THE 2019 CRAB FEED HAS BEEN CANCELLED:
We are very disappointed to announce that the 2019 GCA Crab Feed scheduled for February 14-16 is officially cancelled due to the robust winter weather we have been experiencing. Our concern for the safe passage of our members and guests to and from the event is paramount. There are just too many uncertainties over the course of this coming week to continue as planned.
Accordingly, the GCA will offer two options for current ticket holders:
- Avoid the lines, hold on to your ticket for next year’s crab feed
- Return your ticket for a full refund
- If you chose to have your ticket refunded:
You will need to mail your ticket with a self-addressed, stamped envelope by March 31, 2019 to:
P.O. Box 999
Allyn, WA 98524
Attn: Crab Feed Refund
Ginni will locate your ticket on the master list. GCA Treasurer Mike Winckoski will send you a check.
IMPORTANT: Checks will generally be issued to the GCA buyer on record. GCA buyers may need to notify persons in their groups about the refund procedure. This notice is only available via email and the Grapevine to GCA members. Only one check will be issued for groups 5 and larger. GCA buyers for these large groups will need to arrange refunding the members of their groups from the check issued in the GCA buyer’s name. If your tickets were purchased by a GCA member, but you have them in hand, you can mail the tickets in a self-addressed, stamped envelope by March 31, 2019 to Ginni Boughal and we will match the numbers with our list to get you your refund. Requests for refunds without a ticket will not be honored. Please be patient, we’ve never had to do this before. Thank you to all the members, guests, volunteers and donators who have supported the GCA Crab Feed this year. We look forward to resuming this great community event again in 2020.
