Thompson Creek Window Co. employees celebrated the company’s 15th annual Fish-A-Palooza event on Saturday.

In 2003, 11 people participated in the competition and returned to Thompson Creek president and CEO Rick Wuest’s house for a small backyard barbecue. This year, the entire company was onboard 14 charter fishing boats leaving of Kentmorr Marina. An after-party celebration was held at The Jetty Dock Bar in Stevensville, MD, with more than 375 guests on hand for a weigh-in ceremony, open bar, seafood buffet and live band.

Due to the extreme weather conditions, the only boat to catch a fish was “Bonehead,” which landed a 43-inch, 29.2-pound rockfish.

“It’s awesome to be able to give back to our company and let employees celebrate after a year of hard work with an event like this,” said Wuest.
