Resources to help victims of the Oso slide.

This slide hit too close to home. There is enough information out there already, but the biggest question I hear is, “How can I help?” Let’s be honest people think that they are too busy to get out and volunteer their time. Here is a great article from the Arlington Times including:

 The Arlington High School commons, located at 18821 Crown Ridge Blvd., will host the local leg of a nationwide Zumbathon for disaster relief from 6-8 p.m. on Thursday, April 10. All the money raised will go directly to the Cascade Valley Hospital Foundation fund for Oso disaster relief at Union Bank.

• Silvana Fire District 19 is donating all proceeds from its annual pancake breakfast and raffle, from 7 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 12, to Oso firefighter Seth Jefferds, who lost his wife, grandchild and home in the Oso mudslide. This event will take place in the Viking Hall, located at 1331 Pioneer Hwy. in Stanwood.

• Mirkwood and the Shire Cafe, located at 117 E. Division St., will continue its concert series of local artists, to benefit the Cascade Valley Hospital Foundation fund for mudslide relief, at 6:30 p.m. on April 12 with musical performers the Skablins, Woodshed and the High Council, for an admission fee of $5 at the door.

• Fred Meyer and QFC will extend the collections of donations at their check-stand coin boxes through April 12, due to the overwhelming support from customers and employees to assist the victims of the Oso mudslide in Oso. Fred Meyer and QFC will also be matching all customer and employee donations up to $15,000, for the Red Cross of Snohomish County, to assist in their aid efforts.

• The Norpoint Shooting Center, located at 8620-A 172nd St. NE in Arlington, is staging an Oso relief barbecue from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, April 13.

Gink and Gasoline Great Post.

Dreaming of fishing, I stumbled across this post from Gink and Gasoline. It has given me more to think about while I should be studying.

“WHEN SWINGING FLIES FOR STEELHEAD, HOW IMPORTANT IS MANAGING THAT SWING?

It seems like a simple question. I know how I feel about it, but when you start talking to folks about it you get surprisingly different opinions. I’ve been told it doesn’t matter and I’ve been told it’s all that matters. I’ve heard it matters on some rivers and not on others. So where does the truth lie?”
