Hell Creek Marina Legal Defense

We all love Fort Peck Reservoir. Hell Creek Marina serves as our gateway to this beautiful paradise. Over the many years of visiting this incredible place I have come to understand without a doubt that one of the main reasons Hell Creek Marina is so special is because of the people. Clint, Deb, Layne, Courtney and Tiffany as well as spouses and grandchildren are what make the place . Anyone who has ever been a guest or frequented the Marina will know what I am talking about. The hospitality of the Thomas family is warm and real. The service and helpfulness is unparalleled. I have been the personal recipient of extra hard work, ingenuity and assistance on more than one occasion. Where else can you go where the host can repair your boat, retrieve your four wheeler, build an impromptu bilge pump or rescue you from an unexpected predicament without blinking an eye.  Where else can you go that is as wonderful and primitive, and have the added assurance that if you get in a bind, there is somebody at the Marina that is essentially a magician when it comes to all things repair or rescue. Above all, there is always a genuine effort to get you on the fish and make every last detail of your trip what you want it to be.

The service as we know it at Hell Creek Marina is at great risk. Clint and Deb are in a legal battle to continue to operate the Marina as concessionaires. They have dedicated the last 17 years of their lives to making the Marina what it is. There has been great sacrifice and effort to make the Hell Creek Marina experience what it is for all of us. 

In addition to all of the anxiety, stress and frustration that this fight includes, there is also a great cost.  LEGAL FEES alone are mounting and pose a barrier to the continued fight for what we all want-Hell Creek Marina as we know it, ran by the Clint Thomas Family.

I invite everyone that has ever been the recipient of the Thomas Family's hospitality, rescue, ingenuity, guidance, assistance, patience, or friendship to help me help them with their legal fees. Lets all share in lightening this load and show our love and appreciation for the Thomas family.   

Information about the legal battle can be found at Friends of Hell Creek INC.

100 percent of funds raised will go to pay for legal fees incurred in the defense of maintaining Hell Creek Marina as we want it to be.
