8th Annual Banquet MARCH 14, 2020

Recommended Posts

I hear all the time "I wish Ii knew it was happening on such and such a date". Well it will be on March 14th at the Doubletree in Henrietta, NY. Doors open at 4:30 PM and Dinner is at 6:00 PM.

There have been some members on here that have attended and I think they will confirm that this is a pretty good event. The prizes, meal and number of quality firearms that are there will not disappoint. 

So save the date and come see us for an evening of fun. This is the only fundraising event that we do as a branch and it provides the funds to put on the programs each year. 

 

I'll be posting highlights on here as we secure donations and prizes. 

 

If there are any HuntingNY members out there that would like to provide some sort of support to the branch in a form of donation of product or service, reach out to me. We have been successful in all kinds of relationships from guided hunts and fishing charter, to products and Taxidermy services and working out an arrangement that works for both parties.  Great way to get your product or service in from to many potential consumers.

Mailer is going out the end of January for ticket sales but the online is up and running now. If you want an early Christmas present. 

Finished some of the line up lat night and it is initially looking like 20-21 Firearms will be finding a new home this year.

Just wanted to give this a little bump since the mailer will be going out this week. Our ticket sales are going very well considering it's all early and the mailer isn't out yet. Early Bid deadline is Feb 22. Don't miss out.  If we can get enough members on here to fill a table (10) I'll get one reserved so you all can sit together. Typically we don't 'do this but I figure that since I "know the guy" that can get it done, I might as well abuse my power. lol

The selection for the gun board this year is just about complete. (this was last year's). BUT since we didn't have a chance to fully complete the game with the Patriotic Rifle last year, we are doing that again. 

 

The table raffle prizes have already arrived and this year looks like a very "cool" prize for sure

This year we are trying to give those in a attendance more options for games to take part in. I will say that this year we will have more firearms than ever before.

If anyone that has attended the banquet knows, we run a  Gun Board Game.  This was the board last year. 50 tickets sold for round #1. Winner takes the gun they want off the board. Sell next round and that winner selects from what is left. Continues until they are gone. Last year they went fast. 

 

He is a partial listing of what will be on the board this year.

We are still waiting to hear the exact date for this Live Auction Item but I anticipate late August or First week in September.   @WNYBuckHunter had the winning bid on this item last year. I think he will tell you all how wonderful this pace is.

One highlight of our banquet is our General Raffle. (bucket Raffle). We typically have between 45-50 packages and tickets are sold for $20 each. Each ticket has a stub and 5 tear offs with your ticket number on them. You select which prizes you want a chance and winning and place you tear offs with your number in them. The night of the event $20 gets you 5 chances. in the early bird it is a 2 for 1 when you but the $100 or $250 package. SO in the $100 package  you would normally get 5 tickets with 25 chances.. during the early bird you get 10 tickets with 50 chances and. 

Well last night I was updated donations and prizes lined up for the General Raffle.  Currently there are 5 firearms, one cross bow and a wide selection of other hunting related products including blinds, tree stands, shooting related products much much more. The average retail on the packages is currently at $175 each. Here are some pics of last years General Raffle.

I couldnt recommend this more. The neighborhood is nice and quiet, the house is amazingly beautiful, and the location is very convenient to a ton of great restaurants, plenty of shopping and a number of area attractions. Last year will not be our only vacation there.

Here are a few pics from our stay last summer. The first two are from my drone, in the first one you will see the proximity of the house to the beach, its the one with the reddish orange roof. The second pic is from just above the house looking East toward Atlantic Beach, where the closest retail shopping and restaurants are. The third is sunrise from the 3rd floor deck.
