating like a hostage in my wetsuit indoors. Who is the blonde in the second photo?

I was inspired by Debbie Harry and rock stars in general.  I figured if they could wrap themselves up in leather and perform under hot stage lights show after show, I could survive a night in a wetsuit at a banquet hall.  It wasn't too bad.  Needless to say, we were a big hit.  Everybody wanted pics with the fishermen.

 

Blond in second photo is Danish model Hedi Albersen.  The girlfriend didn't feel great posing next to tall super thin perfect barbie doll while she was in chest high waders and a headlamp.  :)

A few more shots Riverkeeper just posted to their site, including Debbie with her "Big Fish" award which was made out of recycled trash found in the river.
