Part 2, V.I.P.
I hesitated to use the term V.I.P. in this book because it has always been AlpenView’s policy to treat all our guests as V.I.P.
The people featured in this part are included, not because they are singled out to receive special treatment, but for the following reasons:
*Most are veterans of ten or more trips with AlpenView.
*Many began their adventures on Kodiak Island, with Dave Jones, prior to AlpenView in places like Olga Bay and the Ayakulik River.
* Most have visited both the lodge and camp and most have made multiple visits in a single season.
*All have shared our experience with several of their friends and family. This patronage has resulted in a significant portion of our overall business.
* Many have hosted AlpenView staff in their homes and acted as tour guides sharing their home towns and country sides with us.
* Many have hosted or joined us on fishing and hunting excursions in the lower 48 and Hawaii.
We love you guys!
