Salmon Bowl 2014 needs host families... please consider hosting a high school student or two!
On February 28th 2014, high school students from Oregon, Idaho, and Northern California are coming to Corvallis for two nights to compete in the annual regional Salmon Bowl competition. In the past, we have been able to cover travel and lodging for participating schools to make this an equal-opportunity event, but our current financial situation makes this very difficult. In light of this challenge, we are looking towards our wonderful Corvallis community to offer up a bed or two to one or more of these students, or coaches, so that we can keep their costs down. Please email Saskia at email@example.com if you are interested in being a host for two nights!
