Dipnet Fee Utilization

A new dipnetting season is rapidly approaching and the Chitina Dipnetters Association is hard at work. The $15 dipnet permit fee we supported in the Legislature is in full effect now. Vaulted toilets have been installed at O'Brien Creek and the parking area just above it. Garbage collection is more efficient and timely.

Membership Drive

The Chitina Dipnetters Association is once again holding a membership drawing for all new and renewing members! The prize list has not yet been finalized, but instead of offering a single grand prize this year, we're going to have multiple very nice prizes. We're busy right now deciding what those prizes will be and negotiating with vendors to buy them. All memberships are automatically entered in the drawing.
