    Pink Boat To Return

    ONCE IS NOT ENOUGH
    Pink Boat Returns Next Weekend
    find it and donate

    -------
    .. A pink drift boat named Judy will return to the West Yellowstone area next weekend. It is traveling the western United States in support of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, LINK.
    .. Two weeks ago the boat cruised Hebgen Lake in a successful outing, gathering gulpers and donations.
    .. The campaign and the boat are the product of a brainstorming session by a group of women and Rance Rathie and Travis Smith, owners of Patagonia River Guides, who dreamed up the concept to support some of their favorite female clients.
    ..  Yellow Dog Flyfishing's Ian Davis, RO's Robert Eddins, and marketing pro Whitney McDowell recently got together and ordered a pink drift boat from the RO Drift Boats factory in Bozeman, Montana (Eddins donated his time and the facility).
    .. The campaign now has it's own Facebook Page, and is drawing attention from the top guides in the western United States. The boat is named Judy after Ian Davis' mother who died of breast cancer.
    .. A special strong box with a slot is built into the front seat for donations to the campaign. Donations will go directly to the Montana Affiliate of Susan G. Komen For The Cure foundation.
    .. Guides who deliver the goods will be recognized. For information about the campaign and the boat schedule in West Yellowstone you can call Jennifer Holyer at Blue Ribbon Flies: (406) 646-7642 or (406) 646-9365.
