    Why is the ABA web site *again* void of anything to do with this banquet??? Seems like they wait until the last week before updating their site I have some questions...do I PM you or one of the board members??? Thanks for your input.

    No you do not have to be a member to come. No family discount sorry. During the day (sat) we will have free seminars which are very informative. We will have another bear baiting class, bear skinning(fish and gave us a bear to skin), and other class.

    We're planning on 350 seats ... Tickets are available at the 'Den (I'll check and see where else) for $55 for adults and $40 for children under 12.
    We sold a number of tables (8 seats each) and individuals ... don't delay - With Fred as our guest this year we're expecting to sell out quickly.
    I will also post the seminar schedule soonest!

    Tickets will be distributed to Sportmans Warehouse in Anchorage and Bear Paw Archery in the valley soonest!

    We have a number of tables sold ... a number of individual seats ... this is not a marketing ploy - if you want to attend the annual awards and fund raiser - don't wait! We can not add seats ... when they are gone - they're gone.

    Looking forward to seeing you there!

    Also, as promised, I will post the schedule of free seminars soonest. We're looking at an very interesting and comprehensive talk from / with Fred Eichler, Bear Skinning class from Mike Carter, Timmy's (okay ADF&G's) Bear Baiting Clinic, Bow Tuning and a look at North America's Big "29" ... lots of good info!

    PAUL- well I called Karen at ABA office today and reserved a table. luckily i'm finally off this year. Fred should be a great speaker. I'M REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO 7 FEB.

    Rick P - Don't think of it as just a night out it is also to to support the largest, most active organization that works hard to increase your bowhunting opportunities, AS WELL AS PROMOTING ARCHERY IN SCHOOLS.
    if you can't make the banquet usually day time activities are worth the trip. hope to see you there.


    ALSO KIDS BETWEEN 5-12 THAT HAVE PAID DINNER GET A FREE BOW AND SOME ARROWS, UNLESS PREVIOUSLY AWARDED ONE.

    Unhappy

    Well I am batting ZERO on trying to obtain a ticket (again this year). Bear Paw has never been able to get any. Archer's Den is out last I heard. The ABA voice mail box is *Full* and will not take messages. Maybe I will just Email Paige directly to see if I can get one.

    I would also like to see about getting 2 or 3 ticket or maybe a table.
