Dungeness Crab & Seafood Festival 2012  9

Jamestown S’Klallam tribe brings culture, heritage and fun to festival

Volunteers needed!

The Jamestown S’Klallam tribe, 7 Cedars Casino, The Cedars at Dungeness Golf Course and the Longhouse Market are all excited to be presenting sponsors of the Dungeness Crab & Seafood Festival. Elaine Grinnell, a tribal elder, will be presenting at the festival’s opening ceremonies at 11 a.m. Saturday. She is a highly accomplished, revered and world traveled historian and Native American storyteller who also teaches Native American cooking, drum making and basketry. The Cedars at Dungeness is not only an amazing 18-hole championship golf course, but the property also features a fantastic “19th hole” in Stymie’s Bar & Jamestown S’Klallam tribal elder Grill and Double Eagle Steak & Seafood restaurant. Elaine Grinnell cracks a crab at the opening of the 2011 festival. During the festival weekend, Matt Eveland, golf course food and beverage manager, will be serving up delectable food in The Gateway Center. Afterward, check out the nightlife at 7 Cedars Casino with its nightclub “SEVEN.” 7 Cedars Casino is located on U.S. Highway 101, five miles east of Sequim. The casino is open every day from 9 a.m. Located next door to the 7 Cedars is the Longhouse Market featuring a grocery, deli, café, gifts, gas station, a walk-in cigar humidor and tribal smoke shop and a fine liquor store. The market is open 24/7. Check out the 7 Cedars Casino Properties website for the most up-to-date information and to learn more about the tribal campus, the people, their cultural history and current events.







The Crab Festival needs your help! Volunteers are a vital part of its success. For information about volunteering, phone 360-452-6300 or visit Many helping hands contribute to a well-run and happy event — and remember, volunteering looks great on a resume!


All the serving plates and beer glasses at the Crab Festival are made of compostable materials. This is part of an effort on the part of festival organizers to protect the environment and will eventually lead to the composting of everything used in the Crab Central tent. Lazy J Tree Farm will compost the crab shells and corn husks left over from cooking.

your own crab $5 gets you 10 minutes to hook a crab! Join us at the High Tide Seafoods and Wilder Auto Grab-a-Crab Derby area where everyone who attends the festival has a chance to not just eat, but catch their very own Dungeness crab. For just $5, you get 10 minutes to entice a hardshelled crustacean onto your hook. (Canadian dollars accepted at par.) No license or gear required! At City Pier, live crabs are held in two 2,000-gallon tanks provided by High Tide Seafoods. The event is sponsored by Swain’s General Store. To make things even more interesting, selected crabs will be tagged before going into the tank. If you’re lucky enough to catch one of these tagged crabs, then the crab is yours! But even if your crab isn’t tagged, you can still purchase your catch. The Peninsula College men’s basketball team will be on hand to clean and cook your crab on the spot for a small donation. Crabs will also be sold to the public throughout the weekend, even if you don’t join in the Crab Derby. This is the freshest crab you can buy! The commercial crabbing season opens in October, which is why the festival is held the second weekend of the month. High Tide Seafoods will once again be catching crab for this year’s crab feed and derby. Every crab will be live — plucked from local waters — when it gets to the festival. High Tide also provides the tanks and personnel for setup and cleanup, cranes to move the tanks and they pump the water from the bay to keep the crab fresh. A crew of local volunteers led by Monte English, Leslie English, Kevin Kennedy and Jim Haguewood will work behind the scenes to keep the derby rolling along. The derby is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Peninsula Daily News

Learn about local marine environment and the Elwha River restoration The Feiro Marine Life Center (FMLC) is an aquarium located on Port Angeles City Pier, right in the center of the Crab Festival. Visitors are invited to stop in and learn about the local marine environment. At the Feiro visitors will marvel at the variety of marine life on display, there are hundreds of examples of inter-tidal creatures, fish, and plant life as well as “dry” displays to enjoy. Staff and volunteer naturalists will be on hand to guide you and answer all of your questions. A touch tank provides a chance for visitors to meet marine life up close and personal. In addition to the salt water exhibits, Feiro is home to two new interpretive displays that focus on the Elwha River restoration project. Inside a the center visitors can see an interactive model of the Elwha River. Outside the Feiro, on the south side of the stage building, is the new exhibit, “Port Angeles and the Elwha River: A Century of Change.” Through photographs and text, the exhibit tells the story of the impact that the hydropower generated by the Elwha River had on the industrial development of the Port Angeles waterfront. There are already two historical murals on City Pier. One depicts life along the harbor before European contact, and another illustrates the Puget Sound Colony in the late 19th Century. The new exhibit uses historical photographs to depict the tremendous changes that have taken place on the waterfront during the 20th century: from industrialization to restoration. The Feiro Marine Life Center will be open during the festival: Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free.

The Juan de Fuca Freethinkers will sponsor educational activities for kids in the Feiro Marine Life Center Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Activities will be a mixture of art and science leading children to understand the evolution and life cycles of crabs.

Visitors peruse a new exhibit called “Port Angeles and the Elwha River, A Century of Change” that tells the story of the hydropower generated by the Elwha River and the industrial development of the Port Angeles waterfront. The exhibit can be found outside the Feiro Marine Life Center, located on City Pier right in the center of Crab Festival. For more information, visit www. Dungeness Crab & Seafood Festival 2012  11

Let the manner of your arrival reflect the grandeur of your destination.

Sure, you can drive to the Olympic Peninsula. It’s possible that you’ll enjoy a few glimpses of the mountains between the billboards and strip malls. And with a little luck and a lot of determination, you may even arrive with a few tattered shreds of enthusiasm intact after battling traffic and tolls, ferry lines and log trucks, for hours of your life that you’ll never get back.

Several flights daily • Alaska Airlines MIleage Plan • Preferred-rate rental cars available


Alternatively, if slogging your way to the Peninsula with hundreds of worn-out fellow road warriors doesn’t appeal to you, consider a grand entrance instead. Fly Kenmore Air Express . . . The Peninsula’s Airline. Not only is a Kenmore Air Express flight from Seattle to the Olympic Peninsula unforgttebly scenic, it’s also amazingly stress-free. With a flight time of only 35 minutes, no onerous security lines, and a friendly, professional staff, you’ll arrive relaxed, refreshed and ready. In fact, you’ll feel like your grand Olympic Peninsula adventure has already begun.
