Resident Weekend Ends with a Big Catch
Posted April 30, 2012
Spring Resident Weekend at The Hun School concluded with a customary resident faculty pot luck dinner. This year, however, in addition to the faculty favorites, students contributed more than 50 fresh-caught fish from the Atlantic Ocean to the popular feast. Eight student members of The Hun School fishing club rose early on Sunday, April 29th and headed to Point Pleasant, New Jersey with faculty members Vivian Piel and Tom Wilcox for a day of fishing.
Dustin Raiffe ’12, an avid fisherman, caught five Bluefish and two Stripers on Sunday’s outing. He cleaned, prepared, and deep fried the daily catch, serving the fish with tartar sauce. The group mostly reeled in Striper and Bluefish, which became the featured menu items at the Sunday night feast.
Fishing club co-advisor Vivian Piel said, “It was incredible. We were able to feed every single person at the pot luck with the amount of fish we caught.”
The pot luck dinner was the culminating event of a weekend of activities and events for students and faculty, which included Founders Fest and the Annual Student Talent show.
