RE: Willard renddezvous
The last time I was in Petersburg, my wife and I attended a gathering at the Sons of Norway hall. We had a delightful dinner and were entertained by some of the town's women who performed old Scandinavian dances. The atmosphere was terrific! My biggest enjoyment, however, was watching the skippers of the smaller fishing boats pulling up to the cannery and unloading. These guys would pull their boats up to the unloading docks at a very high rate of speed, shift into reverse, gun it and stop on a dime. I can still remember how inept I felt at my own single engine skills.
It's a great little town.
