Membership Drive

The grand prize membership drawing for winner's choice of a brand new Can-Am 4-wheeler or a Skidoo Tundra Sport was held June 30th. Bill Swift of Fairbanks was the lucky winner. We'd like to express our gratitude to all the new and renewing members so far this year. We haven't yet committed to a member drawing next year, but if we have one, all memberships paid after June 30 will be automatically entered for that prize.

Your membership is the foundation of the Chitina Dipnetters Association. Membership dues allowed us to send representatives to the Cordova Board of Fish meeting in December 2014 where we convinced the BoF to raise our limit, bringing into parity with the Kenai dipnet fishery. Our membership roster made them listen to us. If dipnetting at Chitina is important to you, please support us by becoming a member. It's only $25/year and we have great prizes.
