This was incredible night that couldn't have been possible and carried out so smoothly without so many people. So here goes - Filipe Figueira and I would to say: thank you to all those that splurged on tickets and brought your "raputurous, pin-dropping attention" and big appetites for food, literature and ale; enormous thank you to all the incredibly hard-working volunteers: Dale & Shelley Henderson; Bob Tracey; Jonah Weyler; Elliot, Sharon and Claris Figueira; Suzan Denis; Linda LaClaire; Martin the WWOOFer from Germany; thank you to Mixed Greens and Luc Bugeaud who smoothed out the spaces with melody and vivacity; deep gratitude to Peter and Meinsje for all their time and work before and during and after the event; wheelbarrows of love and thanks to the writers: Monica Nawrocki, Tara Warkentin, Rex Weyler, Judy Williams, Grant Lawrance, Michael Ableman, and Jan Zwicky; and thank you to all those that donated including our anonymous donors who donated enough to keep the Young Writers Prize going for another 3 years! Much thank to all our door prize donors: Heather McKenzie; Marnie's Books; Fairhaven Farms; Coho Books; Bead It Custom Made Jewellery; Ann Mortifee; Ron Bazar; D&M Publishers; Harbour Publishing; Lube-X Fast Oil Change; Coho Books; Save-On Foods. Lastly, thank you to our sponsors: Coastal Community Credit Union; Gorge Harbour Marina; Carol Newell; Julia and Marcel; Steven Lippman; Happy Valley Farm; Driftwood Brewery; Townsite Brewery; Hollyhock; Cortes Natural Food Co-op; Cove Restaurant; Wild Harvest Salmon.
