It saddens the NFDA to announce that Doug Davis passed away June 7, 2008, after a long and courageous battle with cancer.  Doug was the founder of the "Fish Fry" at the annual "The Gathering" held each year in Perham, MN. His contributions to the NFDA and his friendship will be missed.

Doug started and carried on with the tradition of a great Fish Fry at Perham's "The Gathering" show each April. I was at the last fish fry and Doug put on a fantastic feed. Thanks Doug and keep up the great work where you are at now. You will be missed.
