Local NWTF chapter dinner and auction Saturday

This coming Saturday night, March 21, the San Juan Gobblers will host their annual dinner and auction at the community center.

Doors open at 3:30 p.m., with different games for everyone and viewing of the auction and silent auction items. Dinner is at 5 p.m., with live auction to follow.

Also, for the first time, a local high school senior has won the Colorado NWTF state scholarship and has a 1-in-50 chance to win the NWTF national scholarship. The senior will be honored, with the family, Saturday night at the banquet.

So, if you want to enjoy an evening of fun with family, friends and fellow hunters, come join us Saturday night and you could win some great door prizes and items only at the NWTF banquets.

Ticket prices are $50 single, $70 couple and $15 for Jakes. Some tickets are still available. You can contact Kim Lynch, 731-9172; Lindsay Hoover, 264-8746; Bob Curvey, 264-2415; or Mary Ellen at the Ski & Bow Rack, 264-2370.

Since 1973, the NWTF has grown to more than half a million members and volunteers, and has helped restore more than seven million wild turkeys in North America, plus has helped acquire or improve habitat on 13.9 million acres of public, private or corporate lands.
