Board of Directors
In mid 2007, the founders of Yule Feast; Blacksun and Shadowhawk decided to step down, citing a loss of interest in continuing the festival, especially after 2006′s festival had been shut down due to the severe windstorm that slammed into the Pacific Northwest that weekend. Three long term members of the Yule Feast committee; Pete Lazzaretti, Ian Marlow and Ron Shaw stepped forward on Grandma Fussie’s urging and took over the operations of the festival.
In 2008, after having a successful rebuilding year for the 2007 festival, the newly formed Northwest Yule Feast board of directors Incorporated as a non profit organization in the State of Washington and are in the process of applying for federal 503(c) non profit status.
