    Another little incentive for new folks to come check out our banquet this year... each new or renewed membership will receive a free Cyclops LED Flashlight with the RMEF logo. They are pretty cool and hey, you can't beat free!
    So call and reserve your tickets and join us for a great night of raffles, games, silent and live auctions and just a good time all while supporting a wonderful cause! Hope to see you there.

    I'm trying to get info on the guns we'll be having at the banquet... as soon as I know, I'll share it with everyone. So far I do know we'll have a chipmunk .22 and a Remington Model 597 Pink Camo .22LR w/ 4x32mm TRULO scope. So for the kids or ladies in your life... they might enjoy one of those.

    Also, dinner is going to be prime rib and halibut which is always a great dinner! Progressive tickets are going fast, so be sure to get your tickets early. See you on the 31st.

    The progressive rifle is a Remington Model 700 SPS .257 Weatherby in Realtree AP HD camo.

    The hunt for the grand prize winner is a premium 7-day Colorado elk hunt for two by Elk Basin Outfitters in the West Elk Wilderness.


    Sounds like a great hunt and you can't beat the odds on winning the rifle either (only 100 tickets to be sold), especially if you get the Progressive ticket package which is 6 for the price of 5 at $100.

    Thanks for asking and thanks to everyone that has already gotten your tickets. Good luck to you!

    When you buy a ticket, you will be buying a 1 year membership along with the dinner. It's included in the price. We do still have some tickets available, so give a call and we'll get you all set up. Thanks for the interest.

    Also, we always like to hear feedback from anyone who has been to other banquets. Let us know how you think we did, what you liked, etc.

    You can contact either Jeanne at 745-2234 or Amber at 376-8839.
