Pimping my event
« on: January 09, 2018, 08:59:50 AM »
hey all...
I'm just putting this out there if anyone is interested in having a good time, enjoying a decent meal, supporting a good cause and local youth hunting and HS trap teams... oh, and you just might win some great prizes.

I started a local Delta Waterfowl chapter. We are the SE Metro chapter.  We will be doing things like supporting local HS trap teams by donating money to them. We'll be sponsoring youth waterfowl hunts. We'll be hosting a firearms safety shooting day where we supply the ammo and targets. And maybe a few other things...

How do we do this? We hold a fund raising banquet. The cool thing about Delta Waterfowl, unlike other hunting groups (DU, Pheasants Forever, ect...) all the money raised doesn't go to the mothership. We keep a percentage of the money the chapter raises, in the chapter, to do local things.

Our banquet is Thursday, Feb 22nd at the Cottage Grove VFW (The Red Barn) right off hwy 61 in Cottage Grove.
Doors Open 5:00 PM  |  Dinner 7:30 PM

Youth (17 and under) tickets are just $20
Single Ticket $55
Couples Ticket $85
Table of 8 $500 includes reserved table and 8 meals and 8 Delta memberships
Table of 8 w/ Gun $1,000 includes reserved table, 8 meals, 8 Delta memberships and a gun for the table

Purchase tickets by 2/15/18 and be entered to win an Alps raffle bag & $200 in General Raffle tickets!

if you are on the facebook... here is a link https://www.facebook.com/events/2254418711451099/

here is a direct link for info and ticket purchase. https://deltawaterfowl.org/se-metro-chapter/

Hope maybe some of you are interested. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via PM.
If a gun kills people then I can blame a pen for my misspells?

ya, we got guns... good hunting gear from heavy hauler, yeti... decoys. 
We'll have some guided trips  (both hunting and fishing).
And did I mention it's for a great cause?  A portion of the proceeds stay local in our community.
Sign up and bring a friend, or bring a kid.
Every kid that comes is going away with a great swag bag.
